Au­gus­tinian nuns ar­rived in Que­bec City in 1639 and brought along cen­turies of apothe­caries’ knowl­edge that still suf­fuses the quar­ters of this con­verted monastery with anise, thuja and car­damom. Le Monastère des Au­gustines’s Re­gen­er­a­tion stay fea­tures in-room dif­fusers filled with fra­grant oils, like the “good night” for­mula with sooth­ing san­dal­wood and green man­darin zest, which the ho­tel’s herbal­ist says has a slight hyp­notic ef­fect. For an at-home sis­ter act, pick up es­sen­tial oils in the gift shop in­spired by the nuns’ orig­i­nal for­mu­las.
