AROMATHERAPY FIELD STUDIES ON CRETE

THE FOUNDATIONS OF AROMATHERAPY

Aromatherapy starts at the fields, where humble people meet real plants, lively pollinators and all that jazz whatever goes with it to get to pure, genuine, unadulterated botanical material that is then used for our healing and well-being.

Meet the Plants

Text from AROMATIC JOURNEYS ON CRETE page (to be changed): As part of the aromatic journey, you may have the chance to join harvesting some plants and herbs of the season, learn about natural organic growing of medicinal plants, get to remote mountain villages, or even attend our artisan distillation. All about enjoying many hands-on learning opportunities that will certainly enrich your knowledge and understanding of aromatherapy in a more holistic way that no book learning can provide.

 

 

What is the goal/structure of Aromatherapy Filed Studies?

Text from AROMATIC JOURNEYS ON CRETE page (to be changed):
Come without expectations, and just expect the unexpected…

While enjoying the special landscape and microclimate with unique characteristics and extremely diverse flora, your time will be partly spent with small excursions to explore and learn about wild-growing plants of the area, harvesting some plants of the season and immersing in various herbal activities and aromatic medicine making. It is also an opportunity for distilling with a copper alembic and getting insights into the art of artisan distillations. 

Observing, listening, smelling, touching and just using your primary senses in sensing beyond the ordinary.
Beyond the obvious reasons of learning more about ‘raw materials’, explore ways of connecting with Plants and Nature, as in life, it is a flow of active and passive phases with ample time for meditative walks, relaxation, recharging, and just be in awe and inspiration.

In you come from a business background, you might appreciate all of this cutting-edge added value in your life and work, with lots of further bonuses: back to Nature!
