DRIED HERBS & SPICES:
From the ancient years in Greece herbs were used as a remedy for many diseases of the mind and body. Yet, still in these years, tradition stands tall and dried herbs can always be found in one of our kitchen's cupboard. Amongst the truly beneficial factors, you can realy enjoy them as a hot beverage and some of them can be used also as spices for your cooking. All of our herbs are hand picked. From the purest soils we collect what natures generously provides in order to deliver the best out of it. Dried far from the eyes of the sun in an all natural way and packaged when the process is over.

SOAP:
Our soap is made with 100% pure virgin Cretan olive oil, NaOH (sodium hydroxide) and distilled water. We use the cold process method, which is the best, rather than the hot process. It may take the most time for saponification (2-3 months), but it produces the highest quality soaps.
Our soaps are truly good for your skin. Eco friendly too!!!
