ESSENTIAL OIL DISTILLATION
Ktima Bellou extends on a 12-acre farm; among the farm’s cultivations, many greek herbs are included, as well as a few arborescent fragrant plants.
This activity is available exclusively to our hotel guests and can take place from early June till September.
- Participants are first guided to the farm and get to know how each plant or herb was selected for cultivation, based on the area’s altitude, microclimate and traditions.
- Guests collect what nature provides every season and distil their own essential oils.
- Till the process is completed, Lazaros Bellos and biologist Konstantinos Lioutas explain in detail the distillation process, as well as each plant’s different properties and behaviour.
- In the end of the distillation and depending on the plant used, each guest will take a small bottle of essential oil or flower water with him, as a foresake of this rare experience.
