Cretan Herbs

The history of herbs begins at the same time as the history of civilization. For thousands of years, a wide variety of herbs have been used by ancient peoples. During the Minoan period the trade of herbs between Crete and Egypt was of great interest. The Minoans used aromatic herbs as well as their essential oils to make medicines and cosmetics, which they exported to other parts of the Mediterranean. Over the centuries, this activity was significantly reduced but did not disappear.

Wanting to participate and become part of this traditional activity, we started the cultivation of herbs with the aim of highlighting the importance of their beneficial properties for humans. The soil and climatic conditions of Eastern Crete are ideal for the cultivation and development of aromatic herbs, giving unique quality characteristics.
