Nature’s medicine surrounds us here. We harvest and distill aromatic plants to make beautiful fragrant potions, all done with a conscious connection to nature, present to every sound and smell. We sell them in our shop and all the money goes back into land regeneration. You are also welcome to come stay and experience the magic of distillation and how aromatics can heal people, animals and the planet.
Make your own medicine!
Aromatic plants have an important place in the eco system of the cork oak woodlands, helping to keep the trees healthy. We harvest consciously, from our hearts and with consideration for other creatures that share our living space. We pick what the plants have to offer, never taking more than a fair share, carefully shaking out any insects so they don’t go into the still. Our end product is a far cry from the commercially distilled essential oil and hydrosol that are commonly available, and when you buy them you are supporting the fight against climate change and desertification in Southern Europe. We sell retail and wholesale.
Reconnect your senses
The sense of smell is our most instinctive connection to the world. But nowadays we are taught not to trust it, to disguise our natural scent. Our noses are assaulted by synthetic fragrances, dulling our senses. Harvesting and distilling aromatic plants in the wild hills of Portugal, you are immersed in the multi-layered fragrance of nature, which re-awakens your instinctual being and reconnects you to your primal senses! If you would like to experience the delight of wild flowers and learn how to make your own medicine, contact us to arrange your holiday. Traditionally every household would make their own medicine, gathering local herbs and preparing them at home. When we distill hydrosols we reclaim this power and take control of our health. We also connect with the natural flora and fauna of this land. If you love essential oils, you should experience the process of distillation to understand and appreciate them on a different level.
