gifts presented by this land, our knowledge of the herbs that flourish

marketing, so as to keep control over every step of the production
process. The selection of our herbs was made based on their
taste, on the benefits to human health, on their traditional
use over the centuries in the form of tisane, but also on their
indigenousness to the micro-climate of Crete. Our mission
has been to offer them to you directly from nature.

On the way to Omalos and the entrance of Samaria gorge you can meet great sights for photos…The secret is that each sight has a wonderful story….
During the past… farmers crossed the path of this area on their donkeys or mules. Both human and animals were amazed by herbs’ smelling. That was the reason why everybody called this area “myristika”, which means smelling area.
