farming taking the lead.

1. Soil Lab

The farmers of aromatic herbs on the island of Crete focus on optimum organic cultivation methods, aiming at superior quality.

The commercial value of Cretan herbs extends beyond Greek borders.

Dittany or else Erontas is one of the prevailing herbs in Cretan folk medicine, considered the grand healer since the Hippocrates era.

One of the twenty plant species depicted on Minoan civilization art, it survives "hiding" in rock slits or steep cliffs. Native to Crete, Dittany is sustainably cultivated in the fertile soil of Arkalochori for decades.

It grows in its natural environment without any agrochemical boosters.


2. Extraction Lab

Our Dittany extract derives from the fresh, blooming aerial parts of sustainably grown Origanum Dictamnus plant.

It is a 100% water-based extract produced with the maceration technique, via a zero-waste process.

Any solid residue is composted to end up back into the soil as organic fertilizer.

The extract is a rich source of antioxidant substances.
