The Antalya district (where we harvest our products) is area located on the Mediterranean coast of south-west Turkey, between the Taurus Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea has a long history of harvesting wild plants. This region of over 20,000 square kilometres enjoys a semi-tropical climate with hot and dry summers and rainy winters.
After distillation all our spent materials are recycled. Spent wood chips are sent to make plywood, the spent herbs and botanicals are sent to make natural paint and other products.
