Plants have a soul and healing properties that are distilled in essential oils.
The aromatherapy massage is an extremely pleasant and relaxing moment that allows the oil to transfer the properties of the plants into our body.
The oils we use are completely natural and distilled from Sicilian plants and flowers, a land rich in medicinal plants.
Sicily is a wonderful land rich in plants and smells.
From its plants it is possible to distil many essential oils, such as orange, lemon, wild carrot, rosemary, lavender, juniper, myrtle, etc ...
We are on the top of a hill in the middle of countryside, from where to enjoy a spectacular view over the all Noto Valley.
First we will go in search of the plants from which to distil the oils, we will learn to recognize plants, what properties they transfer to oils, what is distilled from the plant and how an oil is distilled.
At the end of the walk, under the shade of a tree we will "listen" to essential oils and receive a lesson of self Aromatherapy Massage with essential oils.
