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 guests of a beautiful farm in the middle of nowhere with superb 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.

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.

TAKING CARE OF US
(a wellbeing special day)
A day of complete care of us, to enter a dimension of relaxation and abandonment. We are Roberta's guests, in her country house surrounded by almond trees, plants and flowers, a place with an open and meditative energy.
We start with a little yogic-meditative practice to get rid of all the thoughts and tensions of the outside world.
We continue with a path of knowledge of aromatherapy to learn the properties of plants and distillation, "listening" to essential oils with their smells and the sensations they arouse in us.
This will be followed by one hour of full body massage with the oils chosen for the person and their specific needs, while the partner can relax in the shade of a large carob tree.
At the end of the two massages we will delight ourselves with a light and tasty lunch, the result of a search for local and absolutely genuine products.
An exclusive day for us, to find a moment of peace and nourishment, a connection with ourself and the beautiful sicilian nature around us ...
