Program Overview

Immerse yourself on a journey of the senses: At the forefront of Lavender!

One of the most popular scents globally, lavender has many uses other than perfumery, such as the strong benefits for health and consumption!

This 8-day program consists of two workshops with lavender in terms of aromatherapy and cosmetics- best highlighted in visits along the itinerary, as well as with two unique projects that have substantially changed the lives of the locals, particularly local women.

How? Through a cooperative consisting entirely of women from the village.

The ‘Lavender Village’ (or Lavanta Kokulu Köyü) project is both - an important source of income, as well as a tool of empowerment by providing women a sense of pride and accomplishment.

We will also discover Lisinia nature Project, which combats the pollution of nature and works for the continuation of natural life and its inheritance to future generations. And it is all thanks to lavender!
