Study Abroad with ACHS: Mediterranean Herbs and Essential oils in Greece June 4-9, 2011

If you've always wanted to learn more about Mediterranean herbs and essential oils, this program is a must for you! Led by ACHS President and Wellness Expert Dorene Petersen, Guerilla Distiller Robert Seidel and Guest Lecturer Aromatherapist & ACHS Governing Advisory Board Member Mindy Green, this program provides hands-on experience working with Mediterranean herbs and essential oils for therapeutic use including: making preparations, harvesting cultivated and wildcrafted botanicals for distillation, essential oil distillation, and therapeutic blending of essential oils.

This program is held on the beautiful island of Syros, Greece, in the heart of the Cyclades, amongst wild thyme and other aromatic Mediterranean botanicals. Enjoy the relaxing, healthy lifestyle of a Greek island amidst a wide variety of Mediterranean plants and herbs. Greece is the birthplace of the “father of medicine” Hippocrates, who believed the body should be treated as a whole and that food should be our medicine. This program is an opportunity to immerse yourself in this ancient land. Syros is close to Mykonos and Santorini and not too far from the island of Cos where Hippocrates founded a medical school and began teaching his ideas. Syros is an enchanting location for this residential session.
