May Day: A Festive Blend of Flowers, Herbs, and Essential Oils with BioaromaCrete

As the flowers start to bloom and the air fills with their sweet fragrance, we can't help but feel a sense of renewal and hope. And what better time to celebrate this feeling than on the 1st of May, a day dedicated to fertility and the arrival of spring?

For many countries, May 1st is International Labor Day. This is also a national holiday in Greece, though it is more commonly called "Protomagia" meaning the first day of May. Protomagia finds its origins in ancient Greece as a celebration of nature's rebirth, spring, and flowers. In Agios Nikolaos, our town nestled on the stunning island of Crete, families and friends gather to create beautiful circular crowns, adorned with colorful flowers and herbs. These crowns are then used to decorate their homes, welcoming in the new season with open arms.

Here at BioaromaCrete, we share this same appreciation for the beauty and power of nature. Our organic farm, located near the sacred Monastery of Faneromeni, is home to hundreds of different species of aromatic herbs, plants, and trees. May Day is a particularly busy time, as the distillation of essential oils is in full swing. The brand's essential oils distillery uses the steam distillation process to extract aromatic compounds from plants. This is the most common way to extract essential oils from a plant, and it's a process that requires a great deal of skill and precision. The distillers must carefully monitor the temperature and pressure in order to extract the maximum amount of oil without damaging the delicate aroma and flavor compounds.

As we distill our oils, we are reminded of the importance of preserving our natural resources and the environment. That's why we are committed to sustainable practices and ethical production. Our farm-to-shelf concept ensures that our products are of the highest quality and potency, while also being kind to the earth.

So as you celebrate the 1st of May, take a moment to appreciate the beauty and bounty of nature. Let the sweet fragrance of spring inspire you, and know that BioaromaCrete is here to provide you with the best in natural, sustainable skincare and aromatherapy products.

Join us in welcoming the arrival of spring, and let us all work together to preserve and protect the natural world around us!
