    Description

    I am extracting Essential oils from wild plants in a protected area of Portugal. Last year I ve worked with about 20 diferent species, all with organic certification. I need help to collect them and process with steam in a destillery in order to extract the essential oil. Knowledge in natural cosmetics would be nice too. I have some hives and i am trying to chenge the normal paradigma of beekeeping. In the beginning of November 2018 i will start to make natural cosmetics such as natural soap and body creams using my raw materials. I will need help doing this and helping with creative ideas. I want to build a botanical garden too in order to show the flora (plants) from this protected area. Permaculture project.

    Travellers could learn about the art of extracting essential oils and the properties of the local aromatic and medicinal plants. The Village of Mértola is an old and beutifull place where romans and arabs build in the past. In May 2017 it will be realized the Islamic Festival.
