Herbs exist everywhere in nature and are commonly used to
deal with common problems, without us realizing that we
perpetuate an ancient knowledge. Ancient Greek doctor Dioskouros
around 100 AD mentions 400 or so herbs being appreciated
for their analgetic and therapeutic abilities. Currently
almost 70% of modern medicine is based on the therapeutic
properties of plants.
Having in mind all the above and with the advantage of the
Greek fertile soil, our warm sun and the excellent climate,
in 2002 we decided to cultivate aromatic - pharmaceutical
plants. The selection was difficult, our experience and
knowledge at the time very limited. We tried different kinds
and varieties of plants grown in farms of variable soil
texture and components, as well as altitudes in order the
best result to be achieved. In 2005 we came to the plants
and varieties fit for cultivation in the fields of Grammatico,
county of Karditsa (altitude ~100m) as well as in tableland
of Domokos, county of Fthiotida (altitude ~600m).
Thereupon e adopted the idea to establish an aromatic plants
processing and ethereal oils productioní company. Eth.Oil
G.P was established, seated in Grammatico, county of Karditsa.
Simultaneously we contracted we farmers for the cultivation
of aromatic - pharmaceutical plants, with whom shared our
gained experience and knowledge.
On December 2008 our modern installations were completed.
Were fully equipped by aromatic - pharmaceutical plants
collection equipment, as well as by ethereal oils drying,
processing and production machinery and laboratory devices
for products quality control.
Already cultivations of over 500.000m2 (125 acres) of aromatic
pharmaceutical plants have been developed. Most of those
are organic cultivations bio-products or in a transitional
stage and we aim at making all of them so.
Cultivation processing and standardization of the products
are supported and controlled by the official organizations
and companies. Our company possesses both ISO and HACCP
Our intention is to expand our cultivations to many times
the existing area. All our products are being control and
audited thoroughly through all stages of production up to
their storage in specially constructed ware-houses, thus
securing the best possible quality and protection of the
