Maria Komini is a farmer with a long-standing experience in aromatic plant farming.
Our collaboration with her is one of our earliest with local farmers, going back over a decade; a continuous joint effort to optimize organic farming in this region.
We started working with Maria on organic Sage and she then also moved on to organic Hypericum, cultivated by her for the first time in Thesprotia.
Balsam or Hypericum Perforatum is a plant with bright golden-yellow flower and blue-green leaves, popular since antiquity for its multidimensional beneficial action.
Native to Greece, this is a plant that can be found in many regions around the country.
Balsam blooms in summer; it is taken fresh to our Extraction Lab within hours after harvesting.
