Albania is recognized worldwide as the country of Helichrysum Italicum / Curry – Immortelle flower. The Immortelle is our national symbol. Albanian Helichrysum italicum oil with over 50 years of history and tradition is a key ingredient in the fragrance & health and beauty industry. It has also found its place and has growing impact in the aromatherapy, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical industries.
During our 3 or 6 day trips in the peak of the Immortelle or lavender seasons, you, together with other knowledgeable I&T industry people and aromatherapists from a variety of countries, will meet the main Albania essential oil processing and exporting company Immortelle Therapy as well as farmers of I&T. Most time will be spent visiting our distillery and fields where you will pick immortelle or lavender, talk to local farmers, see a typical picker’s village and learn all about the secrets of the Albanian Helichrysum and lavender from dedicated industry specialists.
The people who will meet and greet you at our farms have dedicated their entire life to this industry and you will have the opportunity to ask and learn.
Climate-wise late June/early July is a very good time to visit the blooming flowers; the usually dry/hot weather conditions will facilitate mobility.
And last, but not least, you will have the opportunity to learn about Albania’s fascinating culture while staying at the best hotels Albania can offer and enjoying traditional homemade local country cuisine.
