Rosewater Distillation Workshops – Oct, Nov


At this unique workshop learn how to extract rosewater and rose oil from Damask roses at Samaria Farm.

Rosewater has been used over the centuries for personal use as a skin refresher and perfume. Rosewater is a natural skin hydrator and restorer.

At this workshop, experience every stage in the process, from picking buds at daybreak, through to distillation and bottling.

Delicious meals provided, and accommodation packages are also available in our two bedroom cabin on the property with views over the valley and our plantations.

Take home two bottles of rosewater spray, included in the cost of the workshop!

Workshop dates and availability

Workshops run from 25 October to 25 November 2018.

Maximum four people per course.
