WHAT TO EXPECT /ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION
The experience will lead you into the discovery of the scents, colours, shapes, textures and properties of the mountain’s most important medicinal plants. You will feel the beneficial power of simple wellness and sensory stimulation practices, including breathing, meditation and barefoot walking. You will live a relaxing and regenerating experience and take back with you ancient wisdom that will support your everyday life.
The experience will take place in the Peio nursery, inside the Stelvio National Park. Olga Casanova Farms also cultivate medicinal flowers and plants in their other two bio-certified nurseries: in Fazzon, along the road to Caprioli Lake, and in Valpiana (Ossana).
WHO ARE WE
As an aesthetician, I’ve been involved in the enhancement of personal well-being for years. At some point, I realised that there were no products in the market respectful of both the body and the environment and this opened in me the desire to create products based on natural ingredients. With my husband’s and brother’s support, I made a big change and decided to grow my own mountain flowers - edelweiss, arnica, calendula and medicinal plants - to use in the production of my own cosmetic products. Today, our bio-certified production goes from sowing to drying and we make sure that throughout every stage of the process we are aligned with our North Star: being respectful of the natural environment.
Now I’m helping people enhance their well-being with a 360-degree approach that nurtures my clients’ body and spirit and I do it with passion, dedication and commitment.
WHAT WE SUPPY
The naturopath will be available to answer any questions you have. During the experience, you will taste our natural herbal teas and receive a gift that you will find useful back home.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE
The activity is for adults with an interest in phytotherapy and natural wellness.
If you have children, we will keep them busy with a variety of recreational activities organised in the botanical gardens while you relax in nature without a care.
We invite you to wear long trousers and comfortable shoes. Also, bring with you a windbreaker rain jacket and a water bottle.
Meeting point at Olga Casanova’s Botanical Gardens in Via del Fotanino, Mezoi (Peio).
