EUPHORIA SECRETS produces all of its products in privately-owned land, processing them at its private premises, following traditional practices for collection, using, however, modern techniques, in order to retain the high quality characteristics of each product. Products are then being packaged and forwarded to the market.Hygiene and production checks take place at all stages, starting from the field until the final point of disposal, in order to guarantee consistent quality to consumers.
The company is relatively new, has its headquarters in Central Greece and has organized modern facilities and equipment.
So far products include, but are not limited to: Oregano, Sage, Thyme, Tarragon, Calendula, Verbena, Sideritis-mountain tea, Achilles and Hyssop.
All our products are certified organic and certified for highest quality by the appropriate European certification bodies. Analyses performed on the products have indicated that the main ingredient for each product is reaching the highest percentage, such as for example carvacrol in oregano and thymol in thyme that exceed 90 per cent and determine the quality of each product. Soon our production will expand to four new products, such as Rosemary, Peppermint, Ladania and Mellissochorto.
