What you'll do

We will visit my cosmetic laboratory and we will be doing for 2 hours and half handmade cosmetics with the traditional Bulgarian Rose and Lavender essential oils.

You will make your own Rose/ Lavender body balm and Rose/ Lavender lip balm. While crafting we will talk about how to use essential and carrier oils, what properties they possess, how to make infusions with herbs and other interesting topics related to cosmetics.

After we have made our first product we will share a cup of tea made from rose buds grown in the famous Valley of Roses and enjoy delicious handmade chocolate flavored with the same roses. I will give you a presentation about the rose oil, how and where it's produced, and what's so special about it.

You will be able to smell 3 types of lavender- Bulgarian, French and English and tell the differences between them!

In the end you will go home with a small bottle of 100% pure Bulgarian Lavender essential oil, dry rose buds from the Valley of Roses and your own hand made products!

非常开心来玫瑰之国亲身体验了玫瑰制品的整个制作过程。Kristina在这方面是专家,不仅专业耐心地教授我们制作工艺,而且详尽仔细地讲解每一种精油的由来以及功效,以前一些对精油错误的认识才恍然大悟了。真是让人受益匪浅!在制作完之后,老师还帮我们准备了玫瑰巧克力和玫瑰花茶,详细介绍了保国玫瑰种植以及玫瑰制品的悠久历史,解答了我们的各种疑问以及好奇!相当特别的一次体验,不仅仅是停留在动手制作方面,也很好的了解当地的文化历史!

What a great experience! Kristina is a real professional and we made some wonderful products. Over a cup of rose tea she made an interesting presentation about the Bulgarian rose and rose oil. I will highly recommend this activity to other people.

玫瑰精油制作非常有趣,kristina为我们讲解了各种专业知识,帮助我们只做玫瑰精油,为我们提供了茶和巧克力。我们去的时候下雨了她打伞在我们下车的地方来接我们并在结束后送我们离开,嗯非常好,总之是一次不错的体验,也是一场生动的化学课。
