Travel to Bulgaria’s Lavender Fields with Me: June 26-30, 2023

Endless fields of lavender. The scents of flowers and spice. The generous warmth of the summer sun. We will be in Bulgaria exploring its lavender plantations from June 26th to June 30th, 2023. I’m partnering with Silvia Yonkova of Roseoverdose, to teach a perfume workshop during the Lavender Retreat of 2023. Silvia’s family has been in the flower growing business for generations and she has first-hand knowledge and expertise on many aromatic plants, including lavender. I have already collaborated with her during her Rose Retreat, and I am thrilled to join her again for the lavender adventure. Silvia is a wonderful host and all of her events are much acclaimed.
During our 5-day aromatic tour, we will explore lavender fields, study perfume-making and create fragrant compositions with a special focus on scents that elevate and balance mood. The retreat will take place on the Bulgarian coast and it will be a wonderful opportunity to enjoy some time at the beach as well as in the flower gardens. I hope that you will join me.

Here is what our event will include:

  • daily well-being practices exploring the relationship between aromatics and psychology

  • perfume-making workshops with a particular focus on wellness

  • enjoying multiple lavender fields in the area and taking photos

  • visit a local lavender oil distillery to learn more about the production
