DETOX: THE WORLD OF HERBS AND SPICES
After a hearty village breakfast take a walk and a donkey cart around the village and visit the local people to get introduced in their slow countryside lifestyle. You will see how they still thread the tobacco leaves manually and how they extract honey the old fashioned way. On your way back to the house you can collect some fresh eggs right from the roost nextdoor and goat cheese from a small goat farm nearby for your breakfast tomorrow. In the afternoon you will learn how to find and collect herbs from nature, how to store them and use them in medicine (tea, tinctures, oils). You will learn all about lemon balm, thyme, St Johns wort and many more, and you will make yourself the herbal therapies for the following day of aromatherapy!

DEPARTURE DAY
After breakfast transfer to Skopje airport for flight home.

In 2010 Mrs Kathy bought an abandoned house in the countryside with a vision to develop rural tourism here. She carefully restored the house by strengthening the base stone walls, repairing the beams, setting a new loggia which is a copy of the old one and constructing a new roof (using the old tiles), water supply network, bathrooms and a solar collector. She also re-structured the older house in a corner with a summer kitchen, eaves of wooden beams and a small swimming pool. Thus, this ranch offers to the guests a unique opportunity to authentically capture life in a rural village and also enjoy the luxury of the facility with dining and living room with TV and Wi-Fi available everywhere in the house and in the garden.

host katarina

And few words about your lovely host Katarina: after she graduated biochemistry back in 1997, she worked over 20 years in international organizations on sustainable development and environmental protection. She also studied classical homeopathy and received the EDIKTA homeopathy certificate in 2013, and she is practicing Gnostic meditations for many years by now.
Her ultimate interest has always been nature protection and rural development, thus she bought an abandoned house in a village at the foothills of mountain range Dautica and decided to develop rural tourism there. She reconstructed the old house completely in the original style, and additionally she installed water supply and a solar collector, as well as a small swimming pool in the garden. Today she welcomes her guests with organic homemade food, grown and produced locally, and she teaches them to the varieties of use of natural plants in everyday life. Her workshops include courses on preparing healthy food combined with her knowledge of homeopathy, while her specialty is preparing of handmade cosmetic products from pure natural origin.
