Study Abroad Travel Education Greece

Study Abroad Summer Session Greece
Nineteen students graduated from the ACHS study abroad 2006 Summer School. President Dorene Petersen, Master Distiller Robert Seidel, ACHS Registrar Heather Baley and a group of adventurous and dedicated ACHS students shared a wonderful, ten-day, aromatic educational experience on the Greek island of Syros. Classes and workshops included learning how to wildcraft aromatics for tinctures, infused oils and essential oil manufacture and complementary integrative medicine modalities such as iris analysis, reflexology and flower essence preparation. Set against a backdrop of clear azure blue waters with the fragrance of helichrysum and thyme in the air, classes and workshop were held at Villa Abela just 10 minutes by bus to the main town of Ermoupoli. Meals were based on the Mediterranean diet and students kept a wellness journal. Thymus capitatus, Salvia triloba, Rosmarinus officinalis and Perlargonium graveolens were harvested and distilled using a traditional steam still supplied by the Essential Oil Company. The 2007 study abroad ACHS Greece Summer School is limited to 20 students. If you would like more information contact ACHS Admissions.
