How perfume bottles are made was witnessed and the skill of the expert was admired. It was educative trip. The difference between oils/extracts and branded perfumes was known. It was a good place with great courtesy and plenty of cool drinks.

Do not get influenced by the sweet talk of the person who claimed as the expert. If you decided to buy, make sure you check the goods before packaging. My wife bought Narwastu and Mihr oil which are good quality.

This review is similar to my review of the papyrus factory. It is likely that your travel guide will take you here, as our travel guide did. I suspect the guides get a commission. The demonstration was good and the sales people friendly. We did...More

In the middle east, the tour guides form relationships with different companies and take their groups there. They tell you they are going to the 'reputable' businesses that you can trust to do business with. In reality, they get a cut or perks from these...More

It's used for aromatherapy, perfume, to treat rashes, sunburn, and as an anti-fungal/anti-bacterial. I've heard it can also be used as a toner for younger looking skin.
