Overview
More
In the oral Cretan dialect,athos means blossom.For us,the blossom symbolizes the beginning of creation.Thus,we have created a workshop of handmade natural personal care products in Angeliana.Based on organic Cretan extra virgin olive oil,in combination with pure raw materials of Cretan land,we create soaps,cremes and herbal extracts.Our desire is to care for people in absolute harmony with nature!
