Herb Malotira

Herb: Malotira / Sideritis Syriaca

Greece and specifically the southern parts of the country, host the richest biodiversity in the Mediterranean. Crete is the largest and most fertile island of Greece, host to around 1,600 native plant species-a paradise of plants. Α 3,500 year old vessel filled with charred plant species, discovered in Acharnes, reflects the island's long-standing tradition in aromatic and medicinal plant cultivation. Lefka Ori , meaning White Mountains in Greek, extend over the western side of the island. Made of limestone and covered in snow up to late spring, they hide numerous corges in-between their peaks, including world-renowned Samaria Corge. Malotira grows on Lefka Ori.


The farmers of aromatic herbs on the island of Crete focus on optimum organic cultivation methods, aiming at superior quality.

The commercial value of Cretan herbs extends beyond Greek borders.

Among the most popular plants in folk medicine, Malotira remains a sought-after herb up to this day.

Else known as the Cretan mountain tea, it is endemic to the island, naturally growing on Lefka Ori at 1,000m altitude.

It is for the first time that Malotira was sustainably cultivated, protecting the plant's wild populations under extinction.


Our Malotira extract derives from the fresh blossoms of sustainably grown Sideritis Syriaca plant.

It is a 100% water-based extract produced with the maceration technique, via a zero-waste process.

Any solid residue is composted to end up back into the soil as organic fertilizer.

The extract is a rich source of antioxidant substances.
