Today on the blog we’re talking about Dokimon’s homeland – Mount Athos.
Mount Athos is situated in Northern Greece and is one of the last virgin places on this planet. Its environment is free of any pollutants and of the harmful consequences of industrialisation and modern civilisation. Mount Athos also stretches 50km into the crystal blue Aegean Sea, showcasing spectacular scenery at every turn.
The large diversity of its fauna and flora have remained unchanged through time. For more than a thousand years, in its twenty monasteries a vast amount of experience and knowledge in the growing and production of natural products has been collected and archived, based on tradition and the study of manuscripts from the Byzantine and pre-Christian period.
These ancient relics contain the manuscripts of Hippocrates famously known as “the father of medicine” which contain advice and observations about natural products and their beneficial properties. Upon researching these manuscripts we came across the phrase “Of Hippocrates, tried and found true” indicating that the formulas of our products are believed to be effective from antiquity.
Mount Athos is home to Dokimon. It is the thriving wonderland that grows all of the organic ingredients within our range. Our ingredients include organic calendula, lavender, chamomile, geranium leaf, St Johns wort, olive oil, honey, beeswax & propolis.
