Join David Crow for an extraordinary webcast about his recent month-long journey to the Mediterranean in search of aromatic treasures. Accompanied by stunning photographs taken by Sara Crow, David will share stories of their travels through the south of France and to the islands of Corsica and Sardinia, meeting numerous distillers, visiting farms and forests, and learning about the native plants. On Sardinia they discover Paleolithic sites and study the island’s ancients cultures, and on Corsica they find a world of vibrant botanical species and a thriving but complex essential oil industry. In the spectacular coastal mountains they find the rare gem that was the goal of this quest, the finest oil of immortelle. Gathered by hand from the dry rocky slopes, the oil from the helichrysum flowers is an elixir with great healing powers, and an aromatic gem that transforms those who come in contact with it.
