The Herb Gardens
Discover the most picturesque place inside Cyherbia Botanical Park!
Get back in touch with nature, waking up all your senses! Your eyes will see different shades of green, flowers, lizards and butterflies. Discover the culinary herbs that are used in all delicious traditional Cypriot dishes. Smell the intense aroma of aromatic herbs we extract oil from. Touch the leaves and let them leave their sweet scent on your fingertips.
Upon entering the park, you will receive a brochure with a written guide. The guide has information about each garden; the uses and benefits of Cypriot and Mediterranean herbs we grow on site. Children get a fun, educational game sheet, where they will do scavenger hunting around the park. They will also identify good and bad bugs and also learn about herbs that are good for well-being. When they return the game sheet to a staff member, they will be given a prize.
The most spectacular and must-see garden is the Lavender Gardens! This garden is open in June until early July, when Lavender is in full bloom.
All herbs we grow are organic, we cut by hand and extract their oil in our distillation room on site. We also pack them in tea bags to use as tea or for cooking. You can browse our natural products in our shop at Cyherbia, or click here for the online shop.
After your walk in the herb gardens, you can go to the distillation room. A staff member will show you how essential oils are extracted with our two distillation machines. You will also learn about each essential oil’s unique uses and benefits for well-being and aromatherapy.
The best time of year to visit the park? Each season has its own beauty, it looks different throughout the year. The park is greener in Spring, Summer and Autumn and during these seasons, we have the biggest events! Fairy Festival in Spring, Lavender Festival in the beginning of Summer and Pumpkin Carving and Halloween in Autumn.
