 Manousakia Flowers:

Manousakia flowers are very popular in Greece and they also happen to be an endangered species! Did you know that? Manousakia are not just beautiful; they’re also medicinal and have been used by herbalists and traditional healers for centuries. So what exactly are Manousakia flowers? And how can you buy Manousakia seeds? To find out, continue reading this blog post about everything you need to know about Manousakia flowers!

What Are Manousakia?

Manousakia flowers are, without question, one of the most beautiful flowers you can use to add color and style to your home or office. Bouquets of manousakia have a long history in Greece, where they were traditionally given as wedding gifts for luck and fertility. Even today, many Greeks still give these traditional bouquets at weddings. In addition to being a popular flower used in bouquets, manousakia can also be used in cooking.

How Should I Care For Them?

It’s important to know how to care for these delicate beauties in order to keep them looking their best over the long term and prevent common problems that occur when they’re improperly cared for. If you know how to care for them properly, they’ll last far longer than other flowers available at most florists.

The good news is that Manousakia are easy to care for and don’t require much effort. In fact, all you really need to do is place them in a sunny spot with access to plenty of water, as they’re somewhat drought tolerant. Make sure to protect them from strong winds or cold temperatures, as too much exposure can cause damage.

Where did I find them? 

I found them at Chania’s local food market. Manousakia Flowers smell heavenly.

What a blessing to have one of the most beautiful beaches in the world just for your self, right?

I have participated to many press trips that brought me to Crete island and guess what!! No one of them had Seitan Limania beach on the plan with the places to visit…There might be a reason for this though…getting down to the beach can be tricky, and the same goes for the way back…

How did I finally get there? Two friends from Athens came to Crete island, Stefano and Dimitris, rented a car and we drove to the beach altogether. Seitan was our first place to visit on the list of one week’s road trip. For me it was also the highlight of the road trip!

Crete's most beautiful beach

My 3 top tips for visiting Crete’s most beautiful beach:

Bring hiking shoes with you, along with a pair of beach sandals.

Be extra careful cause the mountain path is quite steep.

Visit the beach in April, early May, or end of September, so that you can also have it all for yourself!
