Benefits of liquorice tea

Benefits of liquorice tea

At the beginning of January, I started my diet. Among other things, I stopped taking sugar in my coffee and tea and drinking soft drinks. Because I love sweet and drink in one, I started drinking liquorice tea in the afternoon. Wonderfully tasty hot tea that is also deliciously sweet, so I don’t need extra sugar. Sometimes it is claimed that liquorice tea has a medicinal effect, sometimes it is said that you have to be careful with this sweet tea. What are the secrets of this tea?

What is liquorice / sweet wood tea?

sweet wood tea
sweet wood tea

Liquorice tea is a tea made from the ground roots of the liquorice plant with the difficult Latin name “Glycyrrhiza glabra”. This plant is originally from far outside Europe, but you can now also buy this plant in the Netherlands. Liquorice contains the plant substance Glycyrrhizone and is a constituent that can be found in liquorice root extract.

Liquorice root extract contains a sweetener that is 30 to 50 times sweeter sugar. However, this sweetener is not harmful to your teeth and does not affect your tooth enamel. You can not only buy liquorice sticks in the health food store but nowadays you can also return to the candy store as a responsible candy.

Researchers in laboratories can divide liquorice root into as many as 134 different constituents that they have discovered in liquorice root, each with its own effective effect. The 4 primary types of constituents that these researchers have discovered in the liquorice root are Flavonoids, stilbenoids, triterpenoids and coumarins. * 1

  • Flavonoids often contain many antioxidants and anti-inflammatory substances.
  • Coumarins and stilbenoids are substances that are often anti-inflammatory and antibiotic.
  • Triterpenoids sometimes contain steroids.

 

Is sweet wood tea healthy?

Moisture absorption
Every tea type has its own health benefits and of course also disadvantages. Drinking liquorice tea initially contributes to our daily moisture intake of minus two and a half litres of water per day.

Stress
Liquorice helps to reduce stress because it helps the stress hormone cortisol within the body to work more efficiently. It has the same calming effect as, for example, ginger, but liquorice tastes much better and therefore drinks better.

Gastric acid
The Japanese have known the use of liquorice tea for centuries and use it with heartburn or bloating. Liquorice can calm your stomach and ensure that you get rid of your stomach cramps.

Sore throat
In the event of a sore throat or flu, a cup of liquorice tea is wonderful to soothe the sore throat. A sore throat can be caused by, for example, a lot of coughing or flu. Eating liquorice can help because the liquorice also contains liquorice. So make sure you have some liquorice tea in the cold winter months.

Cons of liquorice tea

As you can read above, liquorice has many advantages, but there are also some disadvantages. Make sure that you do not buy more than three or four teas (200 ml) per day. Too much of the tea can cause the body to retain moisture or cause palpitations. So enjoy one or two cups of tea a day to satisfy your sweet tooth if you are on a diet like me.

Anti-wrinkle cream with free shipping

The best anti-wrinkle face cream!

Looking for the best face cream on the market. A face cream that hydrates your skin and keeps it fresh and young-looking the whole day? But also helps you to prevent getting wrinkles and diminishes those little wrinkles around your eyes and front head. We have it in store for you and it is called Evergetikon Anti-wrinkle face cream.

And o my, this little jar filled with only goodies for your skin and health. This face cream has only 100% natural ingredients in it and only contains natural oils, wax and gels.

We all know the famous Aloe Vera gel, so healthy for your skin and body, it hydrates the skin and can penetrate the skin up to the 7th skin layer. Your skin loves Aloe Vera and it keeps all the goods locked in the skin keeps it hydrated the whole day long. Not only does this cream consist of only natural ingredients, that helps your skin stay longer young and healthy, it also helps prevent the creation of new free radicals.

Fight free radicals in the skin.

Your body and skincare in a continuous fight from inside the body caused by oxidative stress. This oxidative stress is caused when oxygen in the body is split into single atoms with unpaired electrons. Normally electrons always come in pairs, so these single atoms are called free radicals. These free radicals scavenge true your body looking out to other single electrons so they can become a pair again. This scavenging true your body can damage cells, proteins and DNA. Free radicals are associated with human diseases and ageing. Ageing had been defined as a gradual accumulation of free-radical damage, according to Christopher Wanjek the Bad Medicine columnist for Live Science.

Yet, free radicals are a basic and essential part of life. The creation of energy in the body is a combination of air in food and the chain reaction of free radicals. Free radicals are a crucial part of our immune system because they float true the veins attacking viruses and bacteria. So free radicals are good and necessary for the body and your health, but when there is a built-up or over-dose of free radicals, they harm the cells of the body.

We are getting an overdose of free radicals in our body caused by heavy processed food, fried foods, tobacco smoke, pesticides and air pollution. But also, the heavy chemical cosmetics we use are dangerous for us, why use Vaseline on our face of lips, it is a product of the petrochemical industry, initially developed to keep engine parts run smoothly and not rusting. Now, why should you put this greasy nasty substance on your lips and skin and where eventually it ends up in your body. Once inside your body, your body can not prosses these hard chemicals and it will Couse much harm.

Natural Oils

Next to the wonderful and o so healthy organic Aloe Vera gel in our cream it is also filled up with healthy natural oils. We combined the aloe vera with grapeseed oil which contains a very powerful anti-oxidant named proanthocyanin. When used consistently this antioxidant may even out skin tone, preventing your face skin getting different skin tones and spots. Next, we used some sweet almond oil. Cold-pressed from the nuts from the sweet almond tree, this sweet almond oil is a lightweight oil full with rich vitamins as A, B1, B2 and B.

We have added some coconut oil to our cream, coconut oil hydrates the skin for up to 24 hours and helps to improve the skin elasticity and helps stimulate the natural collagen production in the skin. Natural coconut oil has anti-ageing properties because it has natural anti-oxidants and Vitamin E and Vitamin A. Vitamin A helps to slow down the ageing process and may help to reduce the damage from Free radicals and the sun.

Next, we added some Avocado oil to our cream. Natural avocado oil is the natural oil pressed from the pulp of an avocado. Almost 70% of avocado oil of heart-healthy oleic acid, a natural omega-9 fatty acid. This fatty acid also found in fatty fresh fish is also the main component in olive oil, and believed to be partly responsible for its health benefits.

One of nature’s age-old beauty secrets is Argan oil. Argan kernel oil helps to hydrate and soften your skin. Argan oil has a high content of antioxidants, essential fatty acids and Vitamin E. Argan kernel helps to increase the skin elasticity and by daily use, it will help to restore the shine of the skin.

The Vitamin E and B-complex vitamins in the Jojoba oil in our cream help the skin repair itself and soothe dry skin. Jojoba oil has anti-inflammatory properties which help to reduce redness caused by drying and keeps the skin calm and comfortable.

Sophia Loren’s beauty secret? Extra Virgin olive oil!

Legendary actress Sophia Loren, world-known for her beauty and acting talent was born in 1934 and still is a beauty. Sophia Loren herself tells us that she credits her youthful skin and health to lifelong use of olive oil. Both in her diet and as a moisturizer on her skin. Of course, it is true and well known that “some people are just born with good genes” when it comes to ageing gracefully.

A study published in Cell Cycle shows that plant phenols found in extra virgin olive oil stimulate the healing properties of your body next to the oil’s strong antioxidant capacities. The plant phenols and antioxidant help fighting against free radicals that harm the skin cells and influence more rapid skin ageing. Olive oil contains more than 200 bioavailable antioxidants, including healthy tocopherols and carotenes and phenolic compounds.

Olive oil is been in use in the dermatology industry for centuries because of its rich vitamin E content and is been used as a lotion for the skin since ancient times. Olive oil does not clog your pores like a pure coconut oil can and has from itself a natural SPF of 8, protecting your skin against daily influences from the sun. Extra virgin olive oil has natural, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-ageing properties because it is packed with antioxidants and is full of vitamins. Olive oil hydrates the skin and builds a natural barrier on the skin to prevents the loss of moisture.

The olive oil in our anti-wrinkle face cream is a Cretan organic extra virgin olive oil. The olive oil is created during a cold process this way keeping all the wonderful and natural vitamins and strong antioxidants alive. Which is not the case by heavy industrial processed olive oils from famous brands which are obtained by heating the olives during crushing and milling and because of this heating the healthy benefits get lost.

Beeswax

We have added a little bit of Natural Beeswax to our natural anti-wrinkle face cream. Natural Beeswax has anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that are essential in fighting chapped skin and bacterial infections that tend to affect us most in the dry, winter months. Natural beeswax forms a protective layer on the skin sealing in moisture in our skin whiteout smothering and clogging up the pores of our skin.

Essential oils in our Anti-wrinkle face cream

Next to above natural oils we have added also some essential oils to our Anti-wrinkle face cream, not only because essential oils have natural anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. But also because the essential oils in our cream also serve as a natural preserving agent giving our cream a naturally long shelf live.

Rose essential oil contains a series of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. We choice the rose essential oil because it has excellent emollient properties that moisturize dry skin.

Gardenia essential oil is great for skin health. Gardenia essential oil contains anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties it helps wounds to heal faster and it prevents infections. The great anti-oxidants in Gardenia essential oil promotes faster cell reproduction, which reduces the healing time and makes the skin look younger. It is also added to the cream as a natural preserving agent.

Myrtle essential oil strengthens and tones the skin. Myrtle oil is a great natural Deodorant. The Myrtle oil used in our cream relaxes the muscles and acts and a skin conditioner. It also offers a fresh and spicy aroma.

Rosemary oil when massaged into the face can help lightens dark spots and blemishes on the skin resulting in better and healthier skin appearance. Rosemary oil is a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect the skin against free radical damage and the effects of environmental stresses on the face skin. The anti-inflammatory properties of Rosemary oil help to reduce swelling and puffiness of the skin. So, our anti-wrinkle face cream is also ideal to put a little underneath your eyes if you slept too much or are tired.

Bitter Orange essential oil has anti-bacterial, anti-septic, astringent and anti-inflammatory properties which make it great for cleaning your face skin. The main benefit of Bitter Orange oil is its ability to calms oily skin. Refreshing and balancing your skin, it is ideal for oily skin and cleans clogged pores.

Rose Damascene distillate.

Rose Damascene distillate is also known as Rosewater, Rose distillate reduces inflammation by suppressing the growth of bacteria in and on your skin. Rose Damascene has great astringent properties and is therefore great as a toner for oily skin. Rose extract calms the skin and reduces redness. Rose extracts are full in Vitamin C so they help to stimulate the creation of new collagen by the skin and are high in Vitamin E so it is very moisturizing for your skin.

    The Aposelemis gorge is a perfect alternative for people who find booking a walking tour to Samaria gorge at Chania too early or too far. A good balance between hiking and walking. Even children love this adventurous hike.

    In 2000 the people from Eye Travel in Chersonisos discovered a beautiful gorge near Hersonissos. Stunned by the beauty of nature and the easy path through the gorge, they decided that everybody needed to see it. From that moment they started organising tours in small groups (max 20 pers) through this gorge guided by one of the Eye Travel team members.

    This gorge is about 8 km long, takes around 3,5 hours to walk. Because it has some small obstacles on the way down good shoes are a must. You will see untouched nature, some birds of prey, vultures,… The real Cretan flora and fauna. Your tour guide will stop regularly for a few minutes to explain everything wonderful you see.

    You can book this tour exclusively with us. See some of the great pictures to get an impression.

    After the walking/hiking part, we bring you to a traditional taverna, to use the toilet and enjoy a small lunch. The lunch is a typical Cretan lunch with bread salads a pease of delicious barbequed or grilled meat and some house wine and water. The unique chance to relax and to share your experience with your guide and the group.

    This tour is a must when you are on Crete, in the Heraklion, Chersonisos and Malia area.

    The best anti wrinkle eye cream

    When ageing the natural oil production in the skin decreases and the skin get dried out. Their where the skin continuously stretches because of stretching of the muscles the skin will eventually always wrinkle.

Why a natural anti-wrinkle eye cream? Because they are the best anti wrinkle eye creams!

See how many ingredients are in the product and how many of them are in effect very toxic for your skin.

Your skin needs to work hard to fight those unnatural components and instead of helping your skin they have no effect. Therefore we recommend only to use a natural anti-wrinkle eye cream. Use simple products with natural ingredients and essential oils. Therefore natural anti-wrinkle creams are the best anti wrinkle eye creams. Because they moisturize and hydrate your eye skin and feed the skin from the outside-in.

    What is Dittany from Crete?

    Dictamnus herb
    origanum-dictamnus Dittany from Crete
    Origanum-Dictamnus Dittany from Crete

    What is Dittany from Crete?

    Regularly we get the question whats Dittany as I see it often in the ingredients list by the products on your website. Dittany of Crete is a Cretan herb close related to the Oregano plant family. But Dittany is not the green herb you put in your macaroni or spice up your dish. Dittany of Crete as the name says it is a small rock plant only growing at the island of Crete – Greece. It is a small plant not bigger than 20-30 centimetres and has little green leaves like the scales of fish. If the plant is growing and you pick a leave they feel thick and a bit fury like a cactus leave. The precious Dittany plant only grows in rocky mountains and sole on the Mediterranean mountains of Crete.

    During the summer months the Dittany plant flowers and has a magnificent rose to hard pink flower growing in clusters like grapes. The little flowers are hanging down and are not more than two or three centimetres big. The flowers of the Dittany plant are hermaphrodite. Meaning they have both male and female organs, and the flowers and plant are pollinated by bees attracted to their flowers and scent.


    History Dittany from Crete

    Stories go round naming Dittany the love herb and it is an aphrodisiac. In historical times the young male lovers on Crete went to the mountains and gorges of Crete. There they picked and collected bunches of the pink flowers to present them as love tokens to their beloved ones.

    In ancient Greek times, Hippocrates an old Greek scientist and Doctor and the founder of modern medication. Hippocrates was one of the first who used herbs and plants as medication. Hippocrates considered Dittany of Crete useful for curing stomach arches and complains of the digestives system. Also, he discovered that Dittany can help with healing wounds and inducing menstruation.

    Commercial farming

    Nowadays the collection of Dittany of Crete is still a very dangerous occupation. Brave are the people who risk their life and limb to climb the rocks and mountainsides where the plants are growing. Because still most of the plants only grow in the mountains hills and slides of Crete. They grow at 160 meters above sea level between the rocks as the plant is not very suitable for commercial farming or growing.

    Dittany of Crete has always been expensive to buy as it is so rare. Dittany is only gathered while in bloom during the summer months at Crete and is exported and used in cosmetics, perfumes and to flavour drinks as Vermouth, Absinthe and Benedictine.

    Today Dittany of Crete is classed as “rare” and is protected by European laws so it does not become extinct. The commercial growing, farming and cultivation concentrate around the city Emparos and the surrounding villages. They are located in the prefecture Heraklion, south of Crete island capital Heraklion. The villages are producing around approximately 30 metric tons of Dittany a year as the ground is very suitable up there for the plant to grow. Emparos is one of the rare places Dittany can grow for commercial farming as the soil is porous and a sandy clay.


    The use of Dittany in cosmetics.

    The use of Dittany oil in cosmetics is a real treat for your skin as Dittany oil helps the skin stay healthy and robust. Especially people with sensitive skin benefit from the use of Dittany as it helps against dryness and itching. If you have a mild form of acne it helps to use an anti-acne cream with dittany as it helps regulate the production of skin fat, apply of the Dittany cream on the pimples directly.

    For hair with dandruff, there are hair care products as lotions and shampoo with Dittany. The dittany in the shampoo helps to calm the scalp and restores it normal healthy strength preventing dandruff and giving your hair strength preventing hair loss.


    Uses of Dittany from Crete

    The 5 most common ways of using Dittany are:

    1. As a herbal tea both for internal as external use.
    2. As a disinfect to heal wounds.
    3. For chewing (or as toothpaste) in order to relieve the throat and clean the mouth and teeth of plaque and germs.
    4. As a bitter infused in alcohol as Raki or Benedictine.
    5. In natural cosmetics as an anti-ageing and anti-wrinkle agent.

    Dittany contains an essential oil called Carvacrol, which is a natural antibiotic, 50 times stronger than penicillin. In the leaves, there is furthermore a substance called Dictamin, which is used for cardiovascular diseases. In all, there are 70 different curative substances in the plant that can be extracted and used for medication or cosmetics.

    The primary ingredients of its essential oil were found to be Carvacrol (68.96%), β-phellandrene (18.34%) and p-Cymene (4.68%)

    Benefits of Avocado oil

    Avocado Oil

    Benefits of Avocado oil

    Avocado Oil for Skin: As the name implies, avocado oil comes from the avocado fruit. Avocado is a hidden treasure. Unlike the well-known tea tree oil, olive oil and lavender oil, avocado has yet to be discovered by many people for its great variety of health benefits. Among other things, avocado can be used as a beneficial skin care product, for special scalp treatments, medicinal purposes, and in healthy cooking.

    Benefits for the skin: Scooping the soft fruit and moulding a pack onto the face can be both tricky and messy. A far more convenient method of gaining the health benefits of avocado for the skin is rather to use the oil extracted from the fruit.

    Here are some important nutrients in avocado oil;

    Protein and Fats. Avocado contains a high amount of proteins and unsaturated fats, both of which are strong skin agents. Avocado actually contains omega-3 fatty acids – those very same fatty acids as found in fish oil. Thus, not only can this oil be used as a beneficial lotion, but also as healthy cooking oil!
    Sterolin. Avocado is high in a substance called sterolin, which studies have shown to facilitate the softening of the skin and to reduce the incidence of age spots;
    Antioxidants. The oil is rich in antioxidants, making it useful for healing sun-damaged skin. Antioxidants like vitamins A, D and E in avocado cause the skin to be suppler and are thus particularly good for dry or aged skin.
    Lecithin and Potassium. The oil contains lecithin and potassium, which are all highly beneficial for the skin as well as the hair.

    Here are more some health benefits;

    Moisturise the Skin. Applied topically helps relieve dry and itchy skin. Once applied, the oil is deeply absorbed by the skin, thus making it an ideal moisturiser and skincare agent.
    Boost Scalp Health. In addition to helping clear scaly skin, it can also relieve itchy scalp symptoms, when regularly applied to the scalp, can stimulate hair growth.
    Increase Collagen Production. When applied, the oil increases the production of collagen, which helps keep the skin plump and decreases the effects of ageing.
    Treat Skin Conditions. It is useful in the treatment of a variety of skin conditions, including eczema and psoriasis.
    Others. The oil facilitates the healing of wounds and burns to the skin. It also helps to relieve and heal diaper rash.

    What is the best Foot Cream?

    the best foot cream at ilovecrete.gr

    What is the best Foot Cream

    I often get a question, what is the best foot cream?  I have many foot creams and ointments in the store and have discussed a few below.

    First, a tip from me for people who have dry feet, eat 2 or 3 times a week a banana. Don’t throw away the peal but rub the white side on your feet because it is full of healthy B12 and other vitamins. Rub the peal on your feet and in between your tows, everything will be greasy and gelly but leave it for 20-30 minutes. Your feet will feel amazing and if you do it for 4-5 weeks once or twice a week, you will see the health of your feet improve.

    If you have extremely dry feet and even have sore feet that make walking difficult, then I recommend making an appointment with a dermatologist first. A dermatologist can then prescribe an ointment with urea in it. A urea deficiency in the skin can be a major cause of extremely dry hands and feet. Urea is a substance that is not natural and therefore not in the natural hand and foot creams that we sell to you at ilovecrete

    What we do sell are amazingly good natural foot creams to you.


    Cracked Skin Cream 100ml

    1 Cracked skin cream from OliveSpa

    The first cream is especially for people who have dry hands and feet and maybe also knees that are dry. They may even be so dry that they sometimes tear or are painful. For that, I recommend OliveSpa Cracked skin cream, a natural hand cream with olive oil, almond oil and shea butter as fatty active ingredients. In addition, Chamomile, Calendula and Aloe Vera for their calming effect and Provitamin B5 for the moisturizing and healing effect.

    100ml

    Herbal foot cream deodorant and emollient from Evergetikon 40ml.
    . .

    2. Evergetikon Deodorant and foot care

    My second choice is a foot cream that also works great as a deodorant so perfect for people with a standing job and who suffer from sweaty feet. The Tea Tree Essential oil in this cream is a bacterial killing oil and thus helps prevent odour. The Calendula and Peppermint oil provide a fresh scent. This cream helps excellent against dry and chapped feet. The combination of olive oil, shea butter and beeswax ensure a rich, oily cream that heals and nourishes.

    40ml

    The cream costs € 8.95 up here in the store.

So this is really a cream to use for the tube in the evening and you have half an hour to relax and not walk. A very rich good cream, with olive oil and shea butter as main components.

    Natural anti wrinkle creams

    Natural anti wrinkle cream

    Natural anti wrinkle creams

    When ageing the natural oil production in the skin decreases and the skin gets drier. Continues stretching of the muscles and the skin will eventually result in wrinkles. A diet of healthy non-processed food is highly recommended. But also the use of natural anti wrinkle creams is highly recommended, to replace the lost oils of the skin.

    Take any regular cream from the supermarket or pharmacy and see how many ingredients are in it and how many ingredients that are in effect very toxic for your skin. Most of those products use oils, but they are mixed with stabilisers and chemical fragrances. Your skin needs to work hard to fight those unnatural components and instead of helping your skin they have no effect. Therefore we recommend using only natural anti wrinkle creams. Use simple products with natural ingredients and essential oils. Natural anti wrinkle creams moisturize and hydrate your skin and feed the skin from outside-in.

            7 Scrumptious Greek Desserts

            7 Scrumptious Greek Desserts By Catalina Panait

            7 Scrumptious Greek Desserts selected by our friends from Alltherooms.com

            Right up there with stunning nature and centuries-old architecture, one of the best parts about visiting Greece is something that fits in the palm of your hand: the desserts. If you find Greek desserts — in all their honey, nuts, fruits, cream, bread, and sugar goodness — to be of the same cultural significance as the Acropolis and Mount Olympus, no-one will judge you (and you’re definitely not alone). Ditch your diet, forget your gluten intolerance, and ignore the (terrifying) sugar statistics because Greek desserts are 100% worth sinning for. Here’s the best of the bunch.

            By Catalina Panait

            Portokalopita (Orange Cake)

            With Portokalopita, phyllo (or filo) — a very thin, unleavened dough and a crucial ingredient in many Greek desserts — is combined with flavors of orange and cinnamon to create one of the most delectable desserts in the country. It’s a fluffy cake that’s usually served with yogurt to make it well-balanced (not in the healthy sense). Portokalopita is said to originate from Crete, but come springtime, houses all around the country are typically overflowing with oranges, and they gather their harvest to make a great seasonal dish.

            AllTheRooms’ handpicked recipe: portokalopita

            By Moving Moment

            Galaktoboureko

            We’ll venture to say that ‘galaktoboureko’ sounds far more exotic and enticing than ‘milk pie,’ so hand it to the Greeks for the savvy marketing. Whether you elect to call it the latter or the tongue-twisting former doesn’t matter so much as to how scrumptious and simple it is. A pastry with melted butter and a creamy custard that’s dipped in syrup doesn’t sound earth-shattering, but it is. More modern renditions of Galaktoboureko are served chilled (which is better), but if you’re looking to walk your palate down memory lane and truly do as the Romans did, be a purist and have it warm.

            AllTheRooms’ handpicked recipe: galaktoboureko

            By PitK

            Baklava

            Enough beating around the bush — baklava is far and away the most widely recognized and appreciated item on this list. It’s a perennial classic, a dish that is almost synonymous with ‘Greek dessert.’ It again employs the use of flaky phyllo dough, and inside its little triangles of goodness is a cinnamon-spiced nut filling that’s bathed in a sweet syrup. It’s crunchy, it’s gooey, it’s decadent — it’s all the things you want in a dessert. It also dates back to the Romans of the second century BCE, so you’re biting into a little slice of history.

            AllTheRooms’ handpicked recipe: baklava

            By Alp Aksoy

            Kataifi

            At first glance, Kataifi looks like more like a suitable bird’s nest rather than something you’d consume after dinner. The stringy pastry is similar to angel hair pasta, and its center is usually comprised of chopped walnuts, ground clove, cinnamon, all soaked in lemon syrup. If you make it on your own, feel free to get creative with almonds or a number of different toppings. Plus, with how portable the treats are, pack a batch and head towards one of the 10 Best Beaches in Greece. It’s a decent amount of prep time (over two hours), but it’s well worth it.

            AllTheRooms’ handpicked recipe: kataifi

            By pingpongcat

            Revani

            Revani is a moist and delicious dessert that’s more of a cake than the other pastries on this list. It has a light, airy texture and hints of citrus fruit that make it a standout among the fairly rich Greek dessert scene. Revani has an orange zest, and much like Kataifi, it often has a nut component of almonds. It’s super easy to make, so if you’re looking to spice up your holiday potluck with something Greek, consider revani.

            AllTheRooms’ handpicked recipe: revani

            By ZAHRA22

            Loukoumades

            Loukoumades are the Greek take on donuts, and they are extremely dangerous for those with an addictive, take-these-away-from-me personality. They’re little bite-sized spheres of fried dough that can only be translated directly as ‘honey puffs.’ Sprinkle some powdered sugar on the glistening glaze and you’ve got yourself a Greek delicacy. If you find yourself a few pounds heavier after discovering loukoumades, enroll in one of the 7 Top Yoga Retreats in Greece to get yourself back on track.

            AllTheRooms’ handpicked recipe: loukoumades

            By Fanfo

            Melomakarona

            If your Island-Hopping Itinerary for Greece happens to land during the holidays, you’ll notice that all proud households start baking Melomakarona by the boatload, which makes it one of the most essential desserts of the region. It’s more of a cookie than anything else and is made from flour, olive oil, honey, and chopped walnuts. The end result is a sugary treat that will leave you extremely satisfied.

            Booking.com

            “A beautiful luxury resort that is even more incredible than it looks in the photos. Surprisingly really family friendly, but there are also plenty of kid-free spaces (pool/restaurants/beach bars) for couples who want a bit more quiet and relaxation (the kids club is really great to leave the little ones behind). The resort is quite remote but if you’re looking to just hide out, relax and eat amazing Greek food in a breathtaking location for a week I’d definitely recommend.”

            “The resort concept makes wonderful use of the exceptional location and view. Management/Staff make everything easy for guests. Exceptional ratio (amenities+service)/(Euro paid). Will definitely return.”

            “It is hard to list down the things that I liked during my stay, from an overall perspective the resort is amazing. This was my 3rd visit to the resort over the past 5 years and I would like to take this as an opportunity to highlight the amazing staff that work hard and long hours to make our stay as memorable and enjoyable in every visit.”

            Booking.com

            “Fabulous service- reception staff so welcome and super speedy check in. Large beautiful, very quiet room with comfy bed. Food was delicious and excellent restaurant service. Incredible pianist in the bar with yummy cocktails. 2 huge swimming pools and super helpful pool/beach staff. We had such a relaxing trip.”

            “Lovely position overlooking the bay and the island of Spinalonga. Spacious, well appointed room with comfortable king size bed. Our room had a private pool which, though we didn’t actually use it, provided a beautiful setting for the outlook. It’s worth waking up early for the most spectacular sunrises…. A relaxed Greek lunch at the Blue Door next to the sea is an exquisite experience, (as was our meal at the first taverna on the right when entering Plaka). The spa is excellent too.”



            Booking.com

            Elounda Blue Palace is open whole year so also the ideal location for a stay during spring and fall outside the tourist season. Outside the tourist season, Elounda and the nearby Aghios Nikolaos are still buzzing and very attractive for a holiday outside tourist season.
