Cō-Impact Sourcing Trip - Bulgaria
Bulgaria is a country rich in culture, beautiful scenery, and an agricultural heritage that produces many of your favorite doTERRA essential oils—Lavender, Melissa, Helichrysum and more! Bulgaria is home to Esseterre, doTERRA’s premier distillation facility and scientific lab, which not only sets the standard in distillation of the plant material grown in Bulgaria, but also leads the way on the art of distilling many resins from around the world including Frankincense and Myrrh. On a Cō-Impact Sourcing Trip to Bulgaria during the world-famous lavender harvest, you will have distillery tours, service opportunities, and sightseeing.
