Epikurion History

epikurion – effective organic cosmetics

Our history

epikurion Apollon is a temple in Greece which was built by Iktinos, the same architect who also built the Pantheon temple of Acropolis in 659 BC in honour of Apollo.

According to mythology, 2.500 years ago the inhabitants of the village of Figalia in the Peloponnese region of Greece were afflicted with an unknown disease, later healed by a medicinal plant that remains unknown to this day. Modern historians believe that it could have been a plague epidemic. The approximate 60.000 inhabitants of Figalia village fled their hometown in desperation to guard themselves against the disease, but the disease caught up with them. During their troubled journey and after approximately 30km, they came across an unknown plant which they used in hope that it would provide some aid. To their astonishment it was discovered that this plant was a natural remedy that contained powerful abilities to heal them. To show their great appreciation and reflect the level of gratitude, they built the temple of ‘Epicurean Apollo’ at the location where this plant was found. The name of the temple actually means: ‘the healing Apollo’. It still exists today and is part of the UNESCO-world heritage..

Our company name epikurion is founded upon this story. We focus on rediscovering the lost knowledge of our ancestors to use and make innovative high-tech products available for our posterity. The symbiosis of ‘new’ and ‘old’ will be newborn in epikurion: all of the epikurion products contain the secrets of past prescriptions.
