Xirolimni is a hilly village in Kozani county of Greece, located at the 13th km of the National Road Ioannina, Kozani. Since the construction of the Egnatia highway, Xirolimni can be easily accessed from any direction.
The residents of the village and the surrounding area of "Karagiannia" are primarily refugees from the East, very active and capable, who always grew grain and tobacco. In recent years many of them have turned their interest in alternative forms of cultivations, such as aromatic medicinal plants.
Xirolimni is located at an altitude of 700 meters at the foot of Mount Siniatsiko (local name Kagiapasi) and its plain is surrounded by mountains. More specifically it spreads from the point where Mt Siniatsiko (or Askio) ends until the edge of Mt Vourinos (or Bourinos). In these mountains there is an abundance of native species of aromatic medicinal plants such as sage, thyme, chamomile and mountain tea, which cultivation consists a tradition for local residents.
