Farmers in Afghanistan earn twice the income over the illegal poppy crop when they grow orange blossom and rose. Barb is on a mission to find other businesses to buy from her suppliers, Abdullah Arsala in Afghanistan has since doubled his distillery, but we need to find more companies and create a movement to source from him and our other suppliers.
Then countries began to come to us asking us to purchase natural, organic and fair trade essential oils. We travelled to Haiti to source the best Vetiver essential oil in the world. Then we began to source essential oils from the Middle East, from Israel and Iran, putting them together as every day citizens do get along. It’s time to get loud with our love. We travelled to Rwanda on International Women’s Day to visit the first country in the world with a female majority government. As a result, Rwanda is the safest, fastest growing, least corrupt country in Africa.
Our supplier Nicholas Hitimana began a co-operative to support adult orphans and HIV widows who earn three times the income over the next crop of coffee with our patchouli essential oil purchases. We need more suppliers to purchase from Ikirezi to continue to build Rwanda. We then began sourcing jasmine from India that supports blind students to study perfumery and become professional perfumers. When you lose one sense, others are strengthened. And our newest country is Madagascar where we source organic, fair trade vanilla for our Vanilla Woods fragrance.
