How to Store

Introduced to European countries Italy, Spain, and France in the 17th century, Geranium was commonly planted inside homes to keep evil spirits at bay. Currently Geranium is used as flavoring in the food and beverage industries, as well as in perfumes and other cosmetics.
Eco-Projects in South Africa
The countries of the southern African region are blessed with an abundance of aromatic and medicinal plants growing in unique ecosystems not found in other parts of the world. At the same time, the suffering of poverty, AIDS, and social disturbances is widespread throughout this region. Stimulated by a growing global market in herbs and aromatic products, a new essential oil industry is developing in South Africa, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Madagascar and other countries. They utilize the botanical resources and ethnobotanical knowledge available in the region for local economic development and plant-based healthcare.
Eco-Projects in South Africa
At the moment, there are about 33 distilleries in the southern Africa region distilling a variety of cultivated and wild-harvested aromatic plants. We are currently working with one of the primary organizers and distributors for those distilleries — to offer common and well-established aromatic products and develop new ones. All of these essential oil projects are linked directly to poverty alleviation programs established for the dual purpose of caretaking local environments while producing sustainable economic benefits.
