Boswellness - USA/Somaliland (1 of 3 lectures from artisanal essential oil distillers)
The company began and follows a mission of sustainable business by reinvesting their revenue back into the harvesting community to improve access to drinking water, education, and healthcare. Since their inception, Boswellness has achieved organic certification for the harvesting co-operative, established a higher price for the resins which goes directly to the harvesters (as opposed to upstream traders) following fair trade and liveable wage principles, and installed wells in three of the harvesting villages. Boswellness continues to increase their investment in Somaliland as their business grows.
Boswellness says: “We are so thankful to be included in Botanica2016 and truly appreciate all the people and donations making this happen. Thank you!”
