Opium Poppy farmers have been able to convert over to organic Roses under the P.A.L. project which develops ethical and sustainable livelihoods, which NHR supports. There are no guarantees this exquisite oil will be readily available in the next year or so, and we would advise reserving what you may need. Please contact:

Due to the situation in the region, our Afghan Organic Rose will no longer be available once this stock has been sold. If you require a quantity, please contact us to reserve it -
