Due to the situation there the future of the Afghan Rose oil industry is uncertain. 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 available in 2022 - so we would advise reserving what you may need now and for next year. Please contact: email@example.com
