Please support the Afghan Rose growers and their communities.
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.

One of our favourite ways to use this product is to massage a
couple of drops just under the collar bones (both sides), usually there is
a hollow area here, it is an area where many of us close in or contract
ourselves around the heart (our shoulders hunch or become rounded). This
technique supports us to open up the heart area, to become aware of when
our bodies are contracting, and to be open to love.
