GERANIUM OIL : KENYA
Stopping male suicide, creating livelihoods, farming against all odds.
On the foot of Mt Kenya, Reece met 74 smallholder farmers that work with Lush Cosmetics to grow and nurture Rose Geranium oil. They are practising and developing alternatives to using conventional chemical inputs and pesticides, for healthier future soil.
Mt Kenya farmers are often left with no market for their produce, leaving copious amounts of waste. Rose Geranium Oil provides an alternative, guaranteed income stream for the farmers.
