Ethical Source

Often a long chain of middlemen profit from the harvest till it reaches the corporations who process, package and distribute the finished products to us at prices astronomically higher than the return the harvesters see. Sure, there are lots of things wrong with our world. It will never be perfect, but nothing will change until we choose to change it. As indeginous person I have decided to change and help my men and women out of poverty and established a cooperative all of Frankincense and Myrrh farmers to work together produce sustainability and improvement of the lives of these farmers. These indigenous roaming people across our little globe are the stewards of some of our most precious medicinal and fragrant plants. Often these trees have socio-cultural significance to these cultures and their value is appreciated far beyond the income they can generate. They are our stewards and the caretakers of our land, our medicinal and fragrant resources around the world. They are the only ones who can monitor, care for, propagate and maintain these treasures, make sure future generations can also enjoy them. WE need to take care of these people, our planet, its farmers and wildcrafters. Regardless of perceived distance. We need to make sure our plant’s caretakers are being compensated properly, that their needs are met, their lifestyles and traditions are supported. I believe this is much more than an opportunity to source ethical resins and help out a remote minority. It is
