Community based extraction of essential oils to manufacture aromatherapeutic products.
The community around Kakamega forest, western Kenya will grow several plants and extract essential oils for manufacture of healing balms and other products. A steam distillation equipment will be placed at the community demonstration plot. Income from this project will compliment revenue from agriculture practised by this community. The community will further learn to appreciate their local biodiversity in alternative uses.
