Wait a minuta, not all tagetes are the same!
Khush Ingredients, through its Himalayan partnership with Natural Biotech Products, are supporting a new co-operative in the Kamand Valley, located in the Western Himalayas of India, to produce a special high altitude (above 1500m) Tagetes Oil. The purpose of this co-operative is to enable local women to own and run small scale industries to better utilise their skills for economic gains and, in general, improve their quality of life.

We have committed to provide friendship, support and an export market for all the essential oils that they produce, starting with Tagetes Oil. We now have our first quantities of this years Tagetes in stock.
It is clear to us that the ocimenone levels of high altitude Tagetes give a more intense oil, with significant differences from Egyptian oils produced at lower elevations.

Best way to find out is to request a sample of our standard Himalayan Tagetes and high-altitude material and then you sense the aroma yourself.
