We’re excited to bring you the latest product from our sister company, ProTec Botanica. Dhatelo Oil is obtained from a deciduous shrub, native to the Himalayan Mountains in Nepal. The plant can grow up to 3 metres high at an altitude of 2,000 to 3,500 metres in central to western Nepal.
ProTec Botanica source their organic Dhatelo oil from the remote and unspoilt north-west Himalayan region of Nepal. Dhatelo is widely found throughout open areas in the wild and is often planted as a fence around cultivated land. It is estimated that 25 – 30% of the oil can be extracted from fully ripe, dried Dhatelo seeds. With the resource being fully available in Dhatelo in Nepal and within the expected oil yields, approximately 30 tons of Dhatelo oil can be produced per year.
Through ProTec Botanica, we’re proud to be able to support the local community, whilst bringing this product to market. ProTec Botanica works closely with the co-operative management to ensure landowners and farmers are fully supported at every step of the process.
