New Fragrance in Rwanda
Ikirezi Natural Products is a community interest company that mobilizes and trains farmers to produce essential plants that are distilled into essential oils. Ikirezi, meaning “precious pearl” in Kinyarwanda, primarily works with widows and orphans in a holistic effort to restore their dignity, improve their livelihoods, and rebuild their communities.
Currently, Ikirezi Natural Products produces three different types of essential oils, all 100% organic and certified by ECOCERT:
– Geranium oil
– Lemongrass oil
– Eucalyptus oil
Geranium oil is a balancing oil that has a calming and cooling effect on the nervous system: it is useful for treating restlessness and anxiety and lifts depression. Geranium oil is a popular skin care ingredient, suitable for dry or oily skin, while repelling mosquitoes.
Lemongrass stimulates the appetite and may be beneficial for treating gastric infections and indigestion. It is stimulating, energizing and a mild antidepressant, and alleviates stress-related conditions and nervous tension. Lemongrass oil blends very well with eucalyptus and geranium oil.
Eucalyptus oil is a powerful decongestant and is particularly good for treating respiratory tract infections such as colds and flu. People with muscular pain and rheumatism benefit from its pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties.
