Wild harvested in the Andes
A Quechua lady who is a friend of us goes high up in the Andes mountains to harvest this amazing flower petals. This is a time consuming work because she handles every petal with care while the thorns try to sting. She does this work with attention and love so you will certainly get the best quality there is. The Wild Dagga is harvested from plants in the wild hence no fertilizers are used. Finally; they are completely organic; the way we like it.
The Quechua lady harvests our Leonotis leonorus in the high Andean mountain slopes going down into the Amazon in Pichincha province. She picks the mature flower petals only which tend to be nectar filled. If you burn them or smell them you will smell a nice sweetish odor.
