Scents of Namibia brings to the world unique fragrances from the arid north-western region of Namibia. It is a wholly community owned enterprise specialising in sourcing plant products and producing essential oils. Because of the extreme environmental conditions plants in this area contain distinctive fragrances that are then captured in the essential oils which can be used as an ingredient in cosmetic formulations or aromatherapy.
