ABOUT THE FARM

Like Mountains sub-leases land owned by the Moletele Community Property Association. Young Moletele women have the opportunity to enter into annual learnerships with Like Mountains to learn how to farm essential oils, after which they are able to start their own production units that sell raw material to the Like Mountains distillery. These women also own shares in the marketing company that sells the oil to the public - Wilde Natural Oils.  

This project is supported by Flanders State of the Art and the IDC.

100% PURE, CERTIFIED ORGANIC & INDIGENOUS

All of our oils are 100% pure and certified as organic against the European organic standard by EcoCert.

 

Like Mountains started production with a strong focus on indigenous Pelargonium graveolens, but is also passionate about propagating and introducing other South African essential oils to the world. We support the development of markets for Lippia javanica, Helichrysum splendidumArtemisia afra, and Eriocephalus tenuifolius.
