Dhatelo is a deciduous shrub native to the Himalaya Mountains in Nepal. The plant can grow up to 3 metres high at an altitude of 2000 to 3500 metres in central to western Nepal.
ProTec Botanica source our organic Dhatelo oil from the remote and unspoilt north-west Himalaya 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 oil can be extracted from fully ripe dried Dhatelo seeds, and 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.
We’re proud to be able to support the local community whilst bringing this product to market and work closely with the co-operative management who ensure landowners and farmers are fully supported at every step of the process.
