Harvesting Spikenard can be extremely labour-intensive and difficult as the harvesters must climb the hills of the Himalayas to reach the best Spikenard. The harvesters will only take part of the plant, and then must re-plant its remains in order to sustain the growth of Spikenard in this Northeast Region of Nepal. This initiative is expanding doTERRA’s impact in Nepal, where they also harvest Wintergreen.
