Senegal Diaries: Entry #9

ANAMBE 25/01/2012 08h00 Today we taught the locals how to extract the oils from eucalyptus leaves and use it for medicinal purposes. This was done with a giant alembic. 30 kilograms of leaves makes only 150ml of oil. This process is also great to create essential oils that can be used in beauty products like body butter and moisturizer. I think their dry African skin loved it! So to be there with the Quiksilver Foundation with a mission to educate and help create a sustainable life for these beautiful people in Anambe, I was feeling pretty warm and fuzzy!
