From Taiwan to Idaho via Hawaii
Here is our first distillery we put up last September in Taiwan; now we have two distilleries in Taiwan. How many of you like your Hong Kuai and Xiang Mao? Aren’t those beautiful oils! Oh, my goodness, yes. The gentleman with me in the photo is Dr. Xing-jin Li, who spoke at our last convention.
By now you all know how committed I am to conservation and reforestation. The trees that are cut down in Idaho are replaced the following summer when we plant new starts.
We all love our Sandalwood oil and understand how the tree is threatened because of overharvesting. I have been searching for a sustainable source and recently spent time at the Haloa Aina Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood plantation in Honokaa, Hawaii.
I appreciated what Royal Hawaiian’s Jeff Lee said about meeting me, “Thirty seconds was all I needed to see Gary’s principles and character. No one will ever have the background and training he has!” I look forward to visiting with Jeff again about his beautiful Hawaiian sandalwood plantation.
And I can’t forget Idaho Blue Spruce. We distilled this for the first time in January 2012. How many love Idaho Blue Spruce? Yes. My goodness. A true energy booster, among its many other benefits.
