The following was on doTERRA's Facebook page. Please be sure to buy purchase the items you want from the Holiday catalog on November 1. I have a feeling this Rwandan peace basket will be the first to go!
The story of the Rwandan peace basket is one of triumph over tragedy. One hundred days in 1994 became known as the Rwandan genocide. While the stories of loss and tragedy are innumerable, the real story is told through the people, the landscape, the children, and mostly, the future.
Communities of people joining together in traditional basket weaving cultivated healing and harmony. Gifting the baskets to others continued the united pledge to establish peace. As women gathered together building pieces of art, they left behind healing, hope, strength, and honor.
Through the Rwandan Peace Basket project, over 2,000 women were provided work and paid a fair wage for each basket made exclusively for doTERRA.
This Gift of Peace set includes a uniquely colored ornament basket. Each basket is handmade with sisal fibers from agave plants and features a tag signed by the specific artisan who made it. A 5mL bottle of doTERRA Peace® Blend is included. Because of the unique, individual nature of the peace basket, it is not possible to choose your color and the color will be randomly selected when you place your order.
All holiday gift items will be available to order on November 1, 2016 at midnight Mountain Time. To see the catalog, click here: www.doterra.com/holiday2016
