Handcrafted Kombo Butter

FROM OUR HANDS TO YOURS

Kombo butter is made from the seeds of a tropical West African tree called Pycnanthus angolensis, which is also known as the "African nutmeg". The fruits had been going to waste but now Agnes Amoah, the first farmer to sell kombo nuts to Baraka, has encouraged other women in her community to collect them too. This helps to provide a source of income and has also prevented the kombo nut trees from being cut for timber. The tall trees provide natural shade and ecosystem biodiversity for cocoa crops.

ALL NATURAL

No chemicals, additives, animal testing, or harsh industrial processing. Just pure, natural wild-crafted kombo butter.

COMMUNITY IMPACT

Every time you purchase Baraka’s kombo butter you have a direct impact on the women, families, and communities in northern Ghana. Not only does your order provide the dignity of income to hardworking women but helps support educational and economic projects in the community.

HOW TO USE

    Kombo butter

    I love the characteristics of the butter and the recipe. What would be very helpful is to suggest some fragrances or essential oils to use to mask the scent of the butter. I notice that other companies carry kombo butters but it’s white. Does that mean it’s refined therefore reduces the healing properties of the butter?

    Hi and thanks. That is a great idea on the essential oils. We are developing more recipes that use Kombo Butter and I will ask our team for more information for you. I hope you can also share what you use and how it works I have never seen or heard of white Kombo Butter. Kombo butter is naturally a dark red from the colour of the seed/nut it is made from. It would take a ton of bleach to make it white and I wouldn't want to use it
