As a result of severe over-harvesting, the Kutki plant is considered "endangered". In 2005 Banyan stopped selling this amazingly healing herb out of concern for the long term survival of the species and set about finding a sustainable, cultivated source. After pursuing this goal for 7 years it gives us great joy to be able to offer it again. CITES certification indicates that our Kutki has been sustainably cultivated in accordance with the requirements of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). May Kutki continue to be available for all those who need its wonderful blessings.*
Out of Stock Information:
CITES certification ensures that our Kutki was cultivated and traded in a sustainable, ethical manner, however, the certification process is lengthy and unpredictable. Because the process involves several agencies of trade and agriculture within India, we do not have the ability to expedite, nor accurately predict when the process will be complete.
