Q'omaneel means healing hands. We are a group of Tz'utujil women who provide community health services to the villagers. We facilitate the production and marketing of medicinal plants on a local and regional level. In addition, we seek to be a creative source of employment and income generation for our members, who often do community service without compensation.
We want to tell you about our traditions, techniques, and knowledge that we learned from our grandparents with you. We believe this is a way to contribute to sharing our culture with people from around the world.
We believe in the healing power of plants, so we have our headquarters in a garden of medicinal plants. Here we collect the plants to process them and convert them into 100% natural products.
This garden is used as an educational tool for both community members and visitors. In the garden we teach the traditional use of medicinal plants in the Tz'utujil culture. Members of Q’omaneel offer guided tours and maintain the garden.
We grow more than 20 species of medicinal plants that we turn into the following products:
