Welcome to Galbanum Company limited.
It is said that, “a healthy nation is a winning nation’ and thus is for us as a nation to build on our physical quality of our productive labour. We must as a matter of urgency and policy begin to introduce the ancient traditional practices of natural spices. With globalization, preference for “artificial” spices and industrialized cubes has taken the taste over the natural spices grown in Ghana and Africa as a whole. Our forests are filled with numerous plants whose flowers, seeds, leaves and barks offer a wide range of herbs spices, seasonings and healing remedies.
Tetrepleura tetraptera which is popularly known as “prekese” in twi language is a species of flowering plant in the pea family native to western Africa. It’s unfortunate that we are forgetting the wealth of prekese as a medicinal plant.
The plant tetrepleura tetraptera (Prekese) is used as a spice, medicinal and as a dietary supplement. The sweet fragrance of prekese is highly valued by most Ghanaians. When dried, broken into pieces and burnt like incense, it is believed it ward off bad and evil spirits. The smell is so strong that any passerby knows that somebody is cooking with or burning prekese. For this reason it is a symbol of power.
