Organic Frankincense, Somalia
Our organic Frankincense from Somalia has smoky/lemony top notes balanced with sweet woody/resinous body notes; the drydown is clear, soft, balsamic. In 2005, our supplier helped create and continues to support three harvesting cooperatives in the Sanaag Region of Somalia where resin is sourced for distillation. These co-ops are a means of sustainability for both the communities and the ecology of the region. Regarding Boswellia carteri and Boswellia sacra essential oils, recent research indicates that their chemical compositions are similar enough to be considered from the same species, however other attributes are sufficiently diverse as to support species differentiation.1
