In the middle of the plant

Our 100% pure and natural frankincense essential oil comes from boswellia carterii or the frankincense tree, native to Somalia. The tree is cut to let the gum-resin flow from the incisions.

Frankincense is the exudate of a bush that grows along the Red Sea and is considered the oldest perfume in the world. The Boswellia carterii tree is the most widespread source of frankincense used in perfumery. Long utilized as a purifying fumigation in religious rituals, it adds a heavenly touch to perfume compositions with its woody, slightly spicy notes. En savoir plus : Frankincense is collected in the frankincense valleys of Somalia. Such as benzoin, collectors incise the frankincense trees to cause the gum-resin to flow from the trunk. The substance hardens in the open air. A few days later, collectors gather the “tears” of solidified frankincense. These hardened droplets are sorted to remove impurities, then dried. They come in different shades of yellow and their size ranges from a few millimeters to approximately two centimeters (one inch).
