We source our pure essential oil from the Dhofar region Oman, the cultural home of the finest frankincense.
During harvesting season, around 20 experienced collectors make small cuts in the bark of Boswellia sacra trees using traditional tools. A milky liquid oozes out and is left to harden in the sun. After about 14 days, the collectors return and slice off the resin. These ‘pearls’ are taken to a local distillery where they’re steamed to extract the precious oil.
“There’s a growing sustainability movement in Oman, working to combat unsutainable practices that mean that many frankincense trees are in danger of dying out. We’re proud to use the most sustainably sourced frankincense while supporting local collectors at the same time.”Susan Curtis
