Finest Origin - Highest Grade

Frankincense (Boswellia sacra) and myrrh (Commiphora myrrha) are tree resins that originate in the desert regions of the Arabian Peninsula and the Horn of Africa. This essential oil comes from a special co-distillation of equal parts Omani frankincense and Somali myrrh. In this rare alchemical blend, the natural fragrances of the myrrh and frankincense complement each other, while the aromatic compounds themselves create a powerful synergistic effect in which the sum is even greater than its parts. The precious resin is extracted by making a shallow incision in the bark of wild-growing trees and is hand-harvested periodically throughout the year. The producer is a small, established business which creates essential oils via a slow hydrodistillation process using traditional copper stills.


We source this essential oil from a small, independent company which specialises in indigenous Boswellia sacra frankincense in Oman, as well as this particular co-distillation. Using exclusively fresh, wildcrafted plant materials, their essential oils are obtained via a slow and gentle distillation process in traditional Portuguese copper stills. Within these handcrafted stills, the frankincense and myrrh resins are distilled together (co-distillation) using gravity. This method reuses the cooling water and waste produced by the distillation process, making it a highly sustainable technique.


The trees which produce frankincense (Boswellia sacra) and myrrh (Commiphora myrrha) both belong to the balsam family (Burseraceae). These plants thrive in hot, arid desert environments; the Boswellia sacra is indigenous to the Arabian Peninsula, while myrrh can be found throughout the Middle East and East Africa. The frankincense trees of Oman grow between the dry, rocky peaks of the Dhofar Mountains, where they are sheltered during monsoon season but still within reach of the bracing summer winds coming up from the sea. Commiphora myrrha is a spiny deciduous shrub with white flowers which grows in thickets on dry, rocky hills and prefers stony soils; the variety used in our essential oil grows wild in Somalia. Both plants have long been coveted, with their resins being used for ceremonial and meditative purposes for thousands of years. Since the age of the Pharaohs, both frankincense and myrrh have been used for ritual incense, medicine, cosmetics and embalming.


This special essential oil produces a perfectly balanced aroma of frankincense and myrrh, with neither element overpowering the other. It is a harmonious combination, with frankincense lending a depth to the fragrance, while the myrrh adds subtlety and lightness. A deeply resinous, woody fragrance with subtle citrus notes and a soft, lingering balsamic finish. This oil is seductive, delightful and gives way to a gentle state of calm contemplation, serenity, stability and inspiration.
