FRANKINCENSE;
A hero worth

PROJECT FRANKINCENSE: SUSTAINABILITY STORY

We source our organic essential oil from the Dhofar region of Oman, home to the finest and most sustainable frankincense.

During harvesting season, experienced collectors make small cuts in the bark of Boswellia sacra trees using traditional tools. This process is called ‘tapping’. A milky liquid oozes out and is left to harden in the sun forming a resin. After about 14 days, the collectors return and slice off the resin. These frankincense ‘pearls’ are taken to a local distillery where they're steamed to extract the precious essential oil, renowned for its calming and aromatherapeutic benefits.

“There is a positive sustainability movement in Oman, working to support the regeneration of frankincense trees and help protect them from unsustainable practices. We're proud to use the most sustainably sourced frankincense available, that is also distilled locally therefore supporting local collectors and businesses at the same time.”
— Susan Curtis, Natural Health Director
