Frankincense essential oil from Oman - steam distilled - Boswellia sacra - from the Dhofar Valley of Oman and the sacred incense trees which have grown there for countless centuries.
In this region of Oman we find Boswellia sacra, sacred frankincense, growing in an environment that is most
conducive to producing an oleo-gum resin of the highest quality in the world.
This Salalah coastal plain facing the Arabian Sea, is considered one of the most beautiful in Arabia, particularly in its southwestern part, because of its monsoon climate and temperate vegetation and bird life; the region has constantly flowing streams, making it Oman's most fertile area.
This frankincense oleogum resin oil was steam distilled and wild harvested in the Dhofar Valley of Oman.

Oman Frankincense Market Status:
International supply of frankincense resins from Oman is now unavailable. Somali's have long harvested the frankincense trees in Oman but new immigration legislation passed in Oman has led to the deportation of most undocumented farm workers; the harvesters of frankincense trees.
The war in Somalia is playing a role as well.
It's also reported that many of the trees have been over-harvested and not properly rested. One must travel further into the desert for quality resins now. Economic growth and its expansion of towns, homes and businesses are also encroaching upon trees. The long-term survival of the international frankincense trade of Oman resins is unknown at this point in time.
We are doing our best to obtain resins from small, local vendors, but availability is scarce, prices absurd, and reliability an unknown.
If you seek steady supply of high quality frankincense with those wonderful light and airy citrusy top notes, then we recommend the frankincense resins from Aden, which is the trading capital of Oman's neighboring country, Yemen. We're certain you'll find them to be of very high quality.
