Collection: Frankincense

Dating back to the days when the world was young, frankincense has a rich and colorful history.

The five species of Boswellia trees that yield this fragrant resin proliferated the lands of the ancient world and they thrive to this day in the harshest environments that are fraught with stifling heat and the endless thrash of burning winds and blowing sands.

Resembling a knotty, aged desert bonsai, the peeling, papery bark glistens when the resin is released.

Today, these special trees can be found in north and Western Africa, India, Oman and Yemen, and their aromatic resin is sought after by many of the world’s finest perfume manufacturers.
