Frankincense Neglecta resin is collected by the women of the Samburu tribe in Northern Kenya, and this essential oil is distilled in Nairobi by an artisan distiller in small batches.

In the Samburu tradition, the men hold most of the wealth in the form of cattle, sheep, goats and camels. The women do much of the work with little to no monetary return. Many women collect resins and bring them to market every week or two. This gives them their own income which they use to purchase medicine and food.

Cutting out the middlemen from the supply chain ensures the women a reliable and fair return for the resins they collect.

Though Frankincense and Myrrh trees are abundant in their area, the women do not tap or injure the trees to increase yield as is often the case in other areas and with other types of resin-bearing trees.

Harming nature is frowned upon and contrary to their belief system and their reverence for their Nature Goddess, N'gai. The Samburu only collect the resins that form due to incidental injuries from goats and Baboons who find the bark of Boswellia Neglecta delectable and elephants who casually trample trees like matchsticks as elephants tend to do. In fact, it is believed these trees and some other frankincense and Myrrh species cannot be tapped due to their thin bark and different physiology

Frankincense Neglecta essential oil possesses the traditional and unmistakeable "core" fragrance of the Frankincense family that we are all familiar with, but brings with it a surprising soft sweet note that reminds one of the delicate facets of Frasier Fir or Black Spruce essential oilsFrankincense Neglecta has traditionally been used for many of the same applications as other types of Frankincense, topically for wound healing and respiratory complaints, and as most other members of its family, it has been used for centuries in ceremony, ritual, and to consecrate sacred spaces. Both the resin and essential oil are valued fragrance ingredients.

Ruled by the Sun, as all its kin, the Frankincense neglecta essential oil  adds a special touch to masculine fragrances with its sweet woodiness, rounded out with a soft balsamic Vanilla like note.

Grounding and elevating. Calming yet inspiring, it possesses a refreshing "Frankness", clearing to the mind and body. It helps explicitly alleviate tightness in the chest, especially due to anxiety and stress.
Frankincense Neglecta essential oil is a beautiful addition to any essential oil collection, especially for those with an appreciation of the Frankincense family.
