Description

Bold, brisk and bursting with character, Boswellia frereana is named the king of Frankincense for good reason.

Frankincense Frereana trees grow on the steep rock faces of the Somali Puntland mountains. Defying gravity, they develop foothold trunk “anchors that embrace the sheer rock surfaces and present numerous challenges to the harvesters. Not only is access to each tree challenging, but the harvesters contend with the danger of injury from falls and snake bites each time they tap, and each time they collect the resin from the tree.

Frankincense frereana essential oil acts as a fixative and heart-note in perfume compositions anchoring more fleeting and volatile scents and contributes a unique twist to incense blends.

Distilled in-house May 21, 2020 from the 2 highest grades of Frankincense frereana, this essential oil has a Bold, sensuous, sweet, warm, woody Amber scent highlighted lemon, honey, spice and almost animalic musk notes. Usually, distillers process the lowest and bottom of the bag, powder and dust), grades of Boswellia frereana into essential oil. I believe using grade #1 and #2 chunks of resin has produced a finer product.

MAYDI-BOSWELLIA FREREANA-FRANKINCENSE FREREANA-SOMALIA

Perhaps the least known Frankincense type in the Western world, but one of the most prized in Arabia and Africa, Boswellia Frereana is Native to the Somali Puntland and the Somaliland highlands, it is their pride and joy. In Somalia and neighbouring countries, it is called Maydi and considered the King of Frankincenses. The fragrance of Boswellia frereana is a warm Amber highlighted by honey, spice and light musk notes.

Though Boswellia frereana has a very different chemical composition than other types of Frankincense and contains no Boswellic acids, it is used traditionally as medicine and has been shown in laboratory studies to be anti-inflammatory and able to kill the H. Pylori bacteria that causes gastric ulcers. It is traditionally used to help alleviate Arthritic pain and support healthy joints.

Boswellia Frereana resin is widely used as a high-end chewing gum for oral care, peptic ulcers, and is considered antiseptic and anti-inflammatory for both the gastrointestinal and the urinary tract. It is believed that the body benefits from these therapeutic actions through chewing the raw resin. Maydi has been used in anti-ageing and rejuvenative cosmetic preparations and is believed to reduce wrinkles and add elasticity to mature skin.

Collected by traditional harvester clans and families in the mountains of the Somali Puntland, from often precarious cliff growing trees. It is brought down to the coastal plain on the backs of donkeys to be sorted, packaged and sold. It is often bought up quickly by the Coptic church as their signature incense, and traders from across the Red Sea who sell most of their product to Saudia Arabia and other Arabian countries where it is in great demand as a high end chewing gum and incense material. Frankincense Frereana is so much in demand in these countries that the harvest is often pre-purchased a year in advance to guarantee supply.

    Fantastic oil! Helps me get even closer to the profile of this frankincense v.s just heating it. Impossible to drag the heater everywhere I go, but this and all the other EOs Dan distills help me never be without. As described: "a warm Amber highlighted by honey, spice and light musk notes" .
    Highly recommended!

    Gorgeous! The best Maydi distillation I have had the pleasure of coming across. You can tell the resin that went into making this oil was of a higher quality than the typical frereana essentials oils you see on the market. The scent is superb.

    Exceptionally fragrant and unique oil. Items arived in expected time as they always do from this shop. The oil is very uplifting and bright. I also have burned the same Frereana in the resin form, purchased from ApothecarysGarden and love the quality.

    This is the greatest frankincence in the world I believe. The medical effect on brain when inhaled causes ant inflamation among other healing properties. So well made 10/10

    Got this as a backup when first bottle was getting used up. Delightful to use. Opens up the day. Crisp and stimulating, invigorating. Always satisfied with the prompt and professional service. Unique items at fair prices and consistently available stock.
