Description

Omumbiri, Commiphora Wildii essential oil has a lovely sweet fragrance, reminding one of Frankincense rather than Myrrh though it belongs to the Myrrh family.

Traditionally, the women of the Himba tribe in Northern Namibia collect and use the fragrant resin of Omumbiri to perfume themselves.
The resin is blended with Ochre and fats and applied to the skin and hair.

Commiphora wildii is processed at a community co-op facility that pays the women on the spot for their resins. Profits from the sale of the essential oil go back into the community.

Omumbiri resin is collected from the trees and ground without tapping or damaging the trees in any way making it perfectly sustainable.

While Myrhh is often a bitter, thick and dark essential oil with a scent that conveys its potent bitterness, Omumbiri is translucent and mobile with a delightful airy, soothing, sweet citrus scent and a light, dry note of mint.
After dry-down, the top notes recede to reveal a soft, musk-like scent reminiscent of warm animal fur.

Like many other essential oils distilled from resins, the aroma of Omumbiri essential oil will continue to mature, deepen and evolve with time.

This essential oil is available in wholesale quantities. For details please contact me here through the shop.

    Smells like an earthy lemon. I diffuse it in blends where I can substitute lemon. Amazing and rare essential oil. I ordered more! 🍋

    not a typical smelling myrrh. I pick up a strange kind of citrus that is sweet and smooth. A bit of honey and musk facets. Slightly camphorous/incense smelling in the background. Initial whiff reminded me of cordial syrup but on closer inspection turns different.

    As I said previously, the oil was smaller than I expected. Had difficulty getting it out of the bottle.

    Definitely an unusual Myrrh, much closer to a Frankincense scent, but with its own unique twist. Lovely material with an unexpected musky dry-down.

    A superb and very rare essential oil of a very rare resin! It's hard to believe this is in the myrrh family. It scent is nothing like that of typical myrrh. Instead of the bitter, earthy, and resinous notes of myrrh EO (which I love…don't get me wrong!), Omumbiri has a bright, almost lemon-lime soda type aroma that is uplifting and cheerful. It's a true pleasure to experience all the wonderful scent facets of the varied members of the Commiphora family. Gratitude to Dan for sourcing this amazing product.
