Discover Chapter 15: Frankincense


Frankincense is one of the most mythic ingredients in the world. Growing at high altitudes, on very rough terrain, this exquisite ingredient can be found in the mountains in Somaliland, with some of the best qualities nearing the summit.


Our local partner, Neo Botanika, is supporting the brave local ‘tappers’ who climb these peaks in the desert to collect the raw resin directly from wild trees. Applying a unique 'savoir-faire' passed down from generation to generation, the tappers sustainably source some of the highest qualities of this magnificent fragrance ingredient.
