Product Highlight: Frankincense Oil (B. neglecta)



We are excited to showcase floviva Frankincense Oil, Boswellia neglecta.

Frankincense Oil is obtained from Boswellia neglecta, a deciduous tree that can grow up to 5 metres tall, with the oil being produced from the tree’s dried gum resin. Growing wild on the slopes of the foothills of Matthew’s range in Kenya, these trees are known for their pinnate leaves and delicate small white flowers.

The resin from Boswellia neglecta is produced naturally in the dry season by the activity of the larvae of a wood-borer beetle. This viscous resin dries on the tree and is collected during the harvesting months of August and November by the Samburu women, an indigenous women’s trust.
