This is a co-distillation of Omani Frankincense and Somali Myrrh. It's from our own distillery in Muscat, Oman, and is made using our well-known, slow hydro-distillation.
Frankincense and Myrrh are both gum-oleoresins, tree exudates from the same general area of the world, and they go hand in hand for skincare, relaxation, and meditative properties.
Practically speaking, this co-distillation is logical for another reason. While frankincense is happy and separates easily from the hydrosol during distillation, myrrh has no such habits.
Myrrh weighs about the same as water, so separation of myrrh from his hydrosol is difficult and tedious. But he happily binds to his friend, frankincense, and is then lifted away from the water particles, to float on top, as frankincense does naturally. Since frankincense has a higher yield than myrrh, there is more frankincense oil, and his separation preferences dominate. Myrrh rides along, full and intact and happy, making this essential oil an exquisite and delicious blend of humming energy, buzz, and ancient sensory delight.
This oil is great added to any skincare or bathing product, diffused in a room, or used on pulse points or chakras.
