Black Gum Olibanum


Black Gum Olibanum (Boswellia Neglecta) resin comes from the Ogaden region in Ethiopia and also in Kenya. It components are made up of alpha-Pinene, alpha-Thujene, Sabinene, Delta 3 Carene and Limonene.Black Gum Olibanum (Boswellia Neglecta) cannot be tapped to increase the yield of valuable resin, there is less concern of over abuse and unsustainable harvesting practices. It is used for burning as incense for its incredible aroma and is quite pliable and sticky when held in one’s hand. I have broken off a piece and it oozes in my hand. It is full of essential oil and gum. The one from Ethiopia is a much sweeter Boswellia than that of Aden, Oman, Somalia and India with a slight minty note. I have used the resin from the other countries and notice a difference. The others have more of a masculine woodsy smell
