Arabian Frankincense Distillery

MUSCAT, OMAN

Partner Since 2010

The limestone cliffs of Oman’s Dhofar Mountains provide the perfect environment for the frankincense tree to grow Omani Sacred Frankincense resin. The Boswellia sacra trees in this region carry a rich history, having been harvested for the past 5,000 years. Today, their resin is harvested by the same method and on the same schedule as their ancestors performed thousands of years ago, continuing this centuries-old story.

LOOKING AFTER THE ENVIRONMENT AND COMMUNITY

The original Salalah distillery is working with the government to restore Oman’s rightful place as the frankincense capital of the world. Together, they are developing reforestation tracts to strengthen the frankincense industry. Local farmers work several hours a day to care for the trees in these areas.
