Where does Mabrooka source Frankincense Essential Oil ?

Frankincense essential oil, unlike some other natural products, doesn't have a single, specific origin point like a particular farm or mine. Here's why:

  • Multiple Boswellia Species: There are various species within the Boswellia genus that can be used for frankincense essential oil. The most common sources include Boswellia sacra (Sacred Frankincense) and Boswellia carterii (Omani Frankincense). Depending on the desired properties and availability, manufacturers might source from different regions.
  • Global Cultivation (with a Focus on Sustainability): Historically, frankincense trees grew primarily in the dry regions of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. However, due to its increasing demand, cultivation efforts have expanded to other parts of the world with similar climates, including parts of India and even some areas in Asia. Here's where Mabrooka, for example, could emphasize their commitment to sourcing frankincense resin from sustainable forestry practices. This ensures the long-term health of wild Boswellia tree populations and avoids over-exploitation. They could mention specific certifications they look for in their suppliers, such as FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) or similar programs promoting responsible resin collection practices.
  • Quality Control Measures: Regardless of the source location, Mabrooka can showcase their commitment to quality control measures. This might involve partnering with reputable suppliers who prioritize sustainable sourcing and high-quality resin. They would likely perform rigorous testing on the extracted frankincense oil to ensure it meets strict quality standards for purity and therapeutic properties.
