About Us

Boswellness is a manufacturer and international distributor of certified Organic Frankincense and Myrrh products.

Since 2005, Boswellness has been a dependable supplier of frankincense and myrrh products to industry-leading clients around the world.

With our strong ties to the harvesting regions in Northern Somalia (Somaliland), we’ve established a direct route for the raw materials from the tree to our distillery. This is why we can guarantee the purity and quality of our product. No third parties or middlemen involved, we go direct to the source. This also allows us to ensure the harvesters get a fair price for their resins, a driving force for the Somali who started Boswellness.

Our mission is simple: Establish sustainable economic opportunity in Somaliland and provide our customers with a top quality product.

Key measures to our success include livable wages and community involvement such as establishing a staple foods co-operative and improving access to clean water and education.

We specialize in distilling frankincense and myrrh resins. Our Boswellia Carteri, Boswellia Frereana, and Commiphora Myrrh essential oils are certified Organic and distilled with great care and commitment to quality.

We also offer frankincese carteri hydrosol, a fragrant distilled water naturally produced during the process of hydro-distillation.

Our Vision

Boswellness is committed to 3 main goals: Sustainability, community development, and product quality.

To ensure these precious resources remain available into the future, we understand that we must sustain the health of the harvest. Over the years, Boswellness has forged relationships with researchers from the University of Vermont, Virginia Tech, and the University of Burao. Boswellness has recently become involved with The Centre for Frankincense, Environmental, and Social Studies (cfess.org) who are actively establishing methods for sustainable harvesting and plant longevity.

Reinvesting in the harvesting communities and paying the harvesting families a fair price is at the core of our business. It helps ensure the health of the local communities, as well as the future of these important raw materials.

Boswellness is involved with our product on all levels. This is why we can guarantee the purity and quality of our product. No third parties or middlemen involved, we go direct to the source. From the mountains of Somaliland to our Vermont distillery, we know our frankincense and myrrh inside and out and will ensure you get a 100% pure, certified Organic product.
