Personal notes: After spending a long while talking to and learning about my distiller for this hydrosol, I can honestly say this essential oil ages with grace.

Other important notes: The resin is imported from Somalia for fair trade by the owner of a US company and distilled here in the US stainless steel still by a Certified Organic facility. The owner is originally from Somalia and works side by side with his family and friends from the village where he grew up to ensure that they are being paid fairly. He does this to help create economical growth and educational standards for villagers which otherwise would not be paid fairly or educated. These facts make this particular Frankincense carterii that much more valuable.
