ABOUT US

SAAFI Frankincense is a family owned business and has been trading for over decades. We have tended to the same trees as our ancestors before us, using vital traditional hand-harvesting techniques passed down from generation to generation.

Our stringent quality checks mean that we are present at every stage of the frankincense journey. From cultivation to distillation, our desired level of quality is always met.

  • What Is Frankincense?

  • Frankincense - also known as Olibanum - is known for its soothing and relaxing qualities. Used throughout the ages to enhance spirituality, mental perception, meditation, prayer and consciousness. Frankincense is also great for the respiratory system as it assists with breathing. FUN FACT: Many of the prominent Ancient Egyptians pharaohs were buried and mummified using Frankincense and Myrrh.
  • Tapping Process

  • The process starts with the tapping of the tree. When the time is right, seasoned frankincense harvesters carefully tap into the side of the tree. Slowly, the white sap starts to flow out of the small holes. The sap is left to dry for around 14 to 21 days depending on the size and weather conditions. The sap is then collected and brought to a sorting station for quality checks and harvest amount.
  • Boswellia Carterii

  • Boswellia Carterii derives from the frankincense family genus, Boswellia (Burseraceae). Frankincense resin has been considered throughout the ages to have a wealth of health supporting properties. The resins of Boswellia Carterii have been used for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory diseases in traditional medicine of many countries.
  • Boswellia Carterii Is Native To East Africa

  • Frankincense has been used as a natural disinfectant as well as an anti-ageing remedy amongst the Somali population from generation to generation. Communities within certain regions of Somalia and Somaliland have been ethically harvesting the same Boswellia trees that their forefathers have, passing down traditional methods and other vital hand-harvesting techniques.
  • Boswellic Acid

  • One of the most beneficial compound found in Frankincense is Boswellic Acid, a component known to have anti-neoplastic properties which aid in the treatment of various different cancers. According to BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, "...Frankincense oil appears to distinguish cancerous from normal bladder cells and suppress cancer cell viability... Frankincense oil might represent an alternative intravesical agent for bladder cancer treatment." Diffusing a couple of drops is a great alternative to burning the raw resins.
