Boswellia Carterii (the source of Frankincense) is in grave dangger! We have experience first hand the negligence of the International Community, in terms of trade, aid and development, on the Horn of Africa. Combing that with with the unscrupulous frankincense traders and western corporations over exploitation of the harvesters and landowners, this has led to jeopardizing the Boswallia Carterii trees very survival through over harvesting and drought. Robbie hearing from local elders who have managed the land for generations knew something had to be done to protect their land, traditions and future
How you may ask? How do we access untouched Boswellia Carterii trees and employ ancient techniques to ethically and sustainable harvest the resin?
