Omumbiri (Commiphora wildii) - Namibia

Scents of Earth $10.95

Omumbiri (Commiphora wildii), also called "Namibian Myrrh", has been used for many years by Himba women as their traditional perfume. Despite being part of the myrrh family, it has a great lemony scent that reminds many of frankincense from Oman. This resin is only found in the southwestern part of Africa. The tree is usually found on rocky cliffs and resin is harvested during the hot dry months. When the resin is burned, it is said to have very relaxing properties and is great for meditation.*
