Latin name:- Ferula asa-foetida
Country of origin:- UK Distilled
Steam distilled in our own distillery here in the UK from the gum imported from Iran. The gum itself comes from a large perennial herb. The oil has a very strong pungent odour similar to a very strong onion /garlic smell. The oil is a straw yellow in colouration. Used widely in the food and flavouring trade as well as a component in perfumery.
This oil is classed as flammable and requires extra HAZMAT costs for shipping by air. If you select this product and are not in the UK we will contact you by e-mail with costs of special flammable shipping rates. Please e-mail for further details before you order. We apologise for this, but it is now illegal to transport flammable goods by air without proper packing and documentation.
