Distilled from the olibanum gum resin which we have imported from Somalia. A fine example of this pure natural product which we are proud to be able to offer as English Distilled and add to our expanding range of high quality oils. Distilled in our dedicated water still where the gum is added to agitated boiling water and distilled for 4 to 6 hours depending on the yield of gum. The oil vapours are condensed above the still and the oil is collected in the glass separator, the condensed water returns to the still for further distillation and is essentially a cohabation distillation.
A very nice oil.
