Product Description

Scientific name: Pistacia aethiopica
Family: Anacardiaceae
Local harvest: Somaliland

A truly unique and particular resin.
Pungent, balsamic, with acrid and mysterious tones, similar to Chios mastic, perhaps spicier.
There is little information on this resin, it seems that it was used in alcohol maceration for some medicinal use, but this comes from some rather recent use.
