Description

At Edens Garden, we are very selective about the essential oils that we carry. We want each oil to add something special to the lives of our community.

Opoponax offers a rich and earthy aroma with intoxicating woody nuances that can help us let go of anxiety and find stillness and calm.

Native to East Africa, Opoponax is commonly used in perfumery, incense and herbal remedies. It shares many of the same properties with Myrrh because the plant source is closely related. A tall tropical tree that holds natural oleogum resin in tubular vessels between the bark and wood trunk, Opoponax’ gum dries to form dark reddish-brown lumps that produce a sweet and robust-like aroma. The resin is put through a steam distillation method to capture the essential oil.
