In northern Kenya Arbor Oils of Africa and Arid Land Resources Ltd.
have organically certified the frankincense from Boswelia species and myrrh from Commiphora species.
There are over
100 households registered collectors who are mainly women and collection
is organized and sustainable.
This has played a significant role in poverty
reduction in this group. Plans are afoot to organically certify frankincense
and myrrh from other areas.
