OPOPANAX

The Opopanax resin comes from East Africa, primarily it is collected in Somalia, Ethiopia and Sudan through scratch of the bark of some incense tree family. The Opopanax resin smells woody-balsamic, slightly sweeter than myrrh.

Opopanax resin is smoky and so has a calming effect. In the past Opopanax was smoky to deter evil spirits and protect the living spaces. The resinoid of Opopanax is also used in perfumery.
