Back in December I received a package of resins from South Africa that I ordered from natural perfumer Sophia Du Toit. These are Commiphoras, a genus of flowering plants. It includes about 185 species of trees and shrubs, often armed or thorny, native to Africa, Arabia, and the Indian subcontinent. (taken from Wikipedia)

To learn more about these visit Sophia 's blog, African Aromatics.

Commiphora wildii (Omumbiri)

Commiphora crenata-serrata (Omumgorwa)

Commiphora virgata (Omumbara)

Commiphora krauselliana (Omumbungu)
