Why Somaliland?

Myrrh, or Commiphora myrrha, is native to Somaliland, where it has been harvested for generations.

How Does it Work?


Myrrh is native to regions in Africa and the Middle East and has been valued and prized since antiquity. Throughout history, Myrrh has been used for perfume, incense, and medicinal purposes.

Myrrh essential oil comes from steam distilling the resin of the small Myrrh tree. The tree has rugged, angled, thorny branches with few leaves. The resin comes from the tree’s sap, which hardens and dries into a glossy, amber-coloured resin that darkens over time. To release the sap from the tree, harvesters make a cut in the wood, which causes it to release the waxy sap or gum. These cuts are controlled to ensure that the trees remain healthy and can thrive for many years.

Fair and On-Time Payments

One of doTERRA's core sourcing principles is providing consistent, fair payments to producers – including prepayments. Here's how fair and on-time payments are helping our partners in Somaliland:

  • In addition to fair and on-time payments, harvesters get food and cash prepayments spread out during the year
  • doTERRA cut out the middlemen in order to work directly with those who harvest and sort Myrrh resin, providing harvesters with a stable and reliable income
