About Us

​Maydi Frankincense Natural Oil LLC is the industry’s leading Boswellia carterii and Boswellia Frereana Frankincense resin and essential oil producer and worldwide distributor. Headquartered in Dubai, the company was founded by the Saleh family who have been involved in the production and trade of Frankincense oil and resin for over 200 years.


Our resins are wild harvested from the mountain regions of Somaliland, hand sorted into the finest grades and steam distilled into high quality Frankincense essential oils in our facility in Dubai. This guarantees the highest purity, quality and traceability. When you buy from Maydi, you are buying directly from source. There are no middlemen involved. This means that you are getting the most competitive pricing on the market. And the traceability and sustainability of our products is absolutely guaranteed.


Somaliland is the world's most abundant source of high quality Boswellia carterii and Boswellia frereana Frankincense resin and its unique fragrance profile is highly sought after by the cosmetic, personal care, aromatherapy and fine fragrance industries. Our oils have the classically smooth, deep and resinous profile of Somaliland Frankincense, with strong terpenic top notes and lovely pine heart notes. It is these distinct characteristics that make our Frankincense oils the most desirable on the market.
