The Nagaad Resins and Gums Opoponax resin is composed of three grades which are identifiable as grade A, B, C, but in essence the three grades are a result of the different regions that the Commiphora guidotti trees grow.

The resin is naturally obtained and traditionally considered to be medicinally active. The main commercial application of Opoponax is in the perfumery and cosmetics sectors. Though people often find the taste acrid and bitter, the highly flammable resin can also be burned as incense to produce a scent somewhat like balsam or lavender. The resin has also been used in the treatment of spasms and, before that, as an emmenagogue in the treatment of asthma, chronic visceral infections, hysteria and hypochondria.

The Opoponax resin is 100% pure and organic and is free from any contamination. The plants all grow naturally and wildly and Nagaad Resins and Gums employs sustainable harvesting and safe transportation techniques. The end products are counter-checked for quality before being released into the market.
