Product Details


It’s a resin gum derived from a plant in the Unbelliferae family. It has a perennial plant up to 2 meters tall. Leaves similar to the leaves of a sycamore tree, but with more cuts, divided several times into dusty green and covered with fibers. Its stems are narrow and cylindrical. Its flowers are yellow. This plant has been identified in Iran in large areas of the high slopes of Alborz and other cities. As a result of an insect bite, sap is removed from the stem of this plant, or for more production, a slit is made in the stem or the stem is cut to remove more and faster sap from it.
