This aromatic resin from the Boswellia sacra tree in Oman is considered the finest of frankincense, and the scent is so beautiful it is no wonder it has been highly prized across cultures. Just as the resin heals a tree and protects its wounds, it seems to have the same effect on our minds and bodies.
Frankincense has been an integral part of spiritual and religious ceremonies for over 5000 years. Its spiritually cleansing and emotionally healing qualities are universally recognized, and used to enhance meditation and prayer. The green and white grades are sourced from the Al Hajar mountains in Dhofar. The Najdi grade is from North of the mountains and the black is from the coastal area where there is more rainfall.
This resin can be simply kept in a special container and smelled directly, it can be tinctured or infused in oil, or it can be ground and burned on charcoal. You can even infuse drinking water or bath water with a piece. (Please make sure to research internal usage applications carefully before doing so.)
Choose a grade:
Green Royal Hojari: is considered the most prized grade of frankincense. It creates a purifying atmosphere and is reserved for deeply therapeutic and spiritual meditations. The scent has hints of pine, citrus, and eucalyptus.
White Royal Hojari: is an ethereal frankincense revered for its ability create a clarifying and uplifting sacred space. The warm notes of the White Hojari tears have a smooth presence and a light sweetness.
Black Hojari: is sweeter and more deeply resinous with a balsamic and fruitier scent profile. This is the kind most used for essential oil production due to its high oil content.
Najdi: is a commonly used resin for incense and has a deeply sweet, honey like scent with complex earthy undertones.
