FRANKINCENSE HOJARI ~ OMAN
There are many species of Frankincense. Frankincense sacra (Hojari) trees grow in Oman and Yemen. This species produces what is rated as the highest quality of Frankincense available. Frankincense trees are incredibly resilient and can survive in the most adverse and hostile conditions. They grow very slowly and only begin to produce resin once they have reached 8-10 years of age. The sap is harvested by making repeated incisions. Each successive cut yields purer and clearer resin. Over harvesting has been a problem and wild populations are endangered. But the recognition of the tremendous value of these trees has led to conservation efforts and more sustainable harvesting practices.
This resin’s scent is simply divine.
Frankincense is protective, cleansing and uplifting. It has been an integral part of spiritual practices since ancient times. Its uplifting scent elevates the spirit to higher realms. It is relaxing and able to banish the dark shadows that sometimes cloud or frighten the mind.
