FRANKINCENSE ROYAL HOJARI
Frankincense connoisseurs rate Royal Hojari as the finest Frankincense of all. Once the preserve of Sultans, it has now become available on the international market. Royal Hojari comes as naturally formed rounded tears, translucent in colour with a slight greenish hue. It burns incredibly clean, with none of the usual charred scent or harsh smoke. It lifts the spirit and literally transports it right through the gates of heaven…
This precious incense is suitable for very special occasions, as an offering to the Gods or to give wings to the soul.
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. We import our Hojari direct from ethically controlled harvests in Oman
