Frankincense Sacra Oman

Fresh Frankincense Sacra from Oman. A very fragrant and fresh shipment. It is beautiful burned as incense and makes a gorgeous-smelling oil extract for lotions, salves and medicated oils.

There is an ongoing debate among botanists whether Frankincense Carterii from Somalia and Frankincense Sacra which grows in Oman are the same species or different. This debate could, and likely will, go on for decades.

A staple of churches and temples around the world, Frankincense Sacra resin is traditionally used as incense and medicine. Its essential oil is distilled for perfumery and aromatherapy.
It is one of 6 frankincense types that is rich in Boswellic acids.

Since Boswellia Sacra contains the Boswellic acids in its resin, (Not the essential oil!), it is ideal for the preparation of therapeutic oils, salves, cremes and tinctures. It is easy to work with and its beautiful fragrance follows it through every product you make.
It is traditionally used to make Frankincense tea and the tears are often chewed as a healthy alternative to sweetened artificial gum.

Please note, our "Ounces" are not 25 grams as with most sellers, (a standard Ounce is actually 28.3 Grams), they are 30 Grams and my helpers are instructed to ALWAYS add more and NEVER less to each bag of resin. If you weigh the item you purchased you will confirm this.


Materials: Frankincense Sacra, Boswellia Sacra.

Best Quality Frankincense Sacra I've Found!

The best Frankincense Sacra! When I first starting using resins I tested out resins from many different companies and I found Dan's to be the clear winner. Several years later and I'm still only buying them from Apothecary's Garden. Thanks for a wonderful product!
