Frankincense Sacra Resin Extract

Frankincense Sacra Resin Extract is used for preparing medicated Frankincense oils, salves, cremes and liniments and is ideal for use as an incense ingredient since it burns with a clear aroma..

Devoid of water-soluble gum, it dissolves easily in warm carrier oils, waxes and alcohol making it ideal for creating a broad range of cosmetic and therapeutic products.

Gently separated from its gum during distillation, Frankincense Sacra resin extract is a pure oleoresin composed mainly of pentacyclic and tetracyclic triterpenes including the alpha and beta Boswellic acids.

These triterpenes along with other valuable compounds are not naturally found in the essential oils of Frankincense, or the water-soluble gum portion. Too heavy to come over in hydro or steam distillation they are exclusively found in the resin.

The Boswellic acids, including Acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid (AKBA), are considered the active compounds found in some types of Frankincense. In laboratory studies, Boswellic acids exhibit extensive therapeutic properties..

Frankincense has been used in Ayurveda, Unani, Greek, Western and Traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. In Ayurveda and other traditional medicine systems.

Frankincense Sacra resin extract also makes a clean-burning, fragrant incense material that can be used alone or mixed with other aromatics. Devoid of water-soluble gum, it melts completely and burns cleanly with no charring.

For a medicated oil it can be blended in a water bath at a ratio of 1:3 to 1:5 with a carrier oil of your choice.

I use Frankincense Sacra resin extract in oils and salves for joint pain, Arthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. It is also present in my popular skin-loving serums and skin cremes where it adds a beautiful texture. It feels lovely on the skin and delivers its sweet fragrance to blends and formulas. I add no essential oils to most of my products since the aroma of the Frankincense resin is so lovely on its own. The more I work in this field, the more it is obvious there is a strong affinity between tree resins and human skin.

This resin can be used in moustache waxes and beard balms to add firmness, tenacity, (fragrance), and the effects of a day-long perm. For more information see my recipe.-

PLEASE NOTE: Although we do our best to remove bark from the resin extract, there will always be a little bit in the powder. If you are preparing an infusion/extract of the powder in warm oil, the bark is easily filtered out after the resin dissolves in the oil.

Oh god, it's heavenly. And Dan has invaluable writings on how to process this, on his site/blog. I've made highly effective and beautiful-smelling salves and oils with this.

We use this for health reasons, guarding against bodily inflammation responses, bumping immunity against all the crazy virus (& bacteria) out there these days. And that Dan makes this with gum removed makes it mix with ease into whatever you desire. My guy eats it straight by the teaspoon & loves it, & will be using it for longterm aid-against-malaria (along with oral western medicine but those pills have less efficacy after short time of taking & are not 100% against malaria, thus the boost of consuming frankincense)..... VERY grateful I don't have to go through the process of getting Frankincense to this state, and that Dan does this all sustainably. Cannot beat this shop!
