I avoid buying powdered herbs or spices unless I have no choice. I don't know how long they have lost their potency, but also because I know unscrupulous suppliers will often use low-grade material or siftings from the bottom of bags, they otherwise could not sell. You can hide a lot in a powder... Often reputable retailers who buy powdered material from brokers have no idea how old the powder is and what went into it. You could say when it comes to big business, I have trust issues....

Grinding my own fresh herbs and resins guarantees high-quality material for my work and customers.
I use my freshest and best quality resins and only grind as much as I need. Powder never sits around long in the studio. When it is gone, I grind some more so it is always fresh. I have added a little extra to the price of the whole resin since we grind it, dry the powder and grind it again to produce a consistent and non-clumping powder.

The powdering process is not as simple as it could be.
Royal Green Hojari powder is ground and dried twice to attain a fine powder. Each time I grind Frankincense or Myrrh, I sift and spread the powder out to dry for a week or it will clump and need to be reground. The first grind is fairly coarse and, in my opinion, not fine enough to easily infuse oils, waxes or alcohol. The powdered Frankincense I sell in the shop is twice powdered, dried and sifted. Also, it is easy enough to powder it finer if you desire by running it through a mortar and pestle, coffee or herb grinder at home.

A staple of churches and temples worldwide, Frankincense Sacra Royal green Hojari resin is traditionally used as medicine and often prepared at night as a cold infusion sipped during the following day. The usual ratio is a teaspoon of whole tears to 2 cups of room temperature water. (You can also use a teaspoon of powder). Overnight an emulsion is formed which lends a white colour to the water. At night one can add more water to the tears and repeat the next day. when the infusion no longer turns white the residual granules can be consumed and a fresh teaspoon of tears is processed.

Since Boswellia Sacra contains the Boswellic acids in its resin, (Not the essential oil!). This makes it ideal for preparing therapeutic oils, salves, cremes and tinctures. It is easy to work with and its beautiful fragrance follows it through every product you make.

My favourite Powder

I buy this whenever I want what is probably the best Frankincense. However, I have also used Dalzielii and Seratta from this site for ingestion and haven't noticed any significant difference, except for taste, and there hasn't been any negative effects from any of them.
My main reason for varying the variety is for variation in the Boswellic acid and other contents which may offer a broader beneficial effect. This is just based on a personal presumption and people should investigate which variety is best suited for their requirements. Apothecary's Garden provides detailed explanations, and I consider it to be the best overall resource around. The only other general source I found when looking into Frankincense, which seemed authoritative, was https://www.therevisionist.org/reviews/frankincense-types-medicinal-psychoactive-cognitive-scent-properties/. Maybe Dan could view it and comment on it's content as he is now my go to advisor on Frankincense, Myrrh etc. Having said that, for what it's worth, I personally think it's worth a read
