Description

Likely my favourite Frankincense type, Boswellia Rivae never stays in the shop for long.
It has a haunting, rich fragrance with a soft candy-like sweetness reminiscent of its distant cousin Palo Santo, (Bursera Graveolens). With a deep amber heart and a light, sweet spiciness, it is my go-to Frank in many of my blends and is a beautiful resin on the coal.

Like all others in its family, Frankincense Rivae is ruled Astrologically by the Sun. Thus it is considered warming and strengthening to the heart and mind, grounding, cleansing and spiritually uplifting.

Frankincense Rivae has been used traditionally as an incense to cleanse the home, sanctify ceremonies and sacred spaces. Both the essential oil and oleoresin of Frankincense Rivae are ingredients in traditional Bakhoor incense mixes across the region.

The scent of Frankincense Rivae, though unmistakably that of Frankincense, stands out with a smooth complexity. It is one of the most vibrant Frankincense types I have come across. It lends itself beautifully to natural incense work and can be used in various cremes, salves and oils.

Traditionally it is used to speed the healing of wounds and scar tissue, and as most other types of Frankincense, it is anti-inflammatory, reduces the appearance and the signs of ageing. It is often used in anti-ageing and anti-wrinkle cosmetic products.

Boswellia, or Frankincense Rivae, is an olfactory treat, a rare and unusual Frankincense that should not be missed.

    The resin is high quality and ships quickly considering where it's coming from. This was my second order and I was not disappointed. Thank you!

    I'm sure this is very good quality frankincense, hence the five-star, but the scent just wasn't for me. Not my cup of tea, I prefer many other from this shop. 🙂

    The shipping delivery was quick, I have burned any yet and it looks just like the picture they are offering in the advertisement.

    This is a wonderfully complex and enticing resin. I LOVE it! It works well in my electric heater and turns into a liquid.

    Dan hit a home run with this one.
    Looking for something with a large fragrance presences!
    ApothecarysGarden gives you several options to try it out for yourself. The quality and service is why this is our main site for buying incense. Our rule is to keep buying from a supplier as long as the quality is exceptional. Dan has the goods and the service to keep us coming back.

    The Frankincense shipped quickly and appears to be high quality. This is my first time purchasing actual resin. I am using this as a medicinal oil so I wanted to be sure of purity. The smell is wonderful and different from frankincense essential oils that I have purchased. I am happy so far. Thank you!

    Ich bin von dem Produkt enttäuscht. Da meine Enttäuschung durch die Nichterfüllung meiner Erwartung hervorgerufen wird, handelt es sich um eine sehr subjektive Bewertung. Über eine detailliertere Produktbeschreibung könnte es möglich sein, im Vorfeld des Kaufs zu einer besseren Erwartungshaltung zu kommen.

    First-time Buyer. Item Quality, Matched Description, Met Expectations 5+ Stars, Exceeded all expectations. Fast Shipping. Highly Recommend! I didn't know witch one to buy, asked Dan for his opinion, To my surprise, he included a sample of the Frankincense I didn't purchase. How great is that? Apothecarys Garden cares about their customer and provides the highest quality product. I will not be going anywhere else.

    The quality of the resins from Apothecary's Garden is superb, and each is exquisite in its own right. The items received always match the shop description, and more than meet my expectations. The service is also excellent, with fast shipping to Australia. An exceptional experience all round, and I'll be back for more.
