Description

Powdered, fresh, fragrant Frankincense Carterii from Somalia.

I avoid buying powdered herbs or spices unless I have absolutely no choice. Mainly because I don’t know how long they have sat losing 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 for my 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 just powder up some more so it is always fresh.

The powdering process is not as simple as it could be.
I grind my resins at least twice in an electric grinder to attain a fine powder that will infuse easily in oils. Each time I grind Frankincense or Myrrh, I have to spread the powder out to dry, 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 in oils, waxes or alcohol. The powdered Frankincense I sell in the shop is twice powdered and sifted. It is fine enough for whatever the purpose might be. Also, it is easy enough to powder it finer if you desire by running it through a mortar and pestle, coffee or herb grinder.

A staple of churches and temples around the world, Frankincense Carterii resin is traditionally used as incense and medicine. Its essential oil is distilled for perfumery and aromatherapy.
It is one of 4 frankincense types that is rich in Boswellic acids which have been shown in studies to be highly anti-inflammatory and combat cancer.

Since Boswellia Carterii contains the Boswellic acids in its resin, (Not the essential oil!). This makes it 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.

Some customers fill capsules with Frankincense powder and take them on a daily basis. The fine grind of this powder makes this batch especially suited to this purpose.
