Description

This is the listing for the #1 export grade of Frankincense Carterii from Somalia. It is made up of lovely amber coloured tears and has a beautiful fresh aroma of amber and citrus.

Frankincense Carterii is one of a handful of Frankincense types that contain Boswellic acids. These resin acids are the compounds that have been shown in studies to be anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer. These findings support its use in traditional medicine for inflammation, respiratory, muscle and joint and gastrointestinal issues. Frankincense Carterii has also been shown to add elasticity to skin and has been used in cosmetics formulas. It is important to note that it is the resin part of Frankincense that contains the Boswellic acids, not the essential oils. Adding essential oil of Frankincense Carterii will not deliver its full therapeutic value. For this reason, it is much more advantageous to understand how to use the resin in products.

Frankincense Carterii resin can be used as a base for therapeutic and cosmetic cremes, salves, balms and medicated oils. For instructions on how to make your own Frankincense oil-extracts and other products please visit my blog at http://www.apothecarysgarden.com

It is lovely burned in a censer alone or ground and blended with other aromatics.

In local folk medicine traditions, Frankincense Carterii is used as a tea/infusion by steeping one teaspoon of tears in 2 cups of cold water overnight and sipping on this tea during the day. This is taken to help with coughs, colds and respiratory complaints.

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.

    I ordered a couple of different resins from ApothecarysGarden and was not disappointed. The prices were reasonable, my order came quickly, and the products are high quality.

    I have bought most of the resins sold by Dan. Each one of them was exquisite and top notch quality. On top of that the customer care is also excellent. Knowing that the products are sustainably sourced makes it a no brainer to buy from here.

    Phenomenal quality frankincense! It took a few weeks to get to me in the United States, but my resins arrived right on time. Always a great experience in quality at Apothecary’s Garden.

    Good sized chunks. I'm not yet very good at telling different kinds of Frankincense apart, but it smells like I want it to.

    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.

    quality is good for the price and the smell is good. I don't have much experience with different frankincense so I can't say how it smells different from the others but it smells good

    Refreshing and beautiful. Used on a ceramic heater at low temperatures, wafts of lemon, freshly squeezed orange juice, and at times, soft notes of apricot appear. A must try, and very good value at the current price. Will be ordering the oleo extract shortly to try.
