Fresh Frankincense Papyrifera from Ethiopia. Boswellia Papyrifera. A source of Boswellic acids, Incensole. Incensole acetate. For medicine, perfume, and Incense.

Until recently, in our North American market, there was little choice as far as the type of Frankincense resin or essential oil one could buy, and it was almost impossible to acquire the rare types of frankincense such as Frankincense Papyrifera.

Frankincense has been a valuable commodity and a very important part of our global cultures, religions and trade for thousands of years, highly valued for its medicinal, spiritual and aromatic uses, it is only recently that the different types of Frankincense have been examined closely and their unique chemical compositions studied.

Ruled astrologically by the Sun, all types of Frankincense are anti-inflammatory, calming to the mind and spirit and aid in meditation and spiritual work.

Boswellia, or Frankincense Papyrifera is distinguished from other types of Frankincense by the presence of Boswellic acids, Incensole and Incensole Acetate. Studies have shown that Incensole Acetate affects our central nervous system and possesses psychoactive properties. According to studies, Incensole Acetate can generate heightened feelings of well-being and spirituality, reduce feelings of anxiety and depression and improve memory function. Other research has indicated that Incensole Acetate shows neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory properties and may be of use in cases of stroke and head trauma. It is presumed that Incensole and Incensole Acetate are also absorbed by the body through the smoke released during the burning of Frankincense as an incense. One can see why this has been an ideal incense for spiritual/religious purposes in churches and temples for millennia.

The Boswellic acids that Frankincense Papyrifera contains have been researched extensively and show powerful anti-cancer activity in the lab.

—————————Here are some words from customers about this product.——————————

“Exquisite materials of top quality. Seller is an expert and personally sources the best. He is also spearheading fair trade practices for frankincense so purchasing from this shop helps create stability for people living in dire conditions. Dan is a modern alchemist with a kind and generous heart.”

“This is the best frankincense I’ve found so far and can’t wait to try the others. Love it!”

“The frankincense is very fresh with a high oil content.”

“This supply was very fresh. It is great for extracting and application to the skin and is also nice to burn. I use B. papyrifera, B. frereana, B. carteri and C. myrrha extracted in Emu oil for application to areas of the body that have arthritis pain and for sore muscles.”

    Amazing amazing amazing!! Lovely smell! I made an oil extract out of this and It works like magic. Calming, warming and definitly a powerfull treasure of Nature to take away Any form of anxiety or stress. I felt like making an oil out of it almost made a better result than turning it to powder. The powdered version worked best for me as a treatment for stomach problems like heartburn and such while the oil worked better as a Quick remedy for stress ( with a very lovely smell! ) Im so happy I found this shop! Many thanks 🙂

    I think this might be my new favorite Frankincense! It's aroma is very similar to that of Boswellia carterii/sacra, but superior in my opinion.

    Boswellia Papyrifera has instantly become my go-to incense in my daily meditation and prayer practice…this one is just too good. I prefer it any day over the Green Hojari (B.Sacra) which is, IMHO, an excellent incense but has not the same psychoactive properties as the B.Papyrifera. Don´t miss out on this one – it belongs in everyone´s incense cabinet.

    Simply the best quality, at least for me. Rich, sweet, well-rounded classic frankincense scent, with great psychoactive qualities…relaxing and, for want of a better word, "attuning"… it creates the right mindset for meditation or spiritual work. I use it almost daily. Don´t miss out on this one!

    I loved the first ounce of this so much I bought a pound. I could breathe it in all day every day. I love it while heating and whiffed straight from the bag! Lasts a long time on the electric incense heater — you can grind it up or break it up as it heats. Thank you to Dan for introducing me to this delightful resin.

    I learned to make an oil extract from Dan Riegler's blog and use it for arthritis. Even though any Boswellia with boswellic acids should be beneficial, I had read that B. papyrifera was better than other species. I have found that like to make the oil extract from this species and plan to make a new batch soon. I like this product and the seller's blog.

    Everything I ordered from Dan has been incredible compared to other sellers. When there was a mixup on shipping, not only did Dan personally fix it, he put a few generous extras in my shipment to make up for it. Will only order from Dan from now on.

    Very good quality church frankincense. The scent takes me back to my days as a young child attending Sunday mass at our Roman Catholic church. It's amazing how some scents can just transport you across time and space.
