Description

Powdered, fresh, fragrant Frankincense Sacra from Oman.

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 grind 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 dissolve easily. Each time I grind Frankincense or Myrrh, I sift and spread the powder out to dry for a day or two or it will clump and need to be reground. The first grind is fairly course 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 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 at home.

Though… Be advised that if you grind Frankincense too fine it will more difficult to filter the residue out of your product and it can take a very long time for the finely powdered material to sediment in your oil. That being said, I find that the finest powder of Frankincense is excellent in capsules or when taken by the teaspoon.

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

Since Boswellia Sacra 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.

    If you sniff it right from the bag, you might think there isn't much going out there. But after applying hot ethanol extraction with covwe on in a glass jar bain mairie for 15 minutes, then letting the ethanol extract cool down and filtering the sediment with coffee filter paper, I obtained dark orange sticky liquid with most amazing church frankincense odour with tones of burned dried leaves and fruits in the back ground. Thank you Dan thank you entire ApothecarysGarden team
