Description

The Hajar region of Oman supplies us with all our Hojari Frankincense types. The extensive sorting process gives us our Hojari Supreme, Royal Green Hojari, Hojari silver and a number of other variations that are valued for their distinct colour and scent.

A brother to the Royal Green Hojari, but not as well know, the Royal Red, (also called Amber Hojari), consists of large tears that all share shades of Amber to brown.

In scent, it is similar to the Royal Green Hojari but a little more balsamic and soft. It has less notes of citrus and lemon yet delivers the same sweetness as the Royal green to incense blends, oil extracts, tinctures and other products.

A staple of churches, Mosques and temples around the world, Frankincense Sacra resin is traditionally used as incense and medicine.

Frankincense Sacra from Arabia and Oman is one of the frankincense types that contain Boswellic acids which have been shown in laboratory studies to be anti-inflammatory and cause apoptosis in a variety of cancer types.

Boswellia Sacra is ideal for the preparation of incense blends, therapeutic oils, salves, cremes and tinctures. In many Arabian cultures, it is infused overnight in water, ( a teaspoon to a cup of room temperature water), and sipped throughout the following day for its therapeutic qualities. You can find the tincture and the oleo-extract of this resin in the shop.

It is easy to work with and its beautiful fragrance follows it through every product you make.

Please note our ounces are 30 grams, not the 25 grams offered by many other sellers. To this generous ounce, we ALWAYS add a bit more and NEVER less to our packages. Something our customers have come to count on.

Botanically, Boswellia Sacra from Arabia and Boswellia Carterii from East Africa are considered the same species. However, visually, aromatically and chemically they set themselves apart from each other. For this reason, I distinguish this resin from Oman as Boswellia Sacra.

    This is my 3rd purchase of resin, the first from this seller. I have not burned any yet, but everything is already so fragrant compared to the others. I wish my first two purchases were from Dan. I now understand people's love for opal. It's such a great, fresh scent. I don't even know what I received in the past.

    I was curious how the resins weighed out. Everything I ordered was heavy. Dan has a "generous pour." This was a big purchase for me. I am delighted I went with Apothecary Garden. I can't wait to try them all.

    I'm glad to add this lovely resin to my collection. Because of the price, I feel better about using this regularly than I do my Royal Green. Thank you!

    Was not happy with this order, order was timely, red hojari frankincense was not good, not up to price or hype.

    Although shipping took about two weeks I am satisfied with my purchase. I have been enjoying Royal Green Hojari resin for years this Red Hojari is just as enjoyable. It's not as citrusy as the green but it's very similar. Good size pieces, not too much bark. It's also still fresh and soft.

    Great product. My husband suffered a fall off a roof and received a traumatic brain injury 13 months ago. We have taken him off all doctor prescribed medicines and he currently takes 1/2 teaspoon of frankincense powder 2-3 times a day. Since taking this he doesn’t have headaches and the swelling to his head has gone. If he misses out taking it for any period of time the headaches return.

    I had to order a few extra ounces of this frank to keep on hand. It's one of my favorite Hojari varieties! Whereas the Royal Green can be extraordinarily pronounced in it's minty green top notes, this one is a bit more subtle and sweet when it first hits the coal or electric heater. It's a bit more subdued in it's initial greeting, but the scent is so beautifully refined and nuanced.

    I purchased quite a few items and haven’t had the opportunity to try them all out but so far the mastic and green hojari frankincense are amazing. I’ve no doubt I will enjoy the other resins equally. I’m glad I stumbled upon this shop. Will definitely be buying from again soon. Thank you!

    I love burning resins. This particular one is heavenly. It has a fresher, greener smell than some other frankincense. The resin doesn’t burn long, but the scent lingers strongly for hours. Love this. The seller shipped quickly and the transaction was trouble free. A plus.

    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.

    Nearly Identical in Scent Profile and even color to lower-grade Green Hojari Frankincense. The color is more translucent yellow or clear with virtually no red or pink

    Would double those 5 stars if i could. Stellar quality frankincense, September sale was stock up time. What a great Idea Dan. I am ahead of the game in the frankincence department. The red hojari is a nice variation from the green. Will make a few red and green holiday packs as small gifts this coming holiday season. Do I hear the Sleighbells already ??

    This is my first time buying the red hojari. As with everything else in the shop, the quality is apparent. The scent is strong, attesting to its freshness. I would say the scent is more lemony than other varieties of frankincense sacra. It might be one of my faves so far.

    Awesome grade of hojari frankincense! It has a powerful sweet scent with an almost fruity element to it. Not citrusy per se, but more like sweet berries. Great price for some beautiful tears of high grade omani frank.
