LIMITED EDITION-Royal Green Hojari essential oil-Artisan distilled in small batches-May 2019.
This is a gorgeous essential oil distilled from the premier large green Frankincense tears of Royal Green Hojari from Oman.
Due to the expense and exclusivity of Royal Green Hojari resin, mainstream commercial distillers cannot offer this unique product. They need to distil vast amounts of plant material at a low cost to make a profit, you will not find Royal Green Hojari essential oil on the market.
The resin I used for this distillation was taken from a beautiful shipment of Royal Green Hojari Frankincense. After sifting the Royal Green Hojari through a 1/4″ mesh I was left with large green tears and smaller silver/green coloured tears which I distilled separately.
You will find the Silver Hojari essential oil in the shop here-https://www.etsy.com/listing/711511893/frankincense-sacra-silver-hojari .
This is pure essential oil. Nothing has been added and nothing has been removed.
Traditionally reserved for medicine, high-end incense and tea, these large succulent pieces share a green cast and a delightful sweet citrus scent.
It takes many Kilograms of Frankincense from the Hajar mountain area to collect a handful of the prized “Royal Hojari. In turn, it takes many Kilograms of Royal Hojari Frankincense to gather a handful of the coveted green Frankincense tears.

Note- 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 and the beautiful Frankincense of Somalia as Boswellia Carterii.
