This is the original and genuine Moroccan Black Fasoukh, as I remember it from my childhood! (Which was a V E R Y Looooong time ago!).
Fasoukh, in some cultures called Oshek or Veshek, is an ancient incense material that has been used in spiritual, magical and energetic work for hundreds if not thousands of years in North African, Southern Mediterranean, Arabic and Islamic cultures. Fasoukh is a mainstay of folk magic practices across a broad geographical area regardless of religion, culture and societal differences.

Two types of Fasoukh are most common in the area of Folk Magic. White Fasoukh and Black Fasoukh.
White Fasoukh is reliably the resin of Ferula Communis or Dorema Ammoniacum, while the composition of Black Fasoukh varies from tradition to tradition, culture to culture and geographical areas.
The most famous types of Black Fasoukh are from the Moroccan and the Sudanese cultures.
Black Fasoukh is sometimes found as an incense blend compounded from many ingredients but also commonly found as a single aromatic material and most often a resin. I have come across Black Fasoukh from Morocco, Turkey and even Sudanese Black Fasouk in the famous Addis Ababa Mercato open-air market in Ethiopia. Each differed vastly from the other.
In general, it is safe to say that White Fasoukh is usually used to open communication with the energetic/spiritual world and in many cultures used to petition the Djinn for favours.
While BlackFasoukh is most often used to cleanse and protect the person and the home, counteract the evil eye and malignant forces whether of human or otherworldly nature. Black Fasoukh is also used for other beneficial purposes such as attracting money, love, good health and prosperity. Though usually burned as an incense, in some cultures a liquid or paste is prepared from Black Fasoukh and used in a floor wash, applied to the soles of one's shoes or to the door frame of one's home to attract the desired outcome or for protection.
This Black Fasoukh can be dissolved in water and used in a similar way.
Moroccan Black Fasoukh is a compound material made with Ferula Communis resin as a base and other materials which are unknown to me. Black Fasoukh is not supposed to smell pleasant when burned. It is used more as a tool in spiritual and energetic work.
This batch is super fresh and very sticky!! For this reason we have double bagged it. To remove it from the inner bag, place in the fridge or freezer for an hour. then the inner wrapper will peel off easily from the resin.
