It is a finely ground powder and dissolves readily in warm carrier oils in the water bath.
Since the water-soluble gum has been removed during distillation, it lends itself well to incense blends, burns cleanly with no charred odour, and can be used as a premium ingredient in loose or formed incense.
This lovely-smelling resin has the familiar Frankincense heart with notes of honey and spices and is wrapped in a sensual musk reminiscent of warm animal fur. Though we often assume all the scent in our aromatic plants is found exclusively in their essential oils, resins have taught me that they, too, have their distinct aroma, which often acts as a fixative, anchoring other fragrances.
I have also learned that most tree resins have an affinity for our skin. This could be attributed to the resin's function of healing the tree's skin, but regardless of the reason, resins mixed with a carrier oil leave the skin feeling soft, supple, smooth and just happy.
Since it is still so fragrant, little is needed to make salves or cremes for skin care. A ratio of 1 part resin to 5 parts carrier oil creates a lovely fragrant and skin-loving oil, which can also be used as the oil phase of oil/water cremes.
Included in a Moustache or beard wax, it performs the same as fresh oleoresin, giving great hold and shaping power while "perming" facial hair to the desired shape and lending a distinguished Frankincense fragrance.
In rejuvenative cremes delivers the traditional anti-ageing and skin toning properties associated with Frankincense. Much more so than the essential oil alone.

The quality of the resin extracts 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.
This is a collection of aromatic materials mentioned in the Old & New Testaments and in ancient Egyptian texts. I often get asked to translate biblical plant names and source the materials they mention. They are all here in this collection.
