Boswellia Carteri

Frankincense has been known for its healing powers & the belief to improve communication with the Creator for thousands of years, long before it was given to baby Jesus. There are over 52 references to it in the Bible. Egyptian records show that it was used in cosmetics, perfumes & as an embalming agent. The Chinese used it as part of a treatment for leprosy. Grown predominantly on the Somali Coast & parts of the Arabian Peninsula, the resin is obtained by making a deep cut in the trunk of the tree lengthwise. Below this incision a narrow strip of bark is peeled off allowing the sap to run out, and as it touches air it begins to harden. It takes approximately three months to harden into the yellow "tears". Sustainably harvested, the resin is burned as an incense using charcoal tablets.
