Frankincense, derived from the resin of the Boswellia tree, is a fragrant gum resin traditionally used in incense and perfumes. Native to the Arabian Peninsula and northeastern Africa, Boswellia trees thrive in arid climates. The resin is harvested by making incisions in the tree’s bark, allowing the sap to exude and harden into tear-shaped droplets, known as “tears.” Frankincense has a woody, spicy aroma and is often used in religious and spiritual ceremonies for its purported ability to elevate the spirit and calm the mind. It also has a history in traditional medicine and is believed to possess anti-inflammatory properties. The resin can be burned directly or processed into essential oils.
This 100% genuine Boswellia Tree Resin is processed by hand to remove any dust or crumbs. Leaving only nice clean high quality chunks.
