Olibano Frankincense Boswellia Resin.
Absolutely the oldest kind of incense and in exactly the same form as used by the three wise men two thousand years ago.
In fact, the use of tree resin as an aromatic substance can be traced back much further – over six thousand years.
Can literally recreate ancient aromatic history in their own homes.
Some of the smells of the frankincense smoke are products of pyrolysis.
Frankincense oil can also be used for relief from stings such as scorpion stings.
The product comes from Somalia, with some frankincense also gathered in adjacent Southern Arabia and Ethiopia,
Sudan, and other central African countries.
The smoky fragrance produced by burning resin on charcoal disks is quite unique and amazingly evocative.
Burning Incense Resin: Light the charcoal and place it in your incense holder.
Hold the charcoal with tongs. The charcoal will then self-ignite across the surface.
When the charcoal starts to go grey around the edges this is the time to add resin.
Often people add sand to incense holder to help absorb heat.
