Botanical Name: Boswellia frereana
Boswellia frereana resin from Somaliland wild harvested by fair trade practice and certified organic by the distiller. Frankincense frereana resin tears exude a citrus, resinous sweet spicy aroma. The aromatic complexity of this resin is best appreciated when allowed to slowly smoke in a resin burner.
Frereana resin is known in Somalia as Maydi, the King of Frankincense, where it is used extensively with prayer, sacred rituals, and enhancing meditation.
Charcoal should be allowed to transform into grey ash on the outside before placing resin on top. If placed on the charcoal too soon (while glowing) the resin will burn much too quickly and not release its full aromatics.
Please note we package resins by weight, not container size. Resin pieces vary in size from pea to thumbnail. We do not sort according to size and therefore package a mixture of sizes. Due to the irregular natural sizes and shapes of resin the specific weight purchased may not completely fill our container used in packaging. The upside to our packaging is that your resin will arrive in a sealed reusable container that provides proper storage.
