Frankincense: The Sequel

Frankincense: The Sequel

Last week I shared some information from my friend and guest blogger Sue Nixon about Frankincense.  Today we have Sue back, and she’s going to tell us even more about this amazing resin:

There are 540 species of Boswellia trees and 100 produce resin. Frankincense is bled from the Boswellia trees, similar to how Maple Syrup is taken from the Canadian Maple tree. The bark is cut and the blood of the tree patches the cut by forming a resin tear drop which will harden. After several cuttings the resin will be scraped and harvested. Frankincense resin looks like rocks and depending on the tree genus each will be different in colour and stickiness/hardness. Not all types of Frankincense resin are therapeutic, or meant to be ingested or chewed as gum. Frankincense is graded and sold accordingly. The darker the resin, the more impurities therefore the lower the grade and value. Boswellia Frere Ana is considered the King of all resins, with it’s warm sweet aroma and mainly used for perfume. It is unattainable outside of Saudi Arabia.

Boswellia stabilizes and frees the mind. In Oman, the Boswellia trees have been handed down through many many generations to the sons, and harvesting the resin is still their livelihood today. The harsher the conditions the better the Essential Oil that comes from the resin when distiled.
