This type of frankincense called Hojari Superior/ Boswellia Sacra Fusoos, is considered to be the best kind of frankincense exported from the Sultanate of Oman.It is most likely the Frankincense of Biblical times.
According to the Omani people "Fusoos" is the best kind of frankincense available in the market, characterized by the smell even before burning it. It’s very attractive because of the color. This type of Frankincense is also called “Large Pill Frankincense” because of its size which is much bigger than the “Fusoos Grade II”. Both grades I and II are in the same quality and only separated at harvest by their size.
Fusoos Grade I is specially used for religious events and places of worship such as churches, synagogues and mosques, owing to the fact of its great quantity of smoke profusion, requiring greater amount of charcoal to properly burn.
After extracting the frankincense liquid from the tree, workers pick the best pieces and separate the tears considered wonderful in appearance for its distinctive color, which tends to be from off white, a beautiful tan to a slight shade of green. These tears are normally some of the largest you will find.
Hojari Superior can be used in drinking water to add aromatic fragrance to the water. It is also said to clean the air and kills bacteria that multiply in the throat and stomach. In Oman, this type of superior frankincense is burned in churches, temples and mosques to add aromatic fragrance and holy a feel. Also, wealthy people burn this frankincense in their homes to provide a feeling of luxury, especially when receiving guests.
Oman Frankincense Market Status:
International Supply from Oman is now available on a very limited basis.
In the past many of the trees in Oman have been over-harvested and not properly rested, forcing harvesters to travel further into the desert for quality resins . Economic growth and its expansion of towns, homes and businesses are also encroaching upon trees. The long-term survival of the international frankincense trade of Oman resins is now in the hands of the Sultantate of Oman. The government has taken control of the entire process and is now releasing stock on a very limited basis.
We have been doing our best to obtain resins and have just secured a small shipment.
If you seek steady supply of high quality frankincense with those wonderful light and airy citrusy top notes, at a lesser price then we recommend the frankincense resins from Aden, which is the trading capital of Oman's neighboring country, Yemen. We're certain you'll find them to be of very high quality.
The frankincense resins and oils we obtain from Somalia, are very fresh. You may want to investigate them as well. Enjoy!
