    Best Incense Ever!

    It is the "BEST" incense I have ever used. The most expensive frankincense irritates my sense of smell after using it awhile. But this gum elemi lingers like a shroud of mystery and very easy on my smelling sense, even after using it for quite a while. It has lemony, woody and something else I can't put my fingers to it that make it easy on your nose...I loved It!

    Just wanted to say thank you for the resins that ordered. They arrived in 2 business days, really fast. As soon as i started to unpack the box I could smell the aroma of resins. So far I tried Elemi (Philippines) and Benzoin (Sumatra) which is Beautiful. The Elemi has an amazing energizing sweet-wood aroma. Also would like to mention the quality of the resins is good too, which very important. Wholeness!
