Frankincense Hojary Black (Boswellia sacra) - Oman *NEW*

Scents of Earth
$8.30

BRAND NEW!

We are very excited to offer you our newest addition, Black Hojary (Boswellia sacra)! Dark and mysterious in color, the fragrance has a surprising, fruitier component with balsamic notes that isn't present in Hojarys 1st Choice, Royal, Brown Superior or Green. It is rather unknown as it is primarily used for distillation due to it's high oil content.

The fragrance, look & feel of all types of frankincense are determined by the type of tree, the region where it grows and most importantly, the climate and weather. For example, the Royal Green, Hojary Superior & Hojary 1st Choice grow on the mountains near the desert where the sunshine is plentiful & rain is minimal. The Black Hojary trees are nearer to the coast where there is more rain & moisture in general that help create the darker look.

Fair trade & responsibly harvested. Sustainability is of utmost importance, for trees & the locals who gather the frankincense.

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 the 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 Sultanate of Oman. The government has taken control of the entire process and is now releasing stock on a very limited basis. Because of this, we can only import small shipments.

Very limited supply.

a sweet symphony for the nose and mind

I burn this on my electric incense heater and it's so relaxing to smell. Real destress therapy for the mind and lungs makes you want to take deep breaths just to enjoy the scent even more. I've been using top quality Oman sacra essential oil for years but only recently started burning the resin and it's amazing how much deeper and sweeter the notes are .

I love this product

This is my second purchase. I received this strain of frankincense as a sampler to my 1st order of Boswells sacra Hobart -1st choice Oman and although both are really great quality I prefer the black hojary. Every frankincense product I’ve purchased from here is the best quality and I am quite pleased.
