(2 reviews) Write a Review


We are very excited to offer you our newest addition, Black Hojary (Hojari) (Boswellia sacra)! Large, sticky pieces provide an exceptional fragrance experience! 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. The high oil content is visible and preferred by oil distillers who create the popular Hojary Frankincense Essential Oil! Known in some regions as Hojary Amber.

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 frankincense grow on the mountains near the desert where the sunshine is plentiful & rain is minimal. The Black Hojary frankincense 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 frankincense 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.

    Review Sticky Black Hojari

    I would actually give this a 4.5 rather than a 4 or a 5. It has a very pleasant aroma, but not quite as intense as the Dark Brown Hojari.
