This is yet an another exquisite organic frankincense resin. (Well they al are actually ) It is also a wild harvested resin and has a wonderful sweet aroma with a slight scent of mint.
Boswellia neglecta resin comes from Ethiopia from the Ogaden region to be exact and is also found in Kenya. B. neglecta have the components alpha-Pinene, alpha-thujene, sabinene, delta 3 Carene and Limonene. This resin is anti inflammatory as the others is also a wonderful resin to help with depression and anxiety. For me it is the second choice after the papyrifera. The fact that the resin ins Black adds to the mystical and spiritual quality. It is a wonderful choice to assist with grounding during mediation and also connecting to spirit. It is expansive and opening. Actually this resin seems to open the lungs.
Frankincense resin begins as a sticky liquid that flows from the trunk of the tree when it's injured. The purpose of the resin is to heal the tree. Frankincense resin flows when a tool called a mengaff is used to scrape about a five-inch section down the trunk of tree. It is after the tree is scraped, a milky white juice begins to flow. This sap or "juice" hardens into "tears" when exposed to the air. That specific tree is then marked and the harvester returns to scrape and collect the hardened frankincense resin from the tree. The large, globules are scraped off into baskets and the inferior quality that has run down the tree is collected separately. This resin is Wild Harvested - which means that it is collected only after an animal brushes up the tree the resins fall off.
Neglecta can be used as an insect repellent and is known to be wound healing and anti inflammatory.
Please note that Boswellic Acid is not present in the Essential Oil
About Stillpoint Resins: Did you know that even resins are prone to adulteration? Yes, they can be!!! The way resins are adulterated is by the addition of plastic! Here at Stillpoint we only source the purest resins available that are ethically harvested or wild harvested. When a resin s wild harvested that means the resin has not been manually removed from the tree, but has fallen off after a wild animal has brushed up agains the tree. Our resins organic and or wild harvested and are of the highest vibration.
How to Burn Resins: Light the charcoal with matches or lighter for about 20 seconds until it self-ignites. Use tongs to hold it up (never hold it with your fingers alone or you might get burned). Place the lit charcoal in a bowl or any incense burner. The bowl or incense burner should be filled with sand or dirt. Let the charcoal warm for a few minutes. (It turns gray around the edges when it is ready) Now you are ready! Add a small amount of resin on top of the charcoal. The resin will burn and soon release essential, aromatic oils through the smoke. Continue to place resins or powder on charcoal as they burn out and smoke decreases for a continuous burn.
