This particular resin is from the Boswellia frereana tree and is found growing in Somalia-land, There are may different Frankincense species, but in our opinion, the frereana species is very powerful. Ii is known as Maydi, the King of All frankincenses. The aroma is delightful, soft, soothing and very smooth. In fact, the locals used to chew on this resin for its anti-inflammatory properties. This resin is a bit different from the other species of frankincense as it is not soluble in water, but it is in carrier oils :)
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.
