  • Handmade
  • Materials: Boswellia Sacra Oman, Sultans Grade Royal Green Hojari

Rarely available to the public, the Sultan's Grade, or The Sultanate's special Reserve, as it is sometimes called, is the cream of the Green Hojari Frankincense crop.

Iis collected immediately after harvest and kept out of circulation by the Sultanate of Oman. It is the purest, greenest, freshest and visually most beautiful resin of all the types of Frankincense harvested in Oman.

The Sultan's grade Royal Green Hojari is the only grade of Hojari resin on the market that tops the Royal Green Hojari in quality and colour and it rarely available to the public except once or twice a year when the Sultanate releases small amounts by special license after an extensive screening process. Even then, it is only dispensed in very small quantities. (20-50 Kilograms at a time). Many are those who apply for the privilege of purchasing this grade and few get the opportunity.

I am very fortunate to be able to offer a small quantity of this unique material to my customers.

Sultan's grade Royal Green Hojari, like the Royal Green Hojari, is used mainly for traditional medicine. It often is chewed, made into a healing tea and used as an ingredient in traditional medicinal formulas.
These tears are fresh, fragrant, green, large and well-shaped and are from the 2020 harvest.

Frankincense to Omanis, is comparable to pasta to the Italians, wine to the French and Mastic to the Greeks. It is not just a material, it is an integral part of their daily life, their heritage, history, culture and national identity. The Omani people have a relationship with Frankincense that spans thousands of years and it is inextricably woven into their DNA. Naturally, the best of the best Omani Frankincense is reserved for use in Oman.

There are two areas in Oman that are home to Frankincense trees. The Dhofar mountain region in the west and the Hajar mountains in the east. Both areas yield high-quality Frankincense resin and both Dhofari and Hojari Frankincense have their unique personality, appearance and aroma. Frankincense from Dhofar has a softer, sweeter scent that reminds me of honey, amber and spice while the Hojari Frankincense has notes of citrus, pine, mint and spice.

It takes many Kilograms of regular Hojari Frankincense resin to collect a handful of the prized "Royal Hojari. In turn, it takes many Kilograms of Royal Hojari Frankincense to gather a handful of the coveted Royal Green Hojari Frankincense tears. Sultan's Grade Royal Green Hojari is the cream of the crop and the "Creme de la Creme

With fresh and tender, plump green tears and a delicately sweet, Piney, minty, citrus fragrance, the high quality of this special guest is obvious to both the eye and the nose.

Frankincense Sacra is one of the 6 Frankincense types that contain Boswellic acids. These are therapeutically active compounds that have been in the news a lot the past decade. I cannot make medical claims here, so I suggest you Google Boswellic acids or check out my blog post below.

Boswellia Sacra, "Sultan's Grade" Royal Green Hojari is ideal for the preparation of high-quality incense, therapeutic oils, salves, cremes and tinctures. Traditionally, it is chewed, or infused overnight in water, ( a teaspoon of tears to a cup of room temperature water), and sipped throughout the following day for its therapeutic qualities.

Please note our ounces are 30 grams, not the 25 grams offered by many other sellers. To this generous ounce, we ALWAYS add a bit more and NEVER less to our packages. Something our customers have come to count on.

Botanically, Boswellia Sacra from the Arabian peninsula and Boswellia Carterii from East Africa are considered the same species. However, visually, aromatically and chemically they set themselves apart from each other. For this reason, I distinguish this resin from Oman as Boswellia Sacra.

Absolutely the best of the best frankincense--you won't find a better specimen here on planet Earth. The tears are gorgeous to look at, and the scent is incredible. It has that perfect mix of pine, citrus, and eucalyptus that characterizes the royal green hojari, but kicked up a few notches in intensity. A must-have for everyone's collection.
