Fresh Frankincense Papyrifera from Ethiopia. Boswellia Papyrifera. A source of Boswellic acids, Incensole. Incensole acetate. For medicine, perfume, and Incense.

Until recently, in our North American market, there was little choice as far as the type of Frankincense resin or essential oil one could buy, and it was almost impossible to acquire the rare types of frankincense such as Frankincense Papyrifera.

Frankincense has been a valuable commodity and a very important part of our global cultures, religions and trade for thousands of years, highly valued for its medicinal, spiritual and aromatic uses, it is only recently that the different types of Frankincense have been examined closely and their unique chemical compositions studied.

Ruled astrologically by the Sun, all types of Frankincense are anti-inflammatory, calming to the mind and spirit and aid in meditation and spiritual work.

Boswellia, or Frankincense Papyrifera is distinguished from other types of Frankincense by the presence of Boswellic acids, Incensole and Incensole Acetate. Studies have shown that Incensole Acetate affects our central nervous system and possesses psychoactive properties. According to studies, Incensole Acetate can generate heightened feelings of well-being and spirituality, reduce feelings of anxiety and depression and improve memory function. Other research has indicated that Incensole Acetate shows neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory properties and may be of use in cases of stroke and head trauma. It is presumed that Incensole and Incensole Acetate are also absorbed by the body through the smoke released during the burning of Frankincense as an incense. One can see why this has been an ideal incense for spiritual/religious purposes in churches and temples for millennia.

The Boswellic acids that Frankincense Papyrifera contains have been researched extensively and show powerful anti-cancer activity in the lab.

I bought several different resins and am so pleased with the entire order!! Delivery was super quick, seller included some very generous extras (which were on my future to-try list so I am very excited about them!), and everything is packaged so well. Highly recommend this shop - I found it via numerous recommendations online and I can see why. Dan knows his stuff and it’s great to know exactly where the resins come from and that they were procured ethically and sustainably. I will happily be a repeat customer.

Everything I have ever bought from Dan has been superior quality. This comes through into the applications, the aromas are pure healing Mother Earth. So lucky I found this shop and Dan to support me on my journey to connection and stewardship.

I loved the first ounce of this so much I bought a pound. I could breathe it in all day every day. I love it while heating and whiffed straight from the bag! Lasts a long time on the electric incense heater -- you can grind it up or break it up as it heats. Thank you to Dan for introducing me to this delightful resin.
