Hojari Frankincense is considered to be the best kind of frankincense exported from the Sultanate of Oman and is produced from the resins of a subspecies of the Frankincense (Boswellia sacra) tree that grows only in the Dhofar region of Oman, a country located on the southern coast of the Arabian Peninsula.

As different regions simply produce higher grade of wine than others (such as the Champagne region of France), Omani Hojari frankincense has been regarded since ancient times as being of the highest quality. It is distinguished from other varieties of frankincense by its pure, refreshing smell that is reminiscent of limes with very slight hints of evergreen. After cutting the frankincense resin from the tree, workers pick the best pieces and separate the tears considered wonderful in appearance for its distinctive color, which tends to be from off white, a beautiful tan to a slight shade of green. These tears are normally some of the largest you will find.

Omani Frankincense, while being considered of higher quality than what is grown in Somalia or Ethiopia, has nevertheless become even harder to come by than in the past. Because the oil industry is now so central to the economies of Arabia, fewer people are interested in harvesting the frankincense that grows wild in the deserts of Oman, and today only three tribes in the Dhofar region continue the tradition. It is not exported in large quantities from Oman, and it is only through connections in the Middle East which connect us directly with the harvesters that Phytognosis is able to offer this high quality frankincense.

If you've been disappointed in the past with frankincense, give Omani Hojari Frankincense a try! It's of a different subspecies than what is generally available in the US from places like Somalia or Ethiopia, and has a very distinct smell of its own.

Hojari Superior can be used in water to add aromatic fragrance to the water which is great for offerings in your spiritual practice. It is also said to clean the air and kills bacteria.
