Frankincense from Oman 12-20mm
Al-hojari frankincense, origin Sultanate of Oman, Dhofar, handpicked pieces, between 12 and 20 mm direct import!
Since time immemorial, the best frankincense in the world has come from the south of Oman, the border region to Yemen. This was the starting point for the famous Frankincense Route. This very fine frankincense from the Dhofar mountains exudes the intense, typical balsamic frankincense scent due to its high content of essential oils. This is what distinguishes its quality from frankincense from other countries.
We sifted out pieces between 12 and 20 mm from the raw frankincense. This size is very suitable for the smaller and middle burners. They are mixed in the colours white, brownish, greyish or reddish often with a green shimmer. This is not tourist incense, but quite typical of Omani life. But Omanis, however, prefer larger pieces. In the south of Oman, there is a monsoon in summer. It is then humid on the coast and the fog moves into the hot and dry desert. These special climatic conditions in the harvest area create the best growing conditions in the world for the high-quality "Al-Hojari" frankincense. This distinguishes Omani frankincense from all other types of frankincense. With the help of Omani friends, we import unsorted frankincense directly from the desert. This way we are sure to receive only authentic goods that are not sorted by middlemen or blended and/or stretched with other varieties.
We offer the frankincense in airtight polyethylene bags or in the sustainable tin can.
