For a few years now, we, Georg Popp from Munich and Alex Moll from Solingen, have been importing al-Hojari incense from the Sultanate of Oman for sale through our Oman Shop. We import directly from the desert of the Dhofar region in southern Oman.
The Omani frankincense is quite different in quality from other frankincense varieties in the world. The proportion of boswellic acids in Omani frankincense is considerably higher than in Ethiopian or Indian frankincense, for example. The benefits of these boswellic acids are increasingly attracting the attention of medical practitioners and naturopaths due to their anti-inflammatory effects.
We have therefore looked for a partner in Germany who processes "our" frankincense carefully and produces care products and food supplements exclusively with organic methods and together with other high-quality ingredients. We pay special attention to the production without chemical additives. In addition to its general anti-inflammatory effects, frankincense has been used to treat joint problems, inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract and asthmatic diseases.
The creams and capsules are made from frankincense extract produced in Germany.
Our frankincense massage oils and creams will soon be made again. We hope to be able to offer them again in new packaging by the end of May.
