Most of us will have heard of frankincense before, but you might not know about its many healing and cleansing properties. Frankincense is harvested by semi-nomadic tribes in Ethiopia, who make a deep cut in the branches of the Boswellia papyrifera tree, and strip a small piece of bark below it. Sap wells up in the cut, and drips down to the stripped area, collecting there and drying into nodules. These are harvested from May to September, and sold as is. These resin nodules can be chewed to aid digestion, or burnt to release an aromatic smoke that helps to cleanse the air and reduce stress.

I am using a combination of ashwagandha, turmeric and boswella (frankincense) for osteoarthritis. It is not a pleasant combination, but seems to work. I received a few marble sized pieces and quite a bit of powdered frankincense. Since I powder it anyway, it doesn’t bother, but for those who want to burn it, it would be bothersome.

Can I use this to mix with bees wax to make wax food wrap paper?

Earth Tribe Frankincense will always be one of the staples in my daily life.
The amount of energetic weight it clears from a room that feels stagnant or stuck is miraculous and astounds me every time I burn it. The perfect kick-starter to start cleaning, decluttering or create a peaceful atmosphere.
I buy a pack of coals from the tobacco shops, and snap the coals in half with my thumbs, light the coal, place it on a flat rock and add a sprinkling of resin to let it create its beautiful smoky plumes. The smell is tantalising ! And has a slight citrus tinge to it.
By far superior than other Frankincense I've experiment and always worth the price tag. A bag lasts a long long while.

Love the scent. Just disappointed that the bag I received contained very small pieces of frankincense. They were not as chunky as the ones in the picture.

By far the best quality frankincense resin I have purchased to date - it has a powerful scent which is an absolute olfactory treat. Although cheaper options are available, they simply do not compare (and often smell of burning rubber when lit on a charcoal)

Great quality Frankincense, very powerful. I tried burning with coal and on incense burner, love it.

The resin doesn't burn well if lit itself. Research says that it should be placed on burnt coal which I personally wouldn't try because of the coal toxins.
