Frankincense Resin - Olibanum - Boswellia Carterii Resin (Pea Size)

CAS Number: 8050-07-5
EINECS Number: 232-474-1

Source

Frankincense is an aromatic resin derived from trees of the genus Boswellia, particularly B. sacra (B. carterii, Hojary or Beeyo), B. frereana (Coptic resin or Maydi), B. papyrifera (Sudanese Frankincense) and B. serrata (B. thurifera, Indian Frankincense or Salai). Somalia accounts for most of the commercial production, but the resin is also harvested in other African countries such as Ethiopia and Sudan. The milky sap naturally exudes from the bark and hardens into clear yellow teardrop shaped lumps known as tears, but this can be forced by making incisions in the bark and tapping the resin.

Properties

Frankincense resin is available in various grades based on its age, aroma, purity, shape and colour, but it is usually sold as a light yellow powder (siftings) or in yellow pea-size lumps.

Generally, the more opaque resins are viewed as being better quality, with Hojari and Silver considered to be the highest grades. The resin is edible and can be chewed like gum, but feels stickier. Translucent Frankincense with no brown or black impurities is preferred for internal consumption.

When burnt, the resin emits a fragrant odour described as a balsamic-spicy, slightly lemon scent, with a pine undertone. Steam distillation of the African Frankincense produces an essential oil with a balsamic-sweet fragrance, while the Indian Frankincense oil has a fresher scent.
