Incense of the Week: Black Frankincense

Black FrankincenseFragrance - Our black frankincense incense is ethereal and sweet with hints of sea air and pepper. Made without oils or a scented base, the only thing you smell is the ground black frankincense resin. Something that any incense lover just has to experience - Extremely easy on the senses. 

BenefitsLong used in aromatherapy as a mood enhancer, a recent study carried out by researchers at Johns Hopkins University found that the burning of pure frankincense resin activates ion channels in the brain that can help to alleviate anxiety and stress. It was also found to stimulate the release of TRPV3 - a protein that drastically reduces the symptoms of depression.

The Resin - Our black frankincense resin is traditionally and carefully harvested from organic mature trees in the Dhofar region of Oman, a region where the grade of frankincense has been set aside for royalty.

Well, what a fascinating surprise!Frankincense,my favourite incense, recently proved biochemically to boost serotonin in the brain,(a lack of believed to be the primary cause of clinical depression) and now found to have anti-cancer properties(from cows eating parts of the tree!!!),this is an outstanding and quite unique incense. Normally I avoid frankincense except in pure resin form but these black sticks are something else.Strong,potent,complex,very 'earthy' with an appealing 'dark' tone. Quite magnificent. If you like frankincense, you will not be disappointed. If you are a connoisseur only using the purest resin, you will find these sticks not the least bit disappointing and you will find these sticks different from the norm. Strangely 'earthy',pungent, peppery with a wonderful quality of bitter edge. Sounds awful i know but it is,in fact,a fascinating delightful.
