Frankincense Neglecta Resin

Adam Michael has this to say “My sixth Boswellia resin and now I admit I am struggling to find new adjectives to describe a scent that is once more chiefly a churchy, citrus and astringent affair! Full of the lemony fresh qualities throughout and tinged perhaps in this instance with some old wood character. Another very nice resin for burning** and all the resin pieces are very tough and brittle with the colours varying from yellowy gum brown to grey black. Best to grind this down to powder in your mortar prior to burning for best results.”

Botanical Name: Boswellia neglecta

Origin: Ethiopia

** At Hermitage Oils should you wish to burn the material neat we would recommend burning the material on an oil burner opposed to using charcoal disks. If you follow this recommendation we also advise placing a piece of foil in the well of your oil burner and then laying the resin on top. This prevents lots of mess and cleaning after use and by using an oil burner you get to enjoy much more of the aroma of the resin than when using charcoal disks.
