Frankincense / Olibanum resin - Boswellia sacra/carteri
- SUPERIOR Choice grade from the Sultanate of Oman, by far the largest brown tears we have ever seen. This
Oman Frankincense resin has beautiful light and lively top notes.
According to the Omani people "Fusoos" is the best kind of frankincense available in the market at all, characterized by the smell even before burning it. It’s very attractive because of the color. This type of Frankincense is also called “Large Pill Frankincense” because of its size which is much bigger than the “Fusoos Grade II”. Both grades I and II are in the same quality and only separated at harvest by their size.
Fusoos Grade I is specially used for religious events and places of worship such as churches, synagogues and mosques, owing to the fact of its great quantity of smoke profusion, requiring greater amount of charcoal to properly burn.
The Omani people consider this “Fusoos Grade I” as the best type of frankincense ever.
Omani conditions yield some of the finest quality frankincense in the world! The Omani, Aden, and Somalia frankincense resins are the same species and quite similar in aroma to each other. Try each of them and do your own comparisons.
Used throughout the ages to
enhance spirituality, mental perception, meditation, prayer and consciousness, frankincense soothes the spirit as it slows and deepens breathing.

Oman Frankincense Market Status:
International Supply from Oman is now available on a very limited basis.
In the past many of the trees in Oman have been over-harvested and not properly rested, forcing harvesters to travel further into the desert for quality resins . Economic growth and its expansion of towns, homes and businesses are also encroaching upon trees. The long-term survival of the international frankincense trade of Oman resins is now in the hands of the Sultantate of Oman. The government has taken control of the entire process and is now releasing stock on a very limited basis.
We have been doing our best to obtain resins and have just secured a small shipment.
If you seek steady supply of high quality frankincense with those wonderful light and airy citrusy top notes, at a lesser price then we recommend the frankincense resins from Aden, which is the trading capital of Oman's neighboring country, Yemen. We're certain you'll find them to be of very high quality.
The frankincense resins and oils we obtain from Somalia, are very fresh. You may want to investigate them as well. Enjoy!
