Frankincense from Oman 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.
Omani conditions yield some of the finest quality frankincense in the world! 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!
