1st Grade Mushaad-Boswellia frereana Resin- Somali, Africa
This is 1st-grade Mushaad- Boswellia frereana.Mushadd in Arabic means BIG. It is approximately 2-3 inches long and 2 inches wide. It is absolutely beautiful and very high quality. As you see in the pictures, it is a honey-colored resin with hardly any flaws. It is clean and sharp. When broken open it oozes gum and glistens. It can be used for burning or making salves and lotions when infusing it in carrier oils.
Because it is considered very large pieces it oozes more oleoresin gum inside it, which will yield more essential oil when distilled. It will also yield more of its medicinal properties once making herbal infusions.
It is called The King of Frankincense. It is the Somali's pride and joy. This resin differs from most other resins because of its pure ole-resin and lack of water-soluble gum. It has a spicey yet honey smell. It contains a large percentage of alpha-pinene and alpha-thujene which makes it an excellent resin for inflammation. It is also called the Chewing Gum resin and is mostly sold to the Arab nations just for this purpose. Burning it smells incredible also. This resin is great for when you have mouth issues or a toothache.
My goal is to sell quality resins at an affordable price. Some of you know me as the Queen of Resins because of the knowledge I have from constantly studying these resins and the friendships I have created with those who sell and harvest these beautiful trees.
These resins are harvested by Fair Trade Standards only.
Resins may irritate the skin so please handle with care.
