Third Grade Boswellia frereana Resin (Fas Kabir) Somali, Africa (mixture of Powder and very tiny pieces)
This Boswellia frereana resin is absolutely beautiful and the highest quality resin... 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.
This grade is excellent for infusing or making a distillation. The pieces are much smaller but the resin is still full of gum and would make excellent essential oil when distilled. Fas Kabir is mostly gravel so you get small pieces of gravel and powder all mixed up.
It also has powder in it so you can quickly put it into a mortar and pestle and make it all powder. If you put it in your freezer it will break up even faster.
You can use this grade to make my famous cookies also. This is the grade I use.
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.
