Product Description

Frankincense Tears Powder 

Also Known As - Boswellia carterii, Olibanum, Indian Franckincense, Arabic Frankincense, and Salai guggal

Wild Crafted - Ethiopia

Medicinal Action and Uses - It is used as a stimulant, but seldom used now internally, though formerly was in great repute . Pliny mentions it as an antidote to hemlock. Avicenna (tenth century) recommends it for tumors, ulcers, vomiting, dysentery and fevers. In China it is used for leprosy.

  • Its principal use now is in the manufacture of incense and pastilles. It is also used in plasters and might be substituted for Balsam of Peru or Balsam or Tolu. The inhalation of steam laden with the volatile portion of the drug is said to relieve bronchitis and laryngitis.
  • The ceremonial incense of the Jews was compounded of four 'sweet scents,' of which pure Frankincense was one, pounded together in equal proportion. It is frequently mentioned in the Pentateuch. Pure Frankincense formed part of the meet offering and was also presented with the shew-bread every Sabbath day. With other spices, it was stored in a great chamber of the House of God at Jerusalem.

Overview - Frankincense and the oil produced from it has been known for its healing powers and its ability to improve communication with the creator in the Middle East for thousands of years before it was made a gift of to Christ by the Magi. There are over 52 references to it in the Bible. Egyptian records show a great many references to it including its use in cosmetics, perfumes and as an embalming agent. The Chinese used it as part of a treatment for leprosy. Grown predominantly on the Somali coast and parts of the Arabian Peninsula, the resin is obtained by making deep cuts in the trunk of the tree lengthwise. Below this incision a narrow strip of bark is peeled off allowing the sap to run out, and as it touches air it begins to harden. It takes approximately three months to harden into the yellow “tears” that we are used to seeing will be sold at market. The sap is gathered from May until the rain showers start in September.

Parts Used - Dried resin, collected from stems and trunk.

Preparations - Powdered resin added to water, tincture, and very rarely as a tea.

Precautions - Not for use in pregnancy except under the supervision of a qualified healthcare practitioner.

  1. Lumps and 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Sep 2018

    clumps, totally with no powder, so firm I had to crunch them up with a mortar and pestle. Will not recommend.

    Maus' Response: A note about our powder: Kind viewer, you may find that our powder may clump in the bag, and must sometimes be powdered once more upon receipt. The reason for this is simple: We sell the best. Unlike many Frankincense powders on the market, this has not been stripped of its precious oil. Though it may clump, it is not cut with an anti-caking agent, or crap garbage powder to cut cost. It is pure. And a bit clumpy. From these Holy Clumps comes a superior scent. Just as good as if you, kind viewer, were to have smashed it up in your own mortar – just without the excessive toil.
