Resins, Resins & More Resins

Resin incense is incense in it's most pure and natural form. Resins are harvested from the sap, bark roots or wood of trees, shrubs and plants. Frankincense, Copals, and Dragon's Blood are among the most well know resins and often times the building blocks for aromatic resin incense blends.

Royal Hojari Frankincense is one of the finest frankincense varieties in the world.  Revered as the resin of Kings, Royal Hojari Frankincense is the sap of the Boswellia tree and is both a resin and a gum. This variety has been harvested from the tops of the youngest, from the Al Hajar Mountains in Oman.

Frankincense has been part of mankind’s life for thousands of years and was once considered more precious than gold. Versatile, it has been used over the centuries to treat ailments and ensure well-being. Since Biblical times, frankincense has been used extensively for its anti-bacterial, infection and virus killing properties.

Time-honoured Hojari is considered to be the most precious and spiritually powerful of all the frankincense varieties. This grade of frankincense resin is extremely rare and offered only in limited supply.

Royal Hojari is all-natural and pure. Because of its rarity and unsurpassed quality, Royal Hojari is the frankincense reserved by the Sultan of Oman for his own personal use. 

This beautiful jade-colored resin has a fragrance both delicate and refined, with a complex bouquet containing notes of citrus, pine, honey with hints of eucalyptus.

Dragon’s Blood is a highly sought after softly sweet smelling resin. It can be compared to the scent of amber, but its fragrance quality is more of a natural one and it is also less sticky/sweet smelling than common amber incense. Dragon's Blood is extremely rich and does a beautiful job at setting an upmost soothing mood to any space.

Copal resin comes from trees, which are considered medicinal to the Mayas in southern Mexico. These medicinal trees are traditionally used for clearing the body of diseases and also to keep mosquitoes away.

Copal incense has been considered sacred to the people of Mexico, as well as South and Central America, since ancient times. It is assumed that large amounts of copal resin were burned atop the Aztec and Mayan pyramids as offerings to the Gods. In many Mayan ruins, copal was discovered in the burial grounds, confirming its spiritual significance to the Mayan practices of spirituality and worship.
