Frankincense Resin Incense: First Grade Maydi (Organic Boswellia frereana from Somalia)

Frankincense, also called olibanum, is derived from Boswellia trees. It is a common incense in many traditions, and it has tremendous abilities.

Until recently, this rare and treasured frankincense resin has not been available in the U.S.

Maydi Frankincense is a blend of several grades of Boswellia frereana: Mushaad (1st choice) plus top three grades mixed and imported direct from Somalia.  The tree is known as "Yagcar" by the Somalis, "Yegaar" in Yemen and "Luban Lami" in Arabic. Maydi is considered to be superior to other frankincense varieties by the Somali and Middle Eastern peoples. 

This frankincense species is found only on the steep vertical slopes of coastal Northern Somalia. It has a deeper, more balsamic and resinous aroma than the popular B. sacra and B. carteri species but with its own wonderful light and lively top notes. 

Frankincense is related to Saturn, the Sun, and the sign of Leo. When Leo people are sick, to be healed quickly they must smell frankincense on a daily basis.

"Authentic frankincense is obtained from the olibanum tree. It contains great elemental powers.

"If frankincense is soaked in water, it has the power to make the elemental creatures of the water concur to our call.

"When frankincense is applied to the forehead, it has the power to make a headache caused by strong mental preoccupation to disappear.

"The smoke of frankincense has the power to make the masters and angels of the invisible world attend.

"Frankincense prepares the environment for the Gnostic rituals.

"Frankincense is a great vehicle for spiritual waves of pure devotion. It helps the mystical retreat because it serves as an instrument of devotion.

"In the ancient temples of the mysteries, those who were ill were surrounded with the smoke of frankincense in order to be cured...

"In order to cure the sick person, the patient must be surrounded by intense perfumes. Frankincense is the principal vehicle for the curative waves of the mind of the medic-magician, in combination with the vegetable elementals." - Samael Aun Weor, Esoteric Medicine and Practical Magic

Lovely, clean comforting smell

I Really like the smell of frankincense, there is something comforting and calming about it and the best part is that a little goes a long way. I have a brazier and an oil burner and sometimes i like to use the oil burner with a tea light candle cause then the scent lasts longer. The resin just melts and releases a scent for longer aa opposed to completely burning it on a charcoal. So now i use charcoal, or an oil burner or i just light one of the incense sticks. Everything is really great quality.
