In ancient times, frankincense was used by upper-class Egyptians to ward off foul odors, which were associated with evil. It is still burned as incense today but needs an outside heat source, such as incense charcoal, to burn. Frankincense is an oleo-gum-resin that seeps from the tree when the bark is injured or cut. The liquid solidifies on contact with air into globular chunks or "tears." When ground, frankincense powder quickly hardens again upon air exposure. The resinous, dry and balsamic aroma is a component of many perfumes.
Safety Guideline: For external use only. Not for use in pregnancy except under the supervision of a qualified healthcare practitioner.
Coming from "Egypt" where we inherited using this wonderful natural gum for many purposes, I was looking for a high quality Frankincense Tears for a long time. This product is really great, huge amount that lasts so long, and very high quality. How we use it? Many many things, just to mention few of them: 1)- Incense "the most famous use" it has a great aroma and disinfects your home against harmful bacteria and bugs. 2)- "Cough/Mucus/Asma" remedy: soak one tear drop in 8 oz boiling water for 15 minutes then drink the water. 3)- as chewing gum, it cleans the teeth, giving you a very nice and fresh mouth smell and protects your gum, teeth and throat from harmful bacteria. (very important tip, to avoid it sticks in your teeth keep it in the fridge for an hour before chewing, and enjoy) 4)- with Egyptian "Myrrh" one tear each soaked in boiling water then cool and sifted, then used as an external vaginal wash, very safe, effective and kills any bad bacteria or bad odor. 5)- As a digestive aid after big meals, "chew" or drink its juice as described in # 2) 6)- "Hair Wash" "25 oz of Frankincense Tears juice + 3-5 drops of lavender oil or tea tree oil (helps with dandruff). 7)- "facial mask" (some frankincense juice with rose water and rice flour (make a spreadable dough) leave it for 10 minutes, keep using it once a week to unclog and clean pores. 8)- Drinking or chewing Frankincense is great for our immune system and for insulin regulation. 9)- Use frankincense oil "diffuse/inhale" for calmness, stress relief, and good sleep.
This is an excellent product at an excellent price. I have purchased many different types of boswellia carterii, but am happiest with Frontier's, and am extremely happy with Iherb's price. A fair proportion of the pieces are reasonably large. I use it for an unusual purpose--I chew the tears. This is a common practice in the middle east--it's good for you and for your teeth. I will buy again.

Frankincense Tears - Not for consumption

This product is good for burning but not for consumption. The quality is not the same as those that are actually meant to be consumed as chewing gum or soaked in water. For consumption, please look for Boswellia FREREANA MAYDI or Royal Green Hojari.

I JUST CAUTION YOU BECAUSE I SAW THE REVIEW HERE SAYING THEY EAT THOSE, NONO. TO USE THOSE RIGHT, JUST USE AS INCENSE, AND EVEN SO, USE WITH CAUTION, CAUSE THOSE MAKE FIRE AND BLACK SMOKE LIKE CRAZY... USE ONLY IN FIREPLACE! IF YOU CAN COMMIT THE MESS, THOSE CAN BE REALLY GREAT INCENSE WITH SUCH A BARGAIN PRICE.
