Frontier Natural Products, Frankincense Tears, 16 oz (453 g)12 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

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.
iHerb Customer Reviews
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.
I chew these morsels of frankincense, strong tasting at first like any tree resin, but now I love the taste. I chew it to help alleviate my asthma, and help maintain healthy gums.
