Our resplendent Royal Hojari Frankincense rises from rocky slopes in the misty, monsoonal magic and green oasis of the Dhofar Valley. Schizogenous gum oleoresin reservoirs vein the inner trunk, which are incised to exudate the milky emulsion that indurates over days in the sun into solid tears of sap. Royal Hojari is a distillation of the milkiest Boswellia sacra pearls considered to be cardinal quality.
Similar in scent to classic Carterii with a warming resinous medley of amberous, nuanced-pine yet, Royal Hojari is topped with dulcet green-lemon notes as it is comprised of a little more limonene. As such, upon inhalation this incense of eminence hits the heart with balsamic embers that expand feelings of elation.

Holding the wisdom of the ages, this highest grade Hojari is as prized today as in was in Queen Hatshepsut’s day. Where quantity was coveted for chewing and imbuing daily activities with wafts of fragrant frankincense, and the quality was desired for cosmetics, crushing into Kohl, and calibrating into Kyphi. The female pharaoh and early arboriculturist organized a two-year naval caravan to Gods Land and brought back ships laden with heaps of aromatic oleoresin and the most precious cargo, a treasury of 31 Frankincense trees, to be replanted upon arrival at her epic architectural temple complex of Deir el-Bahri. Inside, the walls of Djeser-Djeseru, meaning Sublime of the Sublimes, were illustrated with the illustrious expedition, along with reliefs depicting ingenious tree transplanting (showing innovation and care for root ball protection and handling).
Whether it be the fragrant fumes or precious perfumes, Royal Hojari pleasantly activated minds of anytime, and in kind, its resinous nectar, brings on a fresh dawn, of potent balms to soothe the body and seriously satiate the skin.
