Resin is incense in its most pure form, top of the line in incense burning. Resins have been used for thousands of years right through to today in religious ceremonies by many religions and are also popular for the beautiful and pure scents they release. The scents released are fragrant, pure and intense so only a small amount is needed – so even a small bag will go farther than you thin. You do not use these granules like ‘normal’ incense sticks or cones. You will need a heat resistant container and charcoal tablets to burn the granules over.
The resin and essential oil of frankincense have been used for healing a variety of conditions, both internally and externally.
