As the fragrance which a flower gives off is the breathe of the flower, the fragrance which resins exude are the life source from deep within trees…
Resins… revered since antiquity as mystical and possessing healing energies, may very well be due to this source, this life force, which flows deeply through the veins of trees in the form of sap.
Essence oils which have been extracted from Frankincense and Myrrh Resin are very spicy, thick, and have very calming affects. They are known to be excellent for meditation purposes. Frankincense resin is tapped from trees of the genus Boswellia and Myrrh resin is tapped from trees of the genus Commiphora – both have their origins in Northern Africa.
Here at the EcoVillage the Reverend (ABRD) offers Tunisian Frankincense Oil which is very thick, spicy sweet, and green in color. Sudanese Frankincense Oil is the more traditional frankincense – loosely thick, spicy, slightly pungent, and dark brown in color. The Reverend (ABRD) also offers two Myrrh Oils. Tunisian Myrrh Oil is spicy (most oils from Tunisian tend to be uniquely rich and spicy). Moroccan Myrrh Oil is the more traditional myrrh and smells slightly more herbal/spicy. And then there is Frankincense and Myrrh Oil – the two forces combined create a very potent blend which is used widely due to it‘s heightened energetic qualities. Lastly, there are Frankincense and Myrrhessential oils which are very potent and have sharp spicy medicinal aromas.
Other resinal oils offered by the Reverend (ABRD) are in the Amber family – Tunisian Amber, Thick Amber (which has the actual Amber crystals in the oil) and Tunisian Amber Blend
