Frankincense, also called olibanum, is derived from Boswellia trees. It is a common incense in many traditions, and it has tremendous abilities.
Until recently, this rare and treasured frankincense resin has not been available in the U.S.
Maydi Frankincense is a blend of several grades of Boswellia frereana: Mushaad (1st choice) plus top three grades mixed and imported direct from Somalia. The tree is known as "Yagcar" by the Somalis, "Yegaar" in Yemen and "Luban Lami" in Arabic. Maydi is considered to be superior to other frankincense varieties by the Somali and Middle Eastern peoples. Historically, over 70% of its annual yield is imported by Saudi Arabia, where it is highly regarded as a prestigious chewing gum.
This frankincense species is found only on the steep vertical slopes of coastal Northern Somalia. Similar to other frankincense trees, Boswellia frereana favors soil rich in limestone and thrives in a hot climate, but unlike other species, it requires access to water and rainfall. Attempts have been made to introduce the species to Kenya and Southern Yemen with little success. Maydi is sorted into eight grades consisting of mushaad, mujarwal, fas kebir (kabeer), fas saghir (saqeer), jabaanjib, shorta, slif and foox in order from best quality to least. The top four grades have exclusively been exported to Saudi Arabia for chewing gum while the remaining grades are exported to China for use in medicine, and France, Germany and England for use as incense in religious ceremonies. It has a deeper, more balsamic and resinous aroma than the popular B. sacra and B. carteri species but with its own wonderful light and lively top notes.
Frankincense is related to Saturn, the Sun, and the sign of Leo. When Leo people are sick, to be healed quickly they must smell frankincense on a daily basis.
