***** Green Hojari Frankincense (Luban)
By Virgo Organics
Artistry & Nature combined
This is the best there is on the market! Handpicked fresh in Oman, the highest quality available. Medicinal Grade Organic Frankincense from the species Boswellia Sacra.
This frankincense is traditionally and carefully harvested from organic mature trees in the Salalah region of Dhofar, Oman. This is a region where the frankincense grade is considered so high, it was specially set aside for royalty. Carefully hand sorted for color. This high grade of Frankincense resin has been imported fresh, directly from Oman.
Long used in aromatherapy as a mood enhancer, a recent study carried out by researchers at Johns Hopkins University found that, when inhaled, pure frankincense smoke activates poorly understood ion channels in the brain. These are closely associated with emotion. This activity stimulates the production and release of TRPV3 – a protein which helps reduce anxiety and symptoms of depression. Green Hojari is also excellent for relieving migraines and headaches.
Green Hojari Frankincense offers a deep lemon-lime citrusy aroma with subtle hints of eucalyptus and light pine. The color varies from a mix of lime green, clear, opaque, tanish green and dark green. Depending on the climate at the time of harvest, you may get more of one color of green than at other times.
Frankincense is an amazing Aroma to burn, however Hojari is also known for it's medical benefits for internal use by making frankincense water.
-- Below are some of the perks associated with the consumption of this beneficial water, followed by how to:
It Frees The Joints of Pain & Swelling
Proponents say that frankincense water possesses both analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, and that’s why its regular consumption can be helpful for those who are suffering from osteoarthritis and have to put up with stiff, achy and swollen joints on an everyday basis.
It Promotes Top-Notch Digestion
Middle Easterners regularly take frankincense water in order to promote better digestion. There are also a handful of GI tract problems that the healthy beverage is said to be very good for. In fact, frankincense water is commonly employed as a home remedy for excess gas (flatulence) and stomach ulcers in the Middle East.
It Helps Make the Immune System Strong
Since frankincense water is known to help encourage superb digestion, it promotes a stronger immune system. After all, experts say that a huge chunk of your immunity is actually situated in your gut! Also helping to keep your body more protected against invading microbes is the fact that frankincense water has antimicrobial properties.
It Flushes Out Impurities and Toxins
Based on studies, frankincense water is a mild diuretic, which means that it gently increases the amount of urine expelled. As a result, more of the waste products and poisonous substances in the bloodstream are eliminated. In other words, consuming frankincense water on a regular basis helps detoxify the body.
It Keeps the Skin Tight, Smooth and Healthy
Frankincense water is perhaps one of the cheapest and most effective anti-aging solutions on the face of the planet. With superb anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, its regular consumption can help delay skin aging. By the way, frankincense water may also be used topically!
It Helps Relieves Problems with the Upper Airways
Got a nasty sore throat? Simply drink a very small amount of frankincense water throughout the day to attain relief from the symptoms. For many years now in the Middle East and Africa, the said beverage is employed for putting an end to bouts of cough, asthma and even acute bronchitis.
It Lowers One’s Risk of Cancer
Just like what’s mentioned earlier, scientists believed that the intake of frankincense water is the reason behind why there are considerably fewer cancer cases in the Middle East. This is what a study revealed: certain compounds present in frankincense resin prompted those deadly and fast-spreading cancer cells to kill themselves!

::: How to make Traditional Omani Frankincense Water :::
(A simple DIY project)
All you need is:
* 3-4 pieces of Green Hojari Frankincense
* 1 litter of Water (I used Fiji but you can use any drinking water)
* Strainer or cheesecloth
* Empty bottle to store your water. Personally I used a cleaned out decorative glass vodka bottle. BPA-free reusable water bottles or recycled liquor bottles work best.
**** Ok, now that you have all your supplies ready, here we go...
1. Take 3-4 pieces, rinse off under running water to remove any dust, then place into your 1 litter bottle of water. Twist cap back on, shake it up quick and set that aside to sit for a few hours. ---As you're Frankincense is dissolving in the water, it kinda looks like popcorn pieces, as it turns white when it dissolves. This is normal.
2. When ready, take your strainer (or cheese cloth) and strain it into your empty bottle. If it's too hard to strain directly into the other bottle, you can always use a large mixing cup to strain it in and then pour into the bottle from there. Leave the remaining dissolved frankincense pieces in the original bottle of water when you're done. If they fall out when straining, just plop them back in there. It's okay if some of the smaller pieces and up and you're finished water.
3. (Optional step): If you would like you can go ahead and start your next round. The frankincense pieces that are left over can be can be used once more before needing to replace the pieces. If you do not want to remake anymore, toss those pieces out as they will not stay good without being dissolved.
4. You are now ready to enjoy your homemade Frankincense water! 😍 If you are new to this, please introduce to your body slowly. I recommend no more than a half ounce daily for the first few weeks. Remember just because it's good for you, doesn't mean you should drink LOTS of it. *For safe daily consumption, I recommend 2 to 3 oz at most.
Frankincense is one of the most highly coveted "gums" in the world, with its oldest known use dating back to the 16th century BC. It is still widely used and being tested for its health effects today. Namely, its effect on the immune system, joints, the stomach, and even the brain. If you suffer from stomach ulcers, arthritis or poor memory, frankincense water could be a viable treatment option if consumed safely.
**** Please DO NOT consume the Essential oil, this is not safe. Only use medical grade Frankincense Gum/Resin pieces. Not all frankincense is created equal, make sure that you are using medical grade Frankincense if you're going to use it for internal use.
*Store all resins in a cool dark location for longevity.--- For humid conditions, you can store resin inside your refrigerator.
*Comes in multiple sizes, please see drop down menu.

• The more thoroughly a soap bar can dry out between uses, the longer it will last. Make sure to use a soap saver or soap dish so that your soap can dry out between uses. Don't allow your soap to sit in a puddle of water or let the shower pour down on it. For soap saver trays and pouches, please visit our shop.
• Softer water usually makes your soap last longer because the soap lathers more quickly so you don't have to rub it as much.
• A person who uses a washcloth, sea sponge, or a different lathering aid will use less soap than one who rubs the soap directly over the skin.
Yes we do. PLEASE contact me if you have ANY questions or need a certain product made without certain ingredients & I will do my best to accommodate you.
