Dhofar is where the Boswellia Sacra trees grow. The sap from these trees becomes frankincense. The Dhofar frankincense is known as Hojari. It is a variety of frankincense that is considered to be the highest quality frankincense, not only for its beautiful calming, meditative citric aroma, but also its medicinal benefits. It has been used for thousands of years, both internally, and externally, for stomach and urinary problems as well as for oral hygiene and skin problems. It is believed the Boswellic acids found in Hojari resin are the contributing factor.
The colours range from the top of the range Royal Green, so called because only the Sultan & Royal Court had access to it. The next grade down is white, which, because of the shortage of green, was the next best thing available. From here we move into the spectrums of amber, which are considered a lower grade, even though it is still medical grade quality!
It is believed in Oman that the wise man who gifted the baby Jesus frankincense would have offered only the finest quality, which of course is Royal Green Hojari frankincense!
