Premium Green Hojari Frankincense Resin
One of the rare harvests from the Omani region is the premium green Hojari Frankincense resins, and these are exclusively sought after by many, especially those who consume the resins in infused water.
This medicinal grade of premium sacred frankincense is considered to be even higher than the sacred green hojari grade and is best used for consumption rather than burning.
Premium Green Hojari Frankincense Resin
This supreme quality comes from the sacred frankincense grade which is harvested in one of the four regions of Oman in the Middle East.
The colour of the premium green frankincense is a combination of translucent white, very pale lemon and a very little blue. The pieces are usually much larger than the common green, yellow, brown or black resins.
The taste is rather unique where it gives a deep lemon-lime citrusy aroma with subtle hints of eucalyptus and light pine. This grade is pure and comes without any bark remnants, hence the superior quality.
Why they are rare is because they are not commonly harvested, hence every few years, if you are lucky, you may be able to see them available in the market.
Most common users of these resins may not understand the quality difference but when you get to understand the different types, you will slowly learn to appreciate the differences from one another.
Why do people Burn or Consume Frankincense Resins?

Difference Between Hojari Frankincense and Other Frankincense Resins
As most people may think that frankincense resins are, all the same, they are not. They may come from the same Boswellia family, but each species has a different quality.
Here is a good comparison example, there are many apples being sold in the market, and you know for a fact that the Fuji Apples are the best grade among them, therefore Premium Green is the best among all the frankincense. I hope this helps to clarify the grade.
Out of the seven frankincense species found in the Gulf region, the Sacred Hojari or Hojary grade is known as the highest grade in the world.
Even top essential oil maker Young Living uses the sacred frankincense for their oils while they also have a lower grade which is the Somalia frankincense oils, which is half the price.
There are also many other frankincense resins types that come from Ethiopia, Yemen, Egypt, Saudi, Northwest India and Somalia, therefore one should know the difference between each of them.
