Frankincense Papyrifera Resin has been used for protection, clearing energy and meditation. Resin has been used to connect with divine through heavenly fragrance. Burning resin can help heal and stabilize our minds while coming into a deeper knowing of self.
Frankincense Papyrifera Resin is marked by high levels of octyl acetate, octanal, incensole, and incensole acetate. Octyl acetate is found in alcohol and orange peels, while octanal has a fruity odor and citrus flavor.
Both of these compounds give Frankincense Papyrifera its strong fruit and orange overtones. Incensole and incensole acetate are compounds with anti-inflammatory, brain boosting and relaxing properties. Together, these four compounds create a powerful, aromatic resin.
Frankincense Papyrifera has traditionally been used in Ethiopian households because it comes from Frankincense trees native to the region. It is used in these cultures for therapeutic incense and in traditional coffee ceremonies.

How to Burn Resin:
With multiple different resin burners available, there are many ways to burn resin. We recommend using an adjustable resin burner, with these burners you may use a candle and adjust to the desired heat.
Burning resin using a charcoal:
- Using tongs, light a charcoal with matches or lighter until it ignites.
- Once it is lit, put the charcoal in an incense burner (avoid wood or glass as it would burn or shatter.)
- To prevent burning any surfaces fill the bottom of the container with sand, stones or dirt.
- Add a small amount of resin to the top of the charcoal. As the resin burns feel the atmosphere get blanketed in aromatic bliss!
