Frankincense Resin (Boswellia frereana) Maydi 1st Choice Somalia - 1oz
Maydi Frankincense is actually several grades of Boswellia frereana! Mushaad (1st choice) plus top three grades mixed and imported direct from Somalia. Until recently, this rare and treasured frankincense resin has not been available in the U.S. 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. 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. Certified Organic.
