Carterii (Beyo) Frankincense - 2 oz. fine grade - Somalia
We are so pleased to be able at last to find a direct source for this top grade Carterii. We are sure you will find it delightful!
Carterii Frankincense also known as Beyo, has a classic soft Frankincense aroma, it is the scent many remember from childhood, used extensively in the Perfume industry and also in Church ritual.
It is from northern Somalia and considered by many to be some of the finest frankincense in the world. Many collectors and their families survive wholly or partly on incomes from collection. The gums come from the trees which grow on rocky slopes and gullies making collection hazardous.
These are high-grade tears with a pale tan/honey color, and the aroma is beautiful and light, with notes of Citrus and woody balsamic undertones.
