Papyrifera (Makker) Frankincense - Boswellia papyrifera - 1 oz.


Sudanese frankincense,  Boswellia papyrifera, also known as Makker, is a species of flowering plant and frankincense that is native to Ethiopia, Eritrea and Sudan,  also known as Gafal,Tarakarak

 This is the finest example of this type of resin we have found, with a sweetness reminiscent of the scent of citron candles. The color has the look and the scent of lemony candy. Great in incense blends whenever you are looking for a lighter citrus note. More lemon than lime. 

Also, Papyrifera contains a great deal of insensole the element in Frankincense that that is known to relieve stress.

This price is for 1 oz perfectly cleaned and translucent resin

 I would like to quote my friend Dan Riegler from his great blog Apothacary's Garden

Some sound and exiting research studies conducted over the past few decades had reached the right conclusions, but for the wrong trees and oleo-resins, which compounded the confusion. Now that correct chemical markers are assigned to the different species of Frankincense, we find among other critical identifying markers, that Boswellia Papyrifera has the unique chemical markers Incensole and Incensole Acetate that distinguish it from the other types of Frankincense.

The Elephant Tree is known as Makker in its Ethiopian homeland. This Boswellia species is known to be the largest Frankincense producer in its native habitat.  B. papyrifera remains the main source of Frankincense used in the United States by the Roman Catholic, Episcopal, and Eastern Orthodox churches. 


WOutside of incense production, B. papyrifera exudates are used extensively in creams, detergents, lotions, perfumes, soaps and other cosmetic products. The essential oil has become quite important as a fixative within the United States. The wood is commonly used in Sudan for small carpentry items such as pencils, boxes, matches, tool handles, picture frames, etc. Use of the timber for larger construction is less common, though the plywood is still used in some parts of the country.
