Frankincense has been used for centuries. The benefits associated with it are many. Zproyecto founder and owner, Zakiya Dhiyab Hamed Al Zakwani tells us more about the purity and benefits of this magical ingredient.

Frankincense comes in many types, of differing quality. It comes from countries such as Oman, Yemen and Africa. It is known worldwide that the best frankincense of the highest quality and luxury is sourced from Salalah, Dhofar in the Sultanate of Oman.

Light green frankincense is the most expensive frankincense, also known as Royal Green Hojari. It is very rare, so usually kept for royalty to enjoy. Even if you do source it, the price is triple to four times of the more common White Hojari ‘tears’. These are the first ‘tears’ released by the frankincense (Boswellia Sacra) tree. 

In Oman, many families use frankincense to purify their homes, offices, and environment. Frankincense helps remove impurities from an environment, giving the ambience a cleanse. This is done by burning the resin over burning coal, to return the spirituality and purity.

Benefits of Frankincense

Frankincense has a unique ability to purify an environment, bringing in peace, calm and tranquility.

It is used in various ways for its health benefits.

Submerge two or three medium size pieces of resin overnight in 330ml of water and then drink the water on an empty stomach in the early morning (if you have any illnesses please consult a doctor prior to starting).


– Helps with gastrointestinal problems, spasms, and constipation.

– Helps purify the blood stream, therefore cleansing our body from impurities and consequently giving us a glowing beautiful skin.

– Helps increase the immune system.

As incense, simply light it on a burning coal or hot surface, to release its aromatic magic.


– Brings in tranquility, calmness and removes any negativity.

– Helps to keep mosquitos away

– Used in a smoke cleaning technique for healing crystals. It is a beautiful technique to reprogram a stone or crystal and remove negativity. This particular cleansing process is called “smudging”.

Submerge two or three pieces of frankincense resin in water, along with pure rose water, for a natural skin cleansing routine (keep refrigerated).


–       Revitalized and vibrant skin

Chew on a green or white piece of soft frankincense resin


– Aids dental and gum hygiene

Frankincense is a holistic way to wellbeing. At Zproyecto, they solely source royal green Hojari from the Boswellia Sacra tree. This is the only frankincense that can be used for health and as an incense.
