    Loose Incense Recipe with Frankincense and Myrrh

    by Andrea Butje on March 18, 2019

    If you’ve never burned loose resin incense, it’s very easy.

    There’s something soothing about it too—just the sight of the incense smoke rising from the natural loose incense, perhaps out of a beautiful incense burner, can help you feel connected to the moment.

    August 22, 2016

    Walking through the spice markets in Dubai, I saw baskets and bins full to overflowing with exotic, chunky resins—including Frankincense and Myrrh resins. I love Frankincense and Myrrh essential oils and resins. When I visit places like the outdoor markets in Dubai, the raw resins are a perfect part of the atmosphere—it’s a bustling marketplace, rich with the exotic scents of spices heaped in baskets, vibrant colors around every corner, and loud merchants selling jewelry and wraps and rugs.  […]
