Our Ethiopian Frankincense is blended with granules of real Myrrh resin, for a delightfully warm and earthy scent, with light notes of citrus. This traditional combination has been used in divine worship for millenia.

And when [the Magi] had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. - Matthew 2:11

All incense comes in easy to open durable plastic screw top containers to preserve fragrance and freshness. While most people are familiar with incense sticks, resin is really the original incense, as it is obtained from refined tree and plant sap and has been used all over the world for thousands of years, even in Ancient Egypt times. Compared to incense sticks, resin offers a stronger scent and doesn’t contain any unwanted additives.

As natural resin doesn’t burn on its own, you’ll need charcoal tabs to burn resin incense. Simply light the charcoal, spread the resin on the charcoal using a small spoon and enjoy the rich resin fragrances. Our Athonite Style incense is made at a Monastery here in the USA. This is wonderful smelling incense, and it lasts up to 30 minutes. We sell burners and censers as well, along with charcoal for the censers. This incense would be a relaxing addition to either your home, or your personal space such as a prayer room or devotional area. This container has 1 ounce of incense inside, which are small irregularly shaped chunks.

How to use the charcoal to burn resin incense: use a pair of tongs to place a charcoal disc in the incense burner. Hold a flame to the charcoal until sparks have trans versed the tab.The tabs ignite easily and quickly by holding a simple, small-flamed lighter to it. When the charcoal is fully heated, a gray, ashy soot will cover the red-hot, glowing tab. This indicates the charcoal is ready for use. Spread the incense on top of the charcoal using small spoon and enjoy the exotic fragrance released by the incense. This is traditional Athonite Style Incense for church and home use, in a wide variety of fragrances, suitable for every service and devotional occasion. Athonite Style Incense is made by monks as part of their daily obediences. Produced from pure frankincense resin and cut for use in charcoal burning censors.
