This one sells out quickly, it has become an absolute favourite both online and in-store. 

This extremely RARE myrrh resin is sourced from Socotra Island (Yemen) and is highly prized for its harmonious perfume-like aroma which is notably different to all other myrrh varieties.  Due to its scarcity it can take months, if not longer, to secure this rare resin. Where possible we'll always try to offer pre-orders to ensure you don't miss out.

To ensure integrity and transparency, we regularly update our product photos to show our 'fresh current batch' of resins.  Choose from a range of resin size to suit your personal needs.

To ensure our resins are always FRESH,we don't keep excess stock. When we sell out of our current batch, we turn on our "Pre-Order" button which means you can reserve your NEW FRESH resins from our NEW FRESH HARVEST.

As we move through nature's seasons, enjoy the variation in colour and resin size, depending on the amount of rainfall for the season.

Tip: Kua is a particularly delicate resin and works best on a 'cool' charcoal.  At home, we tend to pop Kua onto our charcoal towards the middle of the charcoal burning time. This helps to ensure Kua's incredible nectar-honey aroma that it's known for is released without a burnt smell. You can also protect the resin from burning by using a light sprinkle of sand on your charcoal.

This is a rare opportunity to experience Commiphora Kua. 

Usage Tips

Tip for burning Kua:Kua is a particularly delicate resin and works best on a 'cool' charcoal.  At home, we tend to pop Kua onto our charcoal towards the middle of the charcoal burning time. This helps to ensure Kua's incredible nectar-honey aroma that it's known for is released without a burnt smell. You can also protect the resin from burning by using a light sprinkle of sand on your charcoal.

Tip for burning on charcoal:

Once your charcoal disc is fully lit we recommend leaving it to cool for about 5-10 minutes (longer if burning Kua) or until it turns grey before placing your resin on top of the charcoal.  This helps to release the natural oil from your resin without burning it with intense heat. Remember, once the bottom of your resin starts to burn, safely flip it over with a pair of mini tongs to get the most out of your resin. 

Tip for burning on a tea light burner:

After your resin has been gently heating for about 45 minutes (depending on your resin size and dimensions of your burner) you'll notice your resin may start to burn.  This is when it needs to be turned over. We recommend using a pair of mini tongs to safely flip your resin over and squash it once it's been softened by the heat. Squashing the resin open will expose it to a greater surface area of heat which helps to optimise the benefits of your resin.

Tip if your resin size is too big:

We recommend using a hand mortar and pestle (or similar tool) to create your desired size (if required).


Storage & Safety

Storage:

Resins are a natural product and need to be stored with care.  Store in a cool, dry place away from UV sunlight exposure.

Safety:  

Here at Frankincense Pure we only recommend burning frankincense and myrrh resins. We understand there may be people who choose to chew or ingest, however, we are not medically trained and can only recommend resin to be enjoyed by being burnt safely – on either a charcoal or tealight incense burner, for aromatic purposes. 

To safely burn incense, either on charcoal or in a tealight incense burner, ensure it’s out of sight and reach of children and pets and that the area is well ventilated.  Never leave your burner unattended and always ensure your burner is placed and remains on a heat proof surface when in use, away from all flammable items.  Brass, stainless steel and similar type burners remain HOT when in use, never handle when in use.
