Three Kings incense Pontifical is a mixture of black and gold glazed gum granules. Aroma-wise, Pontifical is a classic combination of rich and high-quality types of sweet incense.
Pontifical incense consists of three types of gum granules: Olibanum, Myrrh and Gum Benjoin. These granules are obtained from different gum trees, in particular the African Boswellia Papyrifera and Commiphora Myrra and the Asian Styrax Benzoin. The granules have been washed in perfume oils and are colored with pigments which are all EU-approved.
Pontifical is an incense meant for use in rituals. Burning incense is a rich sensory experience and it should preferably be burned on charcoal tabs specifically designed for incense burning. This incense should not be used as a food additive or for pharmaceutical purposes.
Three Kings IncenseThree Kings incense is made of the best natural resins from all over the world. To burn Three Kings incense a separate heat source (like our natural or quick light charcoal tablets) is needed. Our incense is used in many religious and spiritual ceremonies. Some cultures use incense to welcome guests or to clean the houses from bad spirits. The main ingredient of incense is Olibanum or Frank Incense. Olibanum is taken from the Boswellia tree that grows on the Eastern tip of Africa. The milky juice from the tree dries out into grains. Bark residue can cause a light-yellow color. The grains are washed in natural oil and can be mixed with other incense types, resins and substances such as sandalwood, myrrh, benjoin and lavender.
As hoped, this incense provides a wonderful accompaniment to my daily reflections.The fragrance brings to mind the many liturgical services attended as a youth when adoration and respect were intended.
Very fragrant soothing scent. Very good quality incense, a little goes a long way.
It smells good, no problem whatsoever to use it and the blend is phenomenal
