Desert Gold Frankincense


Product Description

Legacy Icons presents Desert Gold which is a premium, small-grain frankincense of select quality. This is a worship grade frankincense resin that we have purchased from a trade route in Northern Africa. This is not like a usual Athonite or Orthodox style incense but rather a resin or sap. Certainly used in both Orthodox and Roman Catholic services this has been a standard to burn since Christ's Nativity or birth in Bethlehem. Gathered directly from the tree, this incense will burn very clean and also burns quickly for quick prayer time or add more for longer. It begins with bright fragrances of pine and lemon, and develops into a deeper scent of fine leather and seabreeze.

    out of my orders from Legacy Icons, Desert Gold is by far my favorite, it has a blend of lemon and pine that is striking

  7. Very pleasant aroma 5 Star Review

    As mentioned in my review for this company's North African Frankincense, I'm pretty new to the whole idea of burning incense at home; so I don't know enough about the nuances to comment. From a beginner's point of view, I found this brand or type to be equally satisfying. I would recommend either type without hesitation, and I'll be back for more when I run out of my current stocks!

  8. Not as good as the North Africa Frankincense 3 Star Review

    Posted by on Apr 18th 2016

    When I used it, it seemed to make quite a bit of smoke, but it burned up so quickly and had only a faint odor. I prefer the North Africa variety.

  9. Excellent and "churchy" 5 Star Review

    Desert Gold Frankincense is the scent I remember from childhood. It is strong and rich, and smoky! It burns well and completely. A favourite!
