During the rush and insanity of the holidays, I received a beat-up priority box on my doorstep that contained the most delicious post-distilled frankincense resin of the black Omani type. Two large gallon zip bags full to the top, plus a quart sized bag of Hawai'ian sandalwood chips, which smell even more amazing than the previously gifted bag of Hawai'ian sandalwood, arrived with a lovely note from the seller, and a whole mind's full of incense possibilities. I had to set them aside, along with some juicy Madagascar vanilla beans from another dealer, and a wee bag of sweet Soqotran frankincense that arrived during the hubbub. Now I'm ready to dig in.
