While at Young Living’s Lavender Farms I enjoyed a class on our seed to seal process. During this class they had Dr. Hassan share about Frankincense. His grandfather has the partnership for the fields Young Living uses in Somalia where we harvest our Frankincense. What is so awesome is that he shared some of this frankincense resin with ME! (see pic below) They chew on it like chewing gum, so the healing and life preserving properties of frankincense are absorbed through their gums. His grandfather is 119 years old…119!!! How amazing is that?
In Somalia, Frankincense resin is how they measure wealth. 1 kilo of frankincense resin = 1 million dollars! The picture below is a slide from the presentation, but I thought it was neat to see the resin “leaking” and being harvested from the trees.
In this picture is Dr. Hassan Saleh Hassan, a bottle of frankincense, and me! Now, guess how old he is! I was way off by my guess. Post your guesses in the comments, whoever is the closest I will send a small package of samples. Post your guesses by July 6th!
