Natural resins

René Schönefeld’s natural resins originate from Europe, Africa and Asia. Our natural resin is used mainly in many religious and spiritual ceremonies. Additionally, it is burned for mediation and relaxation too. Most people are familiar with incense sticks and not with resins, even though resins are the original incense. Compared to incense sticks, resin offers a much stronger scent and doesn’t contain unwanted additives. The aromas produced by the resins myrrh, frankincense, benzoin and copal resins are popular due to their deep and rich fragrances.

Resin is obtained from refined tree and plant sap which has been used worldwide for thousands of years. Back in ancient Egypt, everyday large quantities of natural resins were burned in temples as it was fundamental to worship the gods. It has been a popular aromatic material for centuries.

As natural resin doesn’t burn on its own, you’ll need charcoal tabs from Three to burn resin incense. By lightening the charcoal and spreading the resin on the charcoal using a small spoon, you can enjoy the rich resin fragrances. These charcoal tabs are available by Three Kings.
