    Hi all,

    I'm looking to buy some Papyrifera Frankincense, and Myrrh (maybe Commiphora Myrrha?) resins, and maybe essential oils. I'm looking for opinions on the best online stores for this.

    I'm pretty sure I want the Papyrifera type of Frankincense, but I will probably try some other types like Neglecta. Some retailers don't even know what they're selling, so I want to avoid places like that.

    I'm less aware of the differences in Myrrh types. I'm leaning towards Commiphora Myrrha, as I mentioned. Does anyone know the differences between the various kinds of Myrrh, in terms of scent, effects etc.?

    I have an Herbalizer and a Crafty, so I plan to try vaping these things before trying other methods of ingestion. Based on the research I've done, I think vaping should be harmless. People smoke and even snort these substances without negative side-effects, from what I've read. And I know Frankincense and Myrrh is chewed in the Middle-East.

    Let me know what you think, thanks.

    I have gotten both Frankincense and Myrrh from Bouncing Bear Botanicals and also Mountain Rose herbs.
    Not sure of the genus of either, but the quality has been top shelf. Please let us know your findings as to the different varieties.

    They ship international but at a quick glance you'll get them anywhere. Not sure if I would vape it, I used the small charcoal pucks in a lidded burner, excellent smell but very heavy smoke comes off it, really pungent.

    Took down a tree in our garden which had a perfumed sap, collected as much as I could before it was felled. It's the same type of resin and hardens off well as it dries.

    Found this article while looking for the Prinknash.

    Thanks for the replies. In terms of methods, have you all just burned it in a burner? And did you notice any changes in your state of consciousness?

    Some info on the different types of Frankincense are listed here: http://www.floracopeia.com/Essential-Oils/wild-harvested-frankincense-oil-boswellia-papyrifera.html

    There's this page on Myrrh, but I don't know if they have differing effects: http://www.eaincense.com/commiphora-genus.html

    It seems Papyrifera Frankincense has the most effect on the way you feel, due to incensole acetate.

    I think I'll stick to a retailer in the US, since that's where I am. It should be cheaper that way.

    My thoughts are that vaping would be better than burning it, since incense smoke can be toxic, and vaping would lead to no smoke, would use less, and be direct. But I haven't found much information on vaping incense. I have found info on vaping various herbs and essential oils. I tried vaping kava tea herbs last night after I drank some of the tea. I'll have to try it again without drinking it.

    Here's a thread discussing snorting and smoking myrrh resin: http://tripme.co.nz/forums/showthread.php?12431-Myrrh-(White-Rock-Opium)

    Right now the incenses I'm most curious about are Papyrifera Frankincense (and maybe combining it with Neglecta), Myrrh (I might order a few types), Benzoin, and Copal. Combining some or all of these may produce interesting effects.

    Here's a link to an interesting article on psychoactive biblical plants: http://www.philosopherspage.com/psychoactive-plants-in-the-bible/
