The locals have many names for quality Etheric resins of Boswellia trees but they call Elongata "Zam'ano" meaning gum. Unlike majority of Boswellia tree resins Elongata completely dissolve when using a candle incense burner. It creates a strong and beautiful unique scent and has a very comforting effect. The best Etheric resins in the world are obtained from Boswellia trees that thrive in the harshest desert conditions and Elongata is one of these types.
