Priory is our simplest incense, being pure frankincense with no additional oils added. Frankincense, or gum olibanum, comes from South Arabia and the Horn of Africa, and has been used as the basis of incense for several thousand years.
The Benedictine Monks of Prinknash Abbey have been blending incense since 1906, when the community was on Caldey Island and are now the oldest major incense blenders in Europe. The monks developed unique processes for blending the purest Arabian frankincense with precious aromatic oils and spices and created superior recipes for a range of incenses. The blends now produced at the abbey are made to long established recipes. Consistent excellence ensures that each blend has its regular devoted customers in every continent.
