Well that and I love working with resins. Abramelin oil being a good wood varnish, I love it LOL. So the amonia evoperates off I'm guessing? Never used it for this sort of thing.
Also another question for you and Harry would be, what are the advantages to useing wine vs say rum for myrrh? I have sat myrrh in red wine and I can relate, wow does it smell wonderful! I like the idea of white wine with frankincense and am thinking of trying that as well as amonia. So many new ideas.

Here is a photo of some Frankincense that I plonked
into some Ammonia this morning:
And here is a photo of that same Frankincense this
It is all gone to milk, with just a bit of orange
resin and some feck showing on the bottom.
Just brushed some on a scrap of board left over
from putting up some shelves, and it seems like
it might work as a wood sealer, too.
Did I mention that the Annointing Oil also works
as a varnish for furniture?
