Our Frankincense Essential Oil – Boswellia carteri – is a single origin oleoresin based oil, processed from the resin of the trunk of the Boswellia tree of Somalia.
The oil has a multitude of benefits as an essential oil and is one of the most sought after essential oils on the market. Used by those with an active lifestyle, in aromatherapy, as a spiritual oil, to aid in reducing pain as an anti-inflammatory and until recently, claims are being made for its assistance in addressing some cancers though there is research ongoing and no substantiated proof has been documented.
Frankincense essential oil blends well with most other oils. The scent of Frankincense makes it an ideal oil for an incense or perfume blended with other exotic oils as a pulse point fragrance or in a vaporiser as a room deodoriser. Frankincense is an excellent additive blended with massage creams, facial serums and balms. Frankincense is known to induce a calm state of mind, helps to reduce pain and opens the breath.
There are 4 main species of Frankincense from Oman, serrata species from India and most of the Boswellia carteri Frankincense is grown and processed in Ethiopia and Somalia though much of Frankincense granules are exported and distilled in countries like the United Kingdom. The oil has a special relationship in the Heart Chakra and has religious fame as a special gift in the bible accompanied by gold and myrrh.
