Frankincense has long been considered a most holy and precious oil. It is carefully extracted from the resin of the Boswellia carterii tree by making small incisions in the bark.
The extracted milky-white resin then dries into an amber or orange-brown teardrop. Frankincense essential oil’s intrinsic value is based on its broad uses and benefits, which date back to early Egyptian accounts; that value remains today, as Frankincense continues to be highly sought after, studied, and employed by health-conscious consumers and practitioners worldwide.
ORIGIN/EXTRACTION PROCESS This botanical is grown and harvested in Somalia and was extracted by steam distillation
Boswellia carterii essential oil has a fresh, warm and terpene top note with a rich, sweet balsamic undertone.
When inhaled, it sends messages to the brain’s limbic system, which controls functions such as emotion, behavior, motivation and long-term memory; in other words, Frankincense oil can be used to ease stress and enhance your mood. It is also used to nourish skin because of its natural anti-aging and cell-nourishing properties.
