FRANKINCENSE ESSENTIAL OIL

Quick Overview

frankincenseThe Boswellia carteri from Somalia is the most widely researched for the medicinal actions of Frankincense, with an uplifting woody and citrusy aroma.

Botanical Name: Boswellia carteri

Also known as Olibanum, the Frankincense tree looks to be more of a handsome shrub: It's many knurled branches rarely reach more than 22 feet in height and are topped with abundant slender leaves. A native species to northern Africa, it is capable of growing in some of the worlds most arid, parched regions. It is the sap of this tree that holds profound medicinal properties. To extract it, the bark is pierced with a knife (known traditionally as a 'mingaf') and a milky-white oleoresin is in small amounts to ensure the tree is not harmed (Myrrh is also harvested this way).

Known as "liquid pearls from the tree of life", the resin forms droplets that harden into the walnut-sized orange-brown gum known as Frankincense. The English name of this natural incense is derived from the medieval French 'franc', meaning 'pure' or 'free', and from the Latin 'incensium', meaning 'to smoke'.

About the Oil


Distilled using carbon dioxide. This means that the resin has never been exposed to high temperatures in the extraction process; it is instead immersed in liquid carbon dioxide that evaporates when the process is complete. The CO2 distillation process draws larger molecules into the oil than is possible using steam distillation, allowing all medicinal properties of the sacred resin to remain present in the distilled essential oil.

Aromatherapy Notes

This Frankincense oil has a fresh lemon-like top note with a gentle green, herbaceous middle note and deep, warm, rich balsamic undertones.


Traditional Uses

Resins and their oils have always been associated with fumigation and purification. Hence why Frankincense essential oil was first used as incense in India, China and the Catholic churches of Europe and North America. The spirit of the sacred and of meditation have surrounded Frankincense for ages; allowing the spirit, as it's smoke does, to rise to the heavens.

Ancient Egyptian women would char frankincense resin (called kohl) and use it to blacken their eyelids and outline their eyes

The ancient cultures of Egypt, Persia, Israel, Rome and Greece often prescribed Frankincense oil for syphilis, rheumatism, respiratory and urinary-tract infections, skin diseases and digestive complaints.
