Organically crafted, our Frankincense Oil is hydro-distilled from the wildcrafted resinous dried sap of the Boswellia serrata trees growing wild in the forests of India. With its warm, resinous, smooth, sweet-balsamic, complex aroma with a slight licorice-like undertone, Boswellia serrata is among the most rich and exquisite of the majestic frankincense varietals.

Frankincense essential oil is high in natural constituents belonging to the monoterpenes chemical family like alpha thujene, alpha-pinene, and limonene, lending it to being a powerful antiseptic, decongestant, and anti-inflammatory agent.
