Learn about Frankincense Oil

Frankincense is actually an aromatic resin obtained from the Boswellia trees by stripping the bark back and letting the resin to drip out and harden. The hardened streaks of resin are called tears. The dry resin is then steam distilled to obtain the essential oil.

There are five main species of the Boswellia that produce true Frankincense producing various grades depending on the time of harvesting. The resin is hand sorted for quality.

Most Frankincense comes from Somalia and India but also in Oman, Yemen and Western Africa. It has a trading history of more than 6000 years, used in many religious ceremonies, in perfumes, natural medicines and aromatherapy.

Botanical Name: Boswellia Carterii

A-pinene is known for its anti-inflammatory benefits for diseases like arthritis and multiple sclerosis. It can help with pain relief. A-pinene seems to be antimicrobial.
