Frankincense originates from a small scraggly but hardy tree indigenous to the Middle East, which is small with abundant pinnacle leaves and white or pale pink flowers. The resin extracted from the trunk begins as milky-white sap which hardens into a gum resin and scraped off for steam-distillation.

Widely used in ancient Egypt, it was one of the ingredients used in the holy oil described in the Talmud.

Our particular variety of Frankincense oil is extremely popular due to its appealing warm aroma and perceived benefits in topical skincare formulations. In addition to personal-care applications, this popular essential oil is widely used throughout aromatherapy and enjoyed in at-home diffusers.

A base note with a medium aroma, this Frankincense Essential Oil has a warm and spicy, smokey and woody aroma.
