A wonderfully unique oil this distillation of Boswellia carterii frankincense oil is from Somalia. It is produced in smaller batches and generally considered superior to most large batch varieties. 

The best location for growing and distilling frankincense is considered by many perfumers to be Oman, India though oil produced in Somalia from where the Roman Catholic Church buys most its stock is also considered of the finest quality.

The aroma of Frankincense is exotic, fresh, sweet, balsamic and resinous with a hint of spice. It’s enticing wood aroma is sensual and freeing.

Frankincense has been traded for over 5000 year. It is one of the sacred and holy oils used since ancient times when aromatic oils were traded like valuable commodities and considered as precious as gold.

Frankincense is “tapped” by slashing the bark of the thin and haggard looking, but robust trees. This process called striping allows the tree’s resin to bleed out and harden into tears. There are several species of frankincense trees used for distilling the oil.

Tapping is done two to three times a year with the final tap producing the best tears due to their higher aromatic chemical content. Generally, the more opaque the resin tears are the more superior the quality.

There is some concern that frankincense tree populations are in severe decline due in part from over harvesting, as well as other environmental factors.

Many of the characteristic properties of Frankincense oil are found in both the frereana and carterri species though frereana is most often preferred by perfumers.

Its remarkable ability to maintain its integrity in any blend has given Frankincense a reputation for bestowing this same stability of character to remain true to oneself to the one using its fragrance.

Spiritually and psycho-emotionally Frankincense is best known for it’s enduring emotional and spiritual support. It lends support to help you be strong and recover after grief and loss or post traumatic stress.

Frankincense is often used in religious ceremonies as a perfume oil and for anointing and consecrating the body for performing holy deeds. Thought to possess miraculous healing powers Frankincense has been reported to heal and cure every possible illness since ancient times.

 

In recent years the carterii variety has been the subject of much research for cancer.

Frankincense anti-humoral properties have become the subject of much study in recent years. At this time there are more than 10,000 articles in PubMed (free search engine accessing primarily the MEDLINE database of references and abstracts on life sciences and biomedical topics. The United States National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the National Institutes of Health maintains the database) on evidence supporting the use of essential oils for treating cancer. Some of the evidence gathered is related to frankincense and cancer.

Metaphysically cancer is related to low self worth and internalized and unresolved anger issues and an unwillingness to forgive and let go of the past. Frankincense is known for being the oil to help you, “let go and allow whatever happens to be okay.” Traditionally Frankincense has been used in many cultures for increasing cellular respiration, slowing down breathing out and heart rate, and releasing problems into God’s care. This is the purpose for which its used in many religious ceremonies.

An analgesic (pain reliever) and anti-inflammatory frankincense may be helpful for treating rheumatism and sports injuries.

Its expectorant and anti-catarrh action makes it useful for treating symptoms of asthma and bronchitis.

Its immune stimulant properties increases white blood cell (WBC) count and support a healthy immune function.

A natural diuretic Frankincense is also known to relieve digestive discomfort and flatulence.

Frankincense’s regulating properties may be helpful for balancing menstrual cycles and relieving pre-menstrual symptoms like irritability, headache and cramps.

Its characteristic effects of calming and rejuvenating make frankincense nourishing for all skin types. Its action to tone and balance the skin’s natural sebum production make it especially nourishing for oily and mature skin types.
