Our Favorite Way to Use Wild Frankincense Essential Oil
Place one drop on your thumb and place it on the roof of your mouth to help support your immune system.
Processing: Steam distilled from the resin of the Boswellia tree.
The best Frankincense comes from the Dhofar region of Oman, on the southern edge of the Arabian Peninsula. The Dhofar is a very rugged, sparsely inhabited desert. During the summer the monsoon from the Indian Ocean brings a lot of sub-tropical moisture.
The Frankincense grows naturally in dried river beds (wadis) and verdant valleys. The resin is a natural result of the wound healing response of the trees from the incision made in the bark. Tree tapping is carefully monitored by the government. The resins are collected by hand from different areas of the Dhofar region. The dust and bark are sifted from the resin and stored in sacks. The cleaned resins are steam distilled for 12 hours.
Even though the distillers wildcraft the resin, it is certified organic. After the monsoon (khareef season), new trees are propagated when the seeds from the flowers of the mother trees are blown by the wind to begin the cycle of growth anew. In order to promote Frankincense, the Omani government has given a license to a handful of companies to distill and export the genuine oil. The sacra is considered to be the superior species, producing a finer, fruitier aroma compared to the more balsamic carterii from Somalia. This is attributed to the rich oil and environmental conditions of the Dhofar region.
