The Master Oil - Frankincense



Frankincense oil is often called the King of the essential oils. This is because it has so many unlimited uses. Below will be some information and uses for this favourite oil.


The Resin of the Boswellia Carterii, Frereana, Sacra is what is used to make Frankincense.

The Boswellia Sacra tree can produce a couple of pounds of resin per year and if the tree is properly cared for it can survive and live hundreds of years. This tree can also grow up to 8 metres tall. These trees are native to Ethiopia, Northern Somalia, South Western Oman and Southern Yemen. They mostly like to grow on rocky slopes and southern coastal mountains.

The resin is a sap-like substance with a high viscosity. The resin is extracted by making an incision or slashing the tree so that it then emits a large amount of resin which is then scraped off or collected as it drips to the ground. The tree is carefully scored or ‘bled’ to get to the resin and then the resin collected is delicately Steam distilled to get the highest quality of the essential oil extracted.
