About: Frankincense, which translates to “royal incense,” has a balanced, fresh and resinous scent with woody undertones. Historically the oil was often used by royalty and spiritual leaders, and it can be found in many ancient texts and religious practices. It has been so widely used in world religions that it is also known as Frankincense sacra: ‘sacra’ meaning sacred.

This Frankincense essential oil is steam-distilled from the resin of Frankincense carterii. These dwarfed conifers trees grow in some of the world’s harshest conditions deep in the Somali deserts. To collect the sap, the harvesters make small cuts on the tree from which resin then drips. Over-harvesting can damage these precious trees, which is why Veriditas by Pranarom is committed to only using Frankincense that is sustainably harvested and organically grown.

Blending Recommendations: Frankincense has a resinous, bright, citrus aroma with lasting earthy undertones. This complex essential oil is a base to middle note and blends well with other oils both for therapeutic value and for its aroma. Frankincense is used for perfuming and appears in designer fragrances around the world.
