Frankincense essential oil, also known as olibanum and boswellia, is a milky white sap that runs from the cut bark of Boswellia trees. It is allowed to harden for a few days before the teardrop-shaped resinous beads are scraped off the tree. The oil has a woody, spicy and slightly fruity aroma and is used in aromatherapy, wellness, and perfumery.

what else you should know

frankincense
essential oil

Originating from the arid climates of North Africa and Oman, frankincense essential oil begins life as a resin that oozes out of damaged bark. Ancient Egyptians used this resin as incense, a preservative in the embalming process, a perfume, a cosmetic ingredient and an offering to the gods.

Today, frankincense essential oil is used in aromatherapy and in perfumery. Due to the presence of anti-inflammatory monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes, the oil is also used topically to address various skin issues.
