Frankincense (Boswellia serrata) Essential Oil


This variety of frankincense is from India and is lighter and more floral than our African variety. The soil and growing conditions in India make for a delightfully airy frankincense with notes of citrus and flowers. An alluring resinous middle note for perfumery. Frankincense resin has a long and amazing history traditionally used as incense and synonymous with spiritual ritual. A bright and uplifting anointing oil and compliments yoga and meditations.

In aromatherapy, frankincense serrata is particularly effective for treating conditions cause by inflammation. Traditionally used for painful joints and arthritis, the soothing and transcendental qualities of Frankincense will resolve a myriad of sore situations. For a blend that will help promote clear breathing, add 6 drops Frankincense Serrata, 4 drops Eucalyptus radiata, 2 drop Rosemary, and 2 drop Spruce or Fir Needle to a diffuser or nebulizer.
