The Oman Frankincense trees have had to adapt to harsh environments, including growing out of almost solid rock in the mountains of Oman. That helps them produce a superior therapeutic resin and essential oil. The oil is considered the most therapeutic of all the Frankincense species and is commonly called Sacred Frankincense.
While most of the properties are the same, here are the basic differences in our Frankincense oils:
1. India: Boswellia Serrata While it is 100% therapeutic, Frankincense from India has a lower therapeutic quality in comparison to the other countries. It is a great one to use in perfumes and colognes, and for skin care. Though it is GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe), it would be better to not ingest this oil.
2. Somalia: Boswellia carterii This has a higher therapeutic quality than India. This Frankincense is best used for skin care, preventative care, and for bigger medical issues.
3. Oman: Boswellia sacra This is the highest therapeutic quality Frankincense you can buy. It can be used for anything, but the best use is for healing the body. It is particularly good for helping treat serious medical issues including cancer, diabetes, etc.
History: The Boswellia sacra trees grow naturally in Oman and have been used medicinally for thousands of years. Frankincense has long been considered extremely valuable. The resin has historically been used as an incense for many religious ceremonies from the ancient Egyptians 5,000 years ago, through the Catholic church in more recent times. It also has a long history of use in skin care. It has been burned to clear the air in sick rooms. The Chinese used the gum to treat leprosy and tuberculosis.

Ways to use: You will need to blend with a carrier oil before using topically. A general guideline is 4-8 drops in ½ teaspoon of carrier oil for adult topical use. Once you have tried it, you will know if you need to blend more or less. A general guideline for blend rates for children can be found here:
Massage a few drops into your chest and shoulders to improve your immune system. Use a drop or two directly on wounds to help them heal faster. For help with epileptic seizures, massage a few drops into feet, particularly between the toes. Also massage into outer ears and apply to back of neck.
