Boswellia sacra - Oman - Wild Grown - GRAS
The Boswellia sacra trees grow naturally in Oman and have been used medicinally for thousands of years. The oil is considered the most therapeutic of all the frankincense species and is commonly called Sacred Frankincense.
When the trees are about nine years old, small cuts can be made to tap for resin. As the resin is exuded, it hardens and the tears are collected two or three times a year. Each year a tree will produce an average of one kilogram of resin which can be converted into about two 15ml bottles of pure essential oil.
Because of the variation in soil and climate, there are many differences in the quality of the resin and therefore the quality of the essential oil. The frankincense trees that have had to adapt to harsh environments, like growing out of almost solid rock in the mountains of Oman, produce a superior therapeutic resin and essential oil.
Through numerous hours of research and advances in technology, there has been a discovery on how to extract even greater healing properties from the Frankincense resin. This new patent pending distilling process uses both CO2 and Hydrodistillation in obtaining this essential oil.
