Frankincense Varieties

Our Frankincense Essential Oils vary in price because each is a different variety of Frankincense. All three share similar beneficial properties, while the main difference lies in the strength and potency of the properties which are determined by their chemical constituents.

  • Frankincense, Carterii’s aroma is like the other varieties being balsamic, rich, warm, slightly spicy, sweet, and woody but also has a slightly citrusy top note.

  • Frankincense, Sacred’s aroma is like the other varieties being balsamic, rich, warm, slightly spicy, sweet, and woody with its sweet woodiness standing out most. Frankincense, Sacred is regarded as the most therapeutic and highly sought-after Frankincense oils in the world.

  • Frankincense Serrata’s aroma is like the other varieties being balsamic, rich, warm, slightly spicy, sweet, and woody but has more earthy notes.


Many believe Carterii and Serrata are the same because the seeds that are planted are identical. However, depending on the geographical area and climate in which they are grown, combined with the pH level of the soil and other growing factors, the resulting plant is strikingly different. Truly, two distinct species of Frankincense are born from the same seed. Because the therapeutic properties are similar, all three varieties of Frankincense that we provide allow for a diversity of strength and potency comfortable for varying price points.

Did a little research on this, and this is the less-expensive of the Frankincense types that have some scientific backing for their use other than they just smell nice. Love this - use a little with my face lotion at night, in the diffuser, mixed with other oils.

Melt oil and let cool. Add oils. Mix and let sit in a small glass jar for a day before using.
It is a great for keeping skin soft, smooth and glowing. It has eliminated and softened wrinkles for me. :-)

Terri K on Apr 17, 2017
I noticed some of the blended oils are diluted with coconut oil. Is the frankincense also diluted?
Sarah C on Jun 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, it is not diluted. It is not a "hot" oil, so no carrier oil is needed unless you are using on a child. You can click on the picture of the oil and the ingredients will come up in an easy to read window.
