Frankincense, Sacred Essential Oil (Boswellia sacra) is also commonly known as Olibanum, Olibanum Tree Oil, and Sacred Frankincense. Frankincense, Sacred Essential Oil has a medium-strength balsamic, rich, warm, slightly spicy, sweet, and woody aroma presenting a base fragrance note.

Frankincense, Sacred Essential Oil is part of the Rocky Mountain Oils Skin Care and Wellness collections. This rare blend, when properly diluted with a carrier oil, may help improve the appearance of all skin types while toning and tightening the skin. The oil also may help fade the appearance of scars.

Frankincense, Sacred Essential Oil enhances deep meditation, working to balance emotions and lessening feelings of loneliness, frailty, and grief. Use the oil to help combat stressors.

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 oil 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. 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 for varying price points.

Unable to define the scent, however, I purchased it for the many therapeutic properties, not for fragrance!
I really haven't had any other frankincense to compare it to. Upon first opening the bottle, I couldn't detect a scent, even after a scant drop rubbed onto my wrist. I called RMO telling them there was no scent. I was told it was a very light, woodsy scent. The next day, I was able to detect the light fragrance. Not unpleasant, however, I don't care for the scent.

Instant pain relief. I've tried six other brands, all supposedly top ten, a few were more expensive. RMO is far superior to ANYTHING else. This is my "go-to" EO. Now I know what it's supposed to smell like too.

I know RMO can't legally answer this, but as customers, what has been your experience with Sacred Frankincense for spots on the face or skin?
safehavens.vc on Nov 28, 2017
Hi' I am thinking of switching over from Doterra... their Frankincense has been a staple in my monthly orders. Which of your versions is comparable to theirs? The sacred? Thank you
Amy A on May 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is hard to compare as we carry 3 different types separately. While all of our Frankincense oils share similar properties, all contain unique levels of potency. Sacred Frankincense is the most potent variety that we carry and is the most powerful known variety on the market. Sourced from Oman, where the climate and growing conditions nurture its strength and potency, Sacred Frankincense is one of our best-selling oils. Frankincense carterii follows Sacred Frankincense in potency and Frankincense serrata is the least potent of the three.

Because the therapeutic properties are the similar, choosing a variety of Frankincense depends on the strength of the oil you need as well as the price point you prefer. Thanks to the three varieties that we offer, all customers can enjoy the benefits of Frankincense without having to purchase the most expensive available.
Do any of you take the RMO internally? I have quite a bit but was told that you can only take Doterra or YL internally.
phyllis w on Feb 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I usually put a drop of this on crown of head daily as I have sinus issues. I also have put a drop on the pad of my thumb and rubbed it on the roof of my mouth. I have never had any issues using these two methods. I do think this is one of the best frankincense oils I have found - just as good ad YL and Do terra. I don't mix capsules or cook with these, but they have come out with some organic ones that I wouldn't hesitate to use internally. If you read the descriptions on this site, they do not recommend internal use. I think because of FDA repercussions. This is my favorite oil -- pricey as it is.
Do you need a carrier oil with this for the neck?
A shopper on Feb 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We recommend diluting the oils when applying topically. Our general dilution rate is 1-3 drops Essential Oil to half a TSP carrier oil.

Thanks!

I’ve found other reputable brands of Frankencense Sacred for much less $. Can you explain why the cost on this oil is so high?
A shopper on Apr 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Our Sacred Frankincense oil is sourced from ancient Frankincense trees in Oman, where the country's climate and agricultural conditions nurture the strength and potency of the oil. Our Sacred Frankincense is the most powerful known variety of Frankincense on the market.

Thanks!

Are your oils organic?
Paul L on Feb 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: All of our essential oils are 100% pure, natural, therapeutic and organically grown. They are GMO-Free, GC/MS and Pesticide tested. However, until now, we have not had government USDA Certified Organic oils. Certifying essential oils as organic is a very long, expensive and extensive process. Here is a link to our certified Organic oils: https://www.rockymountainoils.com/organic-essential-oils/

Thanks! -RMO Team
Is this 100% pure?
Peggy F on Aug 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: All of our essential oils are 100% pure, natural and authentic. Please visit our Quality page for more information. https://www.rockymountainoils.com/quality
Your different varieties of Frankincense seem to be marketed towards different ailments. For instance, your website indicates that Sacred is for skin care and Carterii is best for sleep. On your Facebook you posted that Sacred was for skin, Carterii for muscles and joints, and Serrata for emotions. I understand that each level of your Frankincense has a different level of potency, but why would they target different ailments? I would think that they would work for the same issues, but with a different level of effectiveness. Is that not accurate? Please explain. :-)
Ashley C on Jan 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: All varieties of Frankincense essential oils do share similar properties and therapeutic functions. The difference is in the growing conditions and the regions they come from. All three varieties that we carry will smell different from each other as well as have different dominant constituents. This is due to a slight variance in chemical makeup brought on by the different growing conditions. Some examples to share would be that Frankincense Sacred is high in alpha-pinene. This is a great component for skin care. Then you have Frankincense Serrata, which is higher in alpha-thujene making it a better option for an uplifting mood. Because the therapeutic properties are similar, choosing a variety of Frankincense depends on the aroma, the dominant constituent of the oil as well as the price point you prefer.

We hope this helps!

Thanks,

I would like to use this oil mixed with carrier oil for my face. What is a good ratio for best results and safe amount?
A shopper on Oct 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I use a 4 oz glass bottle and mix olive and melted coconut oil - then I add 10 - 20 drops of Frankincense, as well as some vitamin E oil and whatever else I have...maybe a bit of melted cocoa butter or a couple drops of lavender (any oil you like for your skin type). I keep this in the shower and put about 15 drops on my face - try not to wash off - pat dry and it soaks right in. I have dry skin and this doesn't interfere with my day cream or makeup routine.
Are these oils able to be taken orally like young living?
A shopper on Jul 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We feel that essential oils are very potent and can be dangerous if not used correctly.

At this time, we do not recommend ingestion because the body can safely absorb essential oils by topical application or diffusion. However, all of our oils are 100% pure, natural, and authentic. They are of the quality to use them internally with wisdom and safety.

If you do choose to ingest the oils, we suggest consulting an Aromatherapist or trusted health professional for guidance. As a company we can not provide dosing suggestions or directions on how to ingest if you choose to do so.
Pricing question: if I order every three months and get 5% off, is that 5% off of the regular price of $85 or 5% off of today's price of $60?
Melissa L on Nov 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Any discounts received from subscription orders will be taken off of the retail price or whatever price is available on the website at the time of the automatic order.

Thanks!
