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 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.

Good for dizzyness
This has worked well for some mild dizzyness that came on with a cold and hasn't gone away. I also tried out the other Frankincesne carterii, but that didn't seem to work for it. I've also used Sacred Frankincense in a facial blend.

I love rmo's sacred frankincense. Expensive but worth it.
Sacred frackincense is an oil I can't live without. I use it daily as part of my skincare regimen with lavender eo, evening primrose oil and Argan oil for anti aging skin care. I have noticed a significant difference under my eyes. I also purchased the sacred immune strength which I use in my diffuser necklace. The compliments are never ending.

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.
Are these oils able to be taken orally like young living?
A shopper on Jul 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There are different schools of thought on using ESOs internally. RMO prints the batch # on the bottom of each of their bottles so you may read the GC/MS testing report. One group say absolutely never ingest ESOs. Another says go ahead, whatev...they're plants. The last group, to which I adhere, say "It depends...on the purity of the oil, the condition being treated & the health of the person". Never take synthetic, adulterated or untested oils w no GC/MS report. Only use "therapeutic grade"or "certified organic" essential oils. Bear in mind, some oils should Never be taken internally, like Wintergreen. Some oils should never be used on pregnant women or children. Alot of oils are foods we eat all the time like Oregano & Rosemary. But you can't take Oregano oil for extended periods as it's hard on your liver & Rosemary can elevate blood pressure so ppl w bp issues (or epilepsy!) should not use it. The bottom line is do your research & talk to ppl you know who are knowledgeable. There are many excellent resource books out there & courses to take. Some oils easily cross the blood/brain barrier which babies don't develope until they're 18 months old so personally, I would never use them on infants younger than 18 mos & not topically Or internally until they're even older. You could diffuse some oils at a distance from children between 2-5. These are medicines made from plants & should be considered thusly.
What is the difference in this Frankincense oil and the other Frankincense oils that you offer?
