All types of Frankincense essential oil share similar properties; however, there are several differences that make each type of Frankincense unique.

  • Frankincense, Sacred has a balsamic, rich, woody, warm, sweet, and slightly spicy aroma with its sweet woodiness as the most pungent. 
  • Frankincense, Sacred is a rare essential oil, and many people consider it to be the most therapeutic and highly sought-after essential oil in the world. 
  • Frankincense, Sacred comes from the Boswellia sacra tree, which is only found in Oman. The Oman desert landscape is harsh and challenging with rocky slopes and chalky soil. Such conditions make it impossible for any other type of Boswellia tree to survive. This makes the type of resin from the Boswellia sacra tree rarer than the resin of its cousins. 
  • The resin from the Boswellia sacra tree that we use to create the essential oil is collected before it completely hardens. This keeps the resin, and the oil, in its purest form. 
  • Frankincense, Sacred contains 20% more alpha-pinene than other types of Frankincense. Alpha-pinene provides great therapeutic benefits for skin, oral health, the immune system, and the respiratory system.

This baby is like gold. I mix a drop into argan, or jojoba oil and use it all over my face and neck. It’s. Been a part of my weekly regimen for a few years now. It makes my skin so soft. I’m 39 and everyone thinks I’m in my 20s!

I took a few drops of the oil and added it to some Jojoba oil as my carrier. I experienced phenomenal relief from the pain I was having in my joints of my hands and ankles. I rub a few drops over the areas a couple times a day. GREAT relief!!

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?

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!

What is the difference in this Frankincense oil and the other Frankincense oils that you offer?
janiece c on Aug 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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.

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.

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/

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,

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.
Can any of these be taken internally? Thank you

Can anyone tell me the general shelf life of this oil? I store mine in a wooden essential oil box, out of the light and non-humid environment. Just wondering if oils go "bad" or if they just start to lose potency after a while? With the cost of this, I don't want to replace it if I don't have too...but I don't go through any of my oils very quickly. Thanks in advance for any help and clarification!
Alane M on Dec 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Great question! Our oils do not have an expiration date. Essential oils do not “go bad” in that they become rancid, but their therapeutic properties can lose potency. If kept in a cool (room temperature or cooler), dark place with the cap tightly sealed, all oils should maintain their therapeutic potency for about 3-8 years. However, citrus oils have a shorter time frame of 1-3 years. Some oils, such as Patchouli, Vetiver and Blue Tansy actually increase in potency.

I have heard frankincense can be helpful during/after labor/delivery... which version is recommended?
A shopper on Sep 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Great question! When used properly many essential oils can be safe for pregnant and nursing women, however, we always recommend talking with a trusted medical professional or aromatherapist before usage. Of the three varieties Frankincense Carterii is considered the safest when practicing the guidelines on our pregnancy blog post.
