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

  • Frankincense, Serrata has a balsamic, rich, warm, slightly spicy, sweet, and woody aroma with more earthy notes. 
  • Frankincense, Serrata comes from the Boswellia serrata tree, which is native to much of India and North Africa. Because of its abundance in India, it is commonly referred to as Indian Frankincense. 
  • The Boswellia serrata tree produces a higher amount of resin, which is used to create the essential oil, than other types of the Boswellia tree. 
  • Frankincense, Serrata is high in alpha-thujene and has antimicrobial/bacterial properties, which makes it great for cleaning. 
  • Frankincense, Serrata is the oldest documented type of Frankincense 
Many people believe that Serrata and Carterri are the same type of Frankincense because the tree seeds are identical. While the two plants come from the same seed, the geographical and climate where the trees grow, when combined with the pH level of the soil and other growing factors, result in two very different species of the Boswellia tree. While the therapeutic properties are simliar between the varieties of Frankincense, there is still great diversity in strength and potency between the different species.

Loving this oil!
I just bought this oil and I already love it more than my more expensive Frankincense from another company. I like to diffuse it, and apply it topically with a carrier oil to my face.

What's the difference between the three frankincense?
Maria on Jul 16, 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.
Can it be consumed?
A shopper on Apr 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Essential oils are very potent and can be dangerous if not used correctly. We do not give recommendations for ingestion as the body can safely absorb essential oils by topical application or diffusion. All of our oils are 100% pure, natural, and authentic.

If you do choose to ingest the oils, we suggest consulting an Aromatherapist or trusted health professional for guidance. As a company we cannot provide dosing suggestions or directions on how to ingest if you choose to do so.
What are shipping costs?
