All types of Frankincense essential oil share similar properties; however, there are several differences that make each type of Frankincense unique.
Many people believe that Serrata and Carterii are the same types of Frankincense because the tree seeds are identical. While the two plants come from the same seed, the geographical area, and climate where the trees grow, when combined with the pH level of the soil and other growth factors, result in two very different species of the Boswellia tree. While the therapeutic properties are similar between the varieties of Frankincense, there is still great diversity in strength and potency between the different species.

Frankincense is my favorite oil. Neroli comes in second. I guess I have expensive taste. As we all know these two oils are expensive. I decided to try the Carterii as it is more cost effective, but still up there in price. And Rocky Mountain has some of the best prices for therapeutic grade oils. I am glad I bought it and am enjoying it. I find it works probably as well as the Sacred. But the scent, while pleasant, is not the exquisite scent you get with the Sacred Frankincense. Would I buy this again. Yes. And, next time I order Frankincense I'm just gong to splurge and get the 15 mil Sacred version.
