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.

Frankincense Serrata
I love doTerra's Frankincense and was curious how I'd like RMO's Frankincense Serrata. I LOVE it! The fragrance is what I was expecting and a little more gentle and friendly somehow. I use it in my "clearssing" products, these are products I use in a special ceremony I do that is a blessing, clearing and prayer. I use the Frankincense Serrata for not only its lovely aroma but because it has detoxifying and purifying properties.

unbelievable quality
Love this oil. I use in diffuser, as part of a face serum, and to calm my mood. Here's what is unbelievable: I placed about 6 or 7 drops onto a cotton pad and placed it into a small jar with a lid for ,my purse. When feeling stressed, I open the jar wherever I am and inhale the amazing scent to calm me. After 3 weeks, it is still strong and effective. Will buy again

So useful!
I can't compare this to any other brand because it is the first time I have bought it, but it is such a useful oil. I like to make my own blends for different needs, and I find frankincense being suggested for so many different ailments. It has a very earthy, warm scent. I really recommend it.

I wasn't expecting this high of quality for the price. Young Living and Doterra charge $100. I got out of habit of using Frankincense daily. But I can tell when I use it.

For a burn
I burned my hand and fingers while cooking. It looked like it was going to be bad, blistering white within just a minute or so. I put several drops of Frankincense on the five different blisters and also soaked a paper towel in aloe vera gel. I kept that on the burn for about an hour or two. it hurt very bad, especially if I took this compress off. After I removed the compress (2 hours later) it didn't hurt much at all. The burn blisters did not form. About five days later I had some skin peel off, but that was all. I won't be without some Frankincense in my first aide kit.

Great Product at a reasonable price!
I am so happy to find Frankincense at a price that doesn't make me afraid to use it! My past experience has been that with brands at 3 times the price. This product does just as good a job as those more expensive brands and I don't feel like I'm spilling gold dust every time I use it!

I have been using this for over a year. Used in my skin care products and receive a number of compliments on my skin. Used for healing on cuts resulting in quick healing with no stinging and little to almost no noticeable scarring. Also great when used as a pain reliever and anti-inflamatory. I will always have an extra bottle in my medicine cabinet.

I wanted to build a kid-safe (under age 10) immunity blend, but I also wanted this specific oil for other things, such as for diffusing, and finding other great uses. That's why I chose to go this route in making the immunity blend, rather than buying the kid one again. This way I also have the oil for other things!

I'm looking forward to trying this brand of frankincense, as it's much cheaper than other MLM brands but has many positive reviews. This oil is great to add to moisturizer to brighten the skin (seriously, it's like magic) but is also a great oil for all over cell-reproduction to be applied topically. Internal use is beneficial too but only under the supervision of a certified aromatherapist.

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.
