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

  • Frankincense, Carterii has a balsamic, rich, slightly spicy, warm, sweet, and woody aroma with a slightly citrusy top note. 
  • Frankincense, Carterii comes from the Boswellia carterii tree, which is native to East Africa. 
  • Frankincense, Carterii is high in d-limonene, which is great for general muscles and joint pain relief. 
  • Frankincense, Carterii is the most well-known and studied type of Frankincense. 
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.

I’m delighted that I recently switched to RMOs. I have used 2 other brands of frankincense & each left me with mild burning. I have NO burning AT ALL with this brand & the scent is really clean & appealing. In addition, customer service is A+++....so glad I switched!

Oil is used on a disabled person to relieve back pain. It is a high quality oil that does not cause a skin rash as some other oils have done. Smells nice and does work.

In my research I read that scacra and carterri are essentially the same species. Insight? What to purchase?? Should I buy one for diffusing and another for body application?? Looking for peaceful aroma and healing properties
Monica M on Feb 7, 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. Frankincense, Carterii has a high d-limonene which is great for general pain relief of muscles and joints.

However, 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.

I noticed some of the blended oils are diluted with coconut oil. Is the frankincense also diluted?
