Organic Frankincense Essential Oil

Boswellia carterii


Frankincense can be found in the Middle East and is native to the Red Sea region. Frankincense oil NZ is extracted from the tree with the botanical name Boswellia carteri.

Deep incisions are made in the tree trunk and the bark is peeled off in thin strips.

After numerous weeks, a milky juice comes out that hardens when it comes in direct contact with air. Frankincense used to be more valuable than gold during the life of Christ, and in the Middle East it is used as a holy anointing oil.

How is frankincense oil extracted?


Frankincense is extracted by steam distillation.

How can I benefit from frankincense essential oil?


Frankincense essential oil has been used for centuries for its various benefits. Here are some ways you can benefit from frankincense essential oil:


1. Relaxation and stress relief: Frankincense oil has a calming and soothing effect on the mind and body. You can add a few drops to a diffuser or vaporizer to create a peaceful and relaxing environment. Inhaling the aroma can help reduce stress, anxiety, and promote better sleep.


2. Skincare: Frankincense essential oil has astringent properties and can be beneficial for the skin. It may help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and blemishes. You can mix a few drops of frankincense oil with a carrier oil, such as jojoba oil or argan oil, and apply it to your skin. Remember to do a patch test before applying it to a larger area.


3. Respiratory support: Inhalation of frankincense oil may help alleviate respiratory issues such as coughs, congestion, and asthma. You can add a few drops to a bowl of hot water, cover your head with a towel, and inhale the steam for relief. Alternatively, you can use a diffuser or apply a diluted mixture to your chest.


4. Boosting immunity: Frankincense essential oil has been traditionally used to support the immune system. It has antimicrobial properties that may help protect against infections. Diffusing frankincense oil in your home or using it in a massage blend may help strengthen your immune system.


5. Meditation and spiritual practices: Frankincense has been valued for its spiritual and religious significance for centuries. It is commonly used in meditation practices to promote a sense of grounding, focus, and connection. Diffusing frankincense oil during meditation or applying a diluted mixture to the temples or wrists can enhance the experience.
