Our organically crafted frankincense essential oil is sustainably produced from wildcrafted resin of the Boswellia carterii tree growing wild in the rural landscape of Somaliland. One of our favorite ways to use frankincense essential oil is in a raku diffuser, during a gentle yoga session, as it can usher tranquility into a space in a very thoughtful way.
This essential oil is on our sustainability watch list and we are so fortunate to be working with a producer who is a leader in the industry in terms of advocating for very strict harvesting regulations in order to make sure the population of Boswellia carterii trees are not destroyed either through illegal poaching or improper legal harvesting practices.
After our distiller and their team carefully wildcrafts this incredibly special resin, it is hydro- distilled into a gorgeous fresh, lemony, woodsy, piney essential oil that is often used to promote overall skin health, especially in the instance of working to heal scars or minor topical injuries. Frankincense carterii essential oil is widely used for a variety of other things such as helping reduce minor pain and inflammation related to headaches and general muscle tension. Emotionally and energetically, frankincense essential oil is so rich with potential applications. It can encourage emotional healing, support reflection and introspection, and bring peace and calm, especially during meditation.
