Frankincense Essential Oil

Frankincense essential oil is made using the steam distillation method, by steam distilling the dried sap, which is also called tears, from the Boswellia serata tree. To obtain the frankincense tears, the tree is slashed, and the resin from the tree flows out of the tree and hardens from the air. This dried resin is collected, and is then processed to turn into oil. Organic Pure Oil carries the best frankincense essential oil, as our products are made with the best ingredients. Use frankincense essential oil for skin care, aromatherapy, massages and more!

The best frankincense essential oil needs to be diluted before using directly on skin. This is because essential oils are very volatile and harsh on skin.

Once it is, apply the oil as a moisturizer or as a massage oil to loosen up tight muscles and promote relaxation with aromatherapy.
