In the heart of Oman, the calming aroma of burning frankincense has been treasured for centuries. Oman is home to the finest frankincense, Boswellia sacra. Because these sacred trees need protecting, we use only the finest, most sustainably sourced frankincense, expertly harvested using traditional techniques. The precious resin is sorted and then distilled to extract the essential oil, rich in fragrance and therapeutic properties.

Therapeutic Essential Oil

I have always loved the sweet yet woody aroma of Frankincense oil. Quality and efficacy can vary according to manufacturing process and extraction methods and that’s why I always go for NY essential oils due to their exceptional quality and efficacy. NY Frankincense oil is great for massage when diluted in a good quality carrier oil. Frankincense has a long history in health and wellbeing as well as being used in many ancient traditions and cultures. NY frankincense oil is wonderful quality.

Fantastic and you can definitely smell the difference between the quality of Neil's yard and nasty cheaper alternatives. Definitely will stay with Neil Yard. You pay for the Star you get.

It works

This is my second time to order Frankincense Organic Essential Oil, I love to add appropriate amount into the roseship oil as facial oil.

Cannot even smell a fragrance! The oil doesn’t diffuse well! Too thick and heavy!
