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.

Thanks Neal s Yard once again for coming up with just what I wanted, pure, most desired and best quality that actually works as well as affordable. Frankincense saved me from so much pain this time in my teeth and arch. I have recomended it to 2 other people and they benefited greatly!!! Just had feedback from a friend who was sick fatigued and not even able to eat for 12 days; she started using the oil and last night amd today managed her first meal. She called this oilLifegiving!!! Thank you God bless You!!...


Hi, I've bought a bottle of Frankincense toner during my visit to London. Loved it and would like to purchase the EO as well. Can I know when will it be back in stock? Thank you...

Cant believe it worked!!


Great for headaches

I suffer from bad tension headaches and have found that frankincense mixed with grapeseed oil massaged from one temple across the forehead to the other temple really, really helps. Gorgeous smell and very relaxing, very pleased.

Sacred Frankincense -great quality!!

For those who love Frankincense (I'm one of those) this is actually Sacred Frankincense (Bosvelia Sacra as it says on the label). I am really puzzled how Neal's Yard miss to highlight that.There are 4 different types of Frankincense and they all have a different action.The sacred one is the one that goes deeper as a therapeutic substance due to its chemicals.I have a bottle of Sacred Frankincense 5ml from Young Living that smells and acts very very close to this one.The Young Living 5ml bottle cost £39 distributor price .(If you look around for great quality oils you will find that the price of this specific Frankincense its quite high ) I hardly can find any difference between YL and Neal's Yard and I can tell that my nose and senses are quite trained...So GREAT BUY.It is a gift from a very special friend and I do love it.I will get more cause its used on daily basis.Thanks Neal Yard for bringing it.....and do something so Its more visible what is in the bottle.!
