Sustainably sourced

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.

  • Lemon Organic Essential Oil
  • Chamomile Roman Essential Oil

Frankincense Oil

I have used this oil as part of my nighttime routine for sometime, although I do use the Frankincense mask twice a week. The oil is wonderful as it is quickly absorbed and leaves my skin feeling nourished. Excellent product.

Very soothing

I have always found Neals Yard products to be of a consistently high quality. Their frankincense essential oil was purchased alongside an electric diffuser and, in conjunction with lavender and clary sage essential oils, proved to be very soothing to a friend immediately prior to, during and following a beteavement.

The Frankincense oil is luxurious and very soothing.

I have swollen legs and feet because of long term chemo treatment and the Frankincense oil mixed with and almond base oil makes a very soothing oil which I have used, along with the Frankincense firming body cream has kept my skin in lovely condition considering all it's been through. I wouldn't be without either of them now.
