Frankincense Carterii Essential Oil. Artisan distilled in-house.

This is a lovely Sweet and citrusy Frankincense essential oil that has had a few weeks to air and mature.

Harvested in the North Eastern Bari area of Somalia, it is believed that the position of these trees in relation to the mountains and the Indian Ocean contributes to the resin's unique scent.

It smells sweet of honey and amber with soft citrus notes. it has a delicate aura of Balsam Fir, (Christmas trees), rounding out the fragrance perfectly.

The aroma of both the essential oil and hydrosol is a lovely soft Amber/Honey with delicate hints of spice. It lacks the sharp edge one usually finds in commercial distillations of Frankincense Carterii. It is both relaxing and stimulating at the same time and a perfect product for aromatherapy, facial toners and other products.

This is a PURE & UNADULTERATED hydro distilled essential oil distilled by me in small batches. Nothing is added to it and nothing was taken from it.

Frankincense has been in the news regularly the past few years, due to the Boswellic acids found in the heavy resin portion of this oleo gum resin. Studies have shown these resin compounds cause apoptosis in various types of cancer cells without harming healthy cells. This is one of 3 types of Frankincense that are known to contain these compounds. The essential oils, however, can only contain trace amounts of Boswellic acids.

If you would like to utilize the Boswellic acids for their health benefits, please see my resin extracts and Oleo extracts/infusions which all contain Boswellic acids and other therapeutic compounds not found in the essential oil of Frankincense.

I didn't think I would be collecting varieties of frankincense, and yet here I am... another beautiful addition to the vault.

It's ok because the size of half of my pinkey finger and no label that shows which oil it is. Disappointed of receiving something so tiny like this, what can i do with it? It was a sample i just ordered. Those little sample perfumes you get in a magazine or something.

A true representation of the resin's character. Very nice to have a portable Carterii experience. Thanks again!
