Frankincense is liquid pearls from the tree of life. Our frankincense essential oil comes from Somaliland where the highest quality of gums whose origins lie in the most ancient plantations rooted in antiquity: The Dhallo Valley, heart of frankincense’s fatherland. Our unique distiller specializes in the hydro-distillation of the fresh oleo-gum resins of Frankincense. This is very rare to have frankincense distilled with material from the fresh harvest – this creates a rich frankincense oil with a wide range of incredible top notes and heart notes. 

Our distiller describes his first visit to the ancient grove: “I was standing on the edge of the escarpment over-looking the Gulf coastline and the ancient groves of frankincense trees, Boswellia carterii. As we ascended the pass we entered into the ancient groves of frankincense trees that had been owned and harvested tribally for millennia. Thousands, of the Frankincense carterii variety with their bulbous-based trunks grow out of solid conglomerates. With their flaking and thick stems, I thought I was he standing in a perfumed garden of delights and that it was probably the very garden-grove that yielded the gum that became a gift of the Magi for the baby Jesus”.

Frankincense essential oil is a fortifying tonic that been used reverently for thousands of years for religious and ceremonial purposes as well as ablutions to beautify the body. Cross-culturally and trans-historically, the aroma of frankincense is “life”. Fusions of frankincense with oil have anointed newborns, meditating monks, third-eye chakras, yogis and shamans. Consecrating chrisms of Frankincense have deepened and revitalized the doors of perception, the breath of reception, and blessed many inceptions.

Ancient Egypt used Frankincense in rejuvenating masks, cosmetics, and perfume and chewed the resin as breath freshening gum. In skin care, frankincense oil reveals its balsamic nature through its miraculous redness relaxing and smoothing fine lines. It nourishes dry and prematurely aging skin.
