This premium Frankincense carterii essential oil has a resonating rich incense aroma with an impressive 48.81% a-pinene and 7.22% limonene level, as well as 7.90% octyl acetate and 3.82% beta caryophyllene. A superb Frankincense essential oil by an artisan proprietary distillation process in USA using hand sorted premium resin imported from Somalia. This Frankincense oil is a more concentrated version of typical Frankincense oil due to it being taken to the next level through a proprietary distillation process that allows the oil to contain more of its heavier constituents that originated in the resin. These heavier constituents don't carry over in traditional distillation processes. The artisan distillation method results in a deeper, richer, and longer lasting (tenacious) aroma. Because the heavier constituents are present in this premium oil it is not recommended for diffusing.
This magnificent Frankincense oil may be used to bring calm to the mind, dispel anxiety, increase enlightenment and meditation. Frankincense carterii is a revered ingredient for creating ceremonial incense in India, China, many parts of SE Asia and also used in the Western hemisphere by the Catholic Church.
