This Co2 Select extraction of Frankincense frereana resin has a sparkling aroma that is vibrant and rich, with complex resinous, piney, and sweet citrus notes intertwined with a floral back note. Although hesitant to offer another Frankincense we couldn't resist making this one available for aromatherapy use because of its high level of incensole and incensyl acetate, known for relaxing and calming qualities. This Co2 also has merit for meditation, yoga and natural perfumery. Perfume artisans will adore how this Frankincense Co2 can lift and brighten wood, citrus and resinous bouquets.
Aromatherapy use of Frankincense frereana Co2, known as the "King of Frankincense" is highly recommended for reducing stress, anxiety and depression because of incensole and incensyl acetate. These two chemical compounds total 2.88% in this Co2 and are known for relaxing and calming qualities.
