Our Frankincense serrata essential oil is being discontinued in favor of this extraordinary Frankincense serrata CO2.  This Frankincense serrata Co2, produced by supercritial Co2 Select  extraction, originates from wildcrafted Indian Boswellia serrata resin and expertly artisan produced in India.  It has a semi-opaque clear to light yellow appearance.  This Co2 Select extraction process captures a range of chemical constituents not present in steam distilled essential oil, such as Incensole (7.9%), and Serratol (47.4%), which gives it a smoother, more floral aroma that eloquently displays an olfactory trio of citrus, balsamic, and spicy notes. At first whiff, one will experience why this superior specimen of Frankincense serrata was love at first scent. 

Also interesting are the benefits of Serratol identified at 47.5% in our current batch.  What is Serratol and why is this constituent important?  In a scholarly publication Complete Structural Assignment of Serratol, a Cembrane-Type Diterpene from Boswellia serrata, and Evaluation of Its Antiprotozoal Activity, "Serratol was tested for in vitro activity against four protozoan human pathogens, namely, Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense (East African Human Trypanosomiasis, sleeping sickness), T. cruzi (Chagas' disease), Leishmania donovani (Kala-Azar), and Plasmodium falciparum (Tropical Malaria). It was found active against T. brucei and P. falciparum."

Frankincense serrata CO2 acts an excellent base for incense and fragrance blends in natural perfumery, due to its floral nuance.  It rounds out the sweetness of citrus notes, particular Orange, without being overpowering. For spices and woods, it adds a flair of elegance to oriental perfumes, in both masculine and unisex formulas. The possibilities are endless in natural fragrances — just let your creative juices flow!

Because of the non-heated CO2 Select extraction method, this Frankincense serrata exudes a living vibrational energy.  Excellent for spiritual and meditation purposes, it calms the mind and reduces stress to connect to oneself. It also purifies the air, assists in wound repair, and has been found useful with those having conditions of arthritis and rheumatism. It is referred in Ayurvedic medicine as “dhoop”, or in India as “Salai”.
