Frankincense is mostly used in aromatherapy products as it produces a calming effect.  It's also useful for healthy skin, as it can reverse the signs of aging, help treat dry skin and can also reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars.  Some use it to stop wounds from bleeding and to speed up the healing of cuts and insect bites.  An interesting fact is that in Oman, the best frankincense is reserved for the sultan and is rarely shipped from the country.

The Frankincense Carterii essential oil is extracted from the oleoresin of the plant.

The essential oil is wild crafted certified. Meaning, the oil comes from plants that are not sprayed or farmed with any kind of chemicals or pesticides. The plants are wild, organic and native to their own ecosystem. The plants are harvested in a sustainable and ethical manner.

 [dropcap style=”font-size: 25px; color: #ff9900;”]M[/dropcap]ethod of Extraction

The Frankincense Carterii essential oil is extracted via Steam Distillation from the oleoresin of the plant.

The botanical material (Boswellia Carteri) is placed in a still and hot steam. The aromatic molecules from the plant material are released as the hot steam excretes out the oils kept within the plant material. The molecules of these precious and volatile oils escape the plant and evaporate into the steam.

The temperature of the steam is carefully controlled to ensure that the plant material and the essential oil are not burned but is hot enough for the extraction of the essential oils out of the plant.

The steam which contains the essential oil passes through a cooling system to condense the steam into a liquid. The liquid substance which contains both water and the essential oil are separated.
The essential oils are then stored in a dark and cool environment to maintain optimal potency levels and reduce oxidation.
