Freshly hand-ground, whole, fair-trade Boswellia Sacra oleo-gum-resin from Oman is carefully and slowly infused in organic Avocado and organic Olive Oil. Hojari Frankincense is prized for its many healing properties, including anti-aging components such as Boswellic acid. While it is also consumed internally and burned as incense, it contains many therapeutic compounds that can be delivered through topical body oils.

Things to note:
*Boswellia Serrata, Boswellia Papyrifera, and Boswellia Sacra/Carterii, all share similar properties.
*Frankincense essential oil DOES NOT contain Boswellic acids or the compounds needed for many therapeutic uses that whole resins do contain.
*Frankincense is one of many ingredients in threat caused by massive irresponsible human consumption. It is classified as “near threatened”. Please consider only purchasing products that responsibly harvest it.
