Indian Frankincense - Essential Oil
Frankincense by Attar Bazaar is a 100% natural steam-distilled Essential Oil. It has a fresh pine-lemon bouquet with delicate resinous and woody undertones. It is also spicy and somewhat earthy.
Our Frankincense Essential Oil is full-strength, not diluted or blended! Also known as Olibanum, it is an oleo-gum-resin that seeps from the Boswellia tree when the bark is cut. The Boswellia tree grows in Southern Arabia, India, and Northern Africa; mostly found growing on rocky hillsides and cliffs. Frankincense resin is distilled by steam or CO2 to extract its precious essential oil, which is used extensively in modern aromatherapy. It is used in cosmetics, soaps, and perfumes. Color: Colorless to pale yellow clear liquid. It has a grounding aroma, and often used in meditation. Avoid use during pregnancy.
Frankincense has been used since ancient times to awaken higher consciousness, and enhance spirituality, meditation and prayer.
The name "Frankincense" is widely known as an historic biblical ingredient, and to many as one of three gifts from the visiting Magi to the newborn Jesus.
As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted. Do not take internally. Keep away from children. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body.
