Spirituality and nature are deeply intertwined. Frankincense-Frereana essential oil is both of the earth and of something deeper, something beyond human understanding.

Also commonly referred to as “Maydi,” Frankincense-Frereana essential oil is the “King of all Frankincense.” EG’s Frankincense- Frereana is powerful, effective and exceptionally pure. For thousands of years, spiritual leaders have used Frankincense-Frereana during worship and meditation. 

With an enchanting spicy, woody, balsamic aroma, Frankincense-Frereana has a multitude of desirable qualities. When diffused, it can refresh any space while establishing an air of peaceful reverence.  Frankincense-Frereana is one of the rare essential oils of antiquity, offering a glimpse into the ancient past.

A beautiful small tree or shrub with abundant pinnate leaves and white or pale pink flower, Frankincense yields a natural oleo gum resin that is collected by making incisions into the bark. The essential oil is collected from the resin through a steam distillation process.
