Frankincense-sacra essential oil is slowly distilled from the resin of Frankincense trees which grow in the deep reaches of the southern Oman, an Arab country in the southeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula.
Frankincense-sacra essential oil exudes deep-warmth, sublime sweet-notes and balsamic, ancient earthiness. When diffused, it adds serenity, grounding and reflection. It is very supportive of meditation. Aromatherapists consider it to have the highest energetic resonance of all the Frankincense varietals.
This extra-precious essential oil enriches and softens stretched or stressed skin. Frankincense-sacra of antiquity has been favored for helping one address deeper emotional challenges that may manifest into physical issues. Its moisturizing effects are perfect for dry climates or undernourished skin types.
Frankincense essential oil is extracted from the resin harvested from Boswellia trees by slicing open the bark and allowing it to drip or ‘bleed’ out. This glistening resin then hardens into ‘tears’ which native residents call the ‘blood’ of the frankincense tree. The ritual gathering of Frankincense resin had gone on for many centuries and trees are revered and protected closely.
