Frankincense Essential Oil, extracted from the resin of the Boswellia carterii tree, boasts a rich, woody aroma with earthy and citrus undertones. The tree's history dates back to ancient times, used for incense in various cultures and even in Egyptian cosmetics. Enriched with boswellic acid derivatives, it finds application in meditation, aromatherapy, and skincare. The oil blends well with Myrrh, Lavender, Bergamot, Lemon, and Cedarwood. Exercise caution, conduct patch tests, and consult healthcare professionals when necessary. The technical details include steam distillation from the resin, a Middle Eastern and North African origin, and a pale yellow, thin consistency oil with a base aromatic note.
