Product Abstract: Frankincense originates from a small scraggly but hardy tree indigenous to the Middle East, which is small with abundant pinnacle leaves and white or pale pink flowers. The resin begins as a fragrant sticky milky-white liquid that flows from the trunk of the tree when cut. The dried tears are collected, and the resin is then distilled, producing the precious oil. The resin is known as olibanum, derived from the Arabic al-luban or ‘that which results from milking’, referring to the milky sap. It is used as incense, and has been traded for 5,000 years. Widely used in ancient Egypt, it was one of the ingredients used in the holy oil described in the Talmud. Frankincense was brought back to Europe by Frankish Crusaders (Frank-incense), and the oil is still highly prized today in the perfumery industry, and widely used in the manufacturing of skin-care products.
Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
Ashley A. –
Excellent quality! I use it in my massage oils with my clients, so I’ve tried most brands. I met the owner of Floris Naturals at the farmers market, and am I glad I did!
These oils are much more affordable and of excellent grade and quality. Thanks!!
Nastasha, the owner’s daughter I believe, taught us some mixtures to make with Frankincense for my breast scars (I had a masectomy).
I had used Frankincense in the past, and can tell you I genuinely prefer this one. Also got some coconut oil that was ?
Great customer service, great essential oils!
