Boswellia Carterii (Frankincense) Oil

Frankincense is an aromatic resin obtained from trees of the genus Boswellia, including Boswellia carterii. Most of the world's production of Frankincense comes from Somalia and adjacent countries. Trees are ‘tapped’ by making incisions in the bark to draw out the resin. The hardened resin ‘tears’ can then be steam distilled to produce the essential oil. The English word is derived from old French 'franc encens' meaning ‘high quality incense’. Amongst other things, Frankincense oil is used in perfumes and ceremonial incense.
