Please note that essential oils, particularly those that are citrus based, can corrode diffusers over time. Damage caused in this way is not covered by your manufacturer’s warranty. We advise you to empty and rinse the water tank of your diffuser and wipe it dry with a clean cloth every time you use a different type of essential oil.

I began as a fan of NYR's Frankincense Body Cream & Lotion, which I found helped my mind stop racing before bedtime and ease stress. When I got my diffuser, I tried this EO in. Alone or blended with Mandarin or Bergamot, it is wonderful & beneficial! It's my favorite.
Just received this Somalian/ Kenyan Boswellia and I find it is so weak and unimpressive, I can only imagine the poor trees have been over tapped leaving them with little to offer. Overpriced and under par...Response from NYR on 15.11.16 'We’re sorry to hear that you are unhappy with the essential oil. Our frankincense essential oil is Boswellia carterii from Somalia. The Frankincense gum (or tears) require at least 3 months to crystallize properly before being distilled. Our supplier uses gum that is 3 to 6 months after harvest to ensure it has the required degree of consistency. Please contact us to discuss this further at firstname.lastname@example.org'
