The precious resin is sorted and then distilled to extract the essential oil, rich in fragrance and therapeutic properties.

Relaxing bedtimes

My daughter bought me a diffuser and now I use it every bedtime. I put in Frankincense organic essential oil. It is a beautifully scented oil and it relaxes me and so enables me to get to sleep better. I sometimes mix it with Neal’s yard bergamot essential oil. That is also a very lovely smell. I recommend the oils as I trust the quality of Neal’s Yard products.

Best frankinsence essential oil

After much research I came back to our own Neals Yard frankincense oil. It ticked all the boxes for me:organic,sourced from Oman,Neals yard I trust,good size,dark glass bottle.
I used it and it helped a lot over the years,from facial neuralgia from the tooth to calm the inflamation and pampering myself with my own face oil made with some added frankincense esseential oil and others like geranium and mint.
Lovely great quality product. Honestly priced. Avaliable in every NY shop and of course on line!

Top quality frankincense

Love this essential oil. Quality is very good and it is a very calming oil. It also helped when I fell and scraped my foot. When I rubbed it in, it eased the pain and took the inflammation down. I would definitely recommend this oil.
