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

Beautiful fragrance

Beautiful fragrance oil which is also organic blends well with other essential oils used in combination for anxiety disorder


I started buying this essential oil 3 or 4 years ago when I saw that it was Boswellia Sacra. If I blend it with other oils I really like a mix including bergamot or orange at the moment. I feel that this oil adds a touch of luxury to everything and I find it calming yet uplifting.


Thanks Neal s Yard once again for coming up with just what I wanted, pure, most desired and best quality that actually works as well as affordable. Frankincense saved me from so much pain this time in my teeth and arch. I have recomended it to 2 other people and they benefited greatly!!! Just had feedback from a friend who was sick fatigued and not even able to eat for 12 days; she started using the oil and last night amd today managed her first meal. She called this oilLifegiving!!! Thank you God bless You!!
