Sustainably sourced:

In the heart of Oman, the calming aroma of burning frankincense has been treasured for centuries. Oman is home to the finest frankincense, Boswellia sacra. Because these sacred trees need protecting, we use only the finest, most sustainable sourced frankincense, expertly harvested using traditional techniques. The precious resin is sorted and then distilled to extract the essential oil, rich in fragrance and therapeutic properties.

Bath & Shower

The essential oil is inhaled through the aromatic steam, as well as being absorbed by the skin. For adults, add up to 5 drops in 2 tbsp bath oil, shower gel, or carrier oil.

This technique helps to clear your head and nose. For adults, add 4–6 drops to a bowl of steaming water, pace a towel over your head and breathe. Children over 2 years old, adults with sensitive skin and asthmatics should not inhale directly. Instead, place the bowl of hot water with added oils in the room nearby. Not suitable for children under two years old.

No more headaches

This oil smells lovely and when mixed with peppermint oil in a carrier oil has actually stopped the awful headaches that I've had for years. i apply to my temples and inhale it when I feel one coming on and it actually works for me. Very happy.

Beautiful scent

This is a subtle and unusual scent - really beautiful and very helpful for unwinding and getting from the head to the heart (I use it before bed for a lovely night's sleep!)


LOVE this smell. I've been using during pregnancy and will be in labour too.
