Frankincense oil, the most precious gift

Until the day break, and the shadows flee away,
I will get me to the mountain of myrrh, and to the hills of frankincense.
~ Song of Solomon 4:6


Frankincense (Boswellia carterii) has been sought after since ancient times. The complex aroma of this oil can elevate many aspects of your life.

Frankincense essential oil has an earthy, uplifting aroma that’s perfect for grounding, spiritual connectedness and to refine your sense of purpose.

In addition to elevated spiritual experiences, the benefits of frankincense essential oil include maintaining radiant skin. In fact, many experts say that frankincense is the ideal oil to support well-being of every part of our bodies, from head to toe.


  • Frankincense essential oil is considered a holy oil in the Middle East, where it has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years and was one of the gifts given to Christ at his birth.
  •  Frankincense is mentioned in one of the oldest known scientific records, the Ebers papyrus, dating from the 16th century B.C.

Young Living distills its Frankincense oil from the resin of Boswellia carterii trees located in northern Africa near the Arabian peninsula.
