Omani Frankincense | Wild-harvested Essential Oil
Uplifting and delicately woody, balsamic with hints of orange peel, this pure Omani frankincense is unparalleled.
Distilled from high-grade Boswellia sacra frankincense resin, this outstanding oil is one of the most sought-after and precious ingredients in perfumery.
Frankincense has been an ancient remedy for millennia, while in aromatherapy, its ability to ground and soothe emotions is well documented. It’s a wonderful oil to quiet the mind, bringing clarity and calm to meditation and yoga practice, or when you are feeling overwhelmed or depleted.
