Often associated with sacred temples and churches throughout the world, frankincense has been used and traded as medicine, fragrance, and in ritual offering for thousands of years. What people often don't realize is that there are many different species of frankincense that occur across both Africa and Asia. They all belong to a genus of flowering plants known as Boswellia.
Our Limited Edition Frankincense essential oil is small-batch hydro-distilled in Seattle, WA by us, using our very own copper alembic still. This rare variety of frankincense (Boswellia dalzielii) is both fair trade and sustainable wild-harvested. It is the most western growing species of frankincense in the world and it is relatively unknown outside of its native home of Nigeria and Burkina Faso. This exceptional variety is just as glorious as our better known B. sacra which is most often used in churches. It is sweet and warm with a subtle eucalyptus note which is said to be unique to this species.
