This special Frankincense is sourced from the northern, arid lands of Kenya around Marsabit and Laisamis. Although the harvesting is tightly controlled and regulated, the industry is still developing. Even so, it is already providing a vital stream of income for impoverished communities who mainly rely on pastoralist work in areas prone to drought.

Boswellia neglecta is also unique in that the tree does not need to be injured to harvest the resin, it flows naturally from the trunk making this a truly sustainable product. 

Used ceremonially since ancient times for its elevating and expansive effects on the mind (so revered, it was gifted to the baby Jesus!), Frankincense oil remains highly valued to this day for its distinctive warm, spicy scent and profound effects on mind and body.

Nature/Essence – Expansive & Uplifting

A premium oil for mature skin and anti-aging formulations, Frankincense stimulates regeneration and healing to rejuvenate and tone the skin.

The opening effect of Frankincense is also felt in the respiratory system, helping to ease the breath and clear congestion.

Frankincense is thought to have a calming and opening effect on the mind, ideal during meditation or times of stress and anxiety when a tight, contracted state is common.

A great oil to diffuse during meditation, especially for those prone to an agitated mind.
