Dr. Nick Notes

If you are being called to the finest frankincense on the planet, look no further.  A bold, humbling claim - this frankincense essence will truly impress you ~

Boswellia sacra, the Royal Frankincense extracted from Hojari Resins from Dhofar region in Oman is the finest frankincense on the planet and produces a superior quality extract.  When I first experienced this oil, I had noticed something different about the vibration and clarity of it's essence - the vitality from B. Sacra is unique from other batches / species of Boswellia.  Frankincense Sacra can really liven up a botanical perfume or therapeutic blend.  Being a flammable essence, Frankincense Sacra is a special treat to infuse directly onto palo santo sticks or incense and allow to saturate / dry into the material - when ignited, prepare for a whole new level of purity.

Olibanum (frankincense) offers a rich source of essential oil (5-10%) upon distillation ~ frankincense means “pure incense”. It’s been used for anti-arthritic, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic properties and constituents known as boswellic acids have recently found to have potential as an anti-cancer agent (1). Boswellic acid has a high molecular weight and is unlikely to distill into the EO in any noticeable quantity due to it's large size & high boiling point; some other extraction methods (ie. CO2 extraction) may have noticeable quantity of boswellic acids. Boswellic acids have anti-inflammatory activity and are capable of quelling immune system hyperactivity via multiple mechanisms (3).Frankincense oil has also been shown to inhibit acetylcholinesterase suggesting potential therapeutic benefit in Alzheimer’s disease (1). My assumption based on mechanism of action would be associated with the high levels of α-pinene of this oil.

Artisan Notes From Our Distillers!
1) Ryan: This essential oil is made from hojari frankincense from Oman, not the trees close to the sea, but from the mountains in Salalah.  I distill smaller amounts here in Indiana, at this point in time I continue to utilize other distillers for larger amounts while my distilling and sorting operation grows.
I would be happy to share my some of my experience with you and your community.  I have been selling resins and oil since 2012 and have learned a lot along the way.  I am now sorting the resins in the US, along with purchasing presorted resins, and distilling also.  I continue to keep in close contact with my larger suppliers of sacra essential oil for larger orders, while distilling my own sacra oil to meet my own companies demands.
I am still in the inception of a larger sorting operation, which ultimately lowers the cost of the resins and the international shipping, which in time will help me offer an even more competitive priced oil which is distilled right here in Indiana.  In the meantime, any business consideration from you would be greatly appreciated, as growing my wholesale clients will help me make a larger import operation possible.  Sales from customers like you, will help import more raw resins to be sorted, graded and distilled in Indiana.

2) Mr. Ashad: We are one of the few companies in Oman which was given a license to collect and distill the essential oil of sacra by the ministry of agriculture. Our resins are collected from the Dhofar region of Oman and we maintain a record from which area we collect them.We make sure that the trees are not over harvested and Oman is the only country in the world where frankincense is propagated and free trees are given for planting.

We use steam to distill our oil and carry out the distillation in stainless steel vessels. Our process is very slow and takes around thirteen hour to complete. The oil sent to you are from the Hojari resins and we shall send you the oil through our distribution company.  Boswellia sacra has been regarded as the king of frankincense because of its quality and aroma. Salalah where our distillery is based has been trading with frankincense for hundreds of years. The whole town smells of frankincense as every household burns the frankincense resins in the evening.

Which Frankincense Extract is right for me?

Essential Oil Wizardry offers four different species of Frankincense: Boswellia Carteri (CO2), Serrata (CO2), Boswellia Frereana, Boswellia Sacra.  Here's Dr. Nick's OVERSIMPLIFIED reflections on choosing the best Frankincense for you!

Carteri (CO2) - Our flagship, super affordable and amazing quality of Frankincense, CO2 Extracted providing a more full-spectrum experience of very clean, uplifting Frankincense.  This is my go-to general use Frankincense extract and probably the most versatile AND common frankincense species people recognize on the essential oil market.  Fresh, vitalizing and combines super well for therapeutic & aromatic purposes.

Serrata (CO2)
- Frankincense Serrata has the most clinical research associated with frankincense's anti-tumor properties.  Some people search for frankincense because they believe it will be an adjunctive for their cancer treatment.  While we cannot suggest Frankincense will cure or treat any disease, if I was searching for Frankincense to use as an adjunct to treatment, this would be Boswellia species I would choose as it has the most research papers studying the mechanism and evaluating the effectiveness of Frankincense's (Boswellia serrata) anti-tumor properties.  The scent is unique and ranges between soft earthy & sweet to slightly astringent and pickle-like ~ provides a unique ingredient for botanical perfumery!

- Frankincense Frereana flourishes on a higher elevation of the Somalian mountains and contains a unique terpene composition: the higher pinene, thujene and cymene content deliver a medicinal extract with a strong aromatic turpentine note.  For analgesic & anti-inflammatory properties, this is the superior option - the scent is much more medicinal and earthy/spice.  Great to have in the personal medicine cabinet!

- Royal Frankincense AKA Boswellia sacra produced by superior grade Frankincense tears of the Omani region - considered to produce the FINEST quality of Frankincense essential oil on the planet!  This has a very special vibration to the extract and is my preference for prayer, ceremony and more energetic formulations (ie. Third Eye).  This is my personal favorite Frankincense oil that we carry - The standard market price for a premium quality Boswellia Sacra is typically ~$70-80 / 15 mL which we are able to generously offer at a lower cost.  We are so grateful to have access to this precious resource!

    My absolute favorite frankincense, hands down. Been using it for years, for baths, daily anointing, homemade skincare, as well as ceremoniously and in private sessions. I can’t bring myself to buy a different one… This one just smells too perfect. Absolutely captivating. Like a hug from Heaven. I receive many compliments about it.
    Mixing it with Lavender Fine (Vera) from France is a particularly heavenly experience.

    Excellent. The smell is great. Just got it so I haven’t had a lot of time to use it. I trust this company and will buy again. The last frankincense I ordered from another company was literally twice the cost. Plus I received a thoughtful gift that I love and will purchase. Thank you!

    Best frankinscense oil I have ever experienced in my opinion. The smell is so intoxicating and it tastes amazing to add 1 drop of this with 1 drop of Dr Nick’s lemon oil on occasion to spice up your water 🙂 This oil blends well with almost every essential oil ever made! I love adding 1 drop in my diffuser with other oils. I love to anoint myself and wear on my 3rd eye wrists and put some right under my nose above my lips. This oil is really good for meditation. Also love to put a few drop oil into a stick of Palo Santo it soaks into the palo santo and makes one of the most heavenly incense I have ever smelled. One of my all time favorite pure essential oils out there. Highly recommended

    I bought this for a friend after I saw it was recommended during an Instagram live stream by the essential Oil wizardry. I bought a few of them but this one was my favorite. It smells great. You can fill the whole room up with it and not be overwhelmed. I recommend reading a little bit about it too becuase its a pretty special oil in how it’s made and it’s many uses

    This is by stretches and leaps the best frankincense oil I’ve ever encountered. I find myself using it respectfully and sparingly in my most magic potions, as it just FEELS sacred. I love it.
