Why not just Frankincense? Well, until Young Living's effort to make Sacred Frankincense available to the world, you would not have been able to take a whiff of it unless you were a Saudi Royal. It's that precious.
While they appear to be the same, these are two different oils. Sacred Frankincense is extracted from Boswellia Sacra and is sourced by Young Living from Oman. On the other hand, regular Frankincense is derived from Boswellia carterii and is sourced from Somalia. You can say that your regular Frankincense just got an upgrade, and you will love it!
Aromatically, Sacred Frankincense has the same rich and earthy aroma that has made it popular in sacred practises since the biblical times. Out of every Frankincense, this is a far better superior choice when it comes to deeper meditation and heightening one's spiritual awareness.
Blends Well With: Wild Orange, Cypress, Sandalwood, Lemon, Lavender, Clary Sage, Ylang Ylang, Lime, Rose, and Geranium oil.
Sacred frankincense (Boswellia sacra) essential oil
Young Living sets the standard for essential oil purity and authenticity through their unique Seed to Seal process. Rigorous controls ensure that the essential oil single or blend you receive is exactly the way nature intended it.
Add 2-4 drops of essential oil per 100ml of water to your diffuser. Some oils may require 4-8 drops to be added.
Add 3-10 drops of essential oil to a personal inhaler to inhale as needed.
Essential oils should always be diluted before applying to the skin. Blend essential oil with coconut oil, almond oil or any other suitable carrier oil for massage.
Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:
Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.
Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.
Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
