Certified Organics: This Certified Organic Oil is QAI Certified. The National Organic Program develops, implements, and administers national production, handling, and labeling standards for organic agricultural products. The QAI also accredits the certifying agents (foreign and domestic) who inspect organic production and handling operations to certify that they meet USDA standards.

Botanical Name: Boswellia serrata

Main Constituents:
a-Thujene: 60.2%

Plant Part: Resin

Origin: India

Processing Method: Steam Distilled

Description / Color / Consistency: A thin, colorless to pale yellow liquid.

Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: A base note with a medium aroma, Boswellia serrata has a warm and spicy, woody balsamic aroma that is distinct from Somalian/Middle Eastern Frankincense. Its pungent aroma is noticeably different and lacks the smokey notes of the Carterii variety.

Blends With: Basil, Bergamot, Cardamom, Cedarwood, Chamomile, Cinnamon Bark, Clary Sage, Coriander, Geranium, Myrrh and Vanilla.

Product Abstract: Frankincense originates from a small scraggly but hardy tree indigenous to the Middle East, which is small with abundant pinnacle leaves and white or pale pink flowers. The resin begins as a fragrant sticky milky-white liquid that flows from the trunk of the tree when cut. The dried tears are collected, and the resin is then distilled, producing the precious oil. The resin is known as olibanum, derived from the Arabic al-luban or 'that which results from milking', referring to the milky sap. It is used as incense, and has been traded for 5,000 years. Widely used in ancient Egypt, it was one of the ingredients used in the holy oil described in the Talmud. Frankincense was brought back to Europe by Frankish Crusaders (Frank-incense), and the oil is still highly prized today in the perfumery industry, and widely used in the manufacturing of skin-care products.

Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

This is one of the most lovely Frankincense oils I have ever used. I am so happy I purchase 1000ml of it as my clients rave about it.

I am skeptical about the frankincense oils I’ve received from NDA. They have all appeared cloudy which is a sign of oxidization. Essential oils are very dangerous when oxidized. I wouldn’t want to use this essential oil on the skin.

Even though I am just an EO hobbiest, I am really glad I purchased the 100ml size of this oil. It is so useful to use in so many blends, and even to apply directly to the skin (which you can do with so few oils!) People can't believe the price I paid for it - Frankincense is just one of those oils that is often sold at such a premium (doTerra for example). People seem to think that they are getting a better product from the MLMs because they pay more for them, but I think ND is great.

I'm a RMT of 20 years. This is a beautiful oil, love that it's organic. I've used it in conjunction with the sweet almond base oil, to treat clients. Also used it on my family and myself when not feeling up to par. The sent is delicate, very enjoyable oil Next time I buy, it will be in a larger quantity, sush a versatile oil.

Love this Organic Frankincense EO. One of the benefits i love the most is it gives you the "clarity of mind" so I never forget to add to my Mental Clarity Synergy Blend especially when my husband is working on his multiple projects. Glad I found you ND...

This frank is a very nice oil. I felt a headache coming on and I applied it to the back of my neck and up under my hairline and it did the trick... Headache went away. My daughter is also using it for warts on her hands... we haven't seen results yet, but we are hopeful.

What a great Frankincense! I used it in my bath and felt less stressed and more relaxed. It's got a wonderful scent that I will be using in a number of skin care products!

No 'heights' like cateri. But appealing in its own way. Is a humble pie worse than a gourmet tart? I say no. At first I was about to say, not as good as NDA's UAE frankincense but I won't say that. It is plainer but no less appealing because of it. A close second of the three I have tried from New Directions.

My first time trying but I will be buying again. I use a drop or two in my homemade face cream and it works well. If it's good enough for an Egyptian queen, it's good enough for me ;) The smell is a bit strong but I don't mind it

I always try to use Certified Organics where ever I can. When the price of the other available Frankincense from Egypt rose significantly I decided to give a half litre of this India Frankincense a try. The India source is harsher than the Egypt source. Over time I have found the therapeutic value when mixed with Bergamot less beneficial. Each must decide if the price versus the value is worth the difference. I have decided to use it less often and go back to the Egypt source.
