Frankincense Essential Oil

Caryn ChandlerGetting Started


Recognized from the Bible as one of the 3 gifts brought to Christ when he was born, Frankincense (scientific name Boswellia carteri) has been used for thousands of years.  This oil is devine and having it included in Young Living’s Premium Starter Kit is an absolute gift.  If you have never smelled pure, therapeutic grade Frankincense Oil this one may come as a surprise to you.  The calming aroma has provided a sense of centering for me.  Here’s a Tip:  Add 3 drops of Frankincense and 1 drop of Lavender to your diffuser to promote restful sleep.

Frankincense_Gary-in-Oman When you listen to Gary teaching on frankincense you  can sense his very special relationship to this farm, this  land and these people.  A three-generation family  business owned by farmer Hassan Saleh, the Young  Living Dubai and Somaliland partner farms provide  Young Living crucial Boswellia carterii and Boswellia  frereana. At the Somaliland  farm, frankincense resin is  collected and sent to the Dubai farm to be distilled.  Running six days a week distilling Frankincense essential oil exclusively for Young  Living, the Dubai farm has rebuilt their distillery to fully meet our  exacting Seed to Seal Standards.
