Frankincense Sacra essential oil (wildcrafted)

Product Number: FrankSac
Review this item Review this item
Latin Name:Boswellia sacra

There are over a dozen different varieties of Frankincense trees in the Boswellia family, however there are four main species commonly found on the market: Boswellia Carterii, Boswellia Frereana, Boswellia Sacra and Boswellia Serrata. The variances might seem subtle at first- but there are some significant geographic and chemical differences between the four!

B.Carterii is cultivated and harvested specifically in Somalia, B.Serrata is from India, while B. Frereana and B. Sacra is from Dhofar, Oman! These different environments impact the percentages of chemicals that make up each essential oil, resulting in different indications. B.Carterii is the essential oil most often tested and used in studies, which makes it the first choice for Aromatherapeutical purposes.

The scent profile of Boswellia Sacra is very coniferous, penetrating and citrus-y. Due to its higher levels of Pinene, it has a tendency to smell more strongly of sap and forests. It has an odor intensity of 7 and is considered a base note and a fixative. It has a well-documented status as the most sought-after and desirable type of Frankincense.

The chemical makeup of the Frankincense chemo-type Sacra indicates it is excellent for respiratory complaints. Use it specifically for situations when the bronchioles contract too much, or as an expectorant. It is also excellent for joint pain, muscle inflammation, sports injuries and digestive issues. Use at a maximum 5% dilution for localized massage to effectively manage pain.

The emotional applications for Sacra are also very important to mention, for it has a rich history of spiritual use. Diffuse during meditation sessions or before beginning a class of yoga to heighten inner focus and vision.

Contraindications: The high levels of Terpenes might irritate the skin if used undiluted. Avoid use in pregnancy or on children below the age of 7. GRAS, considered non-toxic and non-sensitizing.
