Frankincense, widely known as the anointing oil, has been used for centuries in religious practice. Written records depict the ancient Egyptians using this lavish essential oil in everything from perfume to incense to medicine, even grinding the resin into a powder called kohl, to make black eyeliner.
Frankincense trees grow wild throughout Northeast Africa. The essential oil is produced through steam distillation of the gum resin, which is collected from small cuts made in the tree’s bark. We get our essential oil from Somalia, by way of an African distiller who has been working with rural communities to establish crops specifically for this purpose.
Frankincense quiets the mind, soothes the soul, and supports focused attention and tranquility.
