Frankincense + Resin Extract – Essential Oil University

Boswellia carterii

This Frankincense essential oil  is a powerful blend developed by Dr. Pappas of the Essential Oil University. This concentrated frankincense oil has been taken to the next level through a proprietary semi-cohabitation process, which allows the essential oil to absorb more of the oil soluble constituents of the frankincense resin. This process allows for the inclusion of some of the larger compounds with larger molecular weights that would not make the trip through steam distillation.  You have to smell to believe. Due to this extraction process, this oil is not recommended for diffusing. It is best used topically – can be included in creams and carrier oils for application to the full body or affected area. Very helpful in reducing inflammation and inflammatory illnesses.

This is the Frankincense Vital Oil that is produced by the special proprietary process invented by Dr. Robert Pappas of the Essential Oil University.  The oil has the more desired heavier components that cannot be accessed by traditional steam distillation so you will notice that the oil is a bit thicker and richer than a standard frankincense essential oil which means it cannot be used in a ultrasonic diffuser.
