Frankincense Essential Oil is derived from oleo gum resins which function as the immune and defence support for the frankincense tree, and in its oil form, passes these same precious properties on to us.
The Frankincense tree is a scraggly but hardy tree which originates from Oman and the Middle East. This variety is popularly called “Maydi” in Somalia and known as The King of Frankincense.
