In Ayurvedic medicine, Indian Frankincense Resin (Boswellia Serrata), commonly referred to as "Dhoop", has been used for hundreds of years for treating arthritis, healing wounds, strengthening the female hormone system, and purifying the atmosphere from undesirable germs. In Indian culture, it is suggested that burning frankincense everyday in the house brings good health. 

Our certified organic Frankincense Essential Oil is of the Caterii variety, from Somaliland. Some say this variety is more desirable, being cleaner and fresher and having a smoother aroma.
