Botanical Name: Boswellia carteri

Main Constituents:
a-Pinene: 41.3%

Plant Part: Resin

Origin: Egypt

Processing Method: Steam Distilled

Description / Color / Consistency: A thin, clear, pale yellow to brown liquid.

Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: A base note with a medium aroma, Frankincense Essential Oil has a warm and spicy, woody odour, sometimes with a hint of citrus.

Blends With: Basil, Bergamot, Cardamom, Cedarwood, Chamomile, Cinnamon Bark, Clary Sage, Coriander, Geranium, Ginger, Myrrh and Vanilla.

Product Abstract: Frankincense originates from a small scraggly but hardy tree indigenous to the Middle East, which is small with abundant pinnacle leaves and white or pale pink flowers. The resin begins as a fragrant sticky milky-white liquid that flows from the trunk of the tree when cut. The dried tears are collected, and the resin is then distilled, producing the precious oil. The resin is known as olibanum, derived from the Arabic al-lubān or 'that which results from milking', referring to the milky sap. It is used as incense, and has been traded for 5,000 years. Widely used in ancient Egypt, it was one of the ingredients used in the holy oil described in the Talmud. Frankincense was brought back to Europe by Frankish Crusaders (Frank-incense), and the oil is still highly prized today in the perfumery industry, and widely used in the manufacturing of skin-care products.

Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

Very sad this oil is out of stock. Hoping it is available soon. This frankincense oil is by far the most superior of all the frankincense oils. The benefits of this oil are absolutely incredible.

The Egyptian is the best. Clean, pure, strong. Superb oil here!! There in the hot sun, in places nothing can survive - the scraggly trees grow. That magical combination of great heat, dirt, rocks and air - produces something here that is unbelievable. A touch of pine here and yet a smell that is unique. A scented forest from the desert. Amazing benefits from this oil. Fantastic!!

This is my favorite NDA frankincense. I have tried the boswellia frereana and the boswellia serrata, but this is the scent most customers associate with "true" frankincense, It is deep, rich, mysterious and great for opening up spiritually. So it is the top seller of all the frankincenses I bottle for resale, even though it is more expensive than the other options. I also use it in my chakra opening blends and various prepared salves, balms, etc. where it adds a lovely fragrance as well as all its therapeutic value. Will keep buying this as long as NDA sells it.

Absolutely LOVE this EO. Blended with lavender (south african), it's become a signature scent for me. I can't wear perfume because of many chemical allergies, but have no problems with these EO product. Thank you for carrying this!!

In order to evaluate the all the Frank available at NDA, I purchased 1/2 oz of each for comparison. Frankincense Egyptian is by far my favorite. That surprised me because I expected to prefer the organic. I diffuse this with vetiver and myrrh for a blend that can only be described as euphoric. A few drops of frank in my argan oil keeps my skin soft and clear. I won't be without this oil.

This is the traditional frankincense aroma that my customers tend to prefer. I have carried the less expensive Boswellia frereana, which some have liked (especially the price), but in general I find this one is more popular. Have just purchased the Indian frankincense so will see how that one compares.

I love this Frankincense from Egypt. It is the best smelling EO and my family enjoys the smell in my diffuser. I don't care for the one from Indian as much. I use this in my Face Balm as well with amazing results! New Directions Aromatics Rocks! :)

Very rich and deep, unlike some other more flowery Frankincense EO's I have tried/smelled. My customers love it in my Organic Lotions!

First time frankincense user, unlike anything i have ever smelt. It is very rich and smells like wisdom, much more pungent then the Indian variety. Quiet expensive though, great to try a small bottle i dont regret it.

This is the first frankincense I've ever tried but I love it!!! I use it when doing yoga to help me breathe in my diffuser. I love the scent but haven't used it in any of my products yet. It's pricey but I think well worth the investment.

I have both this & the Indian, and they are both wonderful. This one is a bit sweeter but they both are great for therapeutic purposes. I plan on keeping both in stock.

Divine smelling. For scented oils, this is the one I would use. For therapeutic uses, Indian is fine.

I have purchased this Frankincense several times & am never disappointed. The Boswellia carteri oil is the therapeutic form of the resin. When used in therapeutic blends & in perfumes the fragrance only improves w/ age. Even the oil itself improves, becomes sweeter, more smooth as it ages. ND has awesome service, great prices, wonderful variety, you can not go wrong.

This is absolutely the best scent and the best essential oil that I have ever used in my life. It is fit for a king -or even a god. I recommend it without reservation and suggest that you buy as much as you can afford because it goes fast!

Oh, my gosh! I LOVE this stuff. A friend told me to wear it when I'm around people with negative energy, so I tried it and was able to stay grounded. And the aroma is HEAVENLY. I must look so strange sniffing my wrists all day, but I just can't help it.

This Frankincence is divine. I have both this and the Frereana. This is a more complex scent; spicy, woody with a slight sweetness to it. I've used this in my Third Eye and Crown Chakra blends as well as in a facial toner. I love this frankincense.

I buy from NDA but got this from a friend who does as well. It is fabulous to say the least. I used it in my Neti pot while suffering from a severe Sinus Infection with Myrrh also and it helped so much! I'm currently working on becoming a LSH / Licensed Spiritual Healer. So if you are not familiar with using Theraputic Grade Oils in this manner you should consult a NA first. But NDA's oils are fabulous and wonderful to say the least. I use fragrance oils also just for scent and such and they are very nice. I do enjoy however diffusing the essential oils for theraputic reasons. Myrrh and frankincense both are antibacterial and antiviral soooooooo, they work great in soaps, baths when you are sick, in shampoo for scalp conditions etc. But once again if you are not familiarized in this area. Do as NDA suggests and see a NA first. These will not float across your skin in the tub and burn you. You for one only need a few drops at the most. make sure it is dispursed in the water. Oils that burn on contact are NOT theraputic grade. I've had this in my nose for heavens sake as well as my mouth with no ill effects. If not theraputic grade you would receive burns. Soooooooo, with that said. NDA rocks! And this smells fantastic!

This is the most fragrant Frankincense oil that i have come across. This is the hard to find, superior quality frankincense oil I have been looking for. Deep and resinous with spicy and woodsy hints. Great for respiratory complaints and skin problems. I also use this in meditation blends.

I have purchased both the Frereana and Egyptian. This Frankincense Egyptian grade is of superior quality than the Frereana. It has the true, rich elements of frankincense. It transports you to another world, its magical!
