Essential Facts

Notes & Use

What Stillpoint "Nose"

Boswellia Carterii (Frankincense) Essential oil starts with specifically sourced oleo gum resin which is then hydro-distilled in small batches resulting in one of the the most exquisite frankincenses that we've experienced.  This particular frankincense comes from Somalialand and is certified organic.

We offer five different Frankincense essential oils:  

Frankincense essential oils and abstracts are extracted from Frankincense resin.  The resins such as frankincense are known as sacred substances among many ancient and modern cultures.  To us, frankincense is a representation of light in an energetic manner.  Frankincense trees grow in regions of the world that are extremely dry and experience intense sunlight. Frankincense is harvested from Somalia or Oman.

The way Frankincense is harvested is the Frankincense is tapped from Boswellia trees by slashing the bark (which is called striping)  and allowing the resin to bleed out and harden. The resin then hardens and forms what is referred to as tears.  The tears are the blood of the frankincense tree.  The ancients refer to these tears as crystallized drops of sunlight.

Frankincense is wonderful for protection and cleansing of the auric (energetic) field.  It is protective, purifying, and grounding all at the same time which is why it is wonderful for meditation and sacred ceremonies.  On the physical level frankincense essential oil is very effective for headaches when combined with Palo Santo and Peppermint essential oils.  It is a great respiratory aid and also effective for skin and scarring.

Traditional Use of Frankincense carterii

There are several species and varieties of Frankincense trees, each producing a slightly different type of resin and essential oil. Differences in soil and climate create even more diversity of the resin, even within the same species.

In general all Frankincense essential oils have many, many benefits to offer.

It is wonderful for the skin. This essential oil is both cicatrisant and cytophylactic.  It is skin healing and effective on boils, acne and scarring on the skin as well as to assist stretch marks to fade. Being cytophlactic, it promotes the regeneration of healthy cells and keeps the existing cells and tissues healthy.  Also effective as an antiseptic on wounds and cuts. Try using it in a facial cream for wrinkles too.

Great for digestive issues.  Frankincense speeds up the secretion of digestive juices and facilitates peristaltic motion.  It is also a carminative giving relief from gas and indigestion.

Frankincense is a powerful expectorant and very effective for respiratory issues such as colds, flu, asthma, and other lung issues.  Relieves bronchitis and congestion.


Did you know that the sap from the frankncence tree that is rather milky is referred to by the Arabic community as "al lubin" the Arabiic work for Milk?  The term frankincense actually means true incensce and has its roots in Biblical times. 
The different species of Frankincense trees are found in:
  • Oman
  • Somalia
  • Kenya
  • India
  • Egypt
  • Ethiopia
  • Sudan
  • Yemen
Boswellia species are moderate-sized flowering plants. including both trees and shrubs, and are native to tropical regions of Africa and Asia. The distributions of the species are primarily associated with the tropics. The greatest diversity of species presently is in Africa and India.

Aroma-Chemistry of Frankincense carterii

Frankincense essential oil is high in monoterpenes. In general monoterpene rich oils are mild antiseptics, decongestants for the respiratory and the muscular system (depends on the specific monoterpene).  They are also rubefacients and many monoterpene rich oils provide an analgesic effect where muscle pain and stiffness are present, this particular monoterpene oil is anti inflammatory,  have a mild antibacterial effect, all are highly lipophilic and therefore penetrate the tissues of the body easily aka penetration enhancers and they are effective airborne deodorizers and purifiers.

This batch of Boswellia carterii has approximately 50% alpha pinene and 15% delta limonene.  Alpha pinene is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, antispasmodic, antiviral and prevents bone loss.  While delta limonene activates white blood cells, is analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiobesity, antioxidant, antitumoral, antiulcerogenic, immunostimulant and a skin penetration enhancer.
