Special Notes: From the Al Hojar mountains of Salalah Oman, we are proud to bring you wild harvested Hojari Frankincense.
The finest grade of Hojari Frankincense in the world. Cut from the saplings of the Boswellia sacra tree which grows in the Dhofar desert of Oman. 

We are excited to offer this exclusive grade reserved for the Sultan of Oman for an amazing price.  This is the Frankincense of kings! This is also likely the same Frankincense brought to Jesus as an infant by the wise men! 

It has a grounding aroma, and often used in meditation.  Frankincense has a rich woody, earthy scent with a deeply mysterious nuance, but this Sacred Frankincense also has a fruity note, which makes it much more appealing to those who do not find the aroma of Frankincense enjoyable.

Boswellia Sacra is often called Sacred Frankincense and is very difficult to obtain.  It is extremely high in sesquiterpenes and monoterpenes and can easily pass the blood/brain barrier. Our Sacred Frankincense is currently being used by doctors in several clinical trials.

The smell is royalty itself!  I've never been a fan of the scent of frankincense until now.  It's heavenly!!  Nothing else comes close. It is definitely my #1 favorite oil!

* Some companies will tell you that Boswellia sacra and Bosellia carterii are the same thing, but GC/MS testing proves otherwise.  The main differences (I wont list them all) are a-thujene (.6% carterii, 7.9% sacra), a-pinene (37.3% carterii, 68.2% sacra), limonene + B-phellandrene (14.4% carterii, 6.2% sacra) optical rotation of sacra +30.1' and carterii -13.3', Enantiomeric ration a-pinene sacra 8.24 and carterii .68
