Frankincense Serrata (Indian) Essential Oil



Smooth, velvety and all around exquisite. This variety is commonly known as Olibanum and is considered to be the richest in scent and quality.  Harvested in India from the legendary Frankincense tree, its aroma contains very fresh lemon, citrus, and pine notes.  This species of Frankincense (there are 3 main species - Carterii, Serrata and Frereana) is thought to be the Frankincense referred to in the bible. It is prized for its therapeutic properties -powerfully uplifting and clarifying effects on the body and mind.

Scientific Name: Boswellia Serrata 

The high a-thujene contents of Indian Frankincense variety means the oil smells quite similar to Tea Tree - not to be mixed up with the sweeter Carterii.


Mainly used in vapour therapy, aromatherapy, massage, bath and skincare.
