Frankincense vs. Sacred Frankincense


Frankincense is considered a prized oil by many and won’t be without it their home.   If you’ve ever wondered how the Frankincense resin is obtained, watch this brief video.  Amazing!

So, what is the difference between these two?  The brief answer is that one is sourced from Somalia, the other from Oman.  But even though they are similar oils, their chemical makeup is, indeed, different.

frank vs sacred frank

FRANKINCENSE ~ Boswellia Carteri ~ Somalia
The name Frankincense is derived from the Medieval French word for “real incense”.  Frankincense was valued more than gold during ancient times, and only those with great wealth and abundance possessed it.

Frankincense can be used to lift moods and promote grounding.   Frankincense contains sesquiterpenes, which stimulate the limbic system of the brain (the center of memory and emotions) as well as the hypothalamus, pineal, and pituitary glands.  Also, Frankincense is wonderful to support skin and health.

SACRED FRANKINCENSE ~ Boswellia Sacra ~ Oman
YL Sacred Frankincense oil is the first and ONLY Omani frankincense available to those outside of Saudi royals or the privileged Oman. It can only be found in Oman.
After 15 years of research, many trips to Oman, and numerous meetings and negotiations with Omani officials, Gary Young (YL founder) was granted the first export permit in the history of Oman for the release and export of the oil.   He also received permission to build a Young Living distillery in the country and to export the resulting essential oil out of Oman.  Sacred Frankincense may provide a higher state of spiritual awareness
