As I have said elsewhere, in our experience the CO2 extracts are closer to the aroma of the raw botanical than are the distilled oils. This Indian Frankincense Oil is a lovely aromatic specimen.

We have been asked about the boswellic acid content of our Frankincense CO2 extracts, since it is a well known fact that boswellic acid does not come through the process of distillation. Unfortunately, although the Boswellia serrata resin itself does contain boswellic acid, the CO2 extract contains less than 1%. Its contents are 80–85 % monoterpenes, alpha-thujene, alpha-pinene, sabinene, myrcene, p-cymene, limonene etc., sesquiterpenes, terpene alcohols and esters (incensol acetate) and less than 0.1 % boswellic acid.  For topical use, we recommend following standard essential oil dilution recommendations.

Safety: No contraindications. Avoid oxidation.

SHELF LIFE: Approximately 2 to 3 years after you open the bottle.  Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.

  • 5 Another lovely frankincense

    Posted by Tiffany from Virginia on 05/30/2018

    I can’t say I’ve ever met a high-quality frankincense I didn’t like. Even with all the variations between different types, it’s one of my favorite tree families. I had not come a CO2 prior to this, though. With the CO2 being closer to the original resin, I wanted to try it right away! It is definitely a different experience than the steam-distilled serrata I’m used to, but no less lovely. The aroma lingers a bit longer topically, as well (for me, at least).

    Definitely a worthy addition for any frankincense lover.
