Sacred frankincense essential oil is distilled from Boswellia sacra trees at the Young Living distillery in Oman. This new variety of frankincense is a complement to Boswellia carteri— Young Living’s traditional frankincense—and is ideal for special use when a deeper spiritual connection is desired. Omani frankincense is regarded as the world’s rarest, most sought-after aromatic in existence. After careful negotiations with Omani officials, Gary Young was granted permission to build a Young Living distillery in-country and to take the resulting essential oil out of Oman. Until this partnership, no Omani frankincense had ever left the country, unless directly purchased by Saudi royals. Omani frankincense is highly regarded as the frankincense of the ancients and the traditional spiritual oil of biblical times. Young Living’s sacred frankincense marks the first time any Westerners have been able to experience these unique, spiritual properties.
