Living Libations Scared Frankincense Essential Oil is a magnificent gift of the ancient Maggi. Exclusively grown in Oman, this strain of frankincense has its roots in over five millennia of human history. The Greeks, Romans, Arabs, and Egyptians used this type of frankincense for sacred ceremonies and burial rituals. King Tut was even buried with sacred frankincense!


Because it only grows in one part of the world, traders would travel thousands of miles to obtain the precious resin of the Boswellia sacra, which at one point in history was considered more valuable than gold. Even today in Oman, having sacred frankincense growing on your land is a sign that one is blessed and fortunate.


Recently the government of Oman opened up their frankincense reserves to the rest of the world for distillation. The essential oil being captured from these Arabian trees is a direct descendent of the frankincense oil mentioned throughout ancient texts.


The sacred nature of this species of frankincense makes it the perfect attendant for spiritual work. It is said to enhance the separation between ego and spirit, allowing the ego to be released and the spirit to take over completely. Sacred Frankincense dissipates insecurity and enhances self-esteem. It facilitates centeredness during meditation, yoga, and spiritual study. 


Like other types of frankincense, Frankincense Sacra has positive implications for skincare, and is often used to treat scars, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and signs of aging. It is a potent anti-inflammatory and, thanks to its high levels of alpha pinenecompounds, is indicated for immune use as well.
