Product Background
Frankincense essential oil is considered a holy oil in the Middle East, where it has been used in religious
ceremonies for thousands of years and was one of the gifts given to Christ at his birth. Frankincense is mentioned
in the Ebers Papyrus, an ancient Egyptian scroll from approximately 1500 BCE, that documents its use.
Young Living distills Frankincense oil from the resin of Boswellia carterii trees located in northern Africa, near the
Arabian Peninsula. Frankincense is a key ingredient in many products, including Boswellia Wrinkle Cream, Brain
Power™, Awaken™, Highest Potential™, and Forgiveness™.
Scientific name: Boswellia carterii
Botanical family: Burseraceae
Additional Names: Olibanum, Oil from Lebanon. The name is derived from the Medieval French word for
“real incense.”
Region(s) grown: Somalia
Plant part used: Gum/resin
Extraction method: Steam distilled from gum/resin
YL Region: Most Young Living Frankincense essential oil comes from Somalia.


Q. Is Frankincense Essential Oil highly rated for monoterpenes?
A. Yes, frankincense essential oil contains a high amount of monoterpenes. Other essential oils high in monoterpenes include Galbanum and Hyssop.
Q. In the production of Frankincense Essential Oil, does Young Living get the resin from a vendor and distill it or is it already distilled when it is received?
A. Young Living carries resin, but we purchase the essential oil already distilled by partner producers who adhere to our rigid Seed to Seal process.
Q. How is Frankincense Essential Oil produced from the resin? Are solvents used in the process?
A. It is hydrodistilled. No solvents are used in the process.
Q. I've heard that Hojari is the male frankincense and is considered to be of high quality. Does Young Living’s production process differentiate between male and female varieties?
A. Frankincense plants are considered to be dioecious—both male and female plants exist. However, it is difficult to determine the gender of a plant because they rarely flower. It is collected from both male and female plants. Hojari is considered a high-grade version; however, we are unable to say whether our Frankincense essential oil is made from male or female resin only.
Q. What is the difference between Frankincense and Sacred Frankincense?
A. They are different species of the plant and are harvested from different places. Their essential oils also have different constituents. The top three constituents in each are listed below:
Frankincense: Alpha- Pinene, Limonene, Myrcene.
Sacred Frankincense: Alpha-Pinene, Camphene, Sabinene.
Q. What color and consistency should Frankincense Essential Oil have?
A. The color and consistency can vary naturally with each batch based on many different factors, including time of harvest, amount of sunlight, amount of water, etc. However, it is typically a thinner oil that is pale yellow to light yellow in color.
