The pure Frankincense Essential Oil from ECO. Aroma has a spicy, woody, slightly balsamic scent.
Our frankincense essential oil originates from deep within the heart of India, in the district of Shivpuri, Madhya Pradesh. Here, frankincense grows wild in abundance. Frankincense from this part of India is produced by steam distillation of the graded resin, and has its own unique aroma distinct from frankincense sourced in other regions.
Frankincense trees take ten years to mature and grow wild from the natural germination of seeds in the forest. Once mature, the trees will produce exceptional quality resin for around 3-4 years before being rested for four months, this ensures the trees are not depleted and can continue to be a sustainable resource for years to come. The harvest season begins in October and continues through to the middle of March. During this time, the resin is tapped from the tree through small incisions in the bark that allows it to exude slowly into baskets over 2-3 days, hardening during this time. This beautifully aromatic resin is then broken into smaller pieces and loaded into steam distillation units to extract the essential oil. Each tree produces up to 6kg of resin, with 12kg of resin required to produce 1kg of the popular frankincense essential oil.
