This is a skin-loving, rejuvenative and anti-inflammatory oil extract of Fresh Frankincense resin containing all the Boswellic acids naturally present in Frankincense Dalzielii.
Frankincense has been used in Traditional medicine for hundreds if not thousands of years to address a plethora of health conditions.
Recent research is confirming the therapeutic effectiveness of Boswellic acids found in some types of Frankincense.
It is the resin portion of the different types of Frankincense that contain the Boswellic acids, NOT the essential oils as popularly thought. The essential oils of Frankincense do NOT contain Boswellic acids except in trace amounts. The Boswellic acids can be accessed by using the fresh powder or dissolving the whole oleoresin in warm oil, alcohol or other solvents.
This is a golden oil with the characteristic sweet citrus/mint scent of Boswellia Dalzielii.
It is made with fresh Frankincense Dalzielii and Fractionated Coconut oil. The resin is powdered and processed gently in a warm water bath for a few hours to capture as much of the fragrance and resin-based compounds as possible. After the water bath, it left to sit and stirred daily for approximately a month and a half before it is filtered and bottled. No harsh solvents are used in the process.
It is produced Astrodynamically which is a method of preparation based on the tenets of traditional plant Alchemy and medicinal astrology. Experience has shown that products made this way distinguish themselves with improved colour, aroma, shelf life and efficacy.
