Description

A rare and hard to find essential oil, artisan distilled in small batches.
Also called “Tigray type” Frankincense due to its preference for the northern area of Ethiopia, Boswellia Papyrifera is the resin of choice for both the Orthodox church and the general populace of Ethiopia who burn it during their daily ritual of preparing coffee.

Frankincense Papyrifera resin yields 1/3 of the essential oil compared to most other types of Frankincense. For this reason you will find it its price is much higher.
Sometimes commercial distillers will mix the resin of B. papyrifera with higher yielding Frankincense resins so it can be sold at a more competitive price. The essential oil of Boswellia papyrifera her in the shop is pure and unadulterated. The purity is reflected in its price which is higher than the essential oil of other Frankincense types in the shop.

More distinguished dignified than most other types of Frankincense, B. Papyrifera essential oil reminds me of well-aged whisky. It has a warm softness and depth. A hint of ripe sweet fruit is carried by honey amber and an ever so slight spiciness.

Until recently, in our North American market, there was little choice as far as the type of Frankincense resin or essential oil one could buy, and it was almost impossible to acquire the rarer types of Frankincense such as Boswellia Papyrifera.

Though one of the loveliest of the Frankincense essential oils, its rarity is compounded by its extremely low yield of essential oil. Few are willing to distill this oleoresin since the financial return is so low.

Frankincense Papyrifera is distinguished from other Frankincense types by the presence of the sesquiterpenes Incensole and Incensole acetate. Studies have shown that these volatile compounds are not only powerful anti-inflammatory agents, but they affect our brain chemistry, reducing anxiety and increasing feelings of heightened spirituality and wellbeing. These compounds are absorbed into our bloodstream through the smoke of burning B. Papyrifera as incense, inhaling the fragrance of the essential oil or applying it with a carrier oil to our skin. Do not ingest essential oils or apply them neat to the skin with out professional supervision!

Ruled astrologically by the Sun, all types of Frankincense are calming to the mind and spirit and aid in meditation and spiritual work.

NOTE: There are NO Boswellic acids in the essential oil of Boswellia Papyrifera or that of any other Frankincense. The Boswellic acids are large, heavy molecules and not volatile. They do not come over in the distillation. For this reason, Boswellic acids will never be present in an essential oil of Frankincense.

Sadly all our Frankincense trees are suffering. They are declining so rapidly in their numbers it is estimated we will lose them all in the next 40-50 years. Unless we step in and apply corrective measures. These magnificent trees are dying at an alarming rate due to human encroachment and unsustainable harvesting practices. They are cut to make room for agriculture, burned as charcoal and cooking fuel, and often overharvested till they die.

    If you love this resin you will love this oil. A little goes a long way. I use it diluted in a roller so it lasts me a long time.

    I would not waste this precious oil it on diffusing — you can use the resin in an electric heater for that…even nicer if I grind it up in a coffee grinder first but also great to mash it up as it warms on the heater!
