This is a fragrant, skin-loving and soothing extract of Fresh Frankincense resin containing all the Boswellic acids naturally present in Frankincense Serrata. Made with whole, premium-grade A Frankincense Serrata oleoresin from India, there are no fragrances or essential oils added.
Frankincense Serrata is one of 5 Frankincense types that contain the Boswellic Acids.
Frankincense Serrata has been used in Traditional Indian, Persian, Unani and Ayurvedic medicine for hundreds if not thousands of years. It has also been used in traditional cosmetic formulas for mature skin.
This oil can be used as a base for a rejuvenating skin creme when blended with distilled water and emulsifying wax as per standard formulas or used neat on the skin as a massage oil.
Recent research is confirming the therapeutic effectiveness of the Boswellic acids in Frankincense. They are found in the resin portion of the different types of Frankincense and 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 amber/spice scent of Boswellia Serrata.
It is made with fresh Frankincense Serrata and Fractionated Coconut oil. It is powdered finely 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.
