havenessence frankincense

We’ve obtained a fresh supply of Frankincense (boswellia serrata). Steam distilled in the UK from resin imported from Somalia. This frankincense is unlike the more citrus sacra, carteri or thurifera with their high lemon and orange notes. It’s a low, creamy, peppery, “masculine” frankincense. Very strong and volatile. Blends well with the other “Biblical” oils, e.g. labdanum, myrrh, spikenard, galbanum, benzoin. Or when mixed with a good carrier, e.g. argan oil, makes a fabulous personal scent. Some of the best frankincense oil we’ve had and, we suspect, some of the finest in London.
