“Until the cool of the day
When the shadows flee away,
I will go my way to the mountain of myrrh
And to the hill of frankincense."

Song of Solomon 4:6


This single essential oil comes undiluted in a 10ML glass bottle.

Frankincense B. frereana is my second favorite frank variety. Its scent is pure, bright, and full bodied and somehow brings joy every time I breathe it in. It's no wonder YHWH chose this sweet and luxurious resin for the Holy anlointing oil for the priests that foreshadowed the Messiah! If you haven't ever experienced it, you need to. It's like taking a trip to Israel through your olfactory gland and one of the singles that I reach for most often.

Methods of Use


Aromatherapy: The use of natural, aromatic substances, known as essential oils, have been proven to directly connect to the amygdala and the lymbic system in the brain where the seat of emotions is, as well as enter the blood stream just through smelling., offering mental, emotional and physical healing support.
