Historical Data: Young Living’s sacred frankincense oil is the first Omani frankincense to be available to those outside of Saudi royals or the privileged of Oman. It is regarded the world over as the rarest, most sought-after aromatic in existence. After 15 years of research, 15 trips to Oman, and numerous meetings and negotiations with Omani officials, Gary Young was granted the first export permit in the history of Oman for the release and export of the oil and permission to build a Young Living distillery in the country and to export of the resulting essential oil out of Oman. Gary was on-site to supervise the building of Young Livings’ Omani distillery, and Young Living has contracted with local harvesters to secure our supply of Omani resin. This marks the first time any Westerners have been able to experience these unique, spiritual properties. Omani frankincense is highly regarded as the frankincense of ancients and the traditional spiritual oil of the biblical times. Historically, it is believed that this beautiful, white hojari resin produced the frankincense that was taken to the Christ Child. Science continues to document the oil’s immense healing properties, which users of this oil already know.
Medical Benefits: Frankincense has been tested as an anticancer agent for its ability to turn off the DNA of cancer cells and return the DNA to a healthy state. Frankincense oil has also been documented to regenerate disc, cartilage, and bone. Therapeutic-grade frankincense oil contains boswellic acids, which are potent ant-inflammatory agents against rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis.
