Frankincense has so many uses and is one of my favorite essential oils. It has a rich tradition of use that dates back centuries.Frankincense essential oil (FEO) is produced from trees of the genus Boswellia that are native to the Arabian Peninsula, northeast Africa, and India. The Boswellia genus contains about 20 different species. Popular types include B. carterii, B. sacra, B. serrata, or B. neglecta which occur in different locations and show different compositions of oils. Most of the Frankincense essential oils are obtained by steam distillation of an oleo gum resin of Boswellia species.
