Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil, Oman Frankincense or Omani hojari is a valuable oil is distilled at the Young Living distillery in Oman.
It is one of the rarest essential oils of the world as this species of frankincense tree only grows in Oman. It is considered the most precious spiritual oil of the Middle East; and as such has not been available outside of Oman for purchase until recently.
Although many texts cite that the species of Boswellia carterii and Boswellia sacra are identical, chemists and historians would disagree; as well as Saudi Royals and Oman Officials! It is believed that Boswellia sacra is the ancient species of which the oil of biblical times was created.
I can tell you that the aroma of Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil is much softer and sweeter; and energetically it has a much higher vibration than Frankincense (Boswellia carterii). The chemistry profile shows that it contains a higher alpha pinene constituent as well.
Immediately I feel drawn to Sacred Frankincense as it is known to increase ones spiritual connection. So if choosing between the two species for meditative work, I would definitely choose Boswellia sacra.
Although the chemistry of the essential oils is slightly different the same spiritual properties of frankincense oil apply.
