Frankincense is a heady, spicy aroma from the resin of the Boswellia tree. It is a primal incense and spice that has been traded in North Africa and Arabia for more than 5,000 years. The frankincense trade was even depicted on a mural in a temple dedicated to Egyptian Queen Hatshepsut, who died in 1458 B.C. The resin is well known in the Hebrew Bible as part of the consecrated incense burned at the altars of the First and Second Jerusalem Temples. In the Far East, frankincense has long been used in traditional healing and is thought to bring good health in Indian culture.
All our synthetic fragrance notes are premium grade, alcohol-free, phthalate-free, and undiluted. We work hard to ensure that your perfume ingredients are top-quality, highly concentrated, and will mix neatly with both alcohol and oil bases. These are not ready to wear as fragrances – they MUST be diluted before applying directly to skin. It is always a good idea to do a patch test for allergies, with both natural and synthetic materials. And of course – do not eat the oils. No matter how yummy they may smell.
Note: Although these are phthalate-free, they are NOT non-toxic. Don't eat them. Don't drink them. Patch test on skin. Dilute before wearing.
