Frankincense vs. Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil


Have you ever wondered the difference between Frankincense and Sacred Frankincense essential oil. I have too! So I did some research and found out some interesting info!

Regular Frankincense Boswellia carterii 

  • sourced from Somalia.
  • best choice for your immune system 
  • cheaper*
  • less pungent smell

Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil Boswellia sacra 

  • sourced from Oman
  • used for it’s more spiritual abilities (higher vibration)
  • ancient species of the biblical times
  • stronger scent 
  • best choice for treating cancer

Bottom Line: Their chemistry is quite similar and can be used the same way for medical and health issues but the quality of the species vary and should be taken into consideration. 

*The cost of the two varies also, with the regular Frankincense being a little cheaper than the sacred variety.
