Experience Calming, Grounding Benefits of Bulk Pure Frankincense Essential Oil

Where Does Frankincense Come From?

Frankincense essential oil comes from the resin of the frankincense or olibanum tree. Before anyone thought of extracting its oil, frankincense resin has been used and traded in the Arabian for over 5,000 years. It has been used as incense, in traditional medicine, and for skin care applications even back then.


The frankincense tree has several species. But, only the Boswellia sacra, Boswellia serrata, and Boswellia papyrifera contain produce true frankincense resin. The resin from these trees contains significant amounts of boswellic acid, which is responsible for frankincense’s benefits.


Scatters Oils extracts its bulk frankincense essential oil from resin produced by Boswellia sacra trees. This particular species produces the highest quality resin, which is traditionally reserved for royalty.

How is Pure Frankincense Oil Produced?

Frankincense essential oil is extracted from the tree’s resin, which is harvested by tapping its bark through a process known as striping. This involves slashing the tree’s outer bark in various parts where its milky white resin will bleed out. This white liquid is left to bleed out and dry for a few days up to a few weeks before being collected and sorted into different grades. 

The dried chunks of frankincense resin are then crushed into powder before extraction. The extraction is done through steam distillation wherein the oils are vaporized into steam then condensed and collected into a separate container. Once cold enough, frankincense essential oil is separated from the water to produce a clear to yellow liquid with a strong, balsamic odor.

Benefits of Pure Frankincense Oil

Helps reduce stress and anxiety
Inhaling frankincense essential oil for at least 30 minutes can reduce the levels of the stress hormone cortisol by deepening one’s breath. This not only helps reduce one's overall stress but also anxiety since it can help them take stock of the situation and ground one’s self in the moment. Studies attribute this effect to the major components found in frankincense oil – limonene and alpha-pinene.
Can help uplift one’s mood
Frankincense can lift one’s spirits by stimulating the production of the hormone serotonin, which is associated with positive feelings. This leads to feelings of satisfaction, peace, and general positivity after using frankincense oil in a diffuser, as a massage oil, or for topical application.
Boosts the immune system
Frankincense can support the body's immune function helping destroy pathogens that may cause disease and preventing free radical damage that may weaken the body’s immune response. Studies attribute these antioxidant, antiseptic, and antimicrobial effects to the alpha-pinene, limonene, and boswellic acids in frankincense.
Can be used as a disinfectant
Ancient civilizations and traditional Chinese medicine have used frankincense as a disinfectant in a variety of ways. These applications include oral antiseptic, topical antiseptic, and internal and surgical disinfectant. Various studies have confirmed its usefulness as a disinfectant, which led to frankincense being used as an ingredient in chemical household cleaners.
Helps maintain oral health
Manufacturers use frankincense as an ingredient in toothpaste, mouthwash, and other oral health products. This is thanks to its good antibacterial properties that can improve oral hygiene, and prevent plaque and gum disease.

Research into frankincense’s antiseptic effects observed that it could help prevent gingivitis, bad breath, cavities, mouth sores, and other dental infections from occurring.
May relieve stomach pain and discomfort
The anti-inflammatory properties of frankincense can help reduce persistent abdominal pain caused by digestive irritation. This can improve symptoms like stomach cramps, bloating, and indigestion. This effect has been observed among those who took boswellia extracts daily for a few months.

Moreover, it can help prevent and remove excess gas and water in the digestive regions. This can relieve the uneasiness, pain, and digestive problems associated with these conditions.
Helps with digestion
Frankincense can speed up the secretion of gastric juices and bile in the digestive system. This improves the digestion and movement of consumed food through the digestive tract. This can help reduce and relieve one’s symptoms when they have constipation or poor bowel movement.
Helps maintain youthful skin
Frankincense oil can help maintain the skin’s elasticity by stimulating collagen production and regulating skin cell growth. This leads to less prominent fine lines and wrinkles and reduced hyperpigmentation on the skin.

One can gain these benefits for their skin by using frankincense as a toner by mixing it with a carrier oil or as an ingredient in a facial toner and other similar products.
Reduce skin inflammation and prevent scarring
Frankincense oil contains anti-inflammatory compounds, which are beneficial in stimulating the growth of skin cells over damaged skin. And, with its antiseptic properties, it can minimize, if not prevent, scars that may form during the healing process.

Because of this, frankincense oil is an invaluable aid for those with osteoarthritis and chronic knee pain.

Traditional Chinese medicine believes frankincense aids in circulating lung chi. Although Western medicine does not subscribe to the concept of chi, medical research has found that it can help those with breathing difficulties by preventing the production of compounds that constrict the bronchial muscles.
Acts as a natural sleep aid
The calming effects of frankincense in aromatherapy can aid sleep by helping the mind and body relax. And, with its respiratory benefits, it can prevent the user’s sleep from being disturbed by respiratory congestion and inflammation.
Promising potential for assisting cancer treatment

Moreover, frankincense can help manage the side effects of chemotherapy by reducing inflammation and relieving the muscle pain of cancer patients. And, with its stress-relieving effect, frankincense can help cancer patients cope with the mental and emotional toll that cancer and its treatment bring.
May improve memory and learning
Frankincense can support cognitive function by preventing and managing the inflammation in the brain that accelerates cognitive decline from aging. It also protects the neurons against free radical damage. And, its stress-relieving effects can indirectly make it easier for users to learn and retain it in their memories.
May improve symptoms of menstruation and menopause
Frankincense has been a traditional remedy for menstrual discomfort. This remains the case today and studies attribute this effect to its ability to reduce inflammation and to help regulate unbalanced hormone production that worsens menopausal symptoms.

Why is it important to use Pure, High Quality, Certified Frankincense Oil?

Frankincense is one of the most expensive essential oils sold in the market today. Because of this, it is important to get only pure and high-quality wholesale frankincense oil. Any alternative to save on cost is unacceptable if you want to provide the best for your customers and establish a positive reputation for your brand.

Unfortunately, it is easy for a bulk essential oil manufacturer to claim that what they offer is high-quality and unadulterated frankincense oil. This is why you should only get your supply from white-label essential oil manufacturers. You can expect to get what you are paying for and only get the best since they follow and maintain practices that require certifications from various third-party governing bodies.

Acquiring your bulk pure frankincense oil from such a supplier will not only ensure that you are getting pure and high-quality oil. But, also, these certifications ensure that you are getting your money’s worth.

Why is Frankincense Oil Expensive?

Frankincense resin is derived from select species of the Boswellia genus tree. These species grow in arid regions of the Arabian Peninsula and parts of Africa and India, and require dry climate and well-drained soil to produce good-quality resin. Harvesting the resin from the tree also requires manual labor and significant time from a few weeks to a few months. 

Moreover, frankincense resin comes in varying qualities and grades. Higher-quality resins produce a more beneficial and aromatic oil and will command a higher price. In some cases, these resins are purified even further to produce pure high-quality frankincense essential oil, which will increase the costs of the final product. 

With these, the cost of farming and producing pure frankincense oil alone can drive up its price. When you add the market’s demand for it, it is not surprising how expensive frankincense oil can get in the market.
