We are extremely selective about Frankincense frereana and only offer it when we are able to source a beauty!  From the same source as our new Frankincense rivae offering...a most beautiful resinous "tree sap" oil from Somalia.  We fell in love!  Yes, Frankincense resin begins its journey as an aromatic tree sap which forms resin. The oil is steam-distilled from the resin and voilà! A lovely oil emerges! (A slightly pungent and earthy, yet sweet aroma--sheer delight!)

This specimen is higher in the monoterpene a-thujene (55%) which contributes to its earthy pungency. 

Uses include: antibacterial, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant. My instinct is to reach for it for pain relief. I am not certain how its components will contribute to a meditative state. But for perfumery, or for skin care, it truly is a "must experience" oil.

Safety: No known contraindications. Avoid oxidation.

SHELF LIFE: Approximately 2 to 3 years after you open the bottle.  Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.

  • 5 Become big fan of ferrera

    Posted by Misao from Washington on 12/12/2019

    I have a very little knowledge of essential oil and lavender (High Altitude) has been my most favorite essential oil. But, after trying Frereana, I am getting more and more obsessed with this oil. I don’t have any words to describe this elegant fragrance.
    I do a lot of activities, hiking in Summer and skiing in Winter. Some people, younger side offer me some marijuana on the trails and I say "no thanks, I do essential oil".
