Boswellia serrate is a medium-sized deciduous tree with a light, spreading crown and drooping branches. The tree produces an oleo-resin known as Frankincense. The English word Frankincense originates from the French word Franc-Encens, which means high-quality essence or fragrance. This oleo-resin is used for extracting the essential oil that is used for its aroma and therapeutic abilities. Its aroma has a relaxing and focusing effect on the mind.
Ecodrop’s Organic Frankincense essential oil is produced by steam distillation of the oleo-resin of Boswellia serrata tree sourced from India. Ecodrop ensures the best quality of the essential oil by processing only dark yellow, amber-coloured resins obtained at the end of cultivation during summer and by maintaining a PH range of 5.5-6.5. The raw material obtained self-preserves itself until it crystallises, which is then crushed into a fine powder and steam distilled.
