Frankincense Absolute is richer than standard Frankincense essential oil and has a balsamic age old resinous warmth with citrus undertones. It possesses great depth and complexity and makes an interesting base note for fresh citrus, spicy and floral accords. Using DPG as a solvent means that it is alcohol free.
Frankincense has been revered and used in Somalia and parts of the Middle East for thousands of years as spiritual incense and for its medicinal uses. It is now also used in high quality cosmetics.
