Frankincense essential oil blends well with basil, geranium, lavender, orange, neroli, patchouli, cedarwood, and sandalwood.
The English word frankincense is derived from Old French "franc encens" which means "high quality, noble or pure incense." Frankincense has been treasured and traded throughout the world for over 5000 years. Depicted on murals in ancient Egypt, mentioned in the Hebrew Bible, Talmud and New Testement, written about by the ancient Greek historian Herodotus, and introduced to medieval Europe by French Crusaders, Frankincese's historical roots run very deep.
Frankincense is used primarily in perfumery and aromatherapy.
The distinctive aroma of Eucalyotus is camphorous with a woody sweet undertone. Frankicnense essential oil is produced by steam distillation of the dried tree resin or sap.
