It is believed that because it is the oldest documented Frankincense, Frankincense Serrata may be the Frankincense referred to in the Bible and Ayurvedic medicine. Frankincense Serrata is high in natural constituents called alpha thujene, alpha-pinene and limonene. These components belong to the monoterpenes chemical family, lending Frankincense Serrata to being a powerful antiseptic, decongestant and anti-inflammatory agent.
You may want to choose Frankincense Serrata when you’re in need of a deodorizer or air purifier. This oil is also commonly used for meditation and as anointing oil. The Frankincense resin from which it is produced is soft, sticky and rich in oil. Because Frankincense Serrata yields a higher amount of essential oil, it is less expensive than other Frankincenses which don’t yield as much oil. Its aroma is sweeter and more delicate, with terpenic-pine top notes.
