Frankincense Vitality™ Essential Oil
Frankincense Vitality™ (Boswellia carterii) essential oil has been used in religious rituals for over 3,000 years. It has an unmistakable taste and carries properties that can help support overall well-being and a healthy immune system when taken internally.*
Young Living’s Boswellia carterii comes from our exclusive farm relationships in Somalia. There are seven main species and 12 or more different grades of frankincense in the world. Its quality is based on age, purity, aroma, and color. Young Living’s Seed to Seal® process masters these qualities, ensuring that we have the finest frankincense. You can witness this yourself by ordering the frankincense resin, smelling its aroma, and seeing the light, pure color of our resin. Young Living Founder D. Gary Young spent many years seeking and researching the finest of frankincense and documented his journey on the Frankincense Trail (Click More Information below).

How to Use Frankincense Essential Oil
The Young Living Training and Education team shares important history and information on the popular Frankincense essential oil! Frankincense is one of the most versatile and favorites in our lineup of the best essential oils.
Vitality Oils Conversion Tip
There are so many wonderful recipes out there where you can easily substitute your Young Living Vitality Oils for the same fresh or dried ingredient; try it in some of your own favorites. There isn’t a hard rule for how to do this. All of our tastes in strength in flavor are different. When in doubt try less. You can always add more if you like.
When you are cooking with Vitality essential oils, keep in mind that essential oils are volatile. This means that the oil molecules want to escape into the air; they will dissipate. When you add heat to the equation, it makes them escape more quickly. With certain protein-based dishes like chicken, I find that I get more flavor when I add the Vitality oils to the dishes when they are finished. When I have something that I have to refrigerate, such as a fruit salad, I’ll add the oil just before serving. Experiment – see what works for you.
Here is a chart to help you with Vitality oil conversion. Again, it is a guideline – flavor to your liking.
- 1 Citrus Fruit, juiced = 10 to 15 Drops of a Vitality oil
- 1 Tablespoon Herbs or Spices = 1 Drop or less of a Vitality oil.
- 1 Teaspoon Herbs or Spices = Dip a toothpick in the Vitality oil. Swirl the toothpick through the wet ingredients and mix.
