Description - Frankincense essential oil
Frankincense, also known as Olibanum, has been burned as incense in religious ceremonies since the time of the Babylonians and Assyrians, and the ancient Egyptians used Frankincense resin for everything from perfume to salves for soothing skin. Its soothing and beautifying properties are used to revitalise the appearance of skin and help reduce the appearance of imperfections when applied topically. When inhaled or diffused, Frankincense essential oil promotes feelings of peace, relaxation, satisfaction, and overall spiritual and emotional wellness.

Two of the species of Frankincense used by dōTERRA (Boswellia carterii and Boswellia frereana) come from the Sanaag region in Somaliland.
David Stirling and Emily Wright visited Northen Somalia before dōTERRA had any significant presence in the region. What they saw became the impetus for dōTERRA initiatives including the building of warehouses throughout the mountains and a supply chain that allowed individual harvesters to receive better prices for their resins. Thousands of women are now employed cleaning the resin, in safe conditions, getting well paid.

A clip from the previous Frankincense sourcing story, showing some of the dōTERRA initiatives in northern Somalia (in Somaliland) and the effect they have had on the welfare of the harvesters.
dōTERRA actively funds research and sustainability initiatives in Somaliland and Oman to protect the Boswellia trees, as well as assisted regrowth and propagation programmes.

Abdilahi lives in the Sanaag region (Somaliland). Abdilahi is the fifth generation of his family to inherit the Frankincense trees that he harvests with his son, Mohamed, for a living. The Boswellia has a slim trunk and few roots, and grows in steep, mountainous areas where harvesters need to be extra careful collecting the resin.
After the resin is scraped and collected by the harvesters, it is cleaned and organised by size and colour for quality grading. The resins best suited are then distilled to produce essential oil.
Over-harvesting is evident in trees that have too many cuts, are cut too deep, or are not allowed to sufficiently rest between cuts. Abdilahi worries that with frankincense being the primary economic resource in their community; if harvesters are pushed to overuse the trees, they will be quickly depleted. Abdilahi believes the older generation must teach the younger generation how to protect the trees, and how improper cuts could potentially damage them. He sees the Frankincense tree as a gift that the community should preserve collectively.

dōTERRA Frankincense essential oil is a blend of four species of the Boswellia tree: Boswellia papyrifera (Ethiopia), Boswellia sacra (Oman), Boswellia carterii and Boswellia frereana (Somaliland).
dōTERRA's involvement in these regions has markedly improved the conditions of the harvesters who rely on these trees for an income. The increased price that harvesters now receive for their resin means that their income has improved without a need for over-harvesting the trees. This ensures longevity of the trees, and a sustainable income for generations to come.

Thousands of years ago, Boswellia Sacra could be valued as much as gold and became the first worldwide export. Caravans carried Myrrh
and Frankincense on the Incense route
from Oman and Yemen, up the Arabian Peninsular to Petra (Jordan). From there the resin would be exported to the Mediterranean states via the port of Gaza, or continue on the land route to Damascus.
In this video dōTERRA partner Ashad, in Oman, shows Emily Wright a Boswellia Sacra tree that has been recently harvested and describes how the tree is scored to produce a milky liquid, which is left for about two weeks to crystalise and fall from the tree, and then collected as resin.
Emily also discusses the dōTERRA initiative to propagate an additional 20,000 Boswellia Sacra in Oman during the 2020 year.
