Our Frankincense Balm (Boswellia carterii syn.) contains the whole oleo-resin, not just the oil extracted from the resin; many of the effective ingredients are to be found in the resin part rather than the oil, using the whole ensures that ALL effective ingredients are included in the product. We add the Frankincense to oil, not extract the oil from the Frankincense.
Many of these compounds can be absorbed through the skin and are able to cross the blood-brain barrier.
