Frankincense Hydrosol

Though Frankincense Hydrosol does smell a bit different from Frankincense Essential Oil, the hydrosol shares the same fresh, woody, balsamic, slightly spicy and fruity notes. Those that like Frankincense Essential Oil are likely to love the hydrosol. It's one of my personal favorites for aromatic and spiritual applications. Suzanne Catty describes the aroma of Frankincense Hydrosol as "extraordinary" and considers it sweeter and warmer than the oil.

Botanical Name

Boswellia carterii

Aromatic Strength

Mild-Medium

Shelf Life

Up to 2 years if stored properly (refrigeration is recommended).

Reported Properties, Uses and Applications

Frankincense Hydrosol is probably used most often for fragrancing and spiritual applications, and this is how I use it most often as well. Suzanne Catty suggests using it before meditation and for those that practice energy healing. She reports that it acts as an expectorant, that it can improve the texture of the skin and that it is helpful in hot and humid conditions. [Suzanne Catty, Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy (Rochester, VT: Healing Arts Press, 2001), 79.]
