doTERRA Frankincense Essential Oil is steam distilled from the resin of three Boswellia tree species, Carterii, Frereana and Sacra. These rugged trees are often found growing in rocky terrain, along cliffs, crags and coastal mountains. These species of Frankincense are native to northern Somalia, southern Yemen and south western Oman. One Boswellia sacra tree may produce as much as 2 lbs of the resin used to produce Frankincense oil every year. If properly cared for a single tree may be used for 100s of years.
