Organic & Wildcrafted Frankincense Essential Oil - Non-Certified

Organic Frankincense Carterii Essential Oil from The Organic Witch

The Organic Frankincense we are offering is from a small boutique distillery in the USA that is a certified organic distiller. Although the resin is wildcrafted from organically grown Frankincense trees, the landowners in Somalia, where the resin is sourced from, cannot afford the organic certification. This is why we are referring to this oil as a non-certified Organic Oil.
