FRANKINCENSE SACRA FAQs
Frankincense is the sap tapped from the scraggly looking Boswellia tree and grown in Oman, Yemen and Somalia. Omani frankincense is said to be the best in the world. The more opaque the resin, the more pure it is. The sap is allowed to harden into a gum resin for several days, and then scraped off in tear-shaped droplets. The resin is then gently steam distilled to extract the very aromatic hugely sought after essential oil. In Oman, the best frankincense is usually reserved for the Sultan and is rarely shipped out of the country. Good quality Boswellia sacra frankincense oil has a woody, earthy, mellow aroma, which is calming and relaxing, and has a host of benefits for your mind and body.
Yes! Not all Essential oils are created equal!
It's important to note that there are many grades of Frankincense and they don’t all offer the same healing, therapeutic and medicinal properties. Often well known organic skincare street brands will go for a 'lesser grade, non medicinal' Frankincense Sacra that offers the highest yield and is therefore less expensive but ultimately less effective.
WHAT IS THE CONSISTENCY?
Pure Frankincense Sacra Essential Oil should be very thin in viscosity, meaning that is is almost of a water-like consistency. Wild Azur Frankincense is a 100% pure essential oil, gently distilled using steam, and so very runny.
“We knew to stand out from other organic skincare brands we had to use the purest grade Boswellia Sacra Frankincense.” Clare, founder
We have many people asking about taking the oil internally, and although we know customers do and would love to endorse this, we are not legally allowed to and nor is anyone else who claims to. However, we make a beautiful and pure oil, It has an abundance of constituents present. We batch it, we maintain the highest possible standard of quality, we store it in our own frankincense cave...... but we can’t pretend we’re doctors.
The oil is also present in Frankincense Face Serum.
It can be applied directly to the skin (1-2 drops to begin) for an intense antioxidant and anti ageing boost ( eg cheek bones/ neck) or to work and heal problem areas such as age spots, acne, scars, moles, sun damage, hyperpigmentation.

"I've been using this product for the last couple of months and I just can't get enough of it! My skin is prone to scars and blemishes and it helps a great deal to reduce these. My angry looking mole takes a bit more time to fade but I'll keep using this beautiful Frankincense sacra for its powerful healing properties. I love adding a few drops of it to my bath for a divine aroma and nourishing my skin. Great product!" AC

My fine lines have reduced and my skin glows a lot more. I don't wear makeup as often now and my skin feels balanced from using this. Highly recommend!" M.Ward
"Recently began using Wild Azur serum and was really almost instantly impressed! I have been using safe, non-toxic cosmetic and skin products for some years and while Ive discovered amazing brands, few could deal with my dry skin. Wild Azur is definitely up there with the best Ive used but even better, was perfect for my dry dehydrated skin." Julia Edgely
"I have super sensitive skin + acne, dry skin, seb dermatitis and a touch of rosacea - it didn't give my skin any reactions at all and makes it feel much more hydrated. It looks calmer and so far I've found it helps with redness." anonymous

MY DODGY MOLES DISAPPEARED. INCREDIBLE HEALING POWER.
Incredible healing benefits on the skin. I had a few skin moles from seeing too much sun in South Africa and was given some pure organic Frankincense Boswellia Sacra oil and told to dab some onto these moles neat twice a day. Within 2 weeks they had completely disappeared so when my wife past the bottle to my mother and the same happened it was a real ‘Wow’ moment. I put it on my skin everyday now to prevent cancerous cells." Greg
I bought this for my 9-year-old daughter to use as she can get dry, sensitive patches of dermatitis. It has been a wonderful first product to give her & it hasn’t let us down! The serum smells wonderful & is very moisturising, absorbing quickly without leaving a greasy sheen. My daughter’s dry patches healed in no time & her skin always looks great when she uses this product. I have also been using it, & it is wonderful for hydration." N.Fletcher

Frankincense Sacra heals and nourishes the skin at a cellular level. This is partly due to it’s powerful phytochemicals. These are chemical compounds in plants to help them thrive and also prevent attack from competitors, predators, or pathogens. Two compounds in particular have had outstanding results in terms of dis-ease prevention and rejuvenation of cells (Boswellic acid and Sesquiterpenes).
We source our organic essential oil from the Dhofar region of Oman, home to the finest and most sustainable frankincense. The Omani government is very strict on controlling over harvesting of the resin. There is more control over it than other countries, right from plantation through to sale. This is the reason one cannot find foreign distilleries making oil from Omani origin resin. The government want to make sure that the trees are protected so the resin is sustainable. The resin is also not farmed but wild growing. Good news for sustaining the resources and our planet!
Our suppliers have a grove of UNESCO trees, and even though the harvesting is not done by the government, the government is strong enough here, and capable, of not allowing the exploitation of the trees.

"I put 2 drops of the oil in my serum and apply my serum twice a day. I've been applying this for about 10 days and I've noticed the reduction in the size of the mole on my face. I also noticed my skin appears smoother and two spots are fading" CB
"I used this product to help with some facial marks which are dramatically improved having used this product underneath the serum. Great healing"
