First and foremost, let us share with you the different grades of frankincense available, and they are;

With six main grades of frankincense, one can be easily confused when buying them. Therefore, we always recommend those who are interested to learn more, to walk in to our shop as we can show you the difference in them.
You will also get to do the smell and taste test, meaning you get to hold and also try the sacred frankincense resin, which is safe for human consumption.

At Green Daun, we are also selling the raw frankincense resin for those who want a more natural and organic method for usage. Just so you know, the pure frankincense oils extracted from the resin are only around 20%.
Also to add that sacred frankincense contains 20% more alpha-pinene than other types of frankincense, and alpha-pinene provides great therapeutic benefits for the immune system, skin, oral health, and the respiratory system.
What is the Difference in Frankincense Essential Oils?
This is a highly subjective topic as there are many out there who claim that certain species of frankincense oils are better for certain purposes.
While you may have done research online about this, you would have found overwhelming information from various different websites on this, and most of them are western websites.
The source for frankincense comes from the Gulf regions in the Middle East, and dates back thousands of years. And no, it is not from the United States or other developed countries as some people may think.
People in the Middle East have been using raw frankincense for centuries, and they have been benefiting from this, in a very natural way. Only in the last 20 years or so, Westerners have made it into an organic way of life.
Hence was born brands like Young Living, Doterra and Plant Therapy, just to name a few, which have brought frankincense essential oils to another level.
If you are a Young Living user, you would know that there are two types of frankincense essential oils produced by them. The cheaper one is known as just frankincense, and the premium one as sacred frankincense.
So, what is the difference between the two frankincense oils?
- Frankincense Essential Oil – Made from the Somalia and Yemen frankincense resin, and has an earthy and musky smell. That is all.
- Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil – Made from the Oman frankincense resin, and has a much more pleasant scent, a mild woody and sweet citrus smell.
But there are also many other brands that sell frankincense essential oils, and for a much cheaper price too. And you should also know that most of those oils are either blended or simply using the lowest quality grades.
A good grade of frankincense essential oil would cost above RM150.00, for a 5 ml bottle. So, if you do the math, you would know what kind of grade is being sold, especially for anything less than that price.
Our Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil that we sell?
We will be very honest with you on this, as we sell only the Omani sacred frankincense essential oils, which comes from the same premium grade that Young Living sells.
Our essential oils are sold in 10 ml bottles, and the price? Please contact us about this, or visit our shop to smell, test or taste the quality of our sacred frankincense.

Buying Sacred Frankincense Essential Oils Online
No doubt that technology has made sourcing for anything online easier, there is still a lot of learn and understand about this concept of online shopping.
As more people have accepted buying things online, more people have also taken advantage of this by misleading consumers, or in a straightforward word – cheating consumers.
If you are a new user or someone who wants to learn more about this, don’t just find the cheapest product online and buy it.
Chances are that the seller will claim they are using high grade, and offer a promotion, only to leave you being cheated.
Why we say this is because we have met many customers that walked into our shop, who shared their frustrations about buying frankincense essential oils online, and received lowest quality grades.
Some popular online marketplaces in Malaysia are also seen promoting sacred frankincense oils, and judging from the price, they don’t justify at all.
There are also cases of fake frankincense essential oils, which are actually fragrances being passed off as the real thing. But after you buy them, and have it delivered to you, it is too late.
This goes to show that not everything you see online is a sure thing. Some things require seeing, feeling and testing, before making the purchase, and that is why we encourage consumers to be smart about certain things.
