Its been a challenge to get the real deal but ive found a supplier that has been dealing with it for a long time and has the genuine product . Ive never seen its oil for sale before and I really cant wait to be able to offer it in small amounts here and on my etsy page . This is the really unique frankincense from Socotra the other kind that's available is quite similar to Boswellia Sacra . There will also be an attar developed with this oil as its base .
