This is the Frankincense Vital Oil produced from the Pappas process (a special multi-step distillation + proprietary process) to get an oil from the resin that is heavier, deeper and richer than the regular essential oil.This process pulls out the heavier components that are most important that traditional steam distillation cannot access. This particular Vital Oil is used to create our Frankincense IPA and comes from the Ethiopian Boswellia papyrifera resin. This product can be used however you would use normal frankincense essential oil in aromatherapy, diffusers, massage oils, ointments, etc. but you will feel that it has a heavier consistency and stays around much longer than normal frankincense essential oil. Brewers can also experiment with this oil as it adds a very nice orange citrusy character to the beer, because the papyrifera resin is higher in fruity ester components, unlike the traditional Boswellia carterii that most people use. This current batch was donated to us by Essential Oil University to help the brewery in it's legal battle against the Catholic Church who has threatened legal action against us if we don't change our federally trademarked name. We think this product will give anyone who loves frankincense great pleasure as well as help a good cause if you like our name and want us to keep it. Thanks for your support in this battle of David vs Goliath!
