Dakkara opens the doors of perception with this fine Frankincense’s spirited scent of connection. This is our fifth Frankincense, and we are enthusiastic about this ancient ecclesiastic’s earthy, amber-incense edge tinged with a dash of camphor. Discerning Dakkara is a cleansing and clearing chrism in any context, finesses focus, sentinels the skin, and consistently connects us to our inner core of valor.

Similar to all forms of Boswellia, Dakkara essential oil is distilled from the tree’s resin, yet the “pearls” of this tree are black and rocky textured in lieu of the soft, golden crystalline-tears of the classic carterii Frankincense.This is our fifth beauty from the Boswellia family, and it is a blessing to find fresh strands of these ancient telegrams, distilled again as a touchstone in the eternal timeline of Frankincense’s message for a millennium: upon the altar of existence may we embody the temple of the body.
