Frankincense Serrata CO2 leaves a very complete scent. It has a green and woody aroma that is so pleasant it is great all on its own. Perfumes often include it because the scent is so appealing. This oil is used in many forms of therapy as it is prized for it’s meditative and mind clearing abilities.
