    • Code#:68933
    • Manufacturer:Starwest Botanicals
    • Size/Form:0.33  oz.

    Starwest Botanicals Frankincense Essential Oil - 0.33 oz.

    Starwest Botanicals Frankincense Essential Oil is resinous and incense-like. Balsamic and slightly camphoraceous. Rich, sweet, with a dry quality.

    Aromatherapy Properties:

    • Visualizing
    • Spiritually connecting
    • Centering
    • The most introspective oil
    • Balances extremes of emotion and restores inner tranquility
    • Clearing
    •  Purifying
    • Warming
    • Uplifting 
    • Revitalizing

    One of the best aromas for creating a meditative environment.

    Frankincense is also a great fixative (a fixative is a substance that binds other compounds, slowing down their evaporation and thereby making their fragrance last longer) and preservative. It's also a valuable ingredient in skin care for mature and dry complexions.

    The potency and incredible fragrancing power of this Essential Oil make it a great investment, even though it is one of the pricier oils. If you find it hard to dose the pure oil correctly (it is incredibly strong and intense!), or shy away from the cost, start with Essential Oils blended with Jojoba Oil, classified asi/J(in Jojoba).

    Starwest Essential Oils are the life force in every living plant, containing the essence or soul of the plant. Essential Oils come directly from the roots, bark, wood, seed, fruit, leaves or flower of a plant (sometimes a wheel barrow of flowers will produce only a few drops of oil).
    The essential odor, taste and medicinal properties of each plant can have pronounced effects on the mind, body, emotions and spirit, which can enrich your senses. Research on the psychological and physiological effects of essential oils is well documented. They have been used for centuries to soothe, heal and rejuvenate the body and soul.
    Starwest Essential Oils are 100% pure and natural plant essences, quality tested in our laboratory. Nothing added and nothing taken away. Therapeutically effective and of the highest “Aromatherapy quality”, our essential oils represent the finest quality available today.
    Starwest’s 86 varieties of Essential Oils and Certified Organic Essential Oils are extremely versatile, having a multitude of uses such as Aromatherapy, cooking and flavoring, scenting body care products, creating perfumes, enhancing potpourri sachets and more. Starwest Essential Oils are packaged in amber, light resistant bottles with a dropper for every use.
    Continuing to Support Sustainable agriculture, Starwest also offers 24 varieties of Certified Organic Essential Oils. Grown in compliance with the National Organic Program.

    About Starwest Botanicals
    Starwest Botanicals started as a small retail herb shop in 1975 in Sacramento, California. When they made the decision to begin selling herbs wholesale, they were faced with competition from more-established herb companies. They felt that their best chance to compete was to focus on selling a higher quality of herbs at good prices. Saying that you sell quality herbs sounds rather quaint, as most companies say they sell quality - they knew better. As I hit the road with my sample bag, I could demonstrate to the store buyers that their quality really was better, at equal or just slightly higher prices. Most stores I visited “got it.” They knew that their business would prosper if they carried herbs that were fresh, potent, and worked for the purpose intended.

    They grew rapidly on the strength of their commitment to provide value through a combination of quality products, excellent customer service, and fair prices. In 1979, they built their first herb mill to have better control over the processing of their herbs. In 1980, they began importing herbs from several different countries and supplying manufacturers and wholesalers. They also began supporting the fledgling organic herb industry in 1980. In 1983, Starwest was named to Inc. magazines list of top 500 fastest-growing private companies.

    Today, Starwest is one of the largest suppliers of organic herbs in the United States, with 85,000 sq. ft. of modern warehouse and production space and over one million pounds of herbs and spices in stock. They are proud of their accomplishments, but the thing of which they are most proud is that they have many customers and suppliers that are still doing business with them over 30 years later.

    Starwest believe in offering the best value to their customers for their herbal purchases and, because they directly source their products from around the world and process them in-house, they can deliver on that belief. They also stand behind their products with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. I know it’s easy to make a claim that you’re committed to something; but, just like I showed those herbal stores years ago, they deliver on their commitments.

    Today you have a choice – you can buy mediocre herbs and spices from the many storefronts that have sprung up on the internet, or you can buy higher quality herbs and spices from a company that you can trust. they’re sure you’ll see the same superior quality in their products that store owners saw more than 30 years ago.

    Statement of Quality

    Superior quality has always been the goal at Starwest Botanicals. To fulfill customers' expectations for high quality products, Starwest continues to upgrade its quality control facilities and processes. With their modern equipment and professional personnel, they have made a commitment to continued excellence in product quality.

    Commitment
    Starwest is dedicated to providing the freshest and purest botanicals. They strive to offer only those herbs and spices with verified quality. All of their products emerge from the combined efforts of everyone at Starwest - from their expert purchasers, to experienced lab technicians and machine operators, to their service-oriented, knowledgeable sales staff.

    Purchasing Expertise
    Starwest quality begins with the knowledge and experience of their raw material suppliers from around the world. They purchase herbs and spices from domestic growers and import them from over 20 countries. Direct purchasing ensures that the integrity of their products is consistent and the finest quality available. Their buyers are botanical and herb experts who work closely with their quality control staff, before and after the products arrive, to continually monitor their raw materials. They audit all suppliers yearly to assure they meet their GMP requirements.

    Controlled Processing
    Starwest's integrated, modern milling, blending, and packaging facilities give them total control in providing the correct particle size for cut and powdered herbs (see below for a description of plant parts and product forms). Thorough inspection and cleaning during the milling process insures that the finished product will meet their stringent specifications for quality and cleanliness. At each stage of production, their quality control staff inspects and approves each product before it is allowed to proceed to the next process.

    Laboratory Analysis
    Their professional staff continuously monitors product quality to ensure customer safety and satisfaction. Retained samples from all shipments are thoroughly tested and compared to their extensive reference library of dried herbs and botanicals to verify authenticity. All lot samples are kept for five years and can be traced for verification.

    Starwest utilizes not only their in-house laboratory, but also independent labs and consultants to guarantee their analyses are complete. Testing includes organoleptic analysis for aroma, color, flavor and texture. Physical testing involves moisture, volatile oil content, heavy metals, microbiology, thin layer chromatography, and other tests specific to each herb.

    Independent Auditing
    Starwest’s facility is inspected annually for good manufacturing practices by the American Institute of Baking (AIB), from whom they recently received a score of “Superior.”

    Starwest Botanicals Quality Control
    At Starwest their first priority is quality. To support their customers’ expectations for high quality products, Starwest continues to expand its quality control laboratory and processes. With their high-tech laboratory equipment and experienced Quality Assurance team, Starwest has made a commitment to continued excellence in product quality. They believe that quality begins with the knowledge and experience of their raw material suppliers and continues through the production process to the shipment of the finished goods to the customer.

    In-House Quality Control Laboratory
    Starwest maintains a modern, in-house laboratory staffed by experienced professionals. They provide a complete product analysis, quickly and efficiently, with validated analytical procedures and state of the art equipment.

    Starwest's validated quality assurance testing includes: 

    • Organoleptic testing to ensure proper appearance, color, aroma and flavor. • Microscopic and Macroscopic inspection for foreign matter.
    • HPTLC for identification, to verify purity and authenticity. 
    • ICP-MS heavy metal analysis.
    • Microbiology testing for pathogens such as E. coli and salmonella.
    • Chemical analyses for moisture content, volatile oil, ash and acid insoluble ash.

    High Performance Thin Layer Chromatography (HPTLC)

    In compliance with cGMPs, Starwest currently uses HPTLC testing to accurately determine product identity and purity. By quantifying or comparing the distribution patterns of marker compounds in different solvent systems (unique to each plant and class of actives) against their proprietary Botanical Reference library, their laboratory personnel can confidently and accurately verify product identity and identify known adulterates.

    Inductively Coupled Plasma - Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS)

    ICP-MS offers a very sensitive, specific and reproducible way to determine heavy metal concentration in a wide variety of products. It can identify and quantify each metallic impurity with high sensitivity; and, can be used to test for the entire Periodic Table in one analysis. ICP detection limits for most elements are in the part-per-billion (ppb) range.

    cGMP Compliant
    Starwest complies with current Good Manufacturing Practices, with protocols firmly in place for the documentation and validation of their quality control system to ensure compliance with all relevant food safety regulations. They thoroughly document every aspect of their operations, including receiving, processing, packaging and shipping. Their Quality Assurance team includes individuals dedicated to equipment and process validation, document control, training, and product testing. They insure that FDA-compliant manufacturing protocols are followed, and their products meet their strict requirements for identity, strength, quality and purity.

    Allergens
    Starwest has a full allergen prevention program and have implemented tight controls in their manufacturing processes to prevent cross-contamination of their products with allergens.

    Starwest’s Environmental Dedication

    Ecological & Social Responsibility
    Starwest is committed to selling high quality natural products while preserving the environment. They conduct their business in a way that allows them to maintain their standard of environmental dedication, with commitments to sustainable organic farming and caring for the environment. They make every effort to select ingredients from natural renewable sources and are dedicated to the conservation of plants and the preservation of their natural habitat. They support sustainable wild collection practices to protect species from becoming endangered. They are members of United Plant Savers, an organization that helps spread the word on endangered and at risk plant species.

    Supporting Organic & Sustainable Agriculture
    Certified Organic products are grown and harvested without the use of pesticides, fertilizers, or chemicals, and offer a more sustainable option for feeding ourselves and our communities. Organic farming practices have many environmental, health, and social benefits. Sustainable organic farming can produce crops without depleting our earth’s resources or polluting the environment. Organic farms can even support higher levels of wildlife; and entire ecosystems and ground water are improved by following organic farming methods. By using organic products which are cultivated in a more sustainable way they can also help maintain biodiversity.

    Environmental Practices at Starwest

    Renewable Energy
    Starwest is committed to reducing their energy consumption levels. They have replaced all of their lighting with new low energy units and support their local utilities Greenergy™ program. The Greenergy™ program allows them to purchase power from renewable sources like wind, water and sun. The goal of this program is to build new, cleaner energy resources, reducing the need to build additional high-polluting power plants.

    Recycling
    Starwest has taken the initiative to:

    • Reduce daily company-wide paper usage , and only print their wholesale catalog annually.
    • Use non-toxic inks and recycle all of their printer ink cartridges.
    • Use packaging materials made from recycled material, that are recyclable, and most are bio-degradable.
    • Recycle all cardboard, paper, glass, metal and recyclable plastic in their facility.

    Suggested Use

    Back to top of page

    If you are purchasing this Essential Oil blended with Jojoba, increase the number of drops you add to your body care or bath according to your liking. You can use oils blended with Jojoba in a diffuser, but it is not recommended in diffusers that work with cotton pads - Car Diffuser, Scent Ball, Spa Scenter - or nebulizers. If using an aromalamp or Aromaland's Aromashell it will leave an oily residue that can be washed away; but do not overheat the lamp dish!

    Natural essential oils are highly concentrated and should be used with care.
