High-quality frankincense

I have purchased the Bulgarian lavender and yarrow essential oil several times and have yet to find oils that compare. This gave me the confidence that Alteya would source non-Bulgarian oils of equal caliber, and I was correct. Frankincense is my favorite oil, and I am quite familiar with the best quality distillations. I would say this oil is on par with those, and at a much lower price point. I have been a fan of Alteya products since discovering them while living overseas, and I have yet to be disappointed in the quality of a product. I also tried the serrata and it is equally as good.
