So many companies, even some with pure $intentions, are not getting #pure
oils like they #believe
and promote. No other company goes through the #efforts
does to ensure they are pure and of the highest possible #quality
Gary Young had his first encounter with adulterated #frankincense
in 1997 when a third party broker #assured
Gary on a stack of Bibles (or should I say Quran's) that his very expensive, premium, “Howjari” grade “luban” oil was the best in the world. At the time, we were working with Jim Kababick at Flora Research who did our advanced biochemical analysis prior to Gary’s multiyear, #million
-dollar build-out of his own state-of-the-art Young Living #essential
When Gary parsed the report he was stunned: What smelled like frankincense (#Boswellia
carterii) was in #fact
“extended” frankincense: A small amount of real oil dissolved in 98% diethyl phthalate.
This incident prompted Gary to be the first to travel to #Oman
to secure genuine frankincense and distill it himself. In this photo from 2010 we are interviewing a major Frankincense and #Myrrh
exporter in Yemen to secure a supply of authentic #resin
for distillation. Young Living is the only company in the #world #legally #permitted
to sell and distill Sacred Frankincense (Boswellia sacra) from Oman.
