Frankincense Carterii Essential Oil

Review: Be the first to review Frankincense Carterii

Frankincense Oil, also known as Olibanum, is steam distilled from the resin excreted by the wood, for healing or protecting itself. There are several varieties of Frankincense and the fragrance is quite different among the different varieties. The carterii is the most fragrant and it has a depth that the other do not. It is extensively used in ritual recipes as it is one of the sacred oils.

Therapeutic Use: Frankincense is well known for its supportive effect in meditation and has been used, traditionaly, with myrhh, and sandalwood, for deeper concentration, where it has a unique ability to slow, and quiet the mind. Perfect for those days when you just can't clear your head. In skin care Frankincese offers healing, and anti-aging benefits where it rejuvenates, and repairs, the skin.Excellent for throat, and decolletee, products where it helps to smooth out crepiness. Also an excellent oil for all perfumery work where it offers a slight earthy depth, to blends, without overpowering them.

Fragrance Impact: The fragrance of Frankincense is fresh, and earthy, reminiscent of incense. It has a slight sweetness that is both warm and deep. When combined with other oils it is a powerful bridge note that helps to tie the components together and prevent individual notes from standing out. Be careful though as the fragrance is strong and a little goes a long way unless you're looking for the scent of Frankincense to stand out.
