Directions for Use
Essential oils are the highly concentrated active ingredients of plants. They should always be diluted in a base before use and should not be taken internally without professional recommendation.
- Baths: Add 5 - 10 drops of essential oil(s) to a warm run bath. If skin is sensitive, blend the essential oil in a teaspoon of carrier oil first. Close the door so the vapours don't escape. Soak for at least 10 minutes relaxing and breathing deeply. For added moisturising dilute the oils in 10ml of carrier before adding to the bath.
- Massage: add 5 - 6 drops of essential oil per 10ml of carrier oil. Mix thoroughly and apply liberally to the skin.
- Inhalations: Add 4 - 5 drops of essential oil to a bowl of steaming water. Place a towel over your head, close your eyes and lean over the bowl. Inhale the vapour for a few minutes.
- Burners and Diffusers: Fill the bowl of the burner/vaporiser with water and then add 3 - 6 drops of essential oil. Light the candle and the oil will evaporate as the water heats up. Do not let the bowl dry out.
Caring for Your Essential Oils
SOil essential oils and carrier oils are living products that are vulnerable to heat, moisture, air and light. It is best to store them in a cool, dark place with the lids well sealed. If your fridge is the only cool place around, allow the oils to reach a cool room temperature before use (around 20 degrees C).

It has an exotic but earthy scent which is also luxurious. I find it very soothing and calming. Since I started using it together with ylang ylang I found myself much less anxious and stressed. I also used it in the evening and found it easier to fall asleep. I'm definitely pleased with the purchase.23/10/2019, By RianaI've been using this for quite a while. Apart from the dropper that releases too much, this is an aroma that I've come to love, and often I just inhale it gently, straight from the bottle.23/10/2019, By DineoSmall bottle19/10/2019, By ChevonneMy skin is very dry so I add 1 OR 2 drops to my coconut oil as night treatment for my face and I love it.26/08/2019, By AbigailI used Frankinsence along with a few other oils diluted in coconut oil as part of my moisturising routine.

It has a strong but clean smell and leaves my skin hydrated and rejuvenated. My skin absorbed it fast.10/05/2019, By LorneWonderful product, use it to moisturize my face. Works a treat.18/04/2019, By SarahAn amazing product. Love it!11/04/2019, By RianaI have not used this much, so cannot truly give a review of its worth, but one thing that I find upsetting, is the fact that the dropper works poorly. On carefully tilting it to get out a drop, it just runs ... Being a very expensive oil, this is very wasteful. Often one requires only one or two drops, but end up with much more, and sometimes having to wipe down spilled oil. It looks like the hole is much too big ... Is it intentional so people would buy more sooner? Or just a problem with my bottle? I found this problem with other oils in this range too.08/04/2019, By MonicaIt has a luxurious feel to it. Smells great and works very well on my skin. Non greasy.08/04/2019, By MonicaIt has a luxurious feel to it. Smells great and works very well on my skin. Non greasy.31/03/2019, By LebogangThe smell.

Very good for wrinkles as it has anti-aging properties.

Love the smell of frankincense... there's something very special about this oil!!!18/08/2017, By BecksI really love this oil. The smell on your skin settles to a beautiful, spicy citrus scent. It reminded me a little bit of the Incense smell of a church, but it was subtle and very relaxing.11/08/2017, By EsteThis is my first experience with essential oils. I have been suffering from bad hormonal breakouts and have been applying the oil for about 2 weeks now. I do see an improvement with regards to the breakouts. It does not smell very nice and it dries out my skin a bit, but it helps:) Will buy again.01/08/2017, By MonikaOne of my favourite essential oils! love the smell and amazing health benefits... Fragrance itself soothing clean and uplifting.30/06/2017, By KerryAbsolutely love Frankinsense, it is the favourite of my all!29/06/2017, By ShanonI must say it is a very weird sent that I'm not used to and only use this in the morning to try and lighten acne scars I have and prevent breakouts. Honestly, this has really work for me and I have been using this for 3 weeks and seeing amazing results. If you want to lighten acne scars and prevent breakouts I really recommend using frankincense oil in the morning as this will also not be as harsh as lemon essential oil.09/06/2017, By LarisaThe King of essential oils! So many great uses; smells great and lasts a long time. I love this brand too! Their oils are top-notch.29/05/2017, By DesI have utilised this in my homemade cleansing facial oil, as well as my homemade face serum.21/04/2017, By LieslFrankincense is an healing oil for acne. It is anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-scarring and astringent. It helps to detox the skin and heal old scars. The best way to apply is to mix up your own skin healing facial oil. In a 30ml amber glass dropper bottle, add 4 drops of Frankincense essential oi, 3 drops of Lavender essential oil and 2 drops of Tea Tree oil. Top up with Grapeseed oil, shake vigorously and store in a cool dark place. Apply just 2 or 3 drops in the palms of your hands, rub your palms together to warm, and press the serum on your whole face and neck every night before bed.04/04/2016, By JanineIve added 20 drops of frankincense and 20 drops of lavender oil to my 100ml tamanu oil for the oil cleansing method and Im happy with the scent and how relaxed I feel when breathing it in from my facecloth.
