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).

I bought it 2 weeks ago, to early to tell. I enjoy the feeling

After cancer treatment I kept getting lymph clogging up and accumulating tightly against my esophagus that caused me battling to swallow. Years ago, initially lymph swelling caused cancer in my neck, therefor when more lymph nodes popped out I had to do something natural and fast. I rubbed frankincense on the area day and night and within a month all lymph nodes restored and since i keep using it as a beauty regime, no more lymph has accumulated causing swelling and pressure and no nodes are popping out anymore. It helps the lymph to move and moving lymph creates a healthy body. This for me was a life saver, I will never stop using it.

I’ve been using a mixture of Francinsense, lavender rosehip, myrhh and jojoba oils as a moisturizer for some years. I find that the combination suits my mature skin perfectly and is extremely cost effective.

Fantastic! Won't be without it. Applying to my s kin cancer spots on my chest at night and they are almost gone! Mix about 3 drops in a little coconut oil and apply.
06/11/2019, By Charity
I love this essential oil. I add it to my coconut oil moisturizer for my body and face. 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 Riana
I'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 Dineo
Small bottle
19/10/2019, By Chevonne
My 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 Abigail
I used Frankinsence along with a few other oils diluted in coconut oil as part of my moisturising routine. It is known for being great at many things but skin is the most common one. I can see a difference in my skin in just a week! Love it!

First time using Frankincense oil for my face as part of my moisturising routine. So far enjoying the scent and happy with the feel of my skin after application (using together with sweet almond oil and Rosehip oil). Long term results remain to be seen...
10/06/2019, By M
Incredibly versatile and useful oil
27/05/2019, By Ilse

10/05/2019, By Lorne
Wonderful product, use it to moisturize my face. Works a treat.
18/04/2019, By Sarah
An amazing product. Love it!
11/04/2019, By Riana
I 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 Monica
It has a luxurious feel to it. Smells great and works very well on my skin. Non greasy.

19/02/2019, By Roxanne
I use this incredible oil in the bath and also in my nightly steam to help with my sinus and allergy issues. It works very well with lavender and not only soothes my sinuses but also helps me sleep better, too.
24/01/2019, By Lorette
Wonderful product!
15/01/2019, By Amber
I am so disappointed with this oil as it is nothing like the frankincense that I know. I have been using essential oils for the past 30 years and love frankincense. Hopefully this version will grow on me!
08/12/2018, By Ruth
Soil EO's are usually my first choice when it comes to EO's. They are affordable, locally sourced where possible and excellent quality. Soil Frankincense is no exception, and is such an important multi use oil and one I don't ever want to be without

Great for sensitive skin
01/12/2017, By CHRISTINE
This frankincense is very concentrated and an excellent addition to my face cream recipes. Very good for wrinkles as it has anti-aging properties. We also use it to treat skin cancer spots with brilliant results.
23/09/2017, By Rhett
only started to use it so can not say much...but should help a lot))
21/09/2017, By Claire
I have just starting using this for breakouts and under my eyes. I use it without a carrier oil. Once applied under my eyes I then use Jojoba oil over my face.
I sometimes inhale it for a pick me upper and feel instantly uplifted!
Love the smell of frankincense... there's something very special about this oil!!!
18/08/2017, By Becks
I 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 Este
This 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 Monika
One of my favourite essential oils! love the smell and amazing health benefits... Fragrance itself soothing clean and uplifting.
30/06/2017, By Kerry
Absolutely love Frankinsense, it is the favourite of my all!
29/06/2017, By Shanon
I 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 Larisa
The 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 Des
I have utilised this in my homemade cleansing facial oil, as well as my homemade face serum.
21/04/2017, By Liesl
Frankincense 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 Janine
Ive 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. Dont know of any other benefits as yet but it is early days.
20/03/2016, By Isabel
Great product - used with Grapeseed or coconut oil as massage. Uplifting and said to be helpful in cancer treatment
02/03/2016, By Candice
Recommended for many ailments this is an essential oil to have in the home. Really helps with mental peace, relaxation and satisfaction. The perfect way to end of a week, burning a few drops and enjoying the sedative effect.

We are very satisfied with the Soil Frankincense oil and prefer it. Used with Coconut Oil (one drop to a teaspoon of Coconut Oil) - it helps the immune system against cancer.

I use this oil for steaming and inhalation. Clears the airway and lungs. Good to use when you have allergies. I also purchased the incense, wonderful smell and creates a calming atmosphere.
