Aroma:Resinous and incense-like. Balsamic and slightly camphoraceous. Rich, sweet, with a dry quality.
Aromatherapy Properties:Visualizing, spiritually connecting, centering. Probably the most introspective oil. Balances extremes of emotion and restores inner tranquility. Clearing, purifying, warming, uplifting and revitalizing.
One of the best aromas for creating a meditative environment.
Frankincense is also a great fixative (a fixative is a substance that binds other compounds, slowing down their evaporation and thereby making their fragrance last longer) and preservative. It’s also a valuable ingredient in skin care for mature and dry complexions.
The potency and incredible fragrancing power of this Essential Oil make it a great investment, even though it is one of the pricier oils. If you find it hard to dose the pure oil correctly (it is incredibly strong and intense!), or shy away from the cost, start with Essential Oils blended with Jojoba Oil, classified as”i/J”(“in Jojoba”).
Suggested Use:If you are purchasing this Essential Oil blended with Jojoba, increase the number of drops you add to your body care or bath according to your liking. You can use oils blended with Jojoba in a diffuser, but it is not recommended in diffusers that work with cotton pads – Car Diffuser, Scent Ball, Spa Scenter – or nebulizers. If using an aromalamp or Aromaland’s Aromashell it will leave an oily residue that can be washed away; but do not overheat the lamp dish!
