Emotional & spiritual benefits
Frankincense has a long history of use in religious and meditation practices and is strongly linked to spirituality.  It soothes and stills the mind, bringing about feelings of calm and comfort. It can help to ease anxious and troubling thoughts, bringing balance where there is obsessiveness. It also assists in grounding the soul.

Cosmetic benefits
A powerful cosmetic oil, Frankincense is celebrated for its anti-ageing benefits. It has rejuvenating properties, smooths wrinkles, and reenergises a dull complexion. Its astringent action assists in healing, reducing puffiness, balancing oiliness and minimising the appearance of fine lines. It can be used for any skin type but is most common in preparations for mature and oily skin. It is also suitable for male skincare products.

Formulation types
Ideal for cleansing, toning and moisturising products due to its balancing, astringent and anti-ageing benefits. Frankincense can be included in facial creams, serums and oils,  scar and stretch mark preparations and more. Popular in male aftershave and colognes, perfumery and grounding or meditation essential oil blends.
