Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Frankincense Sacra and Frankincense CarteriI essential oil?
  • Frankincense-Sacra, having the latin binomial Boswellia sacra, is a different essential oil than Frankincense-Carterii, having the latin binomial Boswellia carterii. Each Frankincense essential oil, although coming from the same Frankincense tree, both being steam distilled, and being 100% pure, have different properties and stronger affinities to different things within the realm of aromatherapy. For example, Frankincense-Carterii has a very strong affinity to the skin, whereas Frankincense-sacra has a much stronger affinity to addressing deeper emotional wounds and mental health issues. Their chemical components are slightly different and have different percentages of each, thus creating different uses between each one.
What does Frankincense essential oil do?
  • Frankincense essential oil is known as a supporting oil - this means that by itself, it has strong properties of its own, but when combined with other essential oils, it builds up and supports the properties of the other oils. Frankincense is often added in a blend as a grounding essential oil that supports the rest of the blend and makes it act more cohesively. It has been known to help clear the mind, ground emotions, and support overall health. It can also create calming and relaxing environments while being used in a water-based diffuser, especially when combined with other relaxing and grounding essential oils.
How to use Frankincense essential oil for skin?
  • There are many ways to use Frankincense essential oils in skin care and personal care. The main thing we first recommend is to always use some sort of carrier oil - applying Frankincense to the skin, although not known to be a skin sensitizer, is always safer when used with a carrier oil. To soothe inflammation and to support healthy scar healing, combine 5 drops Frankincense essential oil with 1 teaspoon aloe vera gel. Mix thoroughly until well combined; take a small amount and massage over the skin. Pat to remove with a damp towel and apply an all-natural moisturizer afterward.
What essential oil is similar to Frankincense?
  • An essential oil that is similar to Frankincense is Palo Santo, oftentimes called “poor man’s frankincense”. It is traditionally extracted using the steam distillation method, and is the same family as Frankincense, Myrrh and Elemi. It has very similar benefits to Frankincense, including uses in meditation and prayer. While it has a much spicier and more peppery aroma, you can use Palo Santo in a pinch when you don’t have any Frankincense on your shelf. Please note, you can find Frankincense and Palo Santo in incense form as well - these are not similar to the essential oils of either of these.
What essential oils smell good with Frankincense?
  • Frankincense-sacra has a warm, slightly sweet, balsamic aroma that can be combined with many different essential oils. To create a warm and cozy environment, try blending it with Vanilla Oleoresin. To create a sweeter aroma, try adding bergamot, tangerine or rose. To create an herbal, balsamic aroma, try combining it with rosemary, lemon and peppermint.
