Frankincense Carteri CO2 — DIY Muscle & Joint Rub

The process in which CO2’s are extracted enables the oil to maintain constituents that may not be present through steam distillation.  Read more about CO2 Extracts here.

Frankincense Carteri CO2 is excellent for sore muscles and aging joints.  It is also fabulous for mature skin and can be used in this serum found here.  Use it to promote clear breathing: 2 drops Frankincense Carteri CO2, 2 drops Eucalyptus Globulus, 1 drop Rosemary 1,8-Cineole, 1 drop Spruce into your diffuser.

DIY Pain Salve

What you’ll need:
What you’ll do:
  1. Measure your oil and beeswax into a half pint jar. Place the metal band from the jar in the bottom of a pan of water. Then, place your half-pint jar on it. (I have had jars crack sitting on the bottom of the pot, so I now use this method to reduce the risk of cracking.)
  2. Melt the oils with the beeswax, stirring occasionally.
  3. Carefully remove to a space on the counter. I lay out a dish towel to protect the counter. Stir in your essential oils.
  4. Allow the salve to cool, with the lid on so the oils don’t evaporate out. Leaving the salve set until fully cooled will ensure a smooth final finish on top!

  1. So, I’ve tried both the regular Frankincense Carteri and the CO2, and I’m not really sure which works better for me when mixed with Copaiba for topical pain rub. I’m curious if one is preferable over the other… I’m curious about what others’ experiences have been?

  2. At the time I only have frank Serrata, will that work? And could I also add rapid relief? What’s the max dilution rate for this rub? Thanks so much!

    1. Brandy, you could substitute the Frankincense CO2 with Serrata, though you may find the CO2 to be more beneficial. I would not recommend adding Rapid Relief to this blend and instead using Rapid Relief on its own after being diluted. Also, the dilution rate for this rub is about 3%. Thank you so much for your questions!

  3. Could you use a different carrier oil? I was thinking hemp oil as I believe it has anti – inflammatory properties as well.
