Smoothing & Rejuvenating
While Frankincense Frereana might seem like the go-to skin-loving oil, Frankincense Carterii is right up there! It’s especially good for helping to smooth and improve the appearance of mature skin. We recommend a dilution of 1-2% for facial application. This oil pairs perfectly with our Younger Glo carrier oil blend. Next time you decide to make a DIY face serum, don’t forget to add this oil to your blend.
Aches & Pains
When life gives you aches and pains, reach for Frankincense Carterii. Whether your joints are starting to feel wear and tear that comes with age or are hurting from overuse, this oil can help. Just dilute to 3-5% in your favorite carrier oil and massage onto the areas of concern. Your joints will thank you!
Comfort & Peace
In times of grief and sadness, essential oils can help. By adding a few drops to your diffuser, it can help bring comfort, peace and an atmosphere of calm. Sometimes you’re mourning the loss of someone special or sometimes life just particularly rough. A peaceful, soothing environment can make all the difference.
Healthy Immune System
Another one of the amazing benefits of this oil is that it helps promote a healthy immune system. For those of you that travel, have children in school or spend a lot of time in a busy office, you know how important it is to stay healthy. Who wouldn’t want to avoid a week of sniffles and coughs!?
