Infused, Not Blended

Though it might seem counterintuitive, this oil is actually not a blend. This unique oil is not the product of two essential oils blended together. This oil is actually an infusion, a kind of oil we’ve never offered before. 

To create this beautiful infusion, the flowering tops of the lavender plant are left soaking in Frankincense Carterii essential oil to infuse. The lavender used in this infused oil is Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Extract. You might notice that this is the same name as our Lavender CO2. This imparts a slightly floral lavender scent into the beautiful scent of the Frankincense. The result is a green, balsamic, lemony-wood with a unique herbaceous-floral note. 

This lovely oil blends well with Australian Sandalwood, Bergamot, Coriander Seed, Lemon, Rose Absolute, and Sweet Orange.

 

Same, But Different

lavender infused frankincenseThis oil can be used in all the same ways as Frankincense Carterii with the added benefit of its unique light floral aroma. Although this infusion does not impact the key constituents of Frankincense Carterii, the characteristics of the Lavender do carry though in this infusion.

Even more interesting, as noted on the GC/MS report for our Lavender-Infused Frankincense, there is a presence of methyl decyl ether, a chemical constituent found in Frankincense Carterii. A new hypothesis by researchers suggests that methyl decyl ether might indicate that the Frankincense used in this product might be the product of a newly proposed species of Frankincense, Boswellia occulta.

At Plant Therapy, we stand by our suppliers and trust their knowledge and resources on the products they provide. With that said, due to the limited research and evidence indicating that this essential oil is from the proposed new species, we are standing by the classification of Boswellia carterii. If and when new research is available, we will reevaluate and make any necessary changes. 

 

Benefits

woman sleeping in her bedIt’s no surprise that Lavender Infused Frankincense carries the therapeutic benefits as Frankincense Carterii. When diffused, it can help bring comfort, peace and an atmosphere of calm. Whether you need to unwind before bed or had a rough day, a peaceful, soothing environment can make all the difference. Another amazing benefit of both Frankincense and Lavender is helping promote healthy, radiant and smooth skin. Try adding it to a carrier oil like Younger Glo and using it as a daily facial serum. It’s also great for helping ease aches and pains.

  1. This is my favorite oil I’ve ever owned and I own.. a lot. I’m going to be devastated when I run out please consider eventually making this a regular oil for purchase.

  2. This oil is amazing! I love the smell, and I use it in the diffuser to relax after a long day at the office. I would love to see this added as a regular oil!

  3. I haven’thhad a chance to “play” with this yet. But as soon as I get home I’ll be adding it tmy “Younger Glo”.

  4. I was pleasantly surprised by this oil. I really enjoy the smell of this infusion. Put a dab on bottom of my feet and sent me to dreamland! I have been diffusing in my boys bedrooms at night also, love it!

  5. Interesting, how you did the infusion, and the key constituent in the frankincense. I love lavender and frankincense, so it’s neat that you put them together. The label is really pretty too. Hopefully someday this will become part of your regular line.
