All About Frankincense & Myrrh Co-Distillation

A unique treasure just in time for the holidays, Frankincense and Myrrh Co-Distillation combines two of the most notorious essential oils for a one-of-a-kind synergy of ancient oleoresins. Using wildcrafted Frankincense Sacra from Oman and wildcrafted Myrrh from Somalia, the two resins are mixed together and then slowly hydro-distilled in copper alembic stills. The end result is a deeply grounding resinous, amber-wood aroma with balsamic lemony notes.

The essential oils of Frankincense and Myrrh have an incredibly rich history that is supported by both textual and archeological evidence. Both were consistently used for a wide variety of ailments and at one point in time were considered even more valuable than gold. Today, we can benefit from their relaxing properties by diffusing this co-distillation or adding a drop or two to aromatherapy jewelry and enjoying the aroma throughout the day. Frankincense and Myrrh oils are also powerhouses when it comes to healthy, glowing skin. Blend Frankincense and Myrrh Co-Distillation with skin-loving carrier oils, like Jojoba, Argan, or Grapeseed, and use topically to support youthful-looking skin.

Frankincense & Myrrh Co-Distillation is an Oil of the Month offering throughout the month of December. Check back with us soon to see if we have added it to our collection.
