We are thrilled to introduce three new essential oils into our collection: Frankincense, Juniper, and Sandalwood. These oils are now available for custom scenting, and can be purchased in bulk 5ml or 1ml bottles. To help you get acquainted, here is some background on these pure organic plant essences:
Use: Frankincense essential oil is one of the most widely used therapeutic oils across the world, with a place in everything from religious ceremonies to cosmetic products. Frankincense is astringent, tonic, and antiseptic. (Its antiseptic properties are enhanced when the oil is burned, which is why it is an ingredient often found in incense.) In our Aromatherapy line, you can find Frankincense in the blend 7:Crown.
Where It Comes From: Frankincense oil is produced via steam distillation of the gum resin of the Frankincense olibanum trees of India and Africa. Our frankincense is Certified Organic from India.
Fragrance Notes: There are several species of frankincense trees, and while the aromatherapeutic uses are uniform throughout all oil varieties, the scent of the oils can vary greatly depending on the particular variety of tree used. The scent of our frankincense is piney with strong citrus notes, which makes it blend well with other citrus oils. It is a lighter oil and can be used as a middle note in natural fragrance blending.
