Frankincense Essential Oil
Frankincense (Boswellia carterii) essential oil is a top choice for meditation, respiratory support, and skin care. It can help calm and focus the mind. It is considered a safer respiratory oil for those sensitive to eucalyptol-rich products. We like to use it in chest rub recipes. In skin care, it tones the skin when diluted with a light lotion or carrier oil (use 0.5% dilution or less on face).
