Description, Benefits, & Pairings
Fresh, woody, balsamic, fruity and slightly spicy, frankincense essential oil is said to have a centering effect on the emotions and has been traditionally used for meditation and spiritual growth. The oil is relaxing and great for mature skin, making it a great addition to homemade lotions and soaps. Use Frankincense essential oil with soap making supplies to create refreshing soaps, or use an aroma lamp to heat the oil and infuse it into your home.
Frankincense essential oil blends well with citrus oils, bergamot, neroli, lavender, clary sage, patchouli, vetiver, and sandalwood, and it is used very effectively with jojoba oil. Browse Wellington’s essential oils to create your own unique blends.

About Essential Oils
Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential oils are generally extracted by distillation, typically by using steam or other processes, including expression or solvent extraction and cold pressing. Our essential oils are most often used in soap production and aroma lamps for aromatherapy but can also be used for adding scents to incense sticks and household cleaning products.
