The Uses of Frankincense Oil

Buy Frankincense Oil in Australia for Skin Benefits

Renowned for its many potential skin-enhancing properties, frankincense essential oil adds to your skincare routine. It can be used on all skin types.

Addition to Bath Bombs

Add a few drops to a warm bath or to your bath bomb recipe for a soothing, aromatic experience that can also help cleanse the skin.

Addition to Moisturisers 

You can add a few drops of frankincense oil to your daily moisturiser. Apart from adding a pleasant aroma, this essential oil can also help improve the appearance of redness associated with acne. 

Buy Frankincense Oil in Australia for Hair Benefits

In hair care, frankincense essential oil can be used alongside myrrh essential oil to improve the appearance of hair and restore its beauty. Mix about 5 drops of frankincense and myrrh essential oils with about 20 drops of coconut oil and apply this blend to your hair 30 minutes before your shampoo. Then, rinse it out with your regular shampoo. It’ll help add a bit of shine to your hair and remove any loose flakes. 

How is Frankincense Oil Extracted?

Frankincense essential oil is extracted through a meticulous steam distillation process from the resinous sap of the Frankincense tree. 

The process has to be careful, and begins by making incisions into the tree's bark, allowing the sap to ooze out and harden into resin tears. These resin tears are then collected and placed in a distillation apparatus. Steam passes through the resin, causing the volatile compounds to vaporise. The vapour then travels through a cooling system to condense back into liquid form, which is collected. The essential oil is then separated from the water, yielding pure Frankincense essential oil that has a range of uses.

Other Uses For Frankincense Oil

Aside from skin and hair benefits, frankincense oil can be used as an emulsifier with other essential and carrier oils to add a unique aroma for things such as: 

  • Massage oils
  • Diffusing and aroma scents

Frankincense Essential Oil FAQs

Can I Apply Frankincense Oil Directly On My Skin?

Yes, you can. But make sure you dilute it with a carrier oil. 

As with all essential oils, make sure you dilute them with a suitable carrier oil to make them safe for use. Essential oils are quite potent and should not be applied to the skin directly. Frankincense essential oil from N-Essentials is only meant for topical use. It should not be ingested.

Consult a medical professional if you are unsure about frankincense oil or if you’re using it while pregnant. 

To be absolutely sure, you can conduct a patch test with frankincense oil. Dilute a few drops in a carrier oil of your choice and apply a small amount to the inside of your elbow. Wait 24 hours. If there is no irritation, redness, or swelling, you can safely use frankincense oil in topical products.

How Can I Use Frankincense Oil On My Hair? 

The best way to use frankincense oil for your hair is for untangling. Simply mix a few drops with a carrier oil like coconut oil or jojoba oil

Apply to damp hair, focusing on tangled areas, to smooth and ease with gentle combing.

How to Use Frankincense Oil On Your Face?

Dilute a few drops of frankincense oil with a carrier oil from our range. You can apply this blend directly after a face wash. This will serve as a natural moisturiser. Make sure you use a lightweight carrier oil that suits your skin. 

Or you can choose to add a few drops of frankincense oil to your toner and moisturiser. 

Using Frankincense Oil as a Massage Oil

Frankincense oil can be used as a massage oil when blended with a carrier oil, which promotes viscosity. 

Adding a few drops of frankincense to your massage oil blend can enhance the overall experience by creating a pleasant aroma. 

Which Carrier Oils Go Well with Frankincense Oil? 

Coconut, sweet almond, and grapeseed oils are excellent choices as carrier oils for frankincense. 

Coconut oil is lightweight and great for hair application. Sweet almond oil is gentle and suitable for use on your body as an overall moisturiser. Grapeseed oil is lightweight and absorbs quickly into the skin, making it great for facial use. 

Can I Use Frankincense Oil Around My Home?

Frankincense oil can be used in homemade cleaning products as it adds a pleasant aroma. Whether cleaning products at home or around the office, chemical cleaners can have a strong smell that can often make people and pets uncomfortable. Adding a few drops of frankincense oil gives your products a soothing smell. 

Is Frankincense Oil Safe Around Pets and Children? 

Frankincense oil is generally safe around children and pets when used properly and diluted. However, it's important to use it in moderation and avoid direct application on or near pets, especially cats, due to their heightened sensitivity to certain smells. It should never be ingested. Always consult a healthcare professional or veterinarian before using around young children and animals.
