Frankincense Essential Oil 5ml

Frankincense Oil is extracted from the gum or resin from Frankincense or Olibanum trees - the milky white sap is extracted from the tree bark, allowed to harden into a gum resin for several days, and then scraped off in tear-shaped droplets. Frankincense Oil blends well with Lime, Lemon, Orange and other Citrus oils as well as Benzoin, Bergamot, Lavender, Pine and Sandalwood oil.

Formulating Tips: Because Frankincence contains a high percentage of waxy resins it is very likely that it won’t fully dissolve straight into alcohol when making a perfume blend. There are many ways around this including adding more frankincense than you need and then filtering off the un-dissolved portion to re-cycle in a wax-based product such as a balm or butter. Otherwise, it is sometimes possible to increase the solubility by gentle heating and/ or adding other chemically similar ingredients such as rose geranium to it to help break up the waxes.

Caution: Non toxic, non-irritant and non-sensitising. Avoid during pregnancy.
