For glowing skin and grounding energy, there’s nothing quite like Frankincense Carterii Essential Oil. Also known as Olibaum Oil, Frankincense is steam distilled from the resin of Boswellia trees and is a rich source of an anti-inflammatory healing compound called alpha-pinene. Frankincense Carterii is also high in d-limonene, which reduces muscle pain and stiff joints.

There are three types of Frankincense Essential Oil commonly used in aromatherapy and skincare: Frankincense Carterii, Frankincense Serrata, and Sacred Frankincense. Each type has a slightly different aroma and different benefits. This variety, Frankincense Carterii, offers a medium-strength woody aroma that’s warm and balsamic, with a citrusy top note that’s slightly spicy and sweet.

Frankincense Carterii is often used in skincare products to promote a brighter, more toned complexion. It’s a natural astringent that helps control oily skin, reduce inflammation, and fades discoloration and scars. Try adding 1-3 drops to your daily cleanser or moisturizer, or dilute with a carrier oil like Jojoba Oil to use topically on adult skin.

Frankincense Carterii Essential Oil is also perfect for diffusing because it eliminates odor-causing bacteria and inspires a calm, tranquil atmosphere. Its earthy aroma helps you feel safe and supported while reducing feelings of loneliness, anxious thoughts, and grief. Many people also use Frankincense Carterii in aromatherapy to support mental focus and deeper meditation.
