Frankincense oil with amethyst and craft bottles

3 | Frankincense

Our frankincense comes from the resin of scraggly boswellia carteri trees in Somalia. The resin is collected from the bark of the tree while it’s still growing and then steam distilled into the luxurious essential oil that we’ve come to know and love.

Frankincense is from the French word ‘Franc’ meaning ‘luxuriant’ or ‘real incense’. In ancient times, it was used by the ancient Egyptians as an offering to the gods and as a rejuvenating face mask. Frankincense is a common fragrance used in perfumes since the beginning of history. Use this potent essential oil to improve the appearance of damaged skin or bring balance and peace through meditation.

Apply topically in a 2-5% dilution, or diffuse for a relaxing experience.

Why Essential Oils are Good for Skin

In order to better understand why essential oils are good for your skin it helps to have an understanding of the properties of essential oils and how they interact with your skin. Arguably the most important property of essential oils when it comes to interacting with your skin is its lipophilicity. That means that it is able to dissolve in fats, oils, and non-polar solvents. It makes sense, given the fact that the word “oil” is included in the very name of the substance.

So why does this matter? Think about the purposes of your skin. It’s intended to be a barrier that prevents harmful substances from getting into your body. It’s also meant to keep everything in your body. On a much smaller scale, one of the jobs it has is to retain water. Sure, you sweat some water out, but the majority of it stays underneath your skin. In order for it to do that, it needs to be hydrophobic (repels water or scared of water—whichever makes sense to you) in nature, which means it generally tends to prevent water from passing through. In the case of your skin, it’s not only hydrophobic, but also lipophilic, which means that essential oils are more readily able to move through your skin and be absorbed by it.
