11 | Frankincense

Frankincense is from the French word ‘Franc’ meaning ‘luxuriant’ or it could be ‘real incense’. Also known as Olibanum, Frankincense was used by the ancient Egyptians as an offering to the gods and as a rejuvenating face mask.

Frankincense originally comes from the scraggly Boswellia carterii tree originally grown in the Middle East. Harvesters slash the bark of the tree, and, over time, a sticky resin oozes out of the tree. Our Somalian frankincense oil is steam-distilled from frankincense resin.

Frankincense essential oil is used to improve the appearance of damaged skin. It is also commonly used to bring balance and peace through meditation. Apply topically in a 2-5% dilution, or diffuse for a deep, relaxing effect.

12 | Wintergreen

The Gaultheria procumbens plant has a sweet, candy-like scent that continues into its essential oil, which is used to flavor candies and carbonated beverages. Our Wintergreen essential oil is steam-distilled from Wintergreen leaves grown in India.

Wintergreen is the “fire” in Fire & Ice–our muscle blend–and has a fantastic warming ability. Diffuse into the air or apply topically in 2-5% dilution (18-45 drops of oil to a 30ml bottle of carrier oil).
