Frankincense CO2, Somalia
Frankincense CO2 Select Extract
Prized for millennia, Frankincense essential oil has a rich, warming aroma that provides a grounding and centering effect. Our steam distilled Frankincense from Somalia has an ethereal, clear aroma void of any harsh notes.
Frankincense essential oil is perfect for cosmetics (i.e., mature skin preparations) and aromatherapy, and is a great fixative in fine perfumery. It is renowned for sacred uses, and because it slows and deepens the breath, its application is beneficial prior to meditation.
Each Frankincense oil that we offer is a high quality oil and we recommend all three. From a traditional view, one would perhaps choose the steam distilled Frankincense essential oil, because the CO2 extraction process is newer. However, the CO2 oils offer a more outstanding fragrance for the natural perfumer.
Aromatherapy Uses: Often used for nervous depression. Very useful in skincare for mature, dry or damaged skin.
Perfumery Uses: Outstanding fixative properties
- great essential oil Review by miket
- I use frankincense CO2 oils in my ultrasonic nebulizer and applied to the arms/wrist. Really great smell, something very intoxicating and mellow, some citrus notes. (Posted on 2/21/13)
- Stunning Review by TBS
- I use this CO2 in my skin, perfume, oral, and body care blends. It really does have clean and slightly citrusy notes and it's deeply relaxing (Posted on 2/18/13)
- In Love Review by SW
- I am in love with Frankincense CO2 and I'm not sure why. Perhaps it's the power of Frankincense in general but the CO2 has become my favorite to use in my perfume blends for a clean & uplifting base note with a touch of lemon to it. I find just opening the bottle and inhaling it makes my day better. I also use it in my skincare formulas. (Posted on 2/16/13)
