Our Organic Frankincense Carterii Essential Oil is steam distilled from a Middle Eastern or African tree’s gum resin. For thousands of years, this aromatic resin has been used as a spiritual incense, in folk medicine, and in cosmetics. In traditional Chinese Medicine, the gum resin is used for bruising, swelling, sores, and pain from traumatic injuries. 

Frankincense Carterii essential oil has many benefits, but especially for the skin. It has the ability to rejuvenate the look of mature skin and can be used in serums or creams for the face. It can reduce the appearance of mature skin and scars, as it gently encourages your body’s natural ability to repair skin cells. Hydrating, nourishing, and sweet smelling, it will also help to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, blemishes, and age spots. 

The respiratory and immune system also benefit from this aromatic essential oil. This oil is high in alpha-pinene, and other monoterpenes, making it a great immune support. It supports clear breathing and gives a kickstart to your immune function, while clearing the air of harmful germs and bacteria when diffused. 

In aromatherapy, Frankincense Carterii is loved for its smooth, sweet, relaxing aroma. It is especially helpful for those looking for a sense of tranquility and focus. The rich, grounding fragrance soothes sadness and grief, while quieting the mind.

What’s the Difference Between Frankincense Serrata and Carterii?

The differences between all Frankincense Essential Oils (for there are four!) are difficult to pinpoint. All of them offer very similar therapeutic properties, though with differing chemistry. The primary difference lies in the aroma. 

  • Frankincense Carterii: This is the most well-known and commonly used Organic Frankincense Essential Oil. Frankincense Carterii has an intoxicatingly smooth, relaxing aroma that is deep, rich, and grounding. It is particularly prized for its skin rejuvenating and healing abilities and can be used in serums or creams for the face. 
  • Frankincense Serrata: The aroma of Organic Frankincense Serrata is more sweet and delicate than other types of Frankincense, with a hint of pine. Organic Frankincense Serrata Essential Oil is used to treat chronic ulcers, ringworm, and menstrual pain. The anti-inflammatory properties of Frankincense serrata make it ideal for joint pain.
