Given that along with its ability to calm the mind makes it a winner for our fast paced over stressed society.

Frankincense Diffuser Recipe



Fill bottle about 3/4 full with your essential oil(s), canola oil (sweet almond, jojoba also work well) and vodka. Stir or shake gently, add reeds and you’re almost done.

After the reeds are saturated, turn them over so the dry end is in the bottle. Wash your hands after handling the oil soaked ends of the reeds.

Frankincense Massage Oil Recipe


• 1/4 cup Jojoba Oil (cold pressed)
• 2 drops Lavender Essential Oil
• 2 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
• 5 drops Frankincense Essential Oil


• 1/4 cup Jojoba Oil (cold pressed)
• 2 drops Lavender Essential Oil
• 2 drops Geranium Essential Oil
• 5 drops Frankincense Essential Oil


NOTE: Make your massage oil two or three days before the planned massage.

Place ingredients into an amber or cobalt bottle large enough to hold the oil. Cap the bottle and mix ingredients by gently shaking.

After 24 hours, uncap bottle and give it the sniff test. If the fragrance is too strong for your taste, add 1 to 1.5 tablespoons (15 to 22ml) more carrier oil. Again shake gently.

Frankincense Face Cream



Add the aloe gel to the oil and whisk to mix thoroughly. Set this aside.
In a double boiler, heat just enough to melt beeswax and lanolin.

Stir in distilled water and keep stirring until mixture thickens.

Add mixture to jars and lightly cap until mixture completely cools then tighten caps.
