None known

Frankincense Carteri essential oil is steam distilled from a Middle Eastern or African tree’s gum resin. It has been used for thousands of years as a spiritual incense, folk medicine, and in cosmetics. 

In traditional Chinese Medicine, the gum resin is used for bruising, swelling, sores, and pain from traumatic injuries. Frankincense Carteri has the ability to rejuvenate the look of mature skin and can be used in serums or creams for the face. It is also used as an immune system support. 

Frankincense can be a dear friend during times of grief and sorrow.
The properties of Frankincense Carteri make it ideal for joint pain associated with aging or overuse. Add 5-7 drops to a teaspoon of carrier oil and smooth over achy joints or add to skin rejuvenating preparations. Diffusing Frankincense Carteri oil during meditation creates a soothing, peaceful environment. Add to a favorite unscented lotion with a drop or two of myrrh or rose absolute for the friend who is grieving a loss.

4.0 5  Pretty good!

Really nice oil. Pretty affordable for frank cart - I will say the smell isn\'t as strong I would have wished it could be. Slightly weaker smell than I\'m used to BUT it still smells the same as popular MLM companies and as of yet it has been working the same. Great quality.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

5.0 5  One of my favorites

This is my favorite frankincense that PT sells. The smell is wonderful. I injured my foot a couple of months back and I used this frankincense on it and it healed so much faster. It also really seem to help to calm my emotions during that difficult \"time of the month\".

5.0 5  WOW

Long story short I\'ve been buying and using frankincense carterii from plant therapy for the past 4 years and Im still blown away every time I open the bottle. The quality of the oil is excellent and the scent is unbelievable! I use it daily and couldn\'t imagine being without it. I\'ve used frankincense from MLM companies and have found the quality to be similar. Overall, this is a must have in my essential oil collection and will continue to purchase it from plant therapy!

5.0 5  Love it.

I\'ve used some other high quality Frank in the past, particularly on in my facial skin care routine, and ran out, and just could not afford to buy it from that company. Enter Plant Therapy\'s frankincense carteri. I love it and I can now afford to use it again!

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

5.0 5  Perfection in a bottle!

Oh what can I say about this that hasn\'t already been said by others? This frankincense is truly a treasure in a bottle and it does everything from making my skin glow to curing headaches to helping my family relax and drift off into Dreamland in the evenings. I love to combine it with PTs myrrh and just forget about the day.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
