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 in a tablespoon 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.

5.0 5  I hated frankinsense until this oil

I have always hated the smell of frankinsense....until I met this oil. I love this oil and use it in my skincare. It\'s a lovely woodsy smell and I\'ve become very fond of it. It works amazingly well in my anti wrinkle face cream. I also use geranium bourbon from this company and it is equally a wonderful quality.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

5.0 5  Gets used regularly

I love this oil. I diffuse it daily. Both my husband and I use it for pain management and I also add it to my face moisturizer at night. I have all the different frankincense oils but this one is my favorite smell. I need to stockpile this stuff because we go through it like no other!

5.0 5  A must have!

I have all 3 Frankincense offered by PT but this one is my favorite. The scent is lovely. I have been using the Carteri oil diluted with the organic coconut oil for a couple of months. My facial skin has never looked better. Fine lines around my eyes have diminished and I keep getting compliments on my sin tone!! That\'s not even the best part. I have a small scaley spot on the side of my face that has been there for 5 years. From time to time it would scab up and of course I would pick it. The whole process would start all over. My dermatologist has had it tested and tried to freeze it off 3 times. Nothing worked, until now. It spot is GONE!! Completely gone for over a month!! That alone has so sold on this particular OIL and I will never be without it!! In one word, AMAZING!

5.0 5  My go to facial oil

First, my skin profile: Sensitive, dry, not-quite 40.) \n\nI bought this in tandem with Frankincense Serrata. I previously had a Frank blend from another company, so it took a bit to get use to the unique smells. This is my go to facial oil, mixed with the Serrata, it leaves my skin glowing and smelling lovely. I\'ve never had any issues or sensitivities using it. Definitely recommend!

3.0 5  Its the smell

I have a hard time tolerating this,oil, but tolerate it I do. All Frank's are good for my moods and peaceful feelings but the smell reminds me of wires burning.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
