Product Brochure:

Frankincense Carteri product sheet

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.

3.0 5  Not my favorite Frank

I love the therapeutic properties and benefits that Frankincense has to offer, and I think it's fantastic that PT has 3 different variations. I personally do not like the smell of Frank Carteri on its own (a little too resinous for my preference), and as a result I find myself not using it even in my blends... I much prefer Frank Frereana

recommend  No, I wouldn't recommend this to a friend.

5.0 5  Confused

I love this oil. I bought it to use for my skin, and then I realized I bought the wrong one as everyone seems to say that frereana is the one that is best for skin. I am confused because all of the synergies that are for skin seem to contain carterii and none of them contain frereana that I can tell. Can anyone clear that up for me? thanks so much.

5.0 5  Amazing essential oil!

I recently purchased this oil and have added it to my skin care regimen along with coconut oil and Shea butter. It makes my skin silky smooth and I have noticed it has even out my skin tone too. It’s great for any skin issues. I also diffuse with frankincense and love the scent when combined with other oils.

5.0 5  Healed a Lip Wound

I just got this and 2 days later my 4 year old who fell and bit a hole in his lip. It healed in 4 days (still a slight scab left at the 4 day mark) with applying 4x a day at 3% diluted in a roll on. It also left minimal scarring and he said it didnt burn (until his scab fell off on accident). Definitely my go to for wounds (at least until my next purchase comes!). Plus it smells fantastic! I'm sure I will put this to use for other things, as well!
