About the Oil: This blend of Frankincense Carteri & Serrata Essential Oils has compounds that have been found to enhance overall comfort and ease in our bodies and joints, as well as for the health and beauty of our skin.

Note: Ananda Apothecary’s CO2 extracts generally include some larger molecules compared to their steam-distilled counterparts. Some may not be suitable for use in a nebulizing diffuser (unless blended with a thinner oil) – though most will be just fine in an ‘ultrasonic’ unit.
