Thus brand is the best on the American market. I credit this oil with helping me on the road to better health.

Exquisite Quality

I use pure essential oils for mixing into my unscented shower soap and unscented body lotion. I also use oils in a simple manner - open the bottle and quietly have several aromatic sniffs to calm me down. Frankincense is a powerful essence. Sacred. I put a tiny drop on my heart everyday. She is an ancient gift. We are all living in times of stress, and can benefit from the use of natural remedies that our ancestors used. p.s. I live in Berkeley, CA and source most of my essential oils from Source Vital in Houston! It’s because of the quality. This company was founded by a master healer and continues to be producing and performing with the same dignity. Thank you all.

Frankincense Essential Oil (Wild Crafted)

Full disclosure: I'm entirely new to essential oils and their use. To me this product appears to be of very good quality and I am quite satisfied with it overall. A friend recommended it to me for use as a facial treatment (one drop of Frankincense put into a small amount of coconut oil and then rubbed onto the face). When applied it feels good and smells pleasant, however, I have not yet experienced the improvements in my complexion that my friend has said she's experienced (e.g., reduction in dark spots and acne scars). I've only been using it a couple of weeks, so more time is needed perhaps.
The only negative I've found with the product is with the dispenser bottle itself, which outwardly appears to be as good as any used in the essential oils marketplace. That issue is the Frankincense oil is so fluid that dispensing out just one single drop (and not two or three) requires a very careful touch. For this product perhaps a smaller diameter dispensing tube in the bottle top would be in order.

Thanks for taking the time to review Frankincense Essential Oil. If you're looking to reduce dark spots, we would recommend something with a little more 'ooomph' than just Frankincense and coconut oil. With Source Vital, we would recommend making your own Facial Serum Cocktail using our Restorative Infusion with Prickly Pear and Watermelon Seed Oil. You can customize here - The Restorative Infusion contains Frankincense along with several other extracts. That combined with the added botanicals with make you a more powerful and effective product. You can use the serum in your skin care routine with your daily moisturizer, however, some people using our cocktails don't need additional moisture or hydration.

Hope this helps-

5 Star Frankincense

I came across this company online and decided to give them a try. I wasn't happy where I was getting my current oils, so I ordered Frankincense just to try it out. Long story short, I love it. I will be buying all my oils from them from now on.
