    Frankincense Carterii Essential Oil CO2 has a deep, sweet, and pleasant aroma. The Frankincense resin it is extracted from has traditionally been used as incense during religious rituals. Frankincense Carterii is the "traditional" Frankincense species and is the source of the most popular kind of Frankincense Essential Oil. Grown in Somalia, this variety of Frankincense Carterii has been studied for its anti-cancer properties and is also used for skin care, reducing respiratory problems, and calming anxiety. This Frankincense Essential Oil is CO2 extracted, and is therefore slightly different from the steam-distilled variety that we offer. Both versions of the oil share many of the same therapeutic benefits. However, the two different extraction processes result in oils with slightly different aromas, colors, and consistencies, and choosing one over the other is a matter of personal preference.

    Specific Benefits of CO2 Frankincense Carterii Essential Oil as follows:

    Clearing respiratory problems... Frankincense Carterii widens airways and promotes deep, calm breathing. In addition, it has expectorant properties that help clear the lungs of built up mucus or foreign substances that can cause asthma or allergic reactions. 
    Reducing anxiety... Frankincense Carterii has long been used in religious ceremonies thanks to its ability to focus the mind and promote a calm and balanced emotional state. It is great for reducing anxiety and clearing feelings of distress or self-doubt. 
    Skin care... Thanks to the anti-inflammatory compounds it contains, Frankincense Carterii can help with a range of skin issues, from rejuvenating dry, mature skin, to resolving painful rashes and topical skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.
