Frankincense is one of my go to oils for multiply uses, it also blends well with so many other oils. I like to add to my usual face cream to help the dreaded wrinkles lol!

This has to be my top favourite (among many!) amphora oil. It's just a beautiful, uplifting smell. It's quite musty, but I love that.

This is the first time I have tried frankincense oil and it will certainly not be my last. This has been very soothing added to my home made face lotions - I particularly like it added to raspberry seed and organ oil serum first thing in the morning. Very good quality, and I must say that I also really like Amphora's packaging. The clean white and clear labels are simple and very elegant.

I like this essential oil however, it smells a bit like antiseptic unlike some other essential oils when it smells spicy and smokey?!!!
