Frankincense oil helps some people with their skin health. It’s used in anti-wrinkle and anti-scar creams and might also help with acne. If you want to make a frankincense skin cream at home with organic, quality ingredients, you can. It’s easy and fun. Here’s a recipe to get you started, and you can adjust it per your specific skin needs.
- In a glass bowl, combine shea butter or coconut oil and essential oil. Use a hand mixer to beat together until mixture has whipped consistency.
- Store in glass container and use small amount as needed.
Note: mixture might melt if room temperature gets over 75° or so. Refrigerate to re-set and re-whip as needed.
* Don’t choose an oil with packaging that says “fragrance oil” or “perfume oil.” Look for “pure” or “100% essential oil.”
** You may add additional essential oils that have skin healing properties, such as lavender or myrrh. Decrease frankincense and add other oils to make 20 drops total.
