  • Rub Frankincense on your hands after a long day of gardening for a warming and soothing effect. 
  • Dilute and apply topically to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections. 
  • Apply to the bottoms of feet to promote feelings of relaxation and to balance mood. 
  • Take one to two drops internally in a veggie capsule to support healthy cellular function.*


Frankincense is one of the most prized and precious essential oils due to its rich aroma and extensive health benefits. Distilled from the resin of Boswellia trees, Frankincense has been highly valued for over 5,000 years. Frankincense resin is edible and is eaten in parts of Africa to aid digestion*  

Taken internally, Frankincense promotes cellular function and the health of the joints, liver, lungs, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, and urinary tract systems.* New research shows Frankincense may support a healthy immune function response and healthy brain activity.* 

There are dozens of species of Boswellia trees, but only four produce true frankincense essential oil. dōTERRA uses all four of these species—carterii, frereana, sacra, and papyrifera—to produce CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® Frankincense essential oil that’s brimming with benefits.

Used for its anti-aging benefits since antiquity, Frankincense is extremely beneficial for skin health. Add a few drops of CPTG® Frankincense to your daily moisturizer to reduce the appearance of blemishes and rejuvenate skin.

Rich in Alpha-pinene, Frankincense is emotionally calming and stabilizing. When diffused or applied topically, Frankincense oil induces feelings of peace, satisfaction, and overall wellness. It is often used during yoga. To balance mood throughout the day, apply Frankincense Touch to your pulse points.
