An organic essential oil. Boswellia carteri. Country of Origin Morocco.
Frankincense is processed from gum of Somalian origin. This tree can grow with very little soil in dry and desolate conditions. The word frankincense comes from the term “franc encens,” which means 'quality incense' in old French.
It’s believed that the oil transmits messages to the limbic system of the brain, which is known to influence the nervous system. It can be used to help reduce acne blemishes, the appearance of large pores, prevent wrinkles, and even helps lift and tighten skin to naturally slow signs of ageing. When inhaled, it’s been shown to reduce heart rate and slow down breathing which is said to put you in a ‘trance like state’ - for this reason it is used in churches as incense.
It has anti-anxiety and depression- reducing abilities as well as the ability to strengthen skin and improve its tone and elasticity. It can also be beneficial for fading of stretch marks, surgery scars or marks associated with pregnancy, and for healing dry or cracked skin.
Frankincense oil can help reduce symptoms associated with menstruation and menopause by balancing hormone levels.

We do not use boxes as even though they look lovely there is really no on-use for them and we can’t bare the waste! We do however, supply simple high quality, black, unbranded bags with our own swing tag attached. This is lovely if you are giving Angelico Serum as a gift. You can of course state in the NOTES BOX when checking out that you do not want the bag. If you do not specify, you will receive a bag.
We have to protect the glass during transit so we use acid free tissue paper in blue which looks beautiful. We can also add a handwritten card if you are sending as a gift. Simply mention the words you require in NOTES BOX when you check out.
