Description

Frankincense essential oil has a rich, smooth, and slightly citrusy scent. The relaxing aroma made it a precious oil for centuries. It's considered sacred in many cultures. It is sourced from the resin of the Boswellia carterii tree, which is found in Somalia. 

This recipe is a fantastic hydrator. The combination of avocado oilkokum butter, and cera bellina wax create a balm that’s firm at room temperature but softens with body heat. Thanks to the cera bellina wax, it has a slight gel-like texture. It’s perfect for extra dry areas of the skin, including hands, feet, and knees.
