The following summaries are based on common methods of using essential oils and do not necessarily represent every possible use. Many potential benefits may overlap with aromatic, topical, and/or internal uses.
When used under the supervision of an aromatherapist or medical practitioner, Frankincense CO2 essential oil may:
Frankincense blends well with geranium rose, vetiver, myrrh, bergamot, cinnamon. Blending with these and other oils may have a synergistic effect.
A variety of extraction methods are used to create essential oils. These methods include distillation, cold-press, and CO2 extraction. Frankincense CO2 essential oil is extracted using the CO2 method.
A more modern extraction method, Carbon Dioxide extraction is achieved through pressurizing the carbon dioxide until it becomes a liquid. The temperature used is 95-100°F compared to the 140-212°F used in distillation. The process creates a thicker essential oil that smells much closer to the original plant source. Some essential oils extracted using the CO2 method may contain additional constituents than their distilled versions.
