By promoting cell generation and fighting inflammation, boosting skin health and reversing the “normal” signs of aging, frankincense has earned the title of “King of Oils” in the aromatherapy community. Applied topically it can improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and other outward skin conditions, and it can be used to make a natural perfume or cologne.

But that's not all…

Frankincense is one of the oldest and most versatile essential oils on the planet. Frankincense oil comes from the resin of 4 different types of trees which grow in northeastern Africa and along the Arabian Peninsula.

The resin used to produce frankincense oil is very aromatic and is used in incense and perfumes. It is widely used in religious and cultural ceremonies; frankincense reduces stress, fights inflammation, improves the digestive process and can help physical wounds and scars heal quickly.

Sweet Almond Oil is one of the most popular carrier oils because of it's smoothing, nourishing, and moisturizing properties. It is a must in many DIY face cream recipes.

Coconut oil is protecting and great for most skin types as well.

How much does this make? What is the shelf life of this cream? Also am I able to make large batches of it and store safely, without losing efficacy?

Mine won’t harden at all. I don’t have a tablespoon so I used 6 teaspoons for 2 tablespoons. Mine is so runny. Did I measure something wrong?

You may have added a bit too much oil. You could try gently heating it in a double boiler and add more shea butter or beeswax or both.

If you aren't a fan of the consistency of almond oil, some or all can be swapped out for a dryer more astringent oil like Rosehip Seed Oil.

Hi, What is the state of the ingredients when initially measured? melted, dry? Just wondering because my shea butter, bees wax and Cocoa butter comes hard, so getting it into the 15ml tablespoon is a wonder lol.
