REVISION NOTICE: It is our policy to notify customers if any part of a fragrance was changed for any reason. As of April 21, 2020 our Frankincense and Myrrh was revised to meet our stringent safety standards to remove ingredients on the Prop 65 list. The original strength and fragrance characteristics have been preserved. To see details of the previous version, click here.

Derived from tree sap, frankincense and myrrh are fragrant resins highly valued for incense and perfumes. Our Frankincense and Myrrh fragrance oil captures the essence of these enduring scents used for millennia. Hints of citrusy bergamot and amber open up to a heart of resinous myrrh and frankincense. The wood and incense notes are softened by powder and oud in the base. Olibanum, patchouli, and coriander seed essential oils reinforce the earthiness of Frankincense and Myrrh in candles and melts. Body scrubs, lotions, and soap made with this scent give an elegant and unique twist to your handmade creations.

This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils, including coriander seed, cumin, lemon, orange, patchouli, and olibanum.

We did experience slight acceleration but no separation. The batter came to a light trace quickly and started to thicken with some hand stirring. Overall the batter remained workable and poured smoothly into the mold. After 24 hours, the soap had discolored to a dark yellowish-brown color. The scent was light but still true to the out of bottle character. We did observe that the soap reached a partial gel. After 30 days, the soap has discolored to a brown shade and the scent was slightly stronger than after the initial cut. This fragrance would be ideal for a design technique that requires a thick trace.

THANK YOU for making cleaner scents. Most DO want and need cleaner scents. I love this blend and use it in many different combinations that we make.

Owner of small, independent candle company

I won't even try this...the original frankincense and myrrh was a consistent seller at Christmas and a fav of a personal friend....the "re-makes" of established oils is UNNERVING. Cranberry Marmalade...Carmelized Praline...Pumpkin Souffle...Red Currant... So many beautiful fragrances, strong in soy wax.....GONE. I EMPLORE Candle Science to STOP changing all the formulations. You are NOT in CA. The majority of your customers don't care about CA rules/regulations. If you want to cater to CA -- FINE. But offer BOTH!! A win/win for everyone.

Not what I expected

I thought it smelled very perfumey, I didn’t get any of the frankincense notes, I thought it would be mote like the resins I burn, very different.

like the scent!

I love the scent but I didn't go for it because of the Prop 65 list. I'm glad that CS revised to meet the safety standard. But, I hope it's also available to include as a free sample. I was going to order some supply and to include this new revised scent as a free sample but it wasn't available there. Same as Calla Lily 1 oz Bottle sample. Can you please include this to the free sample list? :)


Absolutely love this scent! Great CT and HT! Also nice mixed with other scents


I love this fragrance. I can’t stop smelling it. It has a very therapeutic effect to it.

Bring the Old Fragrance Back Please

Absolutely loved the former fragrance oil that CS made for their Frankincense & Myrrh. Sadly the new one is just awful. It smells like a cheap cologne from a stand in the mall. Please bring back the old formula! It was so lovely. This one is terrible and I would recommend finding a Frankincense oil elsewhere.

Absolutely intoxicating

I bought a 1 oz bottle to make cold process soap. I fell in love with this scent . It is intoxicating, it’s strong and just a wonderful winter scent! I came back and bought a 4 oz bottle. Can’t wait to make more soap and candles with this in the fall!!

A bit weak

I love the small so much but there’s not too much of a hot throw.

my fav

best seller for my chakra candles @soysoulections candle company.

Not good

The new version of this is super perfumey. will have to find a new supplier for this scent. I miss the muskiness of the scent.

Arabella Crystals
Diptyque ‘Opoponax’ Dupe

This has great cold and hot throw and smells very high quality. It’s an exact dupe of Diptyque’s Opoponax, which isn’t for everyone, but I love it — powdery, perfumey, narcotic. Will be ordering this in bulk, thanks!


This NEW version of Frankincense and Myrrh is terrible. I mean absolute garbage. It’s nothing at all like the previous version. It’s too subtle (meaning you can hardly smell it). Absolute garbage. I hate writing bad reviews but people need to know. CS you completely whiffed on this one. You took one of my best selling fragrances and made it obsolete. I’ll have to look elsewhere now.

Soap Maker

This fragrance oil had me sweating in my cold process soap making. I had a lot of separation, discoloration, and not so much acceleration. I will try to use again at a lower usage rate. I used it at 4%, whew chile... I was scared! I'm waiting to unmold, I'll update if everything comes out okay. Right now it looks like a gel phase of a hot process.

3 Stars because I love the smell, but not sure if I'll buy this oil again.

Great to mix with other scents

I haven't had much success with frankincense & myrrh alone in my candles, BUT it is wonderful to mix with other fragrances. It converts other fragrances into darker more sensual aromas. My favorite combination so far has been with apples & maple bourbon.

Nothing like the original

I'm so bummed. The original scent smelled more masculine like cologne and this one smells smells like black pepper upon nose testing. It's very different and I'm sure my customers are going to notice. This was for one of my best sellers and now I'm going to have to discontinue until I find the right scent.

Scent is too much different

Not a fan of the NEW SCENT. It is too much different. The old scent was in one of my best selling candles. I have been asked what I have done to my products, and I am super disappointed. They aren't the same, don't smell the same at all. I'm just hoping it doesn't affect my sales volume/ratings. :(

Spicy & Delicately Sweet with Woody Undertones

If you have burnt incense resin on charcoal you are familiar with the spicy, deep and delicately sweet with woody undertones of this ancient ritual. This FO captures the sweet, earthy and aromatic fragrance of both frankincense and myrrh and is true to its name. Poured as a stand-alone candle in IGI 6006 wax this FO performed great! I also blended this with Nag Champa + Patchouli + Frankincense and Myrrh (all three FO from CS and mixed in equal parts) = PEACE. Many of us are still under stay at home orders by our states, and this soothing blend of ethereal incense and earthly resin conjures the perfect space to escape everything that is going on in the world and just be at peace. This was a great way to reflect on the more peaceful aspects of the day. Be well and stay safe!
