Frankincense and Myrrh Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

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.

Blends well with: Fraser Fir, Egyptian Amber, Spiced Honey and Tonka, Matcha and Bergamot

Alternative branding ideas: Sexy Church

Suggested colors: Brown, Gold, Ivory

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.

*Note - This fragrance was tested at a 5% fragrance load. With the release of IFRAs 49th Amendment this fragrance can now be used at 3.54% to remain IFRA compliant.

Not familiar with the scent of Frankincense and Myrrh I was pleasantly surprised! Very nice!!

As a scent, it's ok. As Frank n Myrrh, it's just meh... Frank n Myrrh is a manly, musky scents. In my short time with Candle Science, I bought 20 fragrances, and all of them that tend to me be deemed "masculine" are very weak, sweet, and feminine. I've only smelled this out the bottle. When I make the candle, I'll adjust my rating based on the CT and HT. Frank n Myrrh, Egyptian amber, Sandalwood, and Mountain Pine... All are traditionally masculine smelled, yet CS gas turned them all into sweet candy, feminine scents. I don't appreciate that.

The hot throw will fill up a room immediately. It is a really nice musky holiday scent. In 464, the oil can sweat easier than others, so I tend to add it at a little higher temp and use less fragrance than with other oils. I look forward to using this one every winter!

Smells nice

This was s very much a soft powdery musk. As someone who works primarily with EOs. This unfortunately doesn’t smell like frankincense or myrrh. A nice masculine scent just not frankincense and myrrh.

I purchased this blend because these are 2 of the gifts that the Wise men presented to Jesus at born. The fragrance is warming and delightful. My customers will be it in any product I make with it.
Truly my best seller, to me first

Very clean smelling! Love it.

Great scent. Quick question, it's safe for soap, but does that include laundry detergent?

Best seller

I got a sample of this scent with my order while back and I instantly loved it. So, I ordered a 16 oz bottle, made 4 apothecary jar candles just to see how it goes at a local farmers market. I sold every single one of them the same day. So, I am definitely making more and will make them available on my online store.

Not sure what happened here

I always buy my essential oils or fragrance oils here and I just reordered my frankincense and cedarwood. Neither of them are remotely the same fragrance. I noticed others had commented about the same experience. It's completely unusable because my customers will know the difference. Sorry, Candlescience I will have to go elsewhere if you can't fix the problem.

Too Powder Heavy

Love the strength of the fragrance but too heavy on the powder note. Can you back off on it?

This is one of my surprise best selling scents! It’s certainly become one of mine.

It’s got amazing throw in beeswax/coconut but it’s the best in Sozo Luxe Wax. The CT is only exceeded by the ht!
