I’ve never tried to make it, but maybe in you grind up some frankincense and add it to a carrier oil (cocoanut or olive oil) and let it infuse for a while, it may work. Sounds like a good experiment to try.

I have not tried it but I have read exactly what @Ostara posted. Think she hit the proverbial nail on the head with her response. :purple_heart::purple_heart:

I’m going to try it. I know I have some frankincense around here somewhere. I need to organize so I can find things.

There’s an all-purpose anointing oil blend that might be useful:

  • 1 drop of cedarwood essential oil (Cedrus atlantica) for consecration
  • 1 drop of clove essential oil (Syzygium aromaticum) to dispel negativity
  • 2 drops of frankincense essential oil (Boswellia carteri) for purification
  • 2 tablespoons of carrier oil

Curiosity finally got the better of me and I had to google it to see if that was indeed an option and it is!


These are instructions for making an oil infusion of Frankincense
(not Frankincense essential oil, that’s a more complicated process)

To begin the process, start by grinding the frankincense resin into a fine powder. Then, combine it with a carrier oil of your choice, such as blackseed oil, to create a potent mixture. Heat the mixture gently and allow it to steep for a period of time, allowing the frankincense resin to infuse into the carrier oil. Once the steeping process is complete, filter the oil to remove any impurities, resulting in a pure and fragrant frankincense oil. (Source)


A different and a bit more detailed instructions

  1. Grind the frankincense in a pestle and mortar. You may want to freeze beforehand as this makes it less sticky.
  2. Weigh your oil in a glass beaker or jar and add the ground resin. Place in a pot of hot water and bring to a simmer. I placed mine directly on a hot plate. The temperature should be no more than 100 C. Mine was heated to approximately 85-90 C. You can leave it for between 45 minutes to 3 hours.
  3. Remove from the heat. Now, you can choose to leave it to steep in the resin for a few days before filtering or filter immediately. Leaving for a while will allow the sediment to settle, making for an easy pour.
  4. Filter the infusion through a cheese cloth tied to a beaker with a rubber band, or you can use a coffee filter.
  5. Bottle and enjoy. (Source)

I have heated Frankincense on the stove before. Don’t use one of your good pots. The stickiness of the resin sticks to the pot. I now have a pot that I don’t use for food. Lol!
