How to Use

For Aromatherapy

Add about 4-5 drops of Iryasa Frankincense oil for every 100ml (3.3 fl.oz) of water in a diffuser during your yoga or meditation session to help ground yourself and optimise the overall experience. It helps clear your mind and relax anytime of the day!

You may need to increase/decrease the number of drops depending on the size of the room and where your diffuser is kept. For instance, you'd probably need less number of drops for a smaller or less ventilated room. Since the intensity of scents are such a personal preference, we recommend that you start with less and work your way up as needed.

For Topical Application

Diluted with a suitable carrier oil such as Grapeseed oil or Jojoba oil, it makes a perfect face oil to help tone your skin, keep wrinkles & fine lines at bay and reduce hyperpigmentation.

Use 10-12 drops of Iryasa Frankincense essential oil in 30ml (1 fl.oz) of carrier oil to make a 1-1.5% dilution.

Safety Precautions

General Precautions

  • All Iryasa Essential Oils are highly concentrated - always dilute with an appropriate carrier oil before topical use

  • Not for internal use, except if directed by an expert or a qualified practitioner

  • Never use undiluted essential oils near eyes or mucous membranes

  • Store in a cool, dark and dry place

  • Keep out of reach of children

  • If pregnant, lactating or under any medication, consult your physician before use

Specific to Frankincense Essential Oil

  • We always recommend performing a patch test, especially if you are using Frankincense oil for the first time on your skin.
  • Frankincense essential oil may cause skin sensitisation in some people, especially if the oil is old or oxidised. So, always ensure that the cap is tightly fitted on the bottle and kept closed when not in use.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Frankincense serrata different from other Frankincense oils?

All Frankincense oils contain varying amounts of alpha-pinene (reduces pain & inflammation), limonene (immune stimulant), incensole acetate (reduces anxiety) and alpha-thujene (anti-bacterial, antioxidant & antimicrobial). The variations in the composition make one oil more suitable for a specific concern/end-use.

Frankincense serrata is an ideal choice to soothe swollen joints & reduce menstrual pains. It contains a high amount of alpha-thujene and works great as an antiseptic.

May I use Frankincense oil to help treat Cancer?

No. Let’s clarify this doubt and understand why so many people believe this to be true. There are tons of blogs stating that Frankincense essential oil contains Boswellic acid (an anti-tumor active ingredient), but in reality, it’s the Frankincense resin that contains it. Boswellic acid is too heavy to be volatile and is not found in the essential oil.

If you’re looking for a natural alternative to help treat cancer, while frankincense oil is not the answer, you may instead look into capsules of frankincense extract. Most importantly, we highly recommend finding a practitioner who can help & support your decision of using a combination of therapies for holistic healing.

Why is Frankincense essential oil considered the “King of Oils”?

Frankincense oil is extremely versatile and hence the name! In addition to its aromatherapy benefits, when applied topically, it provides anti-ageing benefits - supports skin health, evens skin tone, fades hyperpigmentation and promotes cellular regeneration.

Dilution Guide

Most websites/blogs mention about diluting essential oils before topical application. While this is correct, it is not sufficient!

Use the guide below to get started on your DIY blending journey.

Interpreting the charts

Step 1: As per age group, please take note of the recommended and maximum dilution percentages.

Step 2: Based on the amount of carrier oil, you can find the corresponding number of essential oil drops to be used to achieve the dilution you require e.g., for 1% dilution in 30ml of carrier oil, use 8 drops of same/different essential oils.


Always perform a 24 hour period patch test at the recommended dilution levels or lesser, as per the age group to check for any allergic reaction or skin sensitivities.

While the dilution percentages work for most of our essential oils, we strongly recommend that you read the safety precautions listed for each oil before you craft the blend.
