Frankincense and Myrrh Fragrance Oil Of The Week

Frankincense and Myrrh Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil Showcase

Frankincense and Myrrh is evocative of the time of year, with which it is most associated, Christmas. Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh were the rich and decadent gifts from the Three Magi to the newly arrived and honored child of God, the baby Jesus.

You will be brightly greeted with Orange, made warm with spicy Ginger and woody Amyris in the heart notes. Patchouli wraps you in its fragrant arms alongside the deeper notes of Balsam. It finishes with deeply rich Cedarwood and a Musk flourish. Perfectly reminiscent of the season.

All you need is a mince pie, a small glass of sherry, and a Christmas carol to set the scene for this evocative and delicious scent. Let it also remind you in the flurry of activity at this time of the year to take time out, breathe for a moment, recoup, and treat yourself, even if only for a minute…or two ... ok, maybe five. 

Fragrance Notes

Frankincense and Myrrh invites you into its festive aroma. The fresh, but rich, Orange evoking the Gold of the three Magi, warmed with spicy Ginger and the mysterious woodiness of Amyris. The rich, earthiness of Patchouli envelops you alongside Balsam and Cedarwood, and that alluring Musk perfectly finishes this festive masterpiece.

Make no mistake, the warmth and richness of Frankincense and Myrrh is not only for Christmas. It’s ideal for year-round use.

Grab your favorite Christmas treat and tipple, put your feet up for a few minutes, and have the most perfect moment to yourself. It’s a Fragrance Oil that we simply adore here at VINEVIDA.

VINEVIDA’S Favorite Ways To Use Frankincense and Myrrh Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil

Frankincense and Myrrh is a heartwarming Fragrance Oil that just invokes the ancient sacredness of the season.

With its warm Orange and Ginger welcome, a heart of Amyris, and base of Patchouli, Musk, Cedarwood, and Balsam, is a beautifully versatile find, it makes genderless cold process soaps and shower gels. However, it can be beautifully blended with spices and wood for more.

masculine finish. Equally, add some lighter florals like Rose Geranium for a more feminine finish. Or deepen the whole thing with Ylang Ylang and Jasmine for something heady and gorgeous.

With its warming, spicy, and woody scent notes it is suitable for scenting most of the spaces in the home. It is wonderfully suited to busier sitting rooms and dens over the Holiday season. You could use it as the base for creating a Signature Home Scent. Discover more about Signature Home Scents, in our article Layering Perfumes In The Home.

Frankincense and Myrrh Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil is a great choice for making wax-based products like melts, candles, and sachets. I like it in reed diffusers. You can also use it in all types of aromatherapy candle burners.

Frankincense and Myrrh Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil is one that you can easily blend with our other Essential Oils and Fragrance Oils for a truly unique sensation. Its bright and richly warm scent is perfect for busy rooms in the home like the den, hallways, and kitchen.

I like mixing it with citrus and spicy or woody fragrances for an incredible sensation. Try blending it with Our Version Of Amazing Grace By Philosophy and Our Version Of Rose 31 By Le Lab but it also blends wonderfully with Essential Oils like Ginger, Sweet Orange, and Cedarwood.

We have a version of Frankincense and Myrrh Soaps and candle Fragrance Oil developed especially for your Cold Air Diffusers too. Find it here.

Creative Ways To Use And Blend Frankincense and Myrrh Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil

Join me and explore some new and exciting ideas for using Frankincense and Myrrh Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil.

Since the Holidays are upon us, let us have some fun and spend a couple of carefree hours making some last-minute festive projects. 

Pot Pourri With Frankincense and Myrrh Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil

Pot Pourri With Frankincense and Myrrh Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil

It’s the time of year when many of us bring Pine Cones in to decorate the festive home. Why not add an extra dimension and add some fragrance to them? With a few other choice ingredients, you make a thoroughly festive Potpourri enhanced with Frankincense and Myrrh Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil.

This project would fall in IFRA category 10a which has safety recommendations of using no more than 4.29% in your preparation.

Simply gather together a selection of dried ingredients like Pine Cones, Cinnamon Sticks, Dried Orange Slices, whole Nutmegs broken into chunks, fragrant woods, and hard spices like Cloves. You want some of them to be visually interesting and add a pop of color too if you can.

Pile them all into a zip lock bag and add a few drops of Frankincense and Myrrh Soaps and candle Fragrance Oil, don’t go mad, you don’t want it to be wet as it could cause molding.

Shake it well and leave it overnight in the ziplock bag. Turn out into a highly decorative bowl and display it somewhere that you can benefit from the aroma. Give it a turn every couple of days to release the fragrance.

Refresh every week or so by simply repeating the process, and pop it in the bag - you can re-use the same bag every time to build up the fragrance over time. Turn it out and display it until it needs refreshing, and so on. 

Scented Centerpiece With Frankincense and Myrrh Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil

Scented Centerpiece With Frankincense and Myrrh Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil

Way back in the summer, we looked at how to create a scented flower vase in Sweet Pea Fragrance Oil Of The Week. We can apply just the same process and turn our Winter table centerpieces into amazing sensations. Whether you have silk or a fresh centerpiece, you can enhance them beautifully with Frankincense and Myrrh Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil.

Frankincense and Myrrh Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil in IFRA category 12 has no safety dilution restrictions, so you can use as much as you like.

Scenting Skills 

Try scenting the silk flowers or dab a few drops of cotton wool pad and slide them discreetly among the leaves. I did an arrangement recently where the pads would have shown and so I filled one of those floral test tubes with the Fragrance Oil and popped in natural reed to wick up the fragrance. I was able to wire it on a rose stem, beneath the rim of the vase, and the reed rose above and diffused the fragrance beautifully into the room. Of course, it did not look out of place among the flower and leaf stems.

Look at your centerpiece and get creative in a way that suits you best. Could you use my test tube hack? Could you put the oil on porous pieces of wood and incorporate them? In large arrangements like mantlepiece garlands, wooden pegs are ideal for this because you can peg them out of sight and simply refresh them as needed.

(Note: I also do this in my car, pop a drop on a wooden peg clipping it to my air vent and simply refresh as needed every couple of weeks).

I am sure whatever type of centerpiece you have in your home this festive season by adding Frankincense and Myrrh Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil you will elevate it to something incredible. Naturally, you will be the envy of all your friends and family. If you choose to divulge your fragrant secrets, it is entirely up to you.
