Rosehip oil is known for its remarkable effects on the skin, with an affinity for aging, wrinkled and weathered skin. Rose hip oil is prized for its ability to renew the skin and add radiance and youthful moistness. It can be very well utilized for skin discomfort, irritation or redness, as it is quickly absorbed by the skin. It is an important ingredient in cosmetic products such as facial creams and body lotions. Our rosehip seed oil is the base of our fan-favorite and deeply healing Flower of the Sun Essential Oil Blend.
Rosehip oil is extracted from the seeds of the fruit of rosa canina, also known as Rosa moscheta, that grows wild in the southern Andes. Our rosehip seed oil is wild-harvested and certified organic. Our rosehip oil is then cold pressed and filtered, maintaining all its natural properties and rich nutrients. This is how the rosehip seed oil retains its original, naturally brilliant, clear orange color. This rosehip oil should be kept refrigerated.
We like to use our cold-pressed, nutrient-rich rosehip oil as a carrier oil for our daily massage oil. Combined with small amounts of essential oils of lavender or pure rose oil, or used alone, our rosehip seed oil is a fantastic moisturizer for the skin. Use rosehip seed oil for treatment of skin conditions such as scars, burns, and eczema by massaging it directly into the effected area regularly. This rosehip oil should be kept refrigerated.

Known for promoting calmness and uplifting the mood, mandarin essential oil is a close cousin of tangerine. Mandarin is so mild and effective it can be used safely in aromatherapy for every member of the family.

You can reach for your mandarin any time you want to sweeten the bouquet of your diffuser blend. Add it to your skin care formulations to smooth the skin and add natural beauty.
Our mandarin oil is expeller-pressed from certified organic mandarin peels for Floracopeia in South Africa.
Mandarin essential oil can be applied topically, as a compress, in the bath, through direct inhalation, or used with a diffuser. Please use safety precautions, because citrus and the sun are incompatible. Citrus oils, including mandarin, are phototoxic, and can damage your skin if rubbed on the skin and exposed to sunlight.

Mandarin essential oil can be applied topically, as a compress, in the bath, through direct inhalation, or diffuser. Because of its potential phototoxic effects, it should always be diluted and dermal applications avoided before exposure to sunlight.
Native to southern China and the Far East, mandarin oil was brought to Europe in 1805 and was carried to America soon thereafter. The name "mandarin" is said to come from the fact that it was a traditional gift amongst the Mandarin people of China.

Frankincense is among the most widely used of all essential oils. Frankincense oil is revered for its powerfully uplifting and clarifying effects for the body and mind. When diffused in your home, it provides protection for you and your family, encourages healthy moods and will turn the fragrance of your home into that of a temple.
Among frankincense's many attributes is its use as a spiritual aid for ritual and prayer or meditation. Used in worship since time immemorial for the way it blends its many healing powers with an intoxicating fragrance, frankincense can properly be said to belong to the family of sacred scents.
A few drops of this high-quality frankincense oil can be applied to the palms, rubbed together, and inhaled. Frankincense essential oil can be mixed with a carrier oil such as coconut or rosehip seed and applied to help the body stay limber and relaxed. It is particularly helpful for those who practice yoga.
The benefits for the mind are many, and for the body Boswellia oil encourages renewed luster to the skin, rendering it ideal for skin care. Frankincense is used cosmetically to support and nourish dry and aging skin.
This frankincense papyrifera oil is distilled for Floracopeia from gum resins wild-harvested from the arid, mountainous regions of Ethiopia.
Floracopeia is proud to offer a large selection of the highest quality frankincense oils sourced from diverse locations and distillers. To assist you in making your choice about which species might be the best for you, we offer the following information.
As they all have very similar therapeutic functions, all of the frankincense oils can be used interchangeably, they can also be blended together. The primary difference between the frankincenses is in their olfactory characteristics, which can be summed up as:
Frankincense can be applied topically, as a compress, in the bath, through direct inhalation, or diffuser.
A universally known incense with a spicy, balsamic, instantly recognizable odor, the aromatic resin of frankincense has been at the center of ritual practice, medical use and commerce in India, the Arabian peninsula and North Africa since ancient times. This plant has been a true gift to the human community, serving variously not only as medicine but as a source of dyes and cosmetics, along with its use as air-freshener, mosquito repellent, and essential source of livelihood. Its ancient use in ritual and temple offerings across religions, both historic and modern day, attest to its powerful spiritual attributes.
The essential oil of Boswellia papyrifera contains more than two hundred molecular compounds, which give it a very complex bouquet and endow it with a rainbow of applications. It is derived from oleo gum resins which function as the immune and defense support for the frankincense tree, and in its essential oil form, passes onto us these same precious properties.
It is a natural fumigant, and fumigation with frankincense has long had the dual effect of both disinfecting public spaces and elevating the spirit. Frankincense is effective as a mouthwash.
Boswellia seedlings are slow growing and are susceptible to livestock grazing before they are able to reach a more mature state. Papyrifera in particular is becoming endangered and is need of conservation due to extensive farming, overgrazing and poor harvesting practices. Once established, frankincense trees can live for at least a hundred years. Their flowers are popular with bees, and the long flowering period from October to February is helpful for bee colony maintenance.
Frankincense was included in the gifts presented by the wise men to the infant Christ together with gold and myrrh. It was introduced into church ceremonies at the beginning of Christianity in Europe during the Middle Ages. About 500 tons of frankincense were used by the Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches per year. Burning frankincense in churches had hygienic functions as well as spiritual importance. People of the Middle Ages lived in extremely unsanitary conditions, so the fumigation of churches helped reduce contagion through atmospheric purification.

Frankincense is non-toxic, non-irritant and non-sensitizing. Do not take Boswellia papyrifera essential oil internally.
Copaiba oleoresin is used extensively in South American and Amazonian medicine. This resin supports the health of the skin and promotes comfort in the body and joints. For its part, nettle has been used medicinally for thousands of years and is regarded as an excellent herb for supporting the body’s natural inflammatory response. Our unique Nettle & Copaiba Blend is ideal for helping to soothe, heal and renew the skin. Copaiba, also known as copal in resin form, has been used traditionally to treat red, itchy, watery skin conditions as well and wounds. Both of the components of this co-distillation lend their use to dispelling the discomforts of a tired, sore or over-active body.
