Enjoying a bath soak with frankincense essential oil is a good way to relax at the end of a busy day.
Aside from being incredibly soothing, it offers other benefits that make it perfect for baths. Here’s why adding this natural powerhouse to your bath is a good choice.
What Is Frankincense Essential Oil?
Frankincense oil is derived from the resin of the Boswellia tree. It is tagged as the “King of Essential Oils” due to its beneficial properties, including its calming effect during aromatherapy and meditation.
Frankincense oil is often used with oil diffusers to enhance the mood in a room, typically for massages or meditation. It is also a key ingredient in many of our bath soaks here at Better Bath Better Body.

How Do You Use Frankincense Oil In Your Bath?
Frankincense oil has long been known for its soothing qualities. But did you know it can also be used to create a relaxing, spa-like experience right in your own bathroom?
Here are the steps to using it in your bath:
- Before using frankincense oil, always do a patch test. Follow the instructions on the label, too.
- Mix frankincense oil with a carrier oil, such as coconut oil or sweet almond oil, before adding it to your bath. This can help to distribute the oil evenly.
- Add a few drops of the blended oil directly to your bath water. It is recommended to use 3-5 drops of oil per bath.
- Add your bath salts or bath bombs, and enjoy your soak.
