Stretch marks? Age spots? Wrinkles? Ahh, all the bane of a woman's existence. While we can't stop ageing, we can try to age gracefully without resorting to various cosmetic procedures. Why not rely instead on the natural beauty-enhancing properties of essential oils?

Frankincense essential oil, for example, has some of the greatest anti-ageing benefits. It's a powerful astringent and is known to reduce the appearance of large pores, sunspots, age spots, acne blemishes, wrinkles, and even scars! It can help even out skin tone and tighten saggy skin along the eye area, the corners of our mouth, abdomen, and more!

This oil is also highly regarded for its emotional and spiritual benefits. Its mesmerising fragrance helps us to balance and open the crown chakra. It's proven to be beneficial whenever we feel anxious, melancholy, depressed, isolated, or just overall drowning in negative thoughts and feelings.

Blends Well With: Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Lime, Cypress, Clary Sage, Rose, Geranium, Peppermint, Ylang Ylang, Bergamot, Lavender, Lemongrass, Lemon, and Wild Orange.


100% Boswellia Carterii Oil


Zea Relief is an Australian business that has over 20 years of experience in the aromatherapy and essential oil industry. Their quality essential oils are 100% Pure, not tested on animals, and do not contain any synthetic ingredients. 

How to use Essential Oils


Add 2-4 drops of essential oil to your diffuser after having added water to the fill line. Some oils may require 4-8 drops to be added.


Essential oils should always be diluted before applying to the skin. Blend essential oil with coconut oil, almond oil or any other suitable carrier oil for massage.


Essential oils suitable for inhalation should be diluted by adding 1-2 drops of essential oil to a bowl of steaming water. Place a towel over your head and the bowl of water. With your eyes closed, inhale the scent for up to 5 minutes at a time.

Other uses

You can add 3-5 drops of essential oil to a full bath of water, or onto a face washer placed in the bottom of your shower.

Rollerbottles are handy for ‘on the go’ applications – simply fill a rollerbottle with your preferred carrier oil and add some drops of your essential oil. You can also fit a rollerball top to an essential oil bottle rather than using a separate bottle – make sure to dilute your oil however. If that sounds like too much work, you can simply purchase ready made rollerbottles.

Essential oils are great additions to bases to make your own personal care items such as soaps, face creams or shampoos. You can also use essential oils to help cut down on chemicals in your cleaning supplies. Make sure to check out our blog articles for more ideas!

For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. Do not apply undiluted on the skin. Non-toxic and non-irritant. Avoid during pregnancy. Keep out of reach of children. Store below 30°C in a dry place away from direct sunlight. Essential Oils are flammable. If ailment persists seek medical advice.

Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:

  • Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.

  • Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.

  • Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
