What is frangipani oil?

When it comes to caring for our bodies, there are a wide variety of natural products out there that we can put to good use. Many people use frangipani essential oil as a natural solution to help moisturise and improve the overall condition of our skin. Derived from the frangipani plant, this essential oil has become particularly popular in the beauty industry and is found in many products that help care for our hair and skin. Let's take a further look in to the benefits linked to using frangipani essential oil to improve the condition of our hair.

Frangipani Oil Side Effects

One thing that you might find with frangipani oil is that it can be quite strong on the skin. We recommend diluting this with a carrier oil as much as you can before applying to your hair, skin or scalp. 

Also please note that this has been recommended to be avoided if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Those who are suffering from any kind of underlying illness have been recommended to avoid using frangipani oil. As always, we recommend you speak to a healthcare professional to see if frangipani essential oil is suitable for you.
