About Frankincense & Rose

My name is Katie Friedland and I am the proud owner of Frankincense & Rose Botanical Skin Care, in Norwich, VT. I am a cosmetic formulator and a natural perfumer with a passion for combining healing botanical extracts with luscious skin cream formulas. It all started years ago when I healed a nasty sunburn overnight with lavender essential oil.  I developed respect for aromatherapy and a desire to collect as much knowledge and as many healing botanicals as possible. My first attempt at making face cream, however, was an epic failure: I ended up with a big jar of lip balm with water floating on top! My journey into serious cosmetic chemistry began, and I have since developed many unique formulas combining modern chemistry with ancient herbal medicine.  Each jar of cream, bottle of lotion, and botanical perfume is a sumptuous feast of sensory pleasure with the added healing benefit of plant extracts rich in natural antioxidant and antibacterial properties.

My line of natural perfumes uses the distilled essences of plants, flowers and resins, the way perfume was created for thousands of years before the recent developement of synthetic fragrances.  There is a new wave of natural perfumery sweeping through the fragrance industry with leaders like Mandy Aftel of Aftelier Perfumes leading us back to the foundation of scent and reintroducing us to the natural resources we have long relied upon for medicine, fragrance, and spirituality.  I am proud to be a student of Mandy's and excited to share my creations with you!

As an independent business, I support local commerce where we know and trust those providing our everyday goods. At Frankincense & Rose, information is key: educating my customers about what they are getting in every jar and bottle is an important part of doing honest business.  sign up for my monthly Newsletter to receive news on new products, limited edition products, market venues and sales; and join my Facebook page to join the community of Frankincense & Rose friends!
