One of the world’s most popular essential oils is Frankincense Oil. Frankincense comes from the resin of the Boswellia species of trees that are indigenous to the Middle East, India, Africa, and China. Boswellia is one of the most powerful, natural anti-inflammatories on the planet. Not only is it effective, but it’s very gentle on the body.
The word Frankincense comes from “franc encens,” which means ‘quality incense’ in old French. One of the most popular stories of all times is in the Christian religion, as Frankincense was one of the gifts given to Jesus by the three wise men. It was considered more valuable than Gold.
This centuries-old knowledge contributes to the modern uses of Frankincense today. It’s soothing and beautifying properties are used to rejuvenate skin and help reduce the appearance of imperfections when applied topically. As the king of oils, Frankincense is known to support healthy cellular function when used internally.* When inhaled or diffused, Frankincense promotes feelings of peace, relaxation, satisfaction, and overall wellness.
