Frankincense essential oils have numerous benefits to the mind, body and your general health including skin care and stress relief.
The Benefits of Frankincense
Since ancient times, our ancestors have been utilizing their natural resources to discover some of the most powerful remedies and medicines. Frankincense oil is no different, and is pulled from the resin in trees.
Extracted specifically from the Boswellia Carteri tree and its relatives, these plants can grow in extremely dry and desolate conditions. Native to Somalia, but soon distributed throughout the world, frankincense oil has been used for hundreds of years in Anglo-Saxon traditions.
Frankincense Offers Stress Relief and Spiritual Direction
The burning of frankincense oil is popular in Christian traditions, including religious ceremonies, as it was one of the gifts the wise men gave to Jesus. Outside of religion, the scent is used in meditation and other non-religious prayer ceremonies like weddings, birthdays, tupperware parties, etc. Believe it or not, scientists have even discovered it in the remains of the ancient Egyptians, and their sacred belongings.
100% pure Frankincense oil is known for its uplifting scent, and also used to relieve stress and anxiety. Known to induce calm and relaxed feelings, this sedative reduces blood pressure while promoting deep breathes and inward thoughts.
Frankincense Essential Oils are Great for the Body and the Skin
The benefits of this ancient oil reach far beyond the realm of spiritual experiences. Frankincense oil is also known for its skin healing properties. Frequently used in cosmetics, this essential oil is prized for it’s ability to smooth and soften skin, especially scars.
When applied topically or even when inhaled, Frankincense carries with it healing properties that fight scarring, acne and promote blemish fading. Adding a few drops of the essential oil to your daily moisturizer can add the same benefits.
Frankincense Oil Offers Benefits When Inhaled
Believe it or not, Frankincense oil has helped soothe asthma attacks, coughs, eliminate problematic phlegm and has been known to provide bronchitis relief. Adding to the stress relieving properties, this magical oil also helps cure colds, fevers, headaches, toothaches, and more. Whoa!
