Frankincense Essential Oil
Frankincense is my go-to oil for all things calming to the mind and the skin. I use it practically daily for almost everything and it’s a great booster to put into blends. Frankincense has relaxing effects on the human body including uplifting mood and heightening awareness. I love to diffuse this oil to help me relax and stay focused throughout the day. It helps to level out my moods, calm my mind, and to concentrate on the task at hand. Plus, I can count on Frankincense for an immune boost, and it’s great for skin! It really is the King of Oils!
Perhaps the most precious of the ancient oils, Frankincense is highly sought after even today for its many uses including: relaxation, immune support, and mood enhancement; and frankincense has been a part of ceremonies and used for its therapeutic properties for thousands of years.
It was of great value then and even now the difficulty in sourcing makes it one of the more expensive essential oils.
Frankincense comes from trees on small family farms in Oman and Somalia. Frankincense trees can live to be 100 years old if treated properly. Gum resin from trees is steam distilled and the trees are only scored twice per year to ensure the health of the trees for generations to come.
