The Benefits of Frankincense Essential Oil

The History of Frankincense

Frankincense essential oil is recorded as being a sacred gift for thousands of years. This luxurious commodity was one of some of the expensive gifts offered to Jesus and his family by the three wise men. Frankincense essential oil is derived today through more advanced methods. The clean-smelling resin is taken from the boswelia thurifera tree and the oil is considered to be a perfume and revered incense in many countries; it plays an important role in ancient meditative practices in China, India and Egypt.

Health Properties

Perhaps one of the reasons why frankincense is held in such high esteem and considered even today such an important substance is because of its high cost and abilities to heal spiritual, mental and physical illness. Frankincense is also anti-aging to the skin and body and increases HGH levels or human growth hormone produced in the pituitary gland. This slows the aging process directly. This benefits the person using it in countless ways and keeps a healthy, rejuvenated glow and appearance.

Beauty benefits

Frankincense essential oil is an ingredient in natural beauty preparations because of the amazing effect is has on wrinkles and all kinds of blemishes. The versatility of frankincense makes it suitable for all types of skin including dry to oily skin, adolescent, acne prone skin and mature or sun damaged skin. Frankincense essential oil is one of the best essential oils for aging skin because it is gentle. The carminative, antiseptic, anti-bacterial and diuretic properties are only a few properties of frankincense essential oil that are strong enough to kill bacteria on the skin surface such as sores like open wounds and boils, ulcers and cuts.

DIY tips

Frankincense blends well with citrus, bergamot, pine, benzoin, lavender, myrrh, sandalwood and many others. This oil has a relaxing smell that does not tend to make you tired which is an aromatherapy benefit to someone interested in using the oil for the unique aromatherapy purposes. Here are some ways to use the earthy Frankincense essential oil:

  • Monks have used frankincense essential oil to aide them in their meditative work. Burning frankincense helps you to enter a state of relaxation, increasing your ability to breathe deeply. To do this, put a chunk or “tear” of the resin into a resin burner or a pot on the stove. Allow the clean-smelling fragrance to fill the air. You can get a similar subduing effect by chewing on some of the resin.
  • For sick rooms burn frankincense to kill bacteria in the air and heal patients by means of aromatherapy. Also works well as a preventative for disease.
  • Frankincense tears or dried resin can be used interchangeably with the essential oil-they are the same thing just in a different form.
  • To clean your teeth, add some pure, therapy-grade frankincense essential oil to your toothpaste or use it to brush your teeth. You breath will smell wonderful all day.

What to consider when purchasing

Everyone should have this oil in their medicine cabinet for their internal and external health needs. When purchasing the essential oil, make sure you are buying it in small quantities.
