Uses and Benefits of Frankincense Essential Oil
Frankincense Essential Oil (Boswellia thurifera) has been used and traded for centuries. Its uses have been numerous throughout history. It was used as an eyeliner by women in ancient Egypt, used at religious ceremonies by the Greeks and Romans, and traded as currency by many cultures throughout the years.
Today, its many uses continue. Frankincense Essential Oil is a wonderful diffuser oil that can help focus the mind and relieve stress and anxiety. These benefits can also be achieved by adding a few drops of oil to a bath, creating a relaxing and rejuvenating bath soak.
Frankincense Essential Oil is commonly used to keep skin looking healthy and clear. It is often used to treat skin conditions such as acne and dry skin as well as to reduce signs of aging such as wrinkles. Its cellular healing and rejuvenating properties may also help reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
The oil also creates a meditational gateway. Similar to amber, frankincense helps to focus one's mind. Ancient claims of having a 'rejuvenating' quality still stand today.
