Frankincense is one of the oldest essential oils
and is used primarily in meditation to improve
one's inner balance.

Frankincense, Boswellia carteri, is also known as
"olibanum," or "oil from Lebanon." Considered the
"holy anointing oil" in the Middle East, frankincense
has been used in religious ceremonies for
thousands of years. It was well known during
the time of Christ and was one of the gifts given
to Christ at his birth. Anciently, the Chinese
used frankincense as a treatment for a range of
ailments. Today, frankincense is still used worldwide
for both its ceremonial and medicinal use.
Frankincense can be used topically, as a dietary
supplement, or diffused.
Primary Benefits
Frankincense can ease many minor aches and
pains, clear the lungs, act as a skin tonic, as well
as calm and soothe the whole body and mind.
Its sweet, warm, balsamic aroma is stimulating
and elevating. Useful for visualizing and improving
one's spiritual connection, frankincense has
comforting properties that help center the mind
and overcome stress and despair. Frankincense
also contains sesquiterpenes which stimulate the
limbic system of the brain-the center of memory
and emotions-and the hypothalamus, pineal,
and pituitary glands.
