Frankincense Essential Oil

100% Pure Frankincense (Boswellia Serrata) Essential Oil. 10ml Bottle.




Most people have heard of aromatherapy, but not everyone knows what it is. Aromatherapy is a holistic method of healing aimed at improving mental and physiological well-being. While the practice originates from Middle Eastern and Asian countries, it is becoming more and more popular in the Western world. This is because of the sheer number of people moving towards a more natural approach to health.  

Using frankincense in aromatherapy may be able to help reduce symptoms of inflammation, including those brought on by rheumatoid arthritis. Studies show that a certain component of boswellic acid can act as an inhibiting agent on certain enzymes that trigger inflammation. Frankincense essential oil uses in aromatherapy can include adding it to baths or diffusers, or mixing with a massage or carrier oil, and applying topically. 

Examples of products you can use in conjunction with aromatherapy include lotions, creams, bath salts, face masks, hair masks, and many more. Simply add a few drops of the oil with your favorite products to enjoy its fragrance and benefits on a daily basis. 


The word “Frankincense” originates from Old French: the word franc—which means free, or pure—in combination with encens, which translates to incense. Coming from the resin of the Boswellia Tree, Frankincense is one of the world’s oldest commodities. The tree is native to Northern Africa and the Middle East, but can also be found in areas such as Oman and Yemen.

Also known as Olibanum, Frankincense is a common ingredient in incenses, oils, and perfumes. Due to increases in demand, over-exploitation, and the destruction of forests for agricultural use, it is important to ensure you are purchasing high-quality, sustainable Frankincense Essential Oil.


Modern Uses of Frankincense Essential Oil


Historically, frankincense is probably most famous for its starring role in the tale of the three wise men. In this Christian Bible story depicting the birth of Jesus, three men arrive bearing gifts - one of which is frankincense. Archaeological history shows frankincense was often used by the Greeks and Romans in holy rituals, both of whom were large importers. Historical evidence in the form of the writings of Pliny the Elder—a Roman historian and botanist—show us the many ancient uses of frankincense. Frankincense was a common ingredient in traditional medicines as well as being used as an insect repellent. Some people were even known to chew the edible resin, using it as a sort of gum. (Note that this was only pure resin, and it is never advisable to ingest any essential oil.)

Today, frankincense oil is used for many varying things. In terms of holistic healing, this essential oil is a key component in aromatherapy, Chinese medicine, and Ayurveda. It is a common belief that frankincense essential oil benefits the skin, which is why it is often used as an additive in many popular cosmetic products.

As expected of a product that has been around for thousands of years, the benefits of frankincense essential oil are numerous. While a lot of the claims about this oil’s benefits come from anecdotal research, there is considerable science-backed research available for your consideration. Studies indicate frankincense essential oil may be able to reduce inflammation, improve skin tone, reduce scarring, and even fight cancer.
