Renowned as one of the most prized and precious essential oils, frankincense has extraordinary health benefits. As well as being famed for one of the scents brought as a gift by the three wise men to Jesus in the crib, the Babylonians and Assyrians burned frankincense in religious ceremonies and the ancient Egyptians used frankincense resin for everything from perfume to salves for soothing skin.
This centuries-old knowledge contributes to the modern uses of frankincense. Its soothing and beautifying properties are used to rejuvenate skin and help reduce the appearance of imperfections when applied topically. As the king of oils, frankincense is known to support healthy cellular function when used internally. Plus it is treasured for its anti-depressant ability to bring peace and relaxation.
Key constituent of frankincense are monoterpenes which are said to make this a restorative oil, revealing falseness and restoring awareness of the truth.
