Botanical Name: Boswellia Carterii
Common Name: Frankincense Essential Oil
Country of Origin: Somalia
Clearing, anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, toning.
Mind & Spirit:
Emotionally, frankincense is grounding, calming and relaxing without being sedating.
This essential oil has a wonderfully calming effect on the mind and helps to create inner peace.
Frankincense Essential Oil is often associated with spiritual, blends. Frankincense oil soothes and calms the mind, slowing down and deepening breathing and is excellent for use when meditating. It also helps to calm anxiety, eases all aches and pains, clears the lungs and acts as a skin tonic.
Frankincense Essential Oil smells sweeter, cleaner and fresher than the resin, and more people prefer the aroma of the essential oil to that of the resin.
The aroma is woody, earthy and also has a slightly fruity/sweet, warm, spicy attitude to it.
Hint: A few drops of this oil in a diffuser will help you to stay grounded and focused. Helps Reduce Stress Reactions and Negative Emotions, I recommend burning frankincense which has a woody earthy undertone with the floral scented aromas of ylang ylang.
Add 4-6 drops of oil to an oil burner or diffuser to enhance your mood.
May be added to water for a relaxing bath and tonic.
