Frankincense is an essential oil that has been in demand since ancient times. From the Ancient Egyptians to traditional Chinese Medicine, Frankincense has an array of benefits which make it a wonderful addition to any treatment.
It has a sweet and spicy scent that adds a freshening note to any blend.
Frankincense is well known for its mood boosting properties. You can experience this through a therapeutic massage, but its uplifting effects are best felt by adding it to an essential oil burner. Just a few drops in a burner will fill the room with the calming scent of Frankincense. By breathing this in, the nervous system is calmed whilst at the same time increasing your energy. It is for this reason that Frankincense has been used to assist concentration and aid meditation.
The rejuvenating properties of Frankincense essential oil make it a key addition to any anti-ageing formula. It is great at improving skin tone, treating ageing skin and reducing scar tissue. In short, it encourages your skin cells to regenerate more efficiently and hydrates your skin, therefore making it more supple and less prone to wrinkling.
