Frankincense (Boswellia carterii) has been sought after since ancient times. The complex aroma of this oil can elevate many aspects of your life. Frankincense essential oil has an earthy, uplifting aroma that’s perfect for grounding and spiritual connectedness. Create a safe and comforting environment when you diffuse or inhale this empowering oil.

What can Frankincense Oil do for you?

Reduce and fade scars
Place frankincense on a scar to reduce its appearance.

Boost your immune system
Massage a few drops into the bottom of your feet or diffuse a few drops throughout your home to boost your immune system. This works best in your bedroom at night, and is especially useful during cold and flu season.

De-stress and lessen anxiety
Apply to your temples to relieve stress and evoke calm feelings. Dilute a few drops into a carrier oil and rub onto the back of your neck for relief from anxiety.

Anti-aging and wrinkle or stretch mark reduction
Dilute frankincense oil 50/50 with a carrier oil or add a few drops to your favorite moisturizer to reduce fine lines and lessen the appearance of wrinkles.

Remove moles, skin tags, warts, or acne
Apply a single drop 3 to 4 times daily mixed with a carrier oil or lotion until the spot is gone. If you have a mole that changes shape or grows, be sure to consult your healthcare professional for possible treatment.

Replacement for NSAIDS or pain relievers for muscle, joint, or arthritis pain
Frankincense is a powerful anti-inflammatory and can be used with a carrier oil where pain and inflammation are present.

Relaxation and sleep
Diffuse this oil to open the senses and establish a calming atmosphere. Perfect for meditation, de-stressing, and promotion of sleep.

Natural oral health
Frankincense oil can be mixed with baking soda and coconut oil to create a natural toothpaste. The oil can prevent tooth decay, bad breath, cavities, or oral infections due to its antiseptic properties.

Natural household cleaner and deodorizer
Frankincense is an antiseptic, which means it helps to eliminate bacteria and viruses from your home. Diffuse the oil to help reduce indoor pollution, add it to water to deodorize and disinfect any room or surface in your home.

Relief from indigestion
If you have gas, stomach aches, constipation, cramps, or even PMS, you can use 1 to 2 drops of (100% pure) Frankincense oil in 8 ounces of water or a tablespoon of honey for natural GI relief.
