$15.00

Beeyoutiful's Frankincense Essential Oil ~ 100% Pure & Natural Boswellia carterii 

Aromatherapeutic GC/IR Verified - 0.5 fl. oz.

Used for thousands of years, Frankincense has been an important ingredient in perfumes, facial masks and skin creams, as well as having a rich history of medicinal use. Frankincense "tears" (the resin that drips from the Boswellia tree and then hardens) are the source of steam distilled Frankincense Essential Oil, which carries a fresh, balsamic scent with notes of citrus.

The Treasure of Frankincense Oil

Frankincense is rich in therapeutic properties and its uses are numerous.

Frankincense is a great immune-booster; mixing this essential oil with a carrier oil and rubbing it into the feet and/or lymph areas is a great way to support immune function when under the weather or simply for daily maintenance.

Frankincense is quite famous both for its respiratory aid and its calming effects on the body. Used in a diffuser, in a bath or massaged into the skin, it helps to clear the lungs and ease breathing. At the same time, it works to calm the mind, soothe the nerves and bring about steady breathing. It is an ideal essential oil to use before going to bed and has even been used for its calming action during labor. 

The astringent, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic qualities of Frankincense Essential Oil make it ideal for taking care of the skin and wounds. It has an excellent rejuvenating effect on skin, toning and revitalizing through its ability to repair skin cells. Add a couple drops to your favorite face mask! It has also been used on scars and stretch marks to help lessen their appearance and is widely known for its use in mending wounds and skin inflammation. 

For menstrual cramps, add some Frankincense to a bath. It not only eases cramping, but also supports the female hormone system. One component of the oil, called sesquiterpene, acts to help balance hormones as well as emotions and also stimulate various glands in the body such as the thyroid, pineal and pituitary.

Caution: Frankincense Essential Oil is very sensitive to light and air exposure. To prevent oxidization, store in a cool, dark place. If oil has been exposed to light and air, be aware that increased skin sensitivity may result.

Pregnancy/Lactation: Although considered safe in general for use during pregnancy and lactation, we advise that you speak with your healthcare practitioner prior to use to insure it is appropriate for your specific situation.
