Frankincense has a signature warm, clean, slightly woody aroma that is comforting and homey, and also offers many health and beauty benefits. Grown primarily in the MIddle East, Northern Africa and India, Frankincense has been used for thousands of years in many cultures for its antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and immune-supporting properties. Frankincense extracted from Boswellia carterii is the most popular Frankincense essential oil, and the one commonly used in making incense. It has a deep, rich, grounding aroma that is said to promote peace, tranquility and focus.
Frankincense Carterii essential oil is useful for immune support due to the high level of alpha-pinene present, and it also helps heal from respiratory illnesses and breathing issues more quickly. It is also renowned for its benefits to the skin. Frankincense is often used as an active ingredient in skincare creams, serums and lotions, helping to make all skin look rejuvenated, mature skin look younger and helps to heal scarring.
