Frankincense has been utilized throughout antiquity, including references to the three wise men bestowing the precious resin on Jesus. The Middle East, Northern Africa, and India are the primary producers. Boswellia Serrata, an Indian variety, has a thinner consistency and a stronger aroma than its siblings (carterii, frereana, etc). It is thought to be a highly therapeutic oil.
Frankincense essential oil is known for reducing apparent signs of aging by acting as an astringent (tightening the skin and providing a supple youthful appearance) and encouraging cellular regeneration. This essential oil is anti-inflammatory and antiseptic, making it a must-have.
The ability of Frankincense essential oil to enhance the immune system by creating excess T-Lymphocytes (white blood cells) and stimulating the lymphatic system has been demonstrated.
Frankincense essential oil is an excellent addition to cosmetic applications, personal care formulations, soaps, perfumery, incense, candles, and aromatherapy.
