An oil that has been used since biblical times, frankincense has been proven to offer a wide array of therapeutic benefits. It can be used as an anti-inflammatory, but it is also perfect for simply calming the mind and body while relieving stress and tension. Other uses include healing wounds, reducing stress and inflammation, boosting the immune system, and enhancing memory function. When blended with a carrier oil or facial lotion it can be used for fine lines, wrinkles, and sun spots and to improve overall skin health. Frankincense essential oil is used in many cosmetics, incense, and perfumes due to the semi-spicy undertones.
It's also common to see frankincense used in meditation thanks to its ability to relax your muscles and free your mind. Like some other oils, frankincense is excellent at relieving mucus build-up and treating respiratory congestion. This makes it an increasingly-common aromatherapy ingredient.
Uses & Information – Frankincense (Seratta) Essential Oil:
History/Fun Fact:Frankincense is also known as olibanum and is one of the oldest aromatic materials used by mankind. Its uses have been recorded for 1000’s of years. Initially, the primary uses were for spiritual and religious pursuits. Of course, one of the most famous uses was as a gift to the baby Jesus from the three Wise men, along with gold and myrrh. It was also said to be used in embalming in ancient Egyptian times. It was, and still is in some churches, used as incense in a censer. A censer held the raw frankincense resin and was then lit and swung around the church. Frankincense was said to relax the church patrons and put them in a state which might help them to receive God more readily.
Suggested Uses / Recipes:Blend with helichrysum oil, copaiba oil, and lavender oil and a carrier oil such as argan oil for a muscle-soothing massage and body oil blend.

How do I use the Essential Oils?
Essential oils can be used in so many different ways such as for mood lifting, allergies, cold/flu symptoms, and sleeping by diffusing the oils in an oil diffuser. They can be used topically for things such as muscle pain relief, skin toning, hair strengthening, and cleaning just to name a few. If you want to use the oils for any medical purposes we recommend you always consult a physician or licensed aroma therapist before use. You can contact our Customer Support Team to help you find the best uses to suit your needs.
How do you extract the Essential Oils?
The majority of our oils are extracted by Steam Distillation.
Can I use the oil directly on my skin?
Yes, however we always recommend you do a patch test before using any undiluted Essential Oil on your skin. To do a patch test you will want to place a small amount of the undiluted oil on the inside of your wrist or behind your ear, because the skin is thinner than the rest of the body and more sensitive. If there is no reaction within 15 minutes you should be able to use the oil topically without a carrier oil or lotion. If you have a reaction try diluting the oil with a carrier oil or lotion then do the patch test again. This will cut down the strength of the oil so it may be less irritating.
What type of carrier oil can I use? Is there anything else I can use besides carrier oil?
You can use JoJoba oil, Fractionated Coconut oil, and plain unscented lotion. If you are using the Essential Oil in a massage the JoJoba oil works best. If you are looking for a moisturizer the Coconut oil or lotion works best.
