One of the most sacred essential oils throughout history, our Frankincense is steam distilled from Boswellia carterii, a fragrant tree found throughout Africa and Asia, especially in the middle east. Known as one of several oils high in sesquiterpenes, these molecules are some of the only substances in the world that can pass through the blood-brain barrier and get to the root of imbalances in the body and mind in a way no modern medicine can. It is not a wonder Frankincense has stood the test of time for centuries and was reserved for kings, priests and other holy people. It is a wonderful pain reliever, useful for many types of pain including arthritis, muscles aches, nerve pain and low back issues associated with PMS.
Frankincense helps the physical body connect to the higher powers, enhances meditation, prayer and connection. Frankincense also protects the body and spirit from illness and bad energy. A powerful anti anxiety oil, Frankincense can calm acute anxiety and work on deeper emotional and spiritual ails including depression and grief. It’s immune enhancing abilities are well documented in science, including its role as a possible treatment for cancer. And finally, it’s amazing in skin care – as it has its way with cells, helping to reverse time and smooth wrinkles.
We love to inhale it, use it topically and under the proper protocol, an internal regimen of Frankincense an be life changing (contact us to learn more).
