Frankincense Breakdown

Frankincense Breakdown

Boswellia carterii, frereana, y sacra

Of all of the essential oils available, I would argue that Frankincense is an oil every home truly needs. It is perhaps the most versatile and most beneficial of all essential oils... at least in my home it is. Frankincense is remarkably gentle, which makes it the oil of choice for people of all ages and health stages. It is a uniquely powerful aroma that serves to provide soothing and enhancing qualities to many areas of the body. If you've never before used oils, I highly suggest this be one of your first oils you learn to incorporate in your household.

Renowned as one of the most prized and precious essential oils, Frankincense has extraordinary health benefits.* In addition to its notoriety in the New Testament, the Babylonians and Assyrians would burn Frankincense in religious ceremonies and the ancient Egyptians used Frankincense resin for everything from perfume to salves for soothing skin. This centuries-old knowledge contributes to the modern uses of Frankincense today. It’s soothing and beautifying properties are used to rejuvenate skin and help reduce the appearance of imperfections. As the king of oils, Frankincense is known to support healthy cellular function.* When inhaled or diffused, Frankincense promotes feelings of peace, relaxation, satisfaction, and overall wellness.

Directions for Use:
Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
Internal use: Dilute one drop in 4 fl. oz. of liquid.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil to minimize any skin sensitivity.
