Frankincense essential oil for wound healing:
Frankincense is well known as a wound healing essential oil. Frankincense is reported to have properties that encourage skin regrowth (cicatrisant), promote wound healing (vulnerary) and are generally protective to cells (cytophylactic). Frankincense may encourage open wounds to close, improve the appearance of scars and combat skin infections that are slow to resolve. Adding essential oils in a dispersant to salty water could help improve the condition when applied to the wounded area.
Frankincense essential oil for skin care:
The restorative properties of Frankincense can provide relief. Frankincense is the oil of choice for dry and mature skin types. As noted above, it can also be used in the treatment of scars and wounds. Apart from the skin healing action of Frankincense, this balsamic essential oil is anti-inflammatory, slightly analgesic and anti-oxidising, which helps keep skin looking nourished, moisturised and healthy. Enjoy the benefits of Frankincense by adding it to skin care products such as in moisturizing cream, oil and face masks.
Frankincense essential oil for respiratory concerns:
Frankincense is an excellent choice for respiratory system complaints especially if they are provoked by stress and anxiety. Asthma, emphysema and hay fever may be improved with Frankincense. Those prone to chest infections due to being run down could benefit as well. The essential oil is useful for conditions where there is thick phlegm such as with bronchitis and other chest infections. Frankincense has anticatarrhal, antiseptic and expectorant properties.
Frankincense essential oil for the immune system:
One of the many notable properties of Frankincense is to boost the immune system. The reasons why some essential oils have an immune stimulating action are not entirely understood. Perhaps the essential oil increases blood flow or relaxes the body so that the immune system can function better. The antimicrobial property may assist our immune system to destroy infectious pathogens. Either way, the immunostimulant action of Frankincense is useful for people who have a lowered or compromised immune system.
Frankincense essential oil for the mind:
Frankincense has a way to slow the breath and still the mind. The aroma has been used in many religious traditions and for the spiritual growth of people from numerous cultures. Frankincense can be utilised when we practice yoga or tai chi. It can be diffused when we meditate or pray. The sweet scent can help connection and concentration if we are consulting the tarot or runes. Perhaps we are trying to write a difficult letter to someone to mend broken bridges or are mentally stuck and seeking a way forward.

Frequently asked questions

When using in a diffuser, use fewer drops then that for an adult (eg. 2-3 drops). See our ECO. Little range for appropriate, kid-friendly blends.
