Frankincense is one of the most ancient and revered essential oils, widely used for its meditative, calming and centering qualities. It has been historically used for respiratory issues, like asthma and bronchitis. Frankincense is a must for skin care, particularly for mature skin. It also increases wound healing while decreasing scar tissue. Its sedative qualities make it a nice addition to massage blends to release muscle pain and tension.
Skin sensitization possible if using old and/or oxidized oils. Essential Oils are typically used through inhalation and topical application while properly diluted. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified aromatherapy practitioner to address a specific health need, for a specified amount of time. Keep away from children and pets.
