FRANKINCENSE Essential Oil | Wildcrafted
Frankincense is among the most widely used of all essential oils. Its benefits are numerous and it has been used extensively in traditional cultures for many thousands of years. Frankincense oil is revered for its powerfully uplifting and clarifying effects on the body and mind. When diffused in your home, it provides protection for you and your family and encourages healthy moods. It will turn the fragrance of your home into that of a temple!
A few drops of this high-quality Frankincense oil can be applied to the palms, rubbed together and directly inhaled. This produces an instantaneous clarifying effect and a strong activation of the life-force (prana). Frankincense essential oil can also be mixed with a carrier oil such as Coconut or Sesame and massaged into the skin to help the body stay limber and relaxed. It is particularly helpful for those who practice yoga.
A few drops of the oil can be sprinkled on a hot, wet towel and applied to the chest to open the lungs and enhance deep breathing. Among Frankincense's many attributes is its use as a spiritual tool for ritual, prayer and meditation. Used in worship for thousands of years, it is valued both for its many healing powers and for its intoxicating fragrance. Frankincense can properly be said to belong to the family of sacred scents.

How to Store
A universally known incense with a spicy, balsamic, instantly recognizable odor, the aromatic resin of Frankincense has been at the epicenter of ritual practice, medicine and commerce in India, the Arabian peninsula and North Africa since ancient times. This plant has been a true gift to the human community, serving variously not only as medicine but also as a source of dyes and of cosmetics, along with its use as an air-freshener, mosquito repellent and essential source of livelihood for individuals and communities. The resin has been a major item of commerce for at least 3,000 years.

As unique high-value crops, plants used for essential oil production include aromatic grasses, medicinals, exotic flowers and more. These oils represent the opportunity to continue long traditions of agrarian culture that are increasingly being lost to modernization. Many of the Indian oils also represent protection of threatened and endangered species as well as preservation of unique ecosystems. These oils are success stories of long-term botanical sustainability.
