These Frankincense oil uses will blow your minds!
Why you Need to Start Putting Frankincense Oil to Use ASAP
What Is Frankincense?
Frankincense is a fragrant resin (think sticky, hard, and clear liquid) that comes from the Boswellia tree.
Imported from Africa, India, Pakistan, and the Middle East this healing essential oil has been used for over 6,000 years across the World. Once used for embalming, as a healing ointment, and spiritual rituals this seemingly magic oil is now more commonly implemented in perfumes and skincare.
Frankincense and Myrrh
These multi-centuries old best buddies have been teamed up for good reason. Myrrh is also a resin from the Commiphora tree of Africa and the Middle East, originally put to work in ancient medical practices and in religious ceremonies. Now you can find this oil in a wide variety of popular cosmetics.
Although more studies need to be made – there is a possible link to both Frankincense and Myrrh having cancer fighting abilities.

Where To Buy Frankincense Oil
In my search for the best essential oil brands to purchase I discovered two important things to consider: purity and organic sourcing. But why are these things so important?
What is the difference between pure Frankincense Oil and organic Frankincense Oil?
“Pure” frankincense oil means it contains no synthetic chemicals.
“Organic” frankincense oil means it was made without being modified genetically. Look for 100% organic on the label. I do my best to use as little fillers on my reactive skin as possible. So the purer more organic a product can be – the better.
