FRANKINCENSE - 5ml
Frankincense, also known as olibanum, is the edible resin or sap of the Boswellia tree. The essential oil is distilled from this dry resin. Frankincense has been used and traded in the Arabian Peninsula and North Africa for over 5000 years, and is valued by perfumers and healers alike. It has been found to reduce inflammation, reduce congestion, and relieve digestive disorders. It is even being investigated for its cancer killing properties, and its ability to penetrate and heal damaged brain cells by making more oxygen available.
Whereas studies concerning the affects of Frankincense on dementia are in early stages, the potential brain healing character, coupled with its property of calming and mood stabalization make it a good candidate. Frankincense is safe to use on the skin and even internally. We recommend dilution with coconut oil or honey for internal use, and with a carrier oil for external use. There are no reported side effects, but it is always best to begin with a spot test on the skin, and to proceed slowly if using internally.
