Frankincense is one of the oldest essential oils and is used primarily in meditation to improve one’s inner balance.
Frankincense, Boswellia carteri, is also known as “olibanum,” or “oil from Lebanon.” Considered the “holy anointing oil” in the Middle East, frankincense has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years. It was well known during the time of Christ and was one of the gifts given to Christ at his birth. Anciently, the Chinese used frankincense as a treatment for a range of ailments. Today, frankincense is still used worldwide for both its ceremonial and medicinal use. Frankincense can be used topically, as a dietary supplement, or diffused. Primary Benefits Frankincense can ease many minor aches and pains, clear the lungs, act as a skin tonic, as well as calm and soothe the whole body and mind. Its sweet, warm, balsamic aroma is stimulating and elevating. Useful for visualizing and improving one’s spiritual connection, frankincense has comforting properties that help center the mind and overcome stress and despair. Frankincense also contains sesquiterpenes which stimulate the limbic system of the brain-the center of memory and emotions-and the hypothalamus, pineal, and pituitary glands.
