Frankincense essential oil has strong ancient roots. History shows that Frankincense was traded in the Middle East and North Africa as long as 5,000 years ago. It was burned as incense during religious ceremonies, applied to wounds and sores, and harnessed even as insect repellent and perfume. Frankincense was also famously bestowed upon the newborn baby Jesus by the three wise men in the Bible.
Also known as olibanum, Frankincense essential oil originates from the gummy sap of the cut bark of the Boswellia tree, which is a small tree with white or pink flowers that is native to the Red Sea region and Northeast Africa. Frankincense essential oil can be identified by its pale yellow or green colour and fresh, terpeney aroma.
The properties of Frankincense essential oil are plentiful. It’s an anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, astringent, carminative, digestive, expectorant, sedative, tonic, and more! Such an abundance of qualities leads to a variety of health and wellbeing applications.
Emotionally, Frankincense is useful for relieving stress and achieving a feeling of peace and relaxation. It works well diffused or dropped into a hot bath, especially when blended with Patchouli and Sandalwood oils.
Physically, Frankincense is a powerhouse of positive benefits. The oil improves circulation when rubbed topically, which in turn reduces joint and muscle pain and inflammation. Frankincense essential oil also supports the digestive system, and in turn the immune system, by supporting the secretion of digestive enzymes and relaxing the muscles in the digestive tract. A blend of Chamomile, Ginger, Cinnamon, and Frankincense aids this process and boost immunity when diffused or applied topically.
Furthermore, multiple studies now indicate that Frankincense can fight the cells of specific forms of cancer, even those that are resistant to chemotherapy. The astringent properties of Frankincense are also helpful in preventing tooth decay and oral infections. There’s nothing this oil can’t do! Read More
Frankincense Oil in Australia
Hello, and welcome to Australian Oils of Nature. We are one of Australia’s most reliable and ethical providers of essentials oils and natural remedies. We believe that technological advances in our modern society, and the domination of large pharmaceutical corporations in the fields of medicine and self-care, have led to us becoming increasingly divorced from nature, and from the holistic solutions and remedies that have effectively served over a millennium’s worth of previous generations. Our ancestors knew and understood the healing powers of the natural world that surrounds us – particularly those that can be derived from essential oils – and we believe that it would be an unforgivable shame to lose our connection to these roots, this wisdom, and these lessons.
