Frankincense (Boswellia sacra)

This oil exudes peace, tear drops of resin appear on the Boswellia tree, golden resin oozes down the bark, a most prized resin for thousands of years. It has been used in Religious rites, perfuming, embalming, incense and luxurious aromatherapy treatments.

From the gift of the Magi, the Silk Road Era, the Arabians, Egyptians, Greeks, Mediterranean, Romans THE LOVE AFFAIR BEGAN and continues. It is scripted many many times over, and blended with the richest of oils, Myrrh, Cardamom, Juniper, Cinnamon, Mint, Bitter Orange, Bergamot, Mandarin, Rosemary, Lemon, Lavender to create many exquisite aromas and lotions, creams and balms. We use it in our Nourishing Hand Balm Avocado Face Cream for its rejuvenating and cell regenerating properties.

Its aroma is sweet, balsamic spicy, incense like, extracted from Resin. Imagine this aromatic essence releasing and perfuming the air. It works superbly with heat and fire to release pleasant peaceful almost addictive scents. Similarly it releases when topically applied to the skin with massage oils and skincare.

Physically it provides stimulant properties, expectorant (clearing mucous from the lungs), anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, wound healing and cell regenerating for the skin.

Emotionally, Frankincense promotes feelings of well-being and calm. It is the most sought after oil in meditation to bring clarity, enlightenment, introspection. It will gently ease your mind, and the wisdom you seek will come.


A nice blend to try is 2 drops Frankincense, 1 drop Myrrh, 1 drop Cardamom, 1 drop Bergamot. Blend in 20-30ml carrier oil such as Almond, Coconut or Sunflower. Apply to hands and third eye OR SIMPLY INHALE FROM THE BOTTLE. You could also use these drops in a ceramic burner or a diffuser to infuse the air. Find a nice quiet place. You will automatically start to deepen and lengthen your breath as Frankincense works its magic. Set your intentions or ask for your mind to be calm. Connect to the energy of the aromatic essences. Go on your journey with Frankincense to a state of stillness.

Enjoy enlightenment!
