If you thought frankincense was just the stuff wise men brought to Baby Jesus,(not that that’s not enough…I mean, c’mon) then let me introduce you to a fragrant friend that’s a whole lot more! Frankincense is an essential oil which has many healing and health benefits – but here are some of the lesser-known perks of this powerful natural ingredient.
For starters, it can help reduce acne and constrict pores, giving a youthful and smooth look to skin. It has been used for centuries as an antiseptic due to its ability to fight bacteria and viruses, making it a great choice for treating minor cuts or sore throats. Its anti-inflammatory properties can also reduce redness and swelling, making it an invaluable remedy for all sorts of skin ailments.
It isn’t just skin deep either – inhaling frankincense helps improve breathing, acting as decongestant that can soothe coughing fits and promote respiratory health. But that isn’t where it ends – there’s evidence this oil might be useful for combating depression and anxiety too! In aromatherapy sessions the scent of frankincense helps reduce stress levels, promoting feelings of relaxation and improving our mental well-being.
Now I know what you might be thinking: All these benefits sound amazing but how do I take advantage? The good news is that frankincense is really easy to incorporate into your life! You can diffuse it using diffusers or even add a few drops to lotions or bath water when you’re feeling stressed out or need relief from dry skin.
The bottom line? Frankincense is one powerful natural ingredient with plenty of hidden secrets waiting to be discovered. What are you waiting for? Let’s get started exploring the many benefits which this magical oil brings!

If no one sent you here, here’s the link to grab the cleanest version of frankincense essential oil that I have found, I trust this company implicitly and wouldn’t buy it anywhere else (some folks just add a drop to a bottle of water if you can believe that!) http://marthekrejci.com/frank
