A highlight of uses for a few of the oils we keep on hand:
Ancient Uses: Frankincense was considered extremely valuable during ancient times. It was used as a holy anointing oil and as a general cure-all for diseases. It was also used to enhance meditation and elevate spiritual consciousness. Frankincense formed an important part of the Sabbath day offering, and it was one of the three gifts given by the Magi to the Christ child.
Modern Uses: Since frankincense is high in terpenes, it goes beyond the blood brain barrier and helps stimulate the limbic system of the brain as well as the hypothalamus, pineal and pituitary glands. It is used for cancer, depression, allergies, headaches, bronchitis, herpes, tonsillitis, typhoid, warts, brain damage, and stimulates the body’s production of white blood cells. Frankincense is one of the few oils that is considered anti-tumoral. It is a strong antiviral, antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial, antiseptic and expectorant oil. Frankincense oil has the ability to relax and revitalize at the same time. It is excellent for nervous tension and nervous exhaustion. Its fragrance increases spiritual awareness and promotes meditation. It may also help improve attitude and uplift spirits, which may help to strengthen the immune system and decrease depression.
Main Effects: Frankincense is anti-asthmatic, strengthens the immune system and is anti-tumoral.
Applications: Frankincense can be diffused, used topically, orally, and the resins can be burned as incense.
Safety Data: Frankincense is non-toxic, and non-irritating to the skin. It can be applied directly or blended with other oils.
Egyptian tradition says that “Frankincense is good for everything from gout to a broken head” or in other words “good from head to toe”. If in doubt, use Frankincense.”
