When I think of Frankincense I always picture the Three Kings with their gifts at Christmas time. Even though I didn't ever really know what it was, I did know that it was valuable. As it turns out, Frankincense (Boswellia Carteri) was more valuable than gold in ancient times and it is still used today to treat illness.
Frankincense oil is known for supporting the immune system, eases bad moods, and has muscle-relaxing benefits. Frankincense stimulates the limbic system of the brain, and the hypothalamus, pineal, and pituitary glands.
So, how can you use Frankincense oil? Gosh, there are lots of uses! But here are a few to get you started.
- Concentration – use 1 to 2 drops on your temples and the back of your neck to aid concentration.
- Immune System – Apply 1 to 3 drops on each foot to support your immune system.
- Healthy Maintenance – Diffuse or apply topically for general health maintenance.
