Along with myrrh, frankincense was an important enough item to be brought to the birth of the savior by the Magi, and it’s still utilized by the Catholic Church and other religious institutions to this day. Its scent has been described as balsamic, spicy, and sweet.
There are several varieties of frankincense, though carterii frankincense is one of the most popular for use on the skin. Frankincense oil is non-toxic and non-irritating but always check with your pediatrician before using frankincense on children under 12.
Mix frankincense with a floral or citrus oil and jojoba oil for a homemade skin-care lotion that will leave your skin nourished, erase wrinkles, and leave you smelling great. Frankincense is popular in the diffuser for its anti-anxiety and calming effects. Frankincense is especially popular in the diffuser during cold and flu season as it can act as an expectorant and decongestant and may help asthma symptoms.
