Benefits of Frankincense Essential Oil
Updated: Jul 24, 2022
Essential Oils have been used for thousands of years for their healing properties.
Frankincense has long been praised for its benefits with relieving stress and anxiety, pain and inflammation reduction and for boosting immunity.
Frankincense oil comes from the Boswellia tree in Somalia. It is believed that the oil when absorbed thru the skin sends messages to the limbic system influencing the nervous system.
Frankincense induces feelings of peace and relaxation and is perfect at the end of a long day or in handling a stressful job. It helps to reduce stress reactions and negative emotions. When inhaled, it has been shown to reduce heart rate and high blood pressure. Because it helps to lower levels of anxiety and stress its calming and grounding scent can help you fall asleep naturally.
Using Frankincense essential oil regularly also helps to reduce the symptoms of menstruation and menopause by balancing hormone levels. It can help to relieve pain, cramps, constipation, headaches, anxiety, nausea, fatigue and mood swings.
Frankincense has astringent properties and is wonderful for reducing blemishes and preventing wrinkles as well as helps to lift and tighten skin. Frankincense is also helpful in reducing the appearance of dark spots, stretch marks and scars.
Frankincense has very few side effects especially when only absorbed thru the skin, but it can have blood thinning effects so a person with clotting problems should talk with a doctor before using the oil.
