Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil is extracted from the resin of Boswellia Sacra trees, growing wild in southern Oman and Yemen only. The oil is hydro-distilled from the resin for 12-16 hours in our Vernon, BC distillery, to produce the purest oil with the highest concentration of beneficial elements possible.
These valuable elements provide powerful properties for medicinal uses and have numerous health benefits that are analgesic, anti-arthritic, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiseptic, astringent, carminative, digestive, diuretic, expectorant, sedative, tonic and vulnerary.
Boost the immune system and prevent illness:
The immune-enhancing abilities of frankincense oil help to destroy bacteria and viruses while supporting your overall health. The oil can be used topically to prevent germs from forming on the skin (1 drop of frankincense essential oil mixed with a teaspoon of carrier oil such as coconut oil or jojoba oil), internally as a tonic (1-2 drops in a glass of water or other beverage), or by diffusing it in your home.
Scientists have found that there is an agent within frankincense which induces cancerous cells to close themselves down. According to the latest studies, “Cancer starts when the DNA code within the cell’s nucleus becomes corrupted. It seems frankincense has a re-set function. It can tell the cell what the right DNA code should be. Frankincense separates the “brain” of the cancerous cell – the nucleus – from the “body” – the cytoplasm, and closes down the nucleus to stop it reproducing corrupted DNA codes.”
Reduce stress, anxiety and negative emotions:
When inhaled, Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil has been shown to reduce heart rate and high blood pressure. It immediately induces the feeling of peace, relaxation and satisfaction. The fragrant aroma will calm the body, mind, and spirit during meditation to aid in connecting with the higher self.
Frankincense oil has anti-anxiety and depression-reducing abilities, but unlike prescription medications it does not have negative side effects or cause unwanted drowsiness.
To experience the calming effect of frankincense oil, rub 2 drops of oil between the palms of your hands and inhale deeply or add a few drops to a hot bath for instant stress relief. Help fight anxiety by adding a few drops of oil to an oil diffuser or vaporizer to enjoy daily relaxation.
Anti-aging skin care and acne remedy:
As an astringent, our Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil has the ability to strengthen skin and improve its tone, elasticity, and defense mechanisms against bacteria or blemishes. It helps to protect skin cells, while toning and lifting the skin. Frankincense oil also heals wounds, dry or cracked skin, and reduces the appearance of scars, large pores, acne, wrinkles, and stretch marks. For mature skin, it can help lift and tighten skin to naturally slow signs of aging such as under the eyes and the chin/neck area.
Mix 6 drops of Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil to one ounce of unscented oil or cream and apply it directly to the skin. Just a drop applied to a small cut will help stop the bleeding. Always do a small patch area test first to test for possible allergic reactions.
Inflammation and pain relief:
Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil is well known for its anti-inflammatory ability making it a natural treatment option for pain-related conditions that affect the muscles, joints, and tendons. It can be useful in helping prevent the breakdown of the cartilage tissue and has been shown to significantly reduce levels of dangerous and painful inflammation. It can inhibit the production of key inflammatory molecules associated with conditions like arthritis, asthma, painful bowel disorders like IBS and Crohn’s disease.
To improve circulation and symptoms of join or muscle pain combine 8-10 drops of oil with one ounce of a carrier oil and massage the painful areas.
For digestive disorders and asthma, you can add a couple of drops of oil to a diffuser or place a towel over your head and in turn over a bowl of steaming hot water and inhale for several minutes.
Help alleviate stomach pain and cramping by adding 2 drops of oil to 2 teaspoons of carrier oil and gently massage onto the lower abdomen.
To reduce pain from minor cuts and bug bites, add 1 drop of frankincense oil to a teaspoon of carrier oil and apply directly to the skin.
Due to its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, oral health problems can be prevented naturally with our Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil. It is a great addition to any oral hygiene regimen for reducing gum inflammation and avoiding dental infections. The antiseptic qualities can help prevent gingivitis, tooth decay, bad breath, cavities, toothaches, mouth sores and other infections from occurring.
Simply put a drop of oil on your finger and rub it on your gums. You can also make your own toothpaste by mixing ½ oz. coconut oil, ½ oz. baking soda, and 4 drops of Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil.
Frankincense oil is effective as an antiseptic and can be applied on wounds to protect them from tetanus and becoming septic. Just a drop of oil on a small cut will also stop the bleeding.
Our Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil is 100% organic, pure, therapeutic grade essential oil. This means that our oil can be ingested for healing internal wounds, cuts and ulcers as well. Put a drop under the tongue a few times a day, rather than take a few drops all at the same time once a day, as essential oils do not remain in the system for a long time. Alternatively, you can add a drop to a teaspoon of coconut oil or honey which will assist with absorption.
Ease cold and flu symptoms:
Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil is an antiseptic and disinfectant with the ability to eliminate cold and flu germs from the home and the body naturally. This oil is a great natural expectorant that can drive away a cough and phlegm deposited in the respiratory tracts and lungs. It will act as an anti-inflammatory in the nasal passages, making breathing easier, even for those with allergies or asthma. It also gives relief in bronchitis and congestion of nasal tract, larynx and pharynx, bronchi and lungs.
Add a few drops of frankincense oil to a handkerchief and inhale for the respiratory benefits, or use an oil diffuser. A few drops added to a teaspoon of carrier oil then rubbed into the lung area on the chest and back can help improve lung function too.
To help relieve congestion, put 2-3 drops of oil into a small bowl and pour hot, but not boiling, water on top of the oil. Put your face over the bowl, cover your head with a towel, and close your eyes and breathe in deeply.
Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil can help relieve gastrointestinal discomfort such as gas, constipation, stomach aches, irritable bowel syndrome, and PMS cramps. Like digestive enzymes it also helps speed up the digestion of food. By speeding up the secretion of digestive enzymes the oil increases urine production, relaxes the muscles of the digestive tract and also helps improve circulation needed for proper digestive health.
Over time, frankincense oil can also be beneficial in reducing symptoms of leaky gut syndrome, chronic colitis, ulcers, Crohn’s disease and IBS.
Drink a glass of water with 1-2 drops of frankincense oil for relief of current symptoms or daily for chronic issues.
