Also known as Olibanum, Frankincense essential oil is made from a resin from the Boswellia trees in Somalia, Yemen, Oman, and Ethiopia. Egyptians used Frankincense for embalming and to “bring into the next world” because of its incredible healing capabilities. Therefore, Frankincense has been utilized to enhance spirituality, meditation and prayer. Do an inhalation before a yoga practice to slow down the breath and enhance pranayama.
Frankincense essential oil is a very gentle oil, and like lavender can be used undiluted on the skin safely for all ages and all skin types. For dry, mature skin it helps to soften fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage and remove dark spots. These anti-aging benefits are why frankincense is featured in the Veriditas Rose Regenerative Facial oil. Apply to face nightly before moisturizer and use consistently for best results.
The antiseptic qualities of this oil can help prevent bad breath, cavities, toothaches, mouth sores and other infections. Frankinsence and myrrh have long been touted for their ability to heal mouth infections. Both are key ingredients in the Veriditas GumDropps Formula.
Anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, Frankincense heals skin infections, acne, boils, hard to heal wounds, scars, skin growths (tags) and distended varicose veins. Combine your Frankincense with Lavender, Tea tree or one of the Veriditas Condition Specific Wellness Formulas.*
Use 5 drops Frankincense and 5 drops Rosemary cineol oil on a brush to stimulate hair growth and strengthen hair roots.
