Top 10 Benefits of Frankincense Essential Oil:
Adored since ancient times, the well-known Frankincense essential oil is still utilized for its abundant health benefits, beauty regimens and known for its comforting, skin soothing, grounding, nerve relaxing and spiritual properties. It’s assumed that the oil communicates messages to the limbic system of the brain, prompting the nervous system involving mostly mood and emotions. It also has substantial meaning in Christianity and its fragrant resin is converted into an essential oil that is appreciated not only in religious practice, but also in aromatherapy and natural health. Frankincense oil can be used by either inhaling via an essential oil diffuser, vaporizer, or by applying to the skin, commonly combined with a carrier oil, such as coconut oil or jojoba oil.
One of Frankincense’s most popular use is for skin enhancement. It is known to help fade wrinkles and acne and has the ability to reinforce the skin’s tone, elasticity and even has defense mechanism properties to battle bacteria, causing those pesky zits. The oil stimulates the rejuvenation of healthy cells and also keeps the existing cells and tissues strong. Its potent astringent capabilities help to diminish wrinkles around the eyes, cheeks and generally all over the body, optimizing the skin cells’ vitality. Frankincense may be applied topically, making scars, post acne marks and pocks on the skin fade quite quickly. It can also dwindle stretch marks, surgery scars and helps heal dry and cracked skin.
Frankincense has wonderful properties to help digestion without any side effects. It eases and facilitates the process of digestion by speeding up secretion of digestive juices including hydrochloric acid (HCl), bile and digestive enzymes. It expedites movement of food through the stomach and intestines by stimulating peristaltic motion, continuing the flow from north to south with ease. Unlike typical over-the-counter antacids or other digestive “aids” from the drug store, Frankincense will not suppress the symptoms of indigestion, but rather tones the system due to its astringent properties. If you experience heart burn, bloating or any other type of indigestion after meals, try to add 1 drop of Frankincense essential oil to 4-6 oz. of water and drink before meals to alleviate discomfort.
Thanks to its antiseptic qualities, Frankincense is quite useful when it comes to oral hygiene. It can help heal bothersome disorders like cold sores, tooth decay, bad breath, tooth aches and even cavities. Try adding a couple drops to your favorite homemade toothpaste recipe.
