Hydro-distilled from the resin of the Boswellia carteri tree, the name Frankincense is derived from the “franc encens" which translates to “high-quality incense”. True enough, this "liquid gold" is considered by many as a Holy Grail owing to its many benefits as a natural antidepressant, antiseptic, anticatarrhal, expectorant, immune-stimulant, and sedative.
Frankincense also has natural astringent and anti-inflammatory properties so it's a must-have for anyone battling with signs of ageing, acne, wrinkles, and other skin blemishes. In addition, it can help reduce joint inflammation, swelling, bruises, soreness, stiffness, and pain.
Aromatically, Frankincense can be described as woody, spicy, and earthy with a slightly fruity nuance. Diffuse in times of grief, sorrow, and anxiety, to promote a healthy immune system, or when you need to elevate spiritual awareness during yoga and meditation!

Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:
Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.
Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
