THE BEAUTY OF FRANKINCENSE
Frankincense, also called olibanum, is produced from the resin of the Boswellia tree. Frankincense is found in the dry, mountainous regions of India, Africa and the Middle East. Frankincense is characterized by a woody, spicy smell. It can be inhaled, absorbed through the skin, taken orally, and steeped into a tea.
REDUCES PAIN & INFLAMMATION
A potent anti-inflammatory, Frankincense alleviates joint and muscle pain, fights against the breakdown of cartilage, boosts circulation, alleviates headaches, and soothes PMS symptoms.
REPAIRS SKIN & PROMOTES REPAIR
Like elixir in a bottle, Frankincense promotes skin cell regeneration and at the same time it tones, tightens, and lifts. It works by getting rid of wrinkles, acne, dry patches, stretch marks, scars, sun spots, and even warts.
Frankincense can promote feelings of wellbeing and relaxation while fighting depression/anxiety and reducing heart rate. Inhaling Frankincense, either through a diffuser, burning as incense, or directly from the bottle, is the fastest way to effect emotions. Frankincense is usually used in spiritual practices to deepen meditation and expand consciousness.
