Frankincense, which is also known as olibanum, is produced from Boswellia trees. These trees produce a gum like material that is used to make Frankincense essential oil by steam purification. These oils are beneficial for our health. This tress can be grown anywhere around the globe, but the best and highest quality of oils is said to be grown in the parts of Oman. These oils are in use for a very long time and are regarded as holy oil. It is said that it is used to get connected with the god to understand each other and understand one’s truth. Thus it is widely used during meditation and prayer making a person to remove ego and go into a place where he could silence and peace
What are the benefits of Frankincense essential oil? As I said earlier, it has positive impacts on our health. If you are suffering from arthritis, it can be viable option to use it. Try to massage your joints with the help or you can inhale it directly in the form of steam. It can also be used to cure Alzheimer’s disease by putting the oil in pillow or shirt collar. You can go for a full body massage or you can only just massage your feet and toes. There are many other diseases which can be cured using it such as plague, tumour, scarring, moles, hepatitis and still counting.
Next question that strikes our mind is that how to use it? When you buy, you get list of application guidelines but some of the basic guidelines that can be followed are:-
The oil can be inhaled directly or can be spread out in a closed room.
You can directly apply the oil on your skin without diluting it. But it is highly recommended that you should first make a test of our skin as it may react.
You can add it with some carrier oil such as coconut oil if your skin is sensitive.
You can also add the oil in your food but with proper recommendation. It is not made for every brand to be used in cooking. It is not for children whose age is below 6 years.
How you can get such essential oils? There are many online sites from where you can purchase. You can find in various food stores. But try to avoid buying from grocery stores as they would not provide the right quality.
