Frankincense is an aromatic resin that has been used for centuries in religious and cultural ceremonies. It has a sweet, woody scent that is believed to be beneficial for relaxation and meditation. Frankincense Essential Oil is thought to have numerous health benefits, including reducing inflammation, boosting immunity, and relieving stress. Some research suggests that Frankincense Essential Oil may also be helpful in treating certain types of cancer.


Frankincense Essential Oil is made from the resin of the Boswellia tree. This tree is native to Somalia, Oman, Yemen, and Ethiopia. The resin is harvested from the tree and then distilled to create the essential oil.
