Today’s article is going to be about the benefits of Frankincense. I know some of you are scratching your head on that one. In case you didn’t know, Frankincense comes from the Boswellia tree, which is native to the Arabian Peninsula, northeast Africa and parts of India. This substance has been harvested for thousands of years. The oil is made from the sap of this tree, and is only harvested two or three times a year, as to not damage the tree.
This oil has numerous benefits to us and our bodies, such as:
• It helps with the healing of cuts, scrapes or burns.
• It can help reduce and fade scars.
• It can help support healthy cell regeneration within our bodies.
• It contains Boswellic acid, which mimics the actions of aspirin and ibuprofen, so it can help reduce inflammation.
• It is also good for our oral health. Many people find that making homemade toothpaste or mouthwash with Frankincense, have noticed that it helps with bad bacteria in the mouth, which can cause bad breath.
• There has been some evidence that it helps balance estrogen production.
There are many ways that you can incorporate this oil into your life:
1. You can use it topically on your skin
2. You can add some drops of oil to your diffuser
3. Add a few drops to your washcloth in a hot shower
4. Make a homemade facial steam
5. Rub a drop of oil on your nails and cuticles to achieve that manicured look.
6. Add 1 or 2 drops of Frankincense to the bottom of your feet to achieve relaxation and a balanced mood
