Frankincense is the one essential oil I would not go without. They say, when in doubt, use Frankincense. Known as liquid gold and  perhaps the most precious of the essential oils, frankincense is an ancient oil used by the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and highly sought after by even today for its many uses, including relaxation, immune support, and mood enhancement.

History of Frankincense Essential Oil

When King Tut’s tomb was opened in 1922, alabaster jars for holding Frankincense oil were discovered. The Egyptians practically bathed in it to stay looking young. And we all know the story of how the three wise men brought is as a gift for baby Jesus. And Hippocrates, the “Father of Medicine,” used it to halt a devastating plague in ancient Greece.

Flavour Of Frankincense Essential Oil

It has a divine, rich, woody, and slightly astringent fragrance with hints of honey and citrus.

15 Ways to Use Frankincense

Jewels,

While what you are stating may be true .. it is not compliant with the FDA regulations and you may find yourself in a bit of trouble.
Please be careful in your wording.

When the pharaoh known as Tutankhamen's tomb was opened, jars with perfumed unguents were discovered. This is a combination of animal lard and resins, possible frankincense or spikenard. Sadly the ability to extract essential oils as they exist today wasn't discovered for a few thousand years after his burial.

Frankincense essential oil is a great one to have in your beauty regime, but with all essential oils (which are highly concentrated ) mixing with a carrier oil is needed as neat application on skin can cause multiple problems.

If in doubt, consult a qualified clinical aromatherapist for advice PLEASE.

Take a few drops in a gelatin capsule!!!!


What is a few drops to you? this is so irresponsible of you to suggest this...

Please seek the advice of a Qualified Aromatherapist who is fully trained to give the correct recommendations. I am sure this person means well however she is incorrect and should NOT be recommending to apply essential oils neat!


Neat application means undiluted the side effects can be burning, redness, pain, swelling even with Frankincense.


FOOD GRADE means nothing for skin applications. Young Living and DoTerra are being closely watched by the FDA and TGA because so many distributors are making many false claims and they are NOT qualified to do so.

NEVER apply neat essential oils where there is inflammation, they must be diluted.


NEVER apply essential oils undiluted to the face, they can cause sensitivity or more severe reactions. They must be diluted.


I am sharing this because recommendations like this are incorrect, harmful to people and the Aromatherapy industry!

I like Youngliving oils because Gary Young brought pure food grade oils to the USA. Go to their website. I recommend getting the starter kit. Its a screaming deal with a diffuser and about 15 different bottles including Frankincense. Let me know if you have any questions.
