For thousands of years Frankincense Essential Oil has been considered precious for spiritual and meditative purposes, protecting against airborne illnesses and the maintenance of youthful skin.
Warm, woody, sweet, spicy, calming and consciousness-expanding, frankincense has been used in religious ceremonies for centuries, as it promotes meditation and prayer.
Frankincense is used to treat anxiety, stress and tension and is helpful for calming the mind, aiding the attainment of a meditative state. It slows the breath rate, which is one of the signs of deep relaxation.
Its astringent properties make Frankincense helpful in clearing the respiratory channels affected by cold or flu. It also has tissue regeneration capabilities, so it is both helpful in decreasing fine lines and wrinkles on facial skin as well as healing scars and wounds. Frankincense also has pain-relieving properties.
For Whole Body Massage, you may dilute up to 2% maximum in jojoba or hazelnut oil. (2% is approximately 1 teaspoon (5ml) of essential oil per 1 cup (250ml) of carrier oil, or about 10 drops essential oil to a tablespoon (15 ml) of carrier oil.)
How to Use:
Depending on the climate, CO2 essential oils can sometimes not be liquid at room temperature. If this is the case, simply run the closed bottle underneath water from the hot water tap for a couple of minutes in order to liquefy it. Please be careful not to burn yourself with the hot water. Alternatively you can slowly lower the bottle into a saucepan of boiling water for a couple of minutes, but be careful not to burn yourself or to let the bottle touch the bottom of the saucepan.
Non-toxic, non-irritating, and non-sensitizing. Avoid during pregnancy.
