Frankincense and Myrrh Essential Oil Benefits

And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense and myrrh (Matthew 2:11).

Frankincense (Boswellia carteri) has a sweet, warm, balsamic aroma that is stimulating and elevating to the mind. Useful for visualizing, improving one’s spiritual connection, and centering, it has comforting properties that help focus the mind and overcome stress and despair. Frankincense is considered the holy anointing oil in the Middle East, where it has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years. More recently, it has been used in European and American hospitals and is the subject of substantial research. Frankincense is also a valuable ingredient in skin care products for aging and dry skin. The ancient Egyptians used it in rejuvenation face masks. Frankincense has an approximate ORAC of 6,125 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter.  EarthKosher Certified

Traditional uses: Used to treat every conceivable ill known to man. Frankincense was valued more than gold during ancient times, and only those with great wealth and abundance possessed it. Today, researchers have discovered that Frankincense contains sesquiterpenes, which help stimulate the limbic system of the brain (the center of emotions) as well as the hypothalamus, pineal, and pituitary glands. The hypothalamus is the master gland of the human body which controls the release of many hormones including the thyroid and growth hormone.

Other uses: depression, ulcers, supports the immune system, asthma, allergies, bites (insect and snake), cancer, respiratory infections, headaches, diphtheria, inflammation, high blood pressure, herpes, typhoid, hemorrhaging, tonsillitis, and much, much more!
