The word Frankincense comes from the Old French expression “franc encens”, meaning high-quality incense. Commonly found in India, it comes from the Boswellia Tree. It is also found in other parts of the world, with the finest resin found in Somalia. Frankincense is derived from the sap of a tree, unlike Neem and Tulsi, which are themselves trees.
FRANKINCENSE IN SKINCARE:
- Frankincense oil is a natural astringent
- Frankincense rejuvenates damaged skin.
- It is also helpful in reducing the appearance of stretch marks and scars.
- Frankincense strengthens skin, improving tone and elasticity. An excellent anti-ageing oil, its unique ability to regenerate cells gives the skin a lifted, youthful look.
- Frankincense works to heal dry or cracked skin all over the body.
- Inhaling frankincense oil has been shown to reduce heart rate and blood pressure. Hence, it works well for anxiety and depression.
- Burning Frankincense has amazing effects on our internal peace. Starting the day off with this calming and rich scent sets the pace for a mindful and intentional way of being.
Sustainable sourcing of these trees has become very important, as there is a fear that frankincense tree populations are being threatened due to woodlands being converted into agricultural lands.
