Frankincense Essential Oil (Boswellia Carterii)
Frankincense essential oil
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 with focusing the mind
and overcoming stress and despair.*
Frankincense has been used therapeutically in European and American hospitals
and is the subject of substantial research. It is also a valuable ingredient in skin care products for aging and dry skin. Most essential oils work best when blended
with each other. The right combination will enhance the effects and power of the
essential oils. For some basic "oil recipes", check out our Recipe page or visit

"A dear friend of mine was caring for an elderly lady who had a patch
of skin cancer on her face. When she applied a high quality, therapuetic
grade essential oil of Frankincense (she had tried a cheap brand of Frankincense prior),
the spot on her face cleared up and healed within 2 days."
Frankincense for Emotions
"I have been impressed with how frankincense oil has helped my father's emotional stability. He has a
reoccurring basal cell cancerous growth on his nose/eye area. Surgery would be too
traumatic for him since he had the same surgery 5 years ago and now it is back. I learned how frankincense
can pass the blood brain barrier and also affect his fragile emotions (almost 85 years old). Everyday I
twice come by and we rub it on our hands and then rub it on his forehead and nose. It is a relaxing little 'ritual' we do everyday.
My sister says 'What's up with dad? He has called me several times and seems to be in a great mood joking
and laughing' to which I said 'What is wrong with that?' If all it does is help with his emotions and gives
him a positive outlook on life and does nothing for the cancer we will be happy but we hope for the best as
NOW he can smell out of his left nostril where before for years he could smell NOTHING! Something good is
happening and will continue our daily rubbing on of Frankincense oil!
Single Oils: Peppermint, White Fir, Douglas Fir and Wintergreen/Birch.
Lavender with Lemongrass, Marjoram or Ginger."
Plantar Wart "I used Frankincense to get rid of my huge plantar wart on my foot. My doctor tried to burn
it off two different times and was unsuccessful. And, it cost me $300 out of pocket.
I put one drop of Young Living's Frankincense on my wart almost every night and sometimes
in the morning for about 3 weeks. It had started to shrink but not yet gone away when I ran
out of my Frankincense. I did not put any more of the oil on my wart and yet it continued to disappear
completely over the next few weeks. I cannot even tell it was ever there now.
I am currently using the same technique to take a wart off my young daughter's thumb.
The wart is responding and is starting to go away. She is having no discomfort with this
treatment and Frankincense helps uplift her attitude."
