Frankincense essential oil gets its name from the term “franc encens,” which means “high-quality incense”. Considered to be a “pure incense,” it was the most desirable of all the other types of incense. Its potent aroma can be described as woody, earthy, and spicy with a slightly fruity undertone.
Used in aromatherapy, its sedative and comforting fragrance is believed to strengthen and invigorate the respiratory system and inspire mindfulness and balance. 
Frankincense essential oil contains properties that reduce feelings of anxiety, stimulate the immune system, and diminish signs of aging. It can be used to eliminate surface bacteria and deodorize and purify the air by eliminating harmful bacteria.
Diffusing Frankincense can work as an expectorant to clear the nasal passageway, promote the relief of congestion, and encourage easy breathing. It's sweet, woody aroma is calming and enhances mood by diminishing feelings of stress, while improving concentration and memory. Can also help with headaches. 
Used topically, its astringent and cytophylactic qualities help Frankincense oil to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, skin imperfections such as discolouration and stimulates the growth of new cells. A great oil to add a few drops to your daily skin care for anti-aging. When used on cuts, it promotes faster healing. It can also relieve the discomfort of inflammation such as redness, itching, and swelling.
