WHY IS IT SO GOOD
The oil of Frankincense is considered the holy anointing oil in the Middle East, where it has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years and was one of the gifts given to Christ at his birth and the ancient Egyptians used it in rejuvenation face masks.
Frankincense has always been synonymous with spirituality; like myrrh, it was a prized possession in the ancient world, equal in value to many precious gems and metals and only those with great wealth and abundance possessed it.
It is often diffused to enrich prayer, meditation, and enhance relaxation.
In addition to its anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, anti-fungal properties Frankincense oil is also a Cytophylactic meaning it promotes regeneration of healthy cells and also keeps the existing cells and tissues healthy.
As a potent astringent Frankincense has the ability to strengthen skin and improve its tone and elasticity. It can help reduce the appearance of scars and acne, and heal wounds.
