Frankincense Serrata Essential Oil

Boswellia serrata

Extraction Method: Steam distilled from Oleo Gum Resin
Aroma: Balsamic, lemon, woodsy
Origin: India

Our Frankincense oil derives from the Boswellia serrata tree that is native to India. This small tree produces a natural oleo gum resin that exudes from incisions in the bark and hardens into amber tears. The Oleo gum resin produces individual compounds that have been found to have potent anti-inflammatory, and possibly anti-cancer, results. Among the valuable Boswellia tree extracts that researchers have recognized, many stand-out as being most beneficial, including terpenes and boswellic acids, which are both strongly anti-inflammatory and effective pain relievers.

Medicinal action:

  • Frankincense can inhibit the production of key inflammatory molecules associated with conditions like arthritis, back pain, muscle, and joint pain.
  • It can be useful in helping to limit the breakdown of the cartilage tissue and has been shown to significantly decrease levels of painful inflammation, making it a natural treatment option for pain-related conditions.
  • It is believed that frankincense oil transmits messages to the limbic system of the brain, which is known to influence the nervous system.Frankincense can help improve circulation and lower symptoms of joint pain or muscle pain related to conditions like arthritis.

Additional benefits and uses:
Frankincense from Boswellia Serrata trees creates a beautifully fresh,  woodsy, essential oil that is often used to support overall skin health, especially in the healing of scars or minor topical injuries. It is also renown for its ability to decrease visible signs of aging by acting as an astringent by tightening the skin and promoting cellular regeneration. It can provide respiratory relief, as well, helping to clear congestion and mucous.
