Frankincense – The “King” of Oils



You have probably heard Frankincense mentioned at church as one of the precious gifts presented to Jesus at his birth.   Therefore, with the holiday around the corner, it only seems fitting that we feature Frankincense and educate those who may not know why this oil is considered the “King” of oils.

Frankincense is so versatile; there is no question why ancient civilizations would use it in the most sacred ceremonies and practices.  The aroma of Frankincense is said to promote feelings of satisfaction, peace, relaxation and overall wellness.  It is used for its beautification and rejuvenation qualities in skin, and promotes cellular health and immunity.  Frankincense is used to support the immune system, fight infection, reduce inflammation and improve anxiety.
