Frankincense Essential Oil just happens to be my all-time favorite essential oil. It smells clean, warm, and spicy - almost woody. For me, it brings mental clarity and a sense of internal peace that no other scent can conjure. It is no wonder that it has been used in religious ceremonies for centuries and was mentioned 20 times in the Bible. The Magi brought Frankincense, Myrrh, and gold to the sweet, baby Jesus. Science can now prove there was GREAT wisdom in these gift choices.
Frankincense Essential Oil can be used for stress and anxiety. It calms the mind, slows breath rate, and is extremely helpful in bringing one into a meditative state. Deep relaxation happens with ease when using Frankincense.
The astringent properties of Frankincense help clear the respiratory channels affected by cold or flu. It also regenerates tissue. This makes it a great choice for anti-aging products, scar treatments, and wounds. Wounds also benefit from the pain-relieving properties of Frankincense.
Frankincense comes from sticky, fragrant resin harvested from the Boswellia shrub, native to the Middle East. When the bark of the shrub is disturbed, it oozes out droplets of this precious substance. The beads of gummy resin are meticulously collected and then distilled for their essence.

*** As a company, we have chosen not to sell essential oil singles. We believe a properly formulated synergy amplifies the sum of all its parts. While each essential oil is fantastic on its own, it's as a team they become mighty; we like the science of blending. Because of this, I am often asked which retail essential oil company I trust for singles. Ancient Apothecary is a brand I trust: Frankincense (the link is to a blend including three types of Frankincense).
