7 Amazing Benefits of Frankincense Essential Oil

You may remember frankincense as being one of the gifts that the three Kings brought to the baby Jesus upon his birth. Frankincense was once a highly prized compound that was coveted for its strong aroma. It comes from the Boswellia tree that is native to northeast Africa and India, and it is often burned and used in religious ceremonies to this day. Though frankincense is still harvested and used as it was thousands of years ago, many people today prefer to reap the amazing benefits from the essential oil that is produced from it.

Where Does Frankincense Essential Oil Come From?

Frankincense essential oil comes from the resin, or sap, inside the Boswellia tree. The sap is extracted and then left to dry and harden. Once hardened, it is then steam distilled to produce a pure essential oil. Frankincense essential oil continues to be one of the most popular essential oils due to its many amazing benefits. The scent it produces is enough to promote peace, tranquility, and overall wellness in the home. 

7 Amazing Benefits of Frankincense Essential Oil

There are so many amazing benefits of frankincense essential oil. When looking for 7 of the best, consider that frankincense essential oil is:

1) Dynamic for Dental Health. Thanks to its antiseptic properties, frankincense essential oil is a natural solution to fighting the bacteria in the mouth that can cause plaque and bad breath. This can help prevent tooth decay and oral infections. Frankincense essential oil can be added to mouthwash and toothpaste to keep gums healthy.

2) A Respiratory Illness Reducer. Frankincense essential oil can ease symptoms of bronchial and sinus infections by clearing the airways in the body.
