So why is Frankincense my go-to-bottle of essential oils? Because it does so much!!!! Clinical studies show an array of goodness in this little bottle! Frankincense (B. Serrata) is effective related to asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn's disease, osteoarthritis, and collagenous colitis! (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19091760) Boswellia serrata (Frankincense) posses anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic and analgesic activity! This makes it a great choice for joint pain and inflammation. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12622457
In aromatherapy, Frankincense has been use for generations for relaxation giving almost a sedative feeling. Frankincense is also known to be a truly gentle essential oil for use on all ages. Frankincense can be affordable! While most brands offer Frankincense at high retail prices, Josiah's Oils Offers a bottle under $20.00. I keep a bottle on hand for inhalation and add drops to carrier oil for joint pain and skin care - Frankincense is awesome at battling wrinkles and sagging too.
