Frankincense oil is extracted from the gum or resin of frankincense or olibanum trees, whose scientific name is Boswellia carteri. The main components of this essential oil are alpha-pinene, actanol, bornyl acetatelinalool, octyl acetate, incensole, and incensole acetate. Frankincense has been a popular ingredient in cosmetics and incense burners for centuries. It has even been found in the remains of ancient Egyptian and Anglo-Saxon civilizations. Furthermore, it is closely associated with religious traditions and rites, particularly the Christian tradition.

Frankincense Essential Oil Health Benefits

Apart from being used as a cosmetic and a fragrance, frankincense oil has numerous medicinal uses, which are summarized below.

Boosts Immune System

Frankincense oil is effective as an antiseptic, and even the fumes or smoke obtained from burning it has antiseptic and disinfectant qualities that eliminate the germs as the smoke filters them out. [1] It can be applied on wounds to protect them from tetanus and becoming septic, without any side effects. It is equally good for internal wounds and protects them from developing infections.

Improves Oral Health

The same antiseptic qualities also make frankincense oil a useful preventive measure against oral issues, like bad breathtoothachescavitiesmouth sores, and other infections. Look for natural oral care products that include frankincense oil if you enjoy the flavor or aroma, and want to include a strong antiseptic in your health regimen. You can even create your own all-natural toothpaste with frankincense oil and baking soda or a mouthwash with water and peppermint oil.

Astringent Property

The astringent property of Frankincense oil has many benefits. It strengthens the gumshair roots, tones and lifts skin, contracts musclesintestines, and blood vessels, and thereby gives protection from premature loss of teeth and hair. This astringent qualityalso reduces the appearance of wrinkles and combats the loss of firmness of intestines, abdominal muscles, and limbs associated with age. [2] Above all, frankincense acts as a coagulant, helping to stop bleeding from wounds and cuts. This astringent property also helps relieve diarrhea.

Regulates Menstruation

Frankincense essential oil reduces obstructed and delayed menstruation and delays the advent of menopause. It also helps to cure other symptoms associated with menses and pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS), such as pain in the abdominal region, nauseaheadachefatigue, and mood swings.

Prevents Gas Buildup

Frankincense oil eliminates gas and prevents it from building up in the body. This removal of excess gas from the intestines also gives relief from associated problems like stomach aches, pain in the abdominal region and chest, abnormal amounts of sweating, uneasiness, indigestion, and many other related conditions.

Reduces Scars

This is an interesting property of Frankincense oil, and since skin care and anti-aging are hot topics these days, this essential oil has become even more important! [1] When applied topically or inhaled, it can make the scars and marks of boilsacne, and pox on the skin fade at a much faster rate. This also includes the fading of stretch marks, surgery marks, and fat cracks associated with pregnancy and delivery.

 

Promotes Digestion

Suffering from indigestion due to that turkey last night? A patient with chronic indigestion and acidity? Fed up with those antacids? You should try Frankincense oil instead. This oil has digestive properties without any side effects, and it facilitates digestion the way most medicines should, unlike common antacids which only suppress the symptoms. This oil speeds up the secretion of digestive juices (gastric juices, bile, and acids) in the stomach and facilitates movement of food through the intestines by stimulating peristaltic motion. [3] This means an all-around improvement in the digestion of food.

Delays Aging

As a cytophylactic, Frankincense oil promotes regeneration of healthy cells and also keeps existing cells and tissues healthy. When you combine this aspect of frankincense oil with its powerful astringent capabilities, you have a potent anti-aging quality that frankincense oil is often used for. It can help you eliminate sun spots, remove micro-wrinkles around the eyes and cheeks, and generally tone and tighten skin all over your body, while simultaneously replacing old or dying cells with new and healthy ones!

Acts as Tonic

Overall, frankincense essential oil tones and boosts health and is, therefore, considered a tonic. It benefits all the systems operating in the body, including the respiratory, digestive, nervous, and excretory systems, while also increasing strength by aiding the absorption of nutrients into the body. [4] Furthermore, frankincense oil strengthens the immune system and keeps you strong.

Stimulates Urination

If you think that Lasix and its variants are the only drugs that can help you release water from the body through urination, you are incorrect. These pharmaceutical options may be instantaneous, but not very safe. Frankincense essential oil is a natural and safe alternative. It promotes urination and helps you lose that extra water weight, as well as fats, sodiumuric acid, and various other toxins from the body, with the added advantage of lowering blood pressure. The best part about this is that frankincense essential oil is completely safe and has no adverse side effects.

Reduces Respiratory Issues

It soothes cough and eliminates phlegm deposited in the respiratory tracts and the lungs. [5] Frankincense essential oil also provides relief from bronchitis and congestion of nasal tract, larynxpharynxbronchi, and lungs. Its antidepressant and anti-inflammatory properties also help relax the breathing passages, which can reduce the dangers of asthma attacks, and its antiseptic qualities give it the reputation of being an immune system booster! [2] It also eases body pain, headaches, toothaches, and balances the rise in body temperature commonly associated with colds.

Relieves Stress

Frankincense oil is very effective as a sedative because it induces a feeling of mental peace, relaxation, satisfaction, and spirituality. [6] It also awakens insight, makes you more introspective and lowers anxietyanger, and stress. When you are feeling anxious or if you anticipate some sort of stressful episode, add some frankincense oil to a diffuser or a vaporizer. It promotes deep breathing and relaxation, which can open your breathing passages and reduce blood pressure, moving your mental state back to calmness.

Keeps Uterus Healthy

This oil is very good for uterine health. Since it regulates the production of the estrogenhormone, it reduces the chances of post-menopause tumor or cyst formation in the uterus, also known as uterine cancer. In terms of the pre-menopausal period, it keeps a woman’s uterus healthy by regulating proper menstrual cycles. It also treats or regulates gynecologic conditions or stressors that can lead to complicated dysfunctions in certain women. [7]

Speeds up Healing

Simply apply a diluted solution of this oil on wounds, or use it after blending with a skin cream, and your wounds will heal faster and will also be protected from infections. [8] This oil is equally beneficial in healinginternal wound, cuts, and ulcers.

Other Benefits

Frankincense oil relieves pain associated with rheumatism and arthritis. It helps to heal boils, infected wounds, acne, circulatory problems, insomnia, and various types of inflammation as well.
