Frankincense is a holy oil from the Middle East. As an ingredient in the holy incense, it was used anciently during sacrificial ceremonies to help improve communication with the creator. Today we use Frankincense to improve the way we deal with stress or at least the perception of how things are‘flowing or not flowing’ in our life, which is ‘stress’. Frankincense aroma has the ability to help us get into the Sympathetic Nervous system quicker, along with the Balance - Grounding blend and som other specific essential oils and blends.
Because Frankincense is high in sesquiterpenes, we know that it can go through the blood brain barrier. Scientists have stated that because of the sesquiterpenes, it may also help oxygenate the pineal and pituitary glands. Frankincense increases the activity of leukocytes, defending the body against infection. Frankincense may also help a person have a better attitude, which may help to strengthen the immune system. If everyone used more Frankincense instead of drugs, we would have healtheir and happier people and thus a better world!
