Frankincense20 Uses for Frankincense Essential Oil, sometimes referred to as olibanum, is an aromatic bark resin obtained from trees of the genus Boswellia. It’s a biblical oil with a long history, dating back thousands of years, and was one of the three gifts presented to baby Jesus by the wise men.

Frankincense is a multi-faceted essential oil that possesses a warm, sweet aroma. The ancient Egyptians bought boatloads of the oil and used it for incense; insect repellent; perfume; salves for wounds and sores; ground into powder as an ingredient in the heavy eyeliner we see in depictions of Egyptian women; as well as key ingredients in the embalming process. Many cultures used frankincense as an offering to their higher powers, and still do today.

Frankincense is fresh, woody, and spicy and is believed to have a centering effect on the emotions.* It is traditionally used for meditation and spiritual growth, though it’s great for many other uses as well — a truly versatile oil that should be in everyone’s essential oil collection!
