For thousands of years, people have been using essential oils in aromatherapy for the therapeutic and healing characteristics they possess.
Frankincense, also known as olibanum, is a type of essential oil used in aromatherapy that offers several health benefits, including, helping to relieve chronic stress and anxiety, reduction of pain and inflammation, boosting immunity and even possibly helping to battle cancer.
Frankincense oil is obtained from the resin of the Boswellia carterii and Boswellia sacara tree, which is commonly grown in Somalia. This tree behaves much differently from many other trees in that it can grow with very little amount of soil in dry and desolate settings.
The word frankincense is derived from “franc encens,” meaning ‘quality incense’ in old French. Frankincense has been linked to several different religions over the years, particularly Christianity, as it was one of the gifts given to Jesus by the wise men on the day of his birth.
