Frankincense essential oil is often used in prayer and meditation and is said to help the mind free itself of the ego, opening up a more spiritual consciousness. It’s also associated with a range of natural health benefits.
The boswellia carterii, or frankinscense tree (also referred to as the olibanum tree), originates in the Middle East and is recognised by its abundant pinnacle leaves and white or pale pink flowers.
Frankincense has a base note fragrance; its woody aroma with spicy undertones blending especially well with; basil, bergamot, cardamom, cedarwood, chamomile, cinnamon, clary sage, coriander, geranium and ginger.
Frankincense originates from the French word ‘franc’ meaning luxuriant. Also known as olibanum, frankincense was often presented as a gift to the gods by the ancient Egyptians and was also used (less divinely) as a rejuvenating facemask.
