The oil has been around for centuries and we know that it was used in Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome a part of their medical treatments. Today we use it in many skin preparations especially for mature or dry skin and has some reputation as a skin healer. It is also highly effective in helping to achieve emotional balance.
Frankincense blends beautifully with citrus oils such as orange and lemon, but also blends with a heavier scent such as sandalwood.
One of my favourite bath blends is called "Inspiration"
3 drops Frankincense
1 drop lime
Next time you are feeling stressed don't just reach for the lavender - try some frankincense too.
