Frankincense Pure Essential Oil
Woody and earthy aroma. Its sedative and comforting fragrance is believed to strengthen and invigorate the respiratory system.
Frankincense essential oil is extracted from the dried and distilled resin of the Frankincense tree, which is native to specific regions of Africa and the Middle East. Name origin comes from the French term “franc encens,” which translates to “high-quality incense." Pregnant women and individuals with bleeding disorders are cautioned on the usage of Frankincense because it is an emmenagogue that has blood thinning effects, which may increase their risk of irregular bleeding.
