Frankincense (Boswellia frereana)
Frankincense is from the Burseraceae family (resinous trees and shrubs). The oil is steam distilled from the gum or resin.
One of the oldest medical documents known to man, dating back to 1500 B.C., recorded the use of frankincense oil, by physicians and priests alike, for the treatment of disease and illness. Today, modern science is giving validity to these early ancient practices and, once again, the essential oil of frankincense is bringing new hope for achieving and maintaining optimal health.
Some of the therapeutic properties of frankincense include: analgesic, anti-depressant, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, astringent, diuretic and sedative.
