Boswellia trees have been celebrated for centuries. The Babylonians & Assyrians would burn the tree resin in religious ceremonies & for contemplative meditation. The ancient Egyptians used it in perfumes & salves for soothing skin. Oil from the resin has long been used in Ayurvedic & traditional Chinese health practices. dōTERRA Premium Frankincense essential oil is a proprietary blend of resins from four species of Boswellia trees, Boswellia carterii, Boswellia sacra, Boswellia papyrifera & Boswellia frereana. Considered the ‘king of oils’, Frankincense has extraordinary health benefits when used topically or taken internally.* According to pre-clinical research, Frankincense essential oil may promote healthy cellular function when taken internally.† Experimental research suggests internal use of Frankincense, high in α-pinene, may provide soothing effects to the body.* Because of the oil’s significant level of α α-pinene, preclinical research also indicates Frankincense may help maintain healthy skin structure.† Nourishing & clarifying as an addition to daily skin care, the oil’s warm, spicy, herbal aroma creates a relaxing yet uplifting atmosphere. Because Boswellia species used in dōTERRA Frankincense essential oil grow best in different soils & regions, dōTERRA Co-impact Sourcing® is helping to diversify supply pressure & create future sustainable harvesting solutions
