Frankincense and it’s Benefit for Skin Care

Frankincense and Skin Care Benefits

I started putting Frankincense into the skin with a galvanic machine as a final part of some of my facials to help repair and soothe skin from irritation and the results have been wonderful. (side note, it’s not my favorite scent but the benefits are worth it.)

This fragrant oil is extracted from the Boswellia sacra tree or Boswellia carterii. It is also known as Shallaki or Salai Guggulu in Ayurveda. Possessing a number of health benefits, frankincense oil is also used in skin care products.

A little History: (on behalf of Frankincense and frankincense oil are known to have several medicinal properties. In ancient times, people used it widely to treat a number of health conditions. In fact, at one point in history, frankincense trade became the most lucrative trade in the world! Fortunately, modern scientists are slowly waking up to the benefits offered by this amazing resin-like natural wonder. Apart from playing a key role in aromatherapy, frankincense oil is also known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.

Here are some skin care benefits about this super oil that many people might not now:

  • Skin Conditioner: Usage of Frankincense floral water can act as skin conditioner if used externally. Regular use of this natural conditioner can leave your skin soft and smooth.

  • Scar Reduction: A blemish free skin is a dream for many. Frankincense can help in fading away acne, surgery marks, stretch marks and other types of scars from the skin, making your dream a reality.

  • Regeneration Of Skin: Frankincense can reduce wrinkles and fine lines by regenerating healthy skin cells. The use of this sap can keep you looking as young as you feel in your heart! This is considered to be the best Frankincense skin care benefit.

  • Strengthens Finger Nails: Application of frankincense on fingernails can strengthen weak or brittle and delicate fingernails.

  • Anti-Infection: Frankincense, being a disinfectant, can be used to clean wounds or cuts, making way for quicker healing without leaving scars behind.

  • Cures Warts: Application of frankincense to warts twice a day for a couple of weeks can show gradual cure.

  • Insect Bites: A drop of frankincense oil has the ability to reduce the swelling caused due to insect bites. It also helps in quicker healing.

I personally use all DoTERRA essential oils, but you can buy frankincense in any health store.
