CHEMISTRY & SAFETY
CHEMISTRY: Although the aroma of Frankincense is considered a “base” note, the chemistry would have you thinking otherwise. It is made up of mostly Monoterpenes, which are smaller molecules commonly found in top note aromas like citruses and pines. Frankincense consists of almost 50% alpha-pinene, which was researched to have the following “actions”: anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, antispasmodic, antiviral, and the prevention of bone loss.
SAFETY: EXTERNAL USE ONLY. Keep out of reach of children. Always dilute essential oils before applying to the skin and keep away from mucous membranes. If the oil is past it’s “use by” date or stored improperly, it may cause irritation and lose therapeutic value.

PROPERTIES
Analgesic
- numbs pain
Anti-inflammatory
– alleviates inflamed areas (rashes, sore muscles, etc.)
Antiseptic
– fights germs/infections
Cicatrisant
– scar healing, promotes skin cell regeneration
Diuretic

Immunistimulant
– stimulates immune function
Skin Healing
– supports minor wound healing

HOW TO USE
Restorative Facial Serum: to one ounce of Jojoba oil, add 3 drops of Frankincense, 2 drops Myrrh, and 1 drop Lavender.
Mind Calming Bath: Always add essential oils to a carrier before adding to your bath water. Combine 6 drops of Frankincense to an ounce of Epsom or Dead Sea Salts. We recommend Dead Sea salt because of its high magnesium content.
Diffuse: Using an ultrasonic diffuser or tea light diffuser.

The Mother of Oils!
Written by Sheila Maher on 17th Oct 2016

Use this so many ways...in skin care, for healing, anointing...alone or with Myrrh and diffusing with either or both Myrrh and Copaiba. Diffused for mental clarity, healing properties and spiritual practices...I love this oil and love the purity guarantee and price from Pompeii!

Better Quality than Young Living!
Written by undefined on 16th Sep 2016

I absolutely love Pompeii Organcis products. Before I found them, I was ordering from Young Living. Not only is their Frankincense a better quality product than the competition, it's a much better price too! I will continue to order from Pompeii Organics for all of my essential oil needs.
