My top desert island oil and the most used in my aromatherapy box. It has a sweet, resinous, fresh fragrance and the oil is steam distilled from the resin, extracted from the bark of the frankincense tree. Used by the old civilasations for beautifying and in spiritual practices. It has excellent rejuvenating properties which is why we use it in our Face Cream and Body Lotion. It also promotes a deep state of relaxation and deepens and slows the breath which makes it perfect for vapourising (burning) when meditating. I also believe it protects and enhances the electro magnetic field (aura) and is useful when one is feeling vulnerable and anxious.
