Frankincense & Frankincense Vitality


Frankincense has been traded around the Middle East for over 5,000 years. Not only is it mentioned frequently in the Bible, it also appears in the Ebers Papyrus, an ancient Egyptian scroll from approximately 1500 BCE, that documents its prevalent use in ancient times. The most famous use of Frankincense is in the Bible at the story of Christ’s birth, when the three Magi gave the Christ three gifts- gold, Frankincense and Myrrh (Myrrh is also an essential oil)

To obtain Frankincense, the boswellia carterii tree is cut, and a thick, saplike resin  slowly oozes out of the tree. Once the resin dries, it is collected and steam distilled.  It is also a key ingredient in many Young Living products, including Boswellia Wrinkle Cream, Brain Power™, Awaken™, Highest Potential™, and Forgiveness™
