Frankincense oil has a woody, earthy, spicy, slightly fruity/sweet aroma and is pale greenish-yellow in color. Extracted from the tree bark, this milky white sap is allowed to harden into a gum resin, and then scraped off in tear-shaped droplets. Frankincense, together with Myrrh, was the first gum to be used as incense. The Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, Israelites and numerous other cultures used Frankincense as part of their religious ceremonies. Arabia was the center of the ‘Spice Trade Route’, where many precious aromatics and herbs were traded. However, it was the revenue from Frankincense that brought the most wealth to the region.
The therapeutic properties of Frankincense oil are antiseptic, astringent, carminative, cicatrisant, cytophylactic, digestive, diuretic, emmenagogue, expectorant, sedative, tonic, uterine, vulnerary and expectorant.
