Frankincense - Organic Essential Oils - 10ml
Caution! Do not use during 1st trimester of pregnancy. Save for 2nd & 3th trimester of pregnancy, but consult doctor first.
Frankincense essential oil was used by the ancients as an anointing oil, it was also recognised for its powerful repairing virtues on wounds, wrinkles, scalp/hair loss & for strengthening gums. Its warm, tranquilising and deeply absorbing aroma promotes an ambience of worldly detachment & spiritual contemplation. The aroma has been renowned for sacred uses at least since the ancient Egyptians.
The following points were gathered from a host of medical research.
Tranquilises the mind: Slows breath rate making it ideal for quiet moments of meditation and contemplation.
Skin repair: Antibiotic and cell renewing virtues make it ideal for wounds, burns, scrapes, cuts and fading scars.
Arthritis relief: helps prevent inflammation from forming and the breakdown of cartilage tissue that can cause arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Specific claims are always evidenced by clinical studies (or traditional use in aromatherapy), but not guaranteed to be successful for everyone. Contact us for more information.
Cotton ball:put a few drops in cotton balls and breathe in or (better still) place cotton in a cylindrical container first and breathe in from there. Keep the container at 10cm away and inhale 10 deep breaths. Repeat steps for desired effects 2-3 times a day. Diffuser/Vaporisation: add recommended number of drops to nebulizer or cold steam diffuser.
Bath: Add few drops to bath. To help oils disperse easily, mix first with little oil or our liquid soap before pouring into bath.
Steam/Compress for cold/flu: Add 10 drops to 100ml very warm water. Soak cloth in the scented water & wrap on desired area (ideal for bruises, wounds, muscular aches & pains and skin problems). For facial steam add 5 drops to bowl of hot water, cover head with a towel to make a tent, then steam face for a few mins.
Massages: Use 1-2% essential oil to carrier (i.e. 1-2 drops per 10ml of carrier); for children under 12 halve this amount.
