Every time I would walk into church on Sundays, as a child, there was this aroma that would fill the church. It turns out Frankincense is not just used in churches and has many benefits, for example – it can be used for “anxiety, colds, coughs, indigestion, ulcers.” (Wong. C, 2020)
PLEASE DO NOT INGEST Frankincense unless under the supervision of a doctor (Ammon). Moreover, before applying any Frankincense to you skin, please do a path test first to see if there is the possibility of an allergic reaction before applying over a larger area of skin. “Additionally, essential oils shouldn’t be applied to skin undiluted” (Wong, Cathy, 2020).
As there have not been that many studies on Frankincense, there is no recommended dosage. If a drop or two is mixed with jojoba, sweet almond or avocado oil as carrier oils, it can be placed on the skin – however IN SMALL AMOUNTS.
