Frankincense Essential Oil Uses & Benefits

Home / Wellness / Frankincense Essential Oil Uses & Benefits

If you’ve ever read the Christmas story, you know that Frankincense was one of the prized riches that the 3 wise men brought to Jesus when He was born, along with Myrrh and Gold. The Babylonians, Assyrians, and Egyptians have all used Frankincense for centuries in religious ceremonies and health benefits.

Today, Frankincense essential oil is known as The King of Oils due to its ability to promote a healthy inflammatory response, support cellular health, and maintain a healthy immune system. It also reduces the appearance of scars and stretch marks. What more could you ask for?


Frankincense is one of my favorite oils, in fact, I put one drop underneath my tongue before I brush my teeth every morning (it doesn’t taste great). With these benefits, why wouldn’t you use it daily?

Just keep in mind that Frankincense is one of the most adulterated (faked) oils out there and there a multiple species that don’t all have the same benefits.

 Practical uses for Frankincense essential oil:

  • Helps build and maintain a healthy immune system
  • Promotes cellular health
  • Reduces the appearance of blemishes and rejuvenates skin
  • Supports healthy immune system function
  • Promotes feelings of peace, relaxation, satisfaction, and overall wellness

Emotionally, Frankincense essential oil is The Oil of Truth. Frankincense helps recall to memory spiritual understandings, gifts, wisdom and knowledge the soul brought into the world.

Frankincense is also found in the following essential oil blends: Focus blend, Tension blend, Cellular complex blend, Anti-aging blend and the Grounding blend.

How do you use Frankincense essential oil in your home? 


Essential Oil Quality: The essential oil industry is not a regulated industry which means it’s difficult to know which brands you can trust to be truly 100% pure therapeutic grade and safe for your whole family. I did my research to find a brand I can trust. If you want to learn about the brand I personally use or order essential oils for your home, please email
