Welcome, dear reader, to the Yuana Aroma blog. Today, we embark on a journey to explore one of the most precious and versatile essential oils in our collection: frankincense essential oil.

Frankincense, also called a gift from the gods, is a resin extracted from the Boswellia trees that grow in the dry mountains of the Middle East, Africa and India. Since centuries when it was traded along the Silk Route, it has been prized for its calming and uplifting aroma to its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. Frankincense essential oil has a complex soft, sweet, earthy, citrusy aroma while also being woody and balsamic.

What Are the Benefits of Frankincense Essential Oil?

  1. Frankincense Essential Oil Acts As An Anti-inflammatory: Some research into frankincense has shown that it prevents the production of leukotrienes which is the main culprit in asthma and wheezing. Majority of the study participants got relief when exposed to frankincense daily.

  2. Frankincense Essential Oil Improves Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis Pain: A few studies have shown that frankincense reduces joint swelling and pain as compared to a placebo. Patients also reported increased mobility as compared to those on the placebo.

  3. Frankincense Essential Oil May Have Anti-Cancer Properties: Some small in-vitro studies have shown frankincense to be effective against certain types of cancers like colon, breast, skin, prostate and pancreatic. The compounds in frankincense inhibited the formation of DNA in cancer cells. So for a holistic approach to the treatment of cancer, it can be inhaled through diffusers or applied topically.

  4. Frankincense Essential Oil Can Reduce Anxiety: Frankincense essential oil is a powerful ally for those struggling with anxiety, depression, and other emotional challenges. It has always been part of religious ceremonies as its aroma can calm the soul and ensure peace within.

  5. Frankincense Essential Oil Improves Sleep Quality: Studies have shown that frankincense essential oil in the form of diffuser oils and pillow mists improve sleep quality by inducing deep sleep and also by helping you to fall sleep quicker.
