A Kingly Essential Oil, Frankincense

Frankincense is considered "The King of Oils." Consider if you will, that Frankincense has a significant meaning in Christianity, and Biblically, it is listed as one of the gifts brought by the wise men to the Christ child. It can be purchased today as an essential oil that many use for religious observances and by others for its healing properties and as aromatherapy therapy.

I have not utilized essential oils for their aromatic therapy or natural health benefits. I have dabbled a bit with two or three of them. When I saw that the essential oil, Frankincense, was available to try I thought that since it is mentioned Biblically I would try it to see if it would be beneficial to me.

I have used a bit on an arthritic joint and in on-the-stove-top steam to see if I could tolerate it. I had no skin sensitivity to rubbing it on the joint; and in using it aromatically in the steam, it was not offensive to me or my husband. So I plan to try both applications for awhile to see if I get some pain relief and some respiratory relief.

I found the Simply Earth Frankincense oil light and it rubbed into the skin easily. The fragrance on my skin and in the steam was very tolerable and kind of outdoorsy. I also placed some in my bath but did not enjoy this experience.

I have no comparison of this brand to another since I am not that familiar with essential oils.
