For centuries, Frankincense Serrata Essential Oil has been regarded as a powerful oily ally due to its wide array of medicinal and spiritual benefits. Its spicy, lemony scent with balsamic overtones is a pure delight that can positively impact the mind, body, and soul!
The botanical name for Frankincense Serrata is Boswellia Serrata and unlike other species of Frankincense, it is uniquely harvested in India. In India, it is locally known as dhoop and in the west, it is commonly referred to as Indian Frankincense. This essential oil is extracted from the resin of the Boswellia tree through steam distillation. It has a clear, yellowish tint and a thin consistency that the skin can absorb easily.
Among the many benefits of Frankincense Serrata Essential Oil, its anti-inflammatory properties make it widely used tool in aromatherapy. It is used to treat a wide variety of inflammatory diseases such as asthma, arthritis, and Crohn’s disease. For those that suffer from muscle aches, this essential oil could be a useful tool in your arsenal due to its ability to relieve pain and swelling in the body. It is even said to be a powerful and natural alternative to non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS).
Skin concerns such as dryness and aging can also be treated with Frankincense Serrata Essential Oil and its anti-inflammatory compounds. Use it in combination with other anti-aging oils as a natural remedy to treat fine lines and wrinkles. Painful rashes, redness, and other topical skin conditions are also known to be relieved effectively with this essential oil.
When looking for a holistic approach to Cancer therapy, Frankincense Serrata Essential Oil is commonly used. The Boswellia acids in Frankincense may help inhibit cancer growth by preventing certain types of enzymes from negatively affecting DNA. As a treatment, it is applied topically for skin cancer and/or directly inhaled through a diffuser to help the body fend against with systemic forms of cancer.
Frankincense Serrata Essential Oil is also highly valued in Ayurvedic medicine and has been long regarded as a significant element to spiritual ceremonies. Its cleansing properties can make it a powerful ally to grounds the soul, clear energy, and relieve emotional strains such as anxiety and depression.
