Best Essential Oil to Reduce Swelling – Frankincense Frereana

Frankincense Frereana Essential OilWelcome the sweet, genuine friendship and support of Frankincense Frereana. This wildcrafted pure essential oil comes from the resin of Boswellia Frereana trees in Somalia which grow at higher elevations than some of the more well-known Frankincense species such as Boswellia Carterii. While most all varieties of Frankincense essential oils are known for their earthy and resinous scent, the Frereana species boasts a unique sweetness that is reminiscent of honey and mint with fresh piney notes. These nuances make it one of the best essential oils for respiratory support. Frereana’s expansive fragrance takes you straight to the mountaintops and smells exactly like what you would imagine a breath of fresh air should smell like.

Used ceremonially and in traditional medicine for centuries, Frankincense Frereana contains significant amounts of alpha-thujene, alpha-pinene, and para-cymene. Together, these chemical components are known to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-cancer properties, among other therapeutic effects. In particular, our wildcrafted Frankincense Frereana natural essential oil has much more alpha-thujene than some of the other popular varieties of Frankincense, such as Carterii and Sacra. The only type that has more is Frankincense Serrata.

Alpha-thujene has a green, woody aroma and is generally associated with Eucalyptus oils. It is easy to see how the therapeutic components of this natural oil lend themselves to supporting the breath and lungs! Its sweet and spacious aroma will not get lost in a blend — try mixing it with Bergamot, Cedarwood, or Vetiver.

Support for the Lungs, Breath and Consciousness

The relief, comfort and strength provided by this oil’s aroma also invites elevated mindsets. It is the perfect aromatherapy oil to apply before meditation, massage or during your morning/evening rituals. Frankincense Frereana promotes centeredness and clarity of mind. Imagine standing on a mountaintop and being able to see the landscape for miles around you from your elevated vantage point.

Think of Frereana seeing you in your wholeness this same way, so that you can show up as your best self, in entirety, allowing and accepting all that is. Let yourself see the perfection in both your wisdom and your “mistakes,” which often lead to intuitive invention. Find reassurance in knowing everything will be all right, and the sweetness of life always awaits.

This essential oil’s synergistic blend of chemical components and plant intelligence boosts, immune health and overall wellbeing, helping us connect to our breath. Inhale the sweetness of Frankincense Frereana to feel uplifted and focused. We love this essential oil in an aromatherapy diffuser or applied to the chest. If feeling congested, try adding a drop or two to a bowl of hot water to use as a clearing facial steam. You can also just add a few drops to the palms of your hands to cup over your nose and inhale deeply.

We also have Frankincense Frereana Resins available! Try crushing it into a fine powder with a mortar and pestle to use in different self-care practices. Create a nice exfoliating scrub by adding just add a small amount of carrier oil, honey, or essential oils to your palm with a small amount of your resin powder. Scrub the mixture around your nose, lips, and anywhere that you desire a fresh, youthful glow.

You can also create an oil infusion by adding your ground up Frereana resin and allowing it to infuse in your favorite carrier oils for 2 weeks. After straining, you can add a little bit of the Frereana Essential Oil to boost your blend. Voila! – You have a luxurious Resin Infusion Oil that your body will thank you for!
