Some information about Frankincense

Frankincense is one of the sacred biblical plants. It is a shrub that grows on the dry and mountainous soils of the Middle East and North East Africa. The excision of its bark makes it possible to obtain an exudate, the gum resin which has been used for hundreds of years in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, for its anti-inflammatory, digestive and healing properties. Frankincense is also called Olibanum or Somalia tear in reference to these drops of exudates that spring from the sides of the shrub. Frankincense essential oil is produced by distillation of this gum resin. The smell that emerges is woody and delicately spicy. In aromatherapy or in the hospital, this essential oil is particularly appreciated for its spiritual and soothing dimension, but it is also increasingly used for its pain-relieving and healing properties.

Frankincense essential oil is mainly known to promote meditation: it is energizing and invigorating while being relaxing and antidepressant. It is also used on the skin for its healing, antifungal and regenerating properties. It is then ideal in case of fungal infections, acne or scars.

Usage tips

Essential oils are powerful natural substances and should therefore be used with care. Even if essential oils have been used since Antiquity, their mode of use and the precautions for use are often poorly known. Many books deal with essential oils. It is therefore advisable to refer to it to find out about the traditional modes of use.

As an indication, some examples of use (reserved for over 6s)

Use by broadcast


Frankincense essential oil can be used for diffusion. However, it remains reserved for children over 6 years old. For meditation, pour about 10 drops of Frankincense essential oil into your diffuser and diffuse for a maximum of 30 minutes.

These same proportions will also effectively clear the airways (rhinitis, bronchitis or asthma).


Inhalation use

To stimulate immunity : 3 drops on the wrists to breathe deeply, in prevention, once a day, during periods of risk.

Use in the bathSince essential oils are not soluble in water, they must be mixed with an emulsifier before pouring them into the bath. For example, they can be mixed with a liquid soap, a neutral shampoo (1 tablespoon) or our dispersant Solubol®. As a general rule, it is advisable not to exceed 10 drops per bath and not to stay longer than 20 minutes. To totally relax and evacuate the stress of the day, mix in 2 tablespoons (very full) of olive oil 5 drops of Frankincense essential oil with 5 drops of rosewood essential oil and 5 drops of true lavender essential oil. Place this synergy under the water jet of your bath just before entering the water.


Application by massage or compressIt is advisable to mix a few drops of essential oil with a vegetable oil (sweet almond, jojoba, macadamia, rosehip, argan, olive, etc.) to use it as a massage oil.

To soothe anxieties, 3 drops of Frankincense essential oil in 5 mL of vegetable oil. Apply in massage on the solar plexus twice a day.

In case of scar, mix 1 drop of Frankincense essential oil in 4 drops of vegetable oil in light massage on the scar, 3 times a day.

In case of skin mycosis, place 1 drop of frankincense essential oil and 1 drop of pure tea tree essential oil directly on the mycosis morning and evening for 5 days. Do not use near the eyes or on the mucous membranes.


Oral use

Frankincense essential oil increases the body's natural defenses and thus makes it less vulnerable to infections. To boost immunity, put 2 drops of Frankincense essential oil on a neutral tablet twice a day (caution reserved for over 6s).

100% pure and natural oil

Accéder au dossier

An essential oil is made up of chemically defined molecules (about 10,000 listed) that have been secreted by special plant cells. It can consist of from one to several hundred molecules, which helps explain why some essential oils have many properties but different therapeutic effectiveness. To guarantee the properties necessary for effective aromatherapy, it is important that an essential oil is 100% pure and natural (not cut, not deterpenated, not mixed with alcohol or vegetable oils) and preferably organic. This is the case for the essential oils we sell. They are sold in tinted bottles with a dropper cap.

Go to the "Properties and characteristics of essential oils" file. Whether pure or mixed, you can use them in our different diffuser models. The information given on each essential oil is for guidance only. Beware of self-diagnosis, do not hesitate to consult an aromatherapist or any other recognised professional and read our special file "properties of essential oils"in our thematic files.
