History of Frankincense

From the time of the Magi... to your diffuser, essential oils have captivated our senses. One of the oldest and most versatile oils is Frankincense, a resin oil from the Middle East.

Once popularly used around the world and thought to be one of the Middle East and Asia’s largest commodity, frankincense has continued to stay well-loved in today’s culture.

Many people have used frankincense for personal, religious, and medicinal uses. Egyptian women used the resin in their eyeshadows.

Frequently, the resin was incorporated into religious ceremonies and burials.
Frankincense is often burned symbolizing prayer.

Types of Frankincense Essential Oil for Bathing

There are several types of frankincense essential oil, here are the four most common ones:

  • Frankincense carterii (most popular)
  • Frankincense frereana
  • Frankincense serrata (usually lowest cost)
  • Frankincense sacra aka Sacred Frankincense

While each type has slightly varying aromas, you can use the frankincense oil of your choice for an aromatherapy bath. Frankincense is a non-toxic, non-irritant, and non-sensitizing essential oil so it is safe for skin.
