Cruz Hemp Frankincense Oil

Boswellia serrata

Cruz Hemp 100% pure Frankincense oil can be used in many DIY home recipes from earth-based toothpaste, cold and flu relief topicals, wrinkle reducer serum, to a stress relief mist.

Origins

Frankincense has been traded on the Arabian Peninsula for more than 6,000 years. The coast of the Dhofar region of Oman is the hub of the Frankincense trade and was named the “Frankincense Coast”. Along this coastline, donkeys and camels brought bags of Frankincense resin to waiting for ships to transport to Mesopotamia, India, and China. Frankincense has a long history in Egypt for perfumery, incense, and medicine. Extracted from the genus Boswellia tree, these trees can grow in harsh and unforgiving climates. They have even been found growing out of solid rocks.

This ancient tree is carefully “bled” to produce high quantities of resin which are then treated and processed. The resins have a very pleasant earthy, woodsy, scent. For centuries, Frankincense has been used in incense, perfumes, and skincare. Cruz Hemp Frankincense essential oil is made by steam distillation of the Boswellia tree resins.

Properties

Modern research has found many medicinal benefits in Frankincense, as it has proven to positively impact asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, and digestive issues. Traditional ayurvedic medicine uses Frankincense to treat inflammatory disorders. The extracts from Boswellia trees are also used to improve lung function. The vapors of Frankincense soothe coughs and eliminate phlegm build up in the lungs and respiratory tract. Its antiseptic qualities are useful for oral health such as preventive measures against tooth decay and gum disease. Frankincense is used to prevent gas buildup and aids in digestion by speeding up the secretion of digestive juices that move the food through the stomach and the intestines.

When applied topically, Frankincense quickly fades the appearance of scars and acne. The aromatic resins promote relaxation and peace, bringing therapeutic value to natural perfumes and skincare.

Common Frankincense Oil Uses

Frankincense is in many products including our own Cruz Hemp Rejuvenate Skin Serum Roll-on. It utilizes Frankincense oil for its ability to stimulate the growth of new cells, promote tissue regeneration, and reduce the aging effect of the skin. Applied on the skin, it reduces the appearance of skin imperfections, such as discoloration. Its astringent properties clear up acne and neutralize oily skin. A protective skincare oil, Frankincense also defends the skin barrier against bacteria. Add a few drops to the Cruz Hemp Hemp Seed Lotion for a nice, earthy scented body lotion.
