Frankincense Essential Oil- Healer, Spirit Lifter, and Beautifier
Frankincense essential oil, yes the very same oil that was given to Jesus by the wise men when he was born, has many healing and spiritual properties. This oil is found in many of Young Living’s oil blends because of its amazing properties. In the Middle East, Frankincense Essential Oil is still considered the holy anointing oil. The oil is extracted using steam distillation from the resin of the Boswellia certerii tree. For thousands of years Frankincense has been used in religious ceremonies, churches, and prayer circles. Frankincense was more valuable than gold in ancient times. In ancient Egypt it was used in prescriptions and remedies and we have documentation of this in some of the world’s oldest documented medical records known to man.

Leviticus 2:1-2 “And when any will offer a meat offering unto the Lord, his offering shall be of fine flour; and he shall pour oil upon it, and put frankincense thereon: and he shall bring it to Aaron’s sons the priests: and he shall take thereout his handful of the flour thereof, and of the oil thereof, with all the frankincense thereof; and the priest shall burn the memorial of it upon the altar, to be an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the Lord:”
