Frankincense – Boswellia Carteri: This prized essential oil is derived from the aromatic resin of the Boswellia tree genus. Since ancient times, frankincense has been praised for its many medicinal effects and has been used for a variety of topical and internal uses. This oil is high in certain antioxidants and active ingredients such as sesquiterpenes, monoterpenes, and ketones. While used traditionally for skin conditions and its psychological effects, frankincense’s ability to counter free radicals and prevent cellular mutation has made it a subject for further study. Its active ingredient is boswellic acid, which has anti-inflammatory properties that may lower the risk of oxidative stress and chronic disease.
