Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress Frankincense Pure Essential Oil
Famously, frankincense was one of the gifts bestowed on Baby Jesus by the Three Kings.
Slightly less famously, it's an absolutely fantastic oil which acts as a respiratory tonic, uplifts the spirits and is highly 'protective' – a few drops will chase away negativity (indeed beyond that, it was once believed to guard against evil spirits).
Certainly, we love to apply a few drops of this to our chests at this time of year – it is one of the few essential oils which can be applied directly to the skin, NB. (A few drops can also of course be placed on a diffuser, or breathed via a tissue. For more uses, scroll down.)
And our go-to frankincense oil – from Aromatherapy Associates – is, cheeringly, now 100% ethically-sourced. Aromatherapy Associates is working with a charity by the name of Boswellness, which has direct links to farmers and ensures that money is invested back into the communities who gather the frankincense.
Meaning one of our go-to feel-good oils – truly, a winter essential – now has an even bigger feel-good factor.
