Ancient ritual usage and modern research confirm that frankincense has relaxing effects on the human body including uplifting mood and heightening awareness.  These antidepressant properties can be achieved through various diffusion techniques and topical application including various forms of massage.  This oil is also well suited to help with skin conditions.  It is a mild oil that in most instances can be applied directly, if necessary.  Help with acne to wrinkles, cuts and wounds to reducing scarring are all mentioned by those that have used this essential oil.  Most practical for skin application is to make a 1% to 2% dilution with a carrier oil or a similar dilution in an ointment.

It's kind of a pricey oil, but one of my favorites. I use it for mood management and skin problems, like the little cuts under my sons toes that won't heal and another child's eczema. Here's a link to my DoTerra  essential oils store.
