Benefits of Frankincense Essential Oil

Frankincense, also known as olibanum, is made from the resin of the
Boswellia tree. This tree typically grows in the dry, mountainous regions of
India, Africa, and the Middle East.
Frankincense has a woody, spicy smell and can be inhaled, absorbed through
the skin, or taken as a supplement.
Used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine, frankincense appears to offer certain
health benefits, from improved arthritis and digestion to reduced asthma and
better oral health. It may even help fight certain types of cancer.

placebo at reducing osteoarthritis pain and improving mobility (7).

research is needed.
In a subsequent study, participants took 169.33 mg of Boswellia extract twice
daily for 120 days. Results indicated that the supplement reduced
inflammation, joint pain, and stiffness in mild to moderate knee osteoarthritis,
without serious side effects (8Trusted Source).
Another study found that oliban oil, another name for frankincense, reduced
