An oil is “essential” in the sense that it contains the “essence of” the plant’s fragrance—the characteristic fragrance of the plant from which it is derived. Most of the essential Oils are used for Aromatherapy. Aromatherapy is the practice of using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being. The inhaled aroma from these “essential” oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function. Some aromatherapy oils are too concentrated to apply directly to the skin. In this case, the oil is combined with a ‘carrier’ oil or lotion to dilute its strength. Frankincense has a woody and vibrant aroma. One of the best ways to achieve all the benefits of Frankincense Essential Oil is to use it in an aroma diffuser. The fragrance is calming, relaxing, and combats negative emotions, and lifts the spirits while balancing mood.
