Frankincense is used in traditional medicine to treat a wide variety of medical conditions. This resin may benefit asthma and arthritis, as well as gut and oral health. It may even have cancer-fighting properties.
Frankincense is a mild oil and most people can apply it directly to skin, or neat, without any issues. However, if you experience any burning, tingling, or irritation, dilute the oil by rubbing a carrier oil, such as fractionated coconut oil, jojoba oil, or grapeseed oil, over the irritated area.
