Spiritual-Frankincense is widely used externally as an essential oil. It is a lymphatic with immune stimulating properties, and is anti-inflammatory. I have found it to be quite useful for piles when combined with cypress and yarrow essential oils in a base of comfrey-infused oil. Frankincense is specifically used in preparations for skin inflammation, dry, mature or aging skin. It combines well with rose and vetiver in facial masks, sprays or lotions. The oil is a powerful stimulant that lifts depressed energy. Its antiseptic and expectorant qualities make it effective for colds, flu, and respiratory infections.
