Frankincense Essential Oil - Immune Stimulant, Age Spots, Wounds, Wrinkles

Frankincense Essential Oil is considered a magical oil by many. It dates back to biblical days (Old Testament) and was said to be commonly used as a spice and an offering.

Not being particularly steeped in bible knowledge, today Frankincense is used in many ways, including as an immune stimulant and aid in protection against age spots and in healing wounds.

Several studies and websites cite the best use of Frankincense against age spots is to dilute it with a few drops of a carrier oil, such as jojoba, sweet almond, avocado, etc) and dab it on the age spot daily. Other Frankincense proponents say - as long as it's pure - it can be dabbed on neat (no carrier oil) to the age spot to reduce the coloration.

Personally, I use Frankincense neat on wounds and age spots. I dilute Frankincense in a carrier oil - I use 1 oz coconut oil and 2 drops Frankincense, 2 drops Lemon and 2 drops Lavender essential oils - for wrinkles - applied at night. Lemon is photo-toxic, so should not be applied to skin when going out into the sun - 12 hour delay or more suggested..
