We all know the story of the birth of baby Jesus and the three wise men bearing gifts. One of the gifts was frankincense a precious oil from the fragrant resin of the tree, so widespread at the time that it grew in the lands of the Bible and beyond.
Boswellia sacra is the primary tree in the genus Boswellia. It is native to the Arabian Peninsula, and horn of Africa. The tree is cut and resin flows. It dries into a hard scab like substance. It is harvested and most often, sold raw, in what looks like golden nuggets or crystals. Other times it is made into oil or incense. Exported in tonnage, due to its popularity, frankincense is over exploited bringing it close to the brink of collapse. Experts are saying this genus could be extinct in less than 20 years.
The Frankincense Tree Called the Boswellia Sacra
To smell frankincense is to be transported in times to ancient Egypt where the Pharaohs were embalmed in its sweet fragrant aroma and Cleopatra and her entourage would crush its ashes into eye-liner. Every religion embraced frankincense and this is why we think of it as a “spiritual oil” used in ceremony. But the clergy wasn’t the only fan of these golden nuggets, the Beauty Industry took interest, and you can now find it in everything from your Chanel Number 5 to your favorite health food store aromatherapy department.
Resin from the Cut Boswellia Sacra
It’s never fun to be a part of a drama that requires all its actors to be good and not bad. One must restrain themselves from telling others what to do, but in the case of frankincense demanding sustainable, socially conscious products sourced with care is not asking too much.
After all, creating sacred ceremony requires divine scents. Adding frankincense to your spiritual practice of self-care, if done responsibly will provide more then mood boosting benefits.

WHAT CHAKRAS IS FRANKINCENSE ESSENTIAL OIL USED FOR?
Chakras are the energy points of your body that regulate all of your body's functions. Chakras affect everything from keeping your emotions in balance, to proper organ function, to keeping your immune system thriving. There are 7 main chakras to your body that are spread out from the base of your spine to the crown of your head.
Here we’ll be focusing on the chakras that frankincense essential oils help heal, balance, and ground.
Balance Your Solar Plexus With Frankincense Essential Oil
Your solar plexus chakra supports your gut. When it’s unbalanced, you’ll feel overwhelmed, out of energy and hyper-vigilant. Frankincense unifies the body and the spirit. When we release our worry and anxiety, we can heal ourselves from overthinking and mental exhaustion.
When the gut and the third eye work together in harmony, we tap into our “source” unifying our “doing” energy with our “being energy”. This lifts our spiritual practice to a new level, allowing us to be in pure flow.
When you use frankincense essential oil for your chakras, you’ll end up feeling wise and tapped into your subconscious.

Open your Third Eye Chakra With Frankincense Essential Oil
Your third eye chakra wants to be open. After all, when it is open, we are able to see clearly, and that is why we call it the "sixth sense"! When it's not, you can ask yourself, what is it you don’t want to know. The pineal gland, commonly dubbed the “third eye”, is located deep in the center of the brain. It is suggested that it serves as a metaphysical connection between the physical and spiritual worlds.
Frankincense essential oil encourages freedom of expression and clarity. When our third eye is open, we can begin to trust ourselves and rely on intuition over our cognitive abilities. An open third eye can lead to an increase in perceptive, intuitive, and spiritual abilities. Frankincense reflects violet rays, thought to be the most healing of the light frequencies.

Considered to be the highest vibrational center in the subtle body it is associated with the ideal of the "Spiritual quest". The more the crown is open, the more you evolve as a conscious being. The element of the crown is "thought".

HOW DO YOU SAFELY USE FRANKINCENSE ESSENTIAL OIL?
We can't stress enough at Adoratherapy how important it is that you use our essential oils correctly and safely. So here are some tips for safely using frankincense essential oil:
Safe Essential Oil Skin Application
You should never apply essential oil to your skin in full strength. That’s why when using frankincense essential oil, you should always use it combined with a carrier oil such as jojoba oil, avocado oil, or coconut oil.
Use Frankincense Oil Safely With a Carrier Oil
Carrier oils work by diluting the strength of essential oils, this creates a mixture that’s moisturizing and less likely to cause skin reactions. To be safe after you’ve mixed the essential oil with a carrier oil, test a patch of your skin with your frankincense essential oil to make sure you're not sensitive to topical application.
The perfect time to enjoy the benefits of this chakra-balancing oil is when:
- You’re in deep meditation
- You want a more meaningful yoga experience
- You need a natural cognitive boost
But this oil smells so good you may want to enjoy it all the time.
Enhance Your Meditation With Clarity Chakra Spice

Focus on stimulating your third eye, by staring at the back of your forehead while your eyes are closed. This awakens the pineal gland and moves you into a deeper state of relaxation.
Enhance your Meditation with Clarity Chakra Boost Oil
Use as a Natural Perfume
Another way to bask in the mood-boosting benefits of frankincense essential oil is by wearing it as a natural perfume. At Adoratherapy, we created our Clarity Chakra Boost perfume to give you the option of wearing this soulful and healing scent.
