History: Frankincense essential oil has very ancient roots in antiquity. Inscriptions about it have been found in ancient tombs. Ancient Egyptians used it in rejuvenation face masks as well as a vast variety of remedies. The charred resin from frankincense incense created the distinctive black eyeliner seen in Egyptian art.
Frankincense has been used for centuries throughout the Middle East, where it is considered a holy anointing oil. It has been used in religious ceremonies and for meditation for thousands of years and was very valued by many faiths. During the time of Christ, frankincense was well known for its anointing and healing powers.
The bible records that it was one of the gifts given to Christ at His birth. It is mentioned by name in the Bible 22 times, and refered to 52 times. In fact, the Hebrew/Greek word “frankincense” is translated as “incense” and refers to the same oil.
During ancient times, frankincense was valued more than gold, making it a substance only the wealthy could afford. It was used to “treat every conceivable ill known to man” from baldnes to impotence to skin care to ulcers and many more.
ORAC: Frankincense has an approximate ORAC of 6,125 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter.
