Frankincense is one of the most sought-after oils due to its soothing aroma and potential anti-inflammatory properties when used topically and aromatically*. Similar to the way aspirin works, frankincense oil is thought to block the formation of prostaglandins, the normal biological response to inflammation (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20696559/). Absolute Aromas Frankincense Essential Oil is extracted from the resin through a steam dilution process.
