This is one of my favorites! We all should remember this from the Bible. It was one of the gifts the wise men gave to baby Jesus, along with Myrrh and gold. Frankincense was valued more than gold during ancient times, and only those with great wealth and abundance possessed it. It is considered a holy anointing oil in the Middle East, and has been documented dating back to thousands and thousands of years ago.

Frankincense (Boswellia carterii) essential oil has an earthy, uplifting aroma that’s perfect for grounding and spiritual connectedness. Frankincense includes the naturally occurring constituent boswellic acid, and has a woodsy, warm, balsamic aroma.

Apart from its peaceful smell, I rub it on my face to reduce redness and brighten my complexion every day. Frankincense is amazing for skin and great for emotional health. Ancient documents show hundreds and hundreds of recipes where Frankincense was used to support wellness.

Frankincense Vitality has a complex, sweet, and woodsy flavor. Take Frankincense Vitality internally by adding it to water, or your daily shot of NingXia Red® for your overall health and well-being.
