Botanical name:Â Boswellia carterii
Apart from being a well-known cicatrisant (has skin healing properties) and having anti-inflammatory properties, frankincense is also said to be helpfulÂ as an expectorant, helping your respiratory systemÂ rid itself of excess mucus when you have a cold.
- To help your lungs clear excess phlegm when you have a cold, add 1 drop of frankincense essential oil into a bowl of hot water and breathe in the vapour. Cover your head and the bowl with a towel so thatÂ you can breathe in most of the steam - the moist air really helps relieve any nasal congestion that comes along with having a cold. When you find that the scent of frankincense has faded, add another drop into the hot water and continue breathing the vapours for about 10 minutes. Repeat this 3 times daily until the symptoms clear.
You can do this with children as well, but for infants you can do a milder inhalation session for them by adding 2-3 drops of the oil on the edge of their mattress (where they aren't likely to touch or have direct contact with) when they go down for their naps.
How to use
How to use
Use in an appropriate essential oil diffuser. Depending on the oil, it may damage some kinds of plastics, so we generally prefer using clay diffusers with tea lights.
Certain essential oils are also lovely as room sprays, insect repellents and linen fresheners.
Some essential oils are toxic to pets. Please read up about them as much as you can before using it around your furbabies.
We do not advocate the ingestion of any essential oils, unless under the direction of a doctor or certified clinical aromatherapist.
Be sure to dilute essential oils if you are looking to apply them to the skin, as most essential oils can irritate the skin when used at full strength.
