Frankincense essential oil is also used to alleviate stress and relieve pain.
When used as an ingredient in skin care products, frankincense essential oil is said to treat dry skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, scars, and stretch marks.
The Benefits of Frankincense Oil Can It Help
While preliminary research suggests that frankincense essential oil may offer certain health benefits, there is currently a lack of research testing the health effects of frankincense oil.
For instance, laboratory research on human cells indicates that frankincense essential oil may possess immune-stimulating and cancer-fighting properties that could aid in the protection against breast cancer and pancreatic cancer. However, it’s important to note that these studies were conducted in a lab (and not in people) and didn’t test the aroma therapeutic use of frankincense oil. More research is needed.
A combination of essential oils including frankincense oil may help sleep in people with cancer, according to a study published in Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice in 2016. For the study, people with cancer were given personal inhaler devices containing essential oils.
Of those who used the device, 64 percent had an improvement of at least one point on the sleep scale. The essential oil blend that included frankincense (Boswellia carterii) also had mandarin (Citrus reticulata) and lavender (Lavandula angustifolia).
Possible Side Effects
Research is needed to assess the potential benefits and risks. Ingesting frankincense essential oil may have toxic effects and isn’t recommended.
In addition, some individuals may experience irritation or an allergic reaction when applying frankincense essential oil to the skin. A skin patch test should be done before using any new essential oil. Additionally, essential oils shouldn’t be applied to skin undiluted.
Pregnant or nursing women and children should consult their health care providers before using essential oils.
It’s also important to note that self-treating a condition with frankincense essential oil and avoiding or delaying standard care may have serious consequences.

Frankincense essential oil is widely available for purchase online and is sold in many natural-foods stores and in stores specializing in self-care products.
How to Use Frankincense Oil
Frankincense shouldn’t be ingested. When a drop or two is combined with a carrier oil (such as jojoba, sweet almond, or avocado oil), frankincense essential oil can be applied to the skin or added to baths in small amounts.
Frankincense essential oil can also be inhaled after sprinkling a drop or two of the oil onto a cloth or tissue, or by using an aromatherapy diffuser or vaporizer.
In aromatherapy, several other essential oils are often used in combination with frankincense. For example, lavender essential oil may help alleviate anxiety and relieve insomnia, while rose essential oil may ease menstrual cramps and reduce stress. In addition, both orange essential oil and lemon essential oil may help enhance mood.
