We selected this version of Frankincense specifically for our HEALING SALVE, to provide the most benefit to damaged and irritated skin.  Some of the benefits of this essential oil for skin are attributed to the a-pinene:

Alpha-pinene (a-pinene), a chemical compound found in Boswellia frereana essential oil, has potential benefits for skin healing. Alpha-pinene is known for its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, which can support the healing process of various skin conditions.

The anti-inflammatory properties of alpha-pinene may help reduce redness, swelling, and irritation in the skin. This can be beneficial for soothing inflammatory skin conditions like acne, eczema, and dermatitis. Additionally, its antimicrobial properties can assist in preventing or addressing bacterial or fungal infections that may hinder the healing process.
