muscle pain and for the treatment of inflammation

I have found Frankincense essential oil to be very helpful with muscle pain and for the treatment of inflammation, great for migraines especially due to inflammation of the neck and shoulder muscles. I find the scent to be very pleasing and tolerable. This is a very calming oil for our daughter.

We use it in combination of other essential oils to alleviate muscle stiffness in our daughter with Cerebral Palsy.
