Use During Childbirth

Frankincense essential oil can be beneficial during childbirth due to its calming and grounding properties. It can help reduce anxiety, fear, and stress, creating a more relaxed and positive birthing environment. It can help slow and deepen breathing, producing feelings of calm - making it ideal for fast labours, hyperventilation and anxiety.

Diffusing frankincense oil during labour can promote a sense of tranquility and focus, making the experience more manageable. Additionally, applying diluted frankincense oil to the skin may help with pain relief, muscle tension, and promoting a feeling of empowerment. Despite its potential benefits, it is crucial to consult with a healthcare provider before using frankincense essential oil during childbirth to ensure safety and suitability for individual circumstances.

Use After Childbirth

Postnatal Depression - Frankincense essential oil is often recommended for postnatal depression due to its calming and uplifting properties. Diffusing frankincense oil can help alleviate feelings of anxiety, sadness, and stress, promoting a more positive mood and emotional balance. The oil's grounding effects may also aid in reducing feelings of overwhelm and promoting relaxation. Aromatherapy with frankincense oil can serve as a complementary approach to managing postnatal depression symptoms, but it should not be used as a sole treatment. It is advisable to seek guidance from a healthcare provider or mental health professional for comprehensive support in addressing postnatal depression.

Breast Inflammation - Frankincense essential oil is known for its anti-inflammatory and soothing properties, making it a potential option for managing breast inflammation. Diluting frankincense oil with a carrier oil and applying it topically to the affected area may help reduce swelling, redness, and discomfort associated with conditions like mastitis or breast engorgement. The oil's anti-inflammatory effects can also support the healing process and promote relief from pain.

It is always important to consult with a healthcare provider before using frankincense essential oil for breast inflammation to ensure it is safe and appropriate for individual circumstances.


Use under the guidance of a health professional or qualified aromatherapist.
