Distilled from the boswellia tree, it has been used for thousands of years. While the resin from the tree possesses many different properties, it is most highly regarded for the oil it contains, often referred to as the king of oils, it’s highly revered for everything from digestion to beauty.

    The questions people who are new to essential oils ask are: How do I use it? Can I take it internally or is it only to be used topically?
    This should be said at the beginning of the video as a hook to keep the person watching!
    Far too many videos on essential oils are long winded and short on content!
