Frankincense was brought to Jesus as it was known as a powerful cure. At the time, it was more valuable than gold in the Ancient World. It was used for healing many health complaints. Frankincense oil promotes healthy cell regeneration and keeps existing cells and tissues healthy. It was one of the oils that was used to embalm the dead in Egyptian times, as it is the perfect skin preserver.
