The Mood-boosting Spice


The healthy aroma of frankincense has infused houses of worship for centuries and it is no surprise when researchers found out that the scent can actually raise your spirits. A compound called incensole acetate, found in frankincense resin stimulates production of protein which elevates mood by affecting the areas of the brain that respond to anxiety and depression drugs. When you inhale the smoke of the burning resin, mood-elevating results are immediate.

Try one of these when you've got the blues: light a frankincense-infused candle, add 10 drops of essential oil to a bath, or dab a few drops (diluted with carrier oil) onto your wrist.
