The benefits of frankincense oil can be obtained by topical application, inhalation via a diffuser or vaporizer, or by ingesting it in small amounts. For pain relief, massage the oil into the affected area. Using a diffuser, vaporizer, or inhaler works for the treatment of colds, coughs, and other respiratory conditions and blockages. Frankincense can be applied directly to the skin in most cases, or can be blended with carrier oils such as jojoba, coconut, or almond oils. Most packaging and labelling will describe whether or not that particular blend of oil will require dilution.

This condition can occur at any age, but it is most common among the elderly.   There are two types of insomnia: primary insomnia, and secondary insomnia. Primary insomnia occurs when the individual is having sleep difficulties that are not related to any medical conditions.
