Hello. Thank you for your message.

Frankincense (oil) comes from the resin of Boswellia serrata trees. Some aromatherapy oils, perfumes and certain types of incense contain this oil.  Though rare, some people might experience irritation and/or an allergic reaction to frankincense oil.  This might be the case for you.   A doctor, preferably a dermatologist can tell you more.  Signs may include a rash,  hives, itchy or swollen skin.
