Wise men know… Frankincense

I was really excited when I reached in the box this week and pulled out Frankincense.  This is an Essential Oil I have really grown to love.  It is the POWER HOUSE of essential oils and was one of the first documented forms of ancient medicine.   It is renowned as one of the most prized and precious essential oils with extraordinary health benefits.

Frankincense is sourced from the resin of the Boswellia Tree from Somalia. It grows in soil that is very dry and in desolate conditions.   The word Frankincense comes from the word “franc encens” which means quality incense in old French.

You may have heard of the reference to Frankincense in many different religions as well as it being one of the gifts given to Jesus by the wise men.

Frankincense has a warm, spicy, and clean aroma. It can be used aromatically, topical, and internally.  It can be diluted for sensitive skin.

The primary benefits of Frankincense are:eFrankincense-botanical-2x

*Support healthy cellular function

*Promotes feelings of relaxation

*Reduces the appearance of skin imperfections

Personally I take a drop of Frankincense every day under my tongue for the health benefits but here are a few other uses for it.

*Rub Frankincense on your hands after a long day of gardening for a warming and soothing effect.

*Use in your moisturizer or toner.

*Can be applied to the bottom of your feet to promote feelings of relaxation and to balance mood.

*Take one to two drops in a veggie capsule to support healthy cellular function.

*Add it to a bath to soak away the stress of the day.

*Use as a natural household cleaner and use it to help purify the air.

*Add it to your toothpaste to support healthy oral health.

*add a drop or two into some water to help aid in digestion.

*Helps support a healthy immune system.

There are tons of uses for this essential oil just as there are for the others I have researched.  Frankincense is an amazing essential oil. It is one of the oils that cost a little more but thankfully the company I am partnered with helps us out with this one.  With a retail value of $93 for a 15ml and wholesale price of $69.75, I was very excited to get a bottle for FREE in December with my Loyalty Rewards Program order.  If you are interested in getting your Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils 25% off retail and earning FREE products use the contact me form at the top and I would love to tell you how that works.

I hope you’ve enjoyed learning about Frankincense today. Until tomorrow…
