It’s another new month with another new essential oil highlight! And this month we’re bringing you one that you are not going to want to be without! So let’s chat about an essential oil called Frankincense!
Frankincense is arguably one of the most recognizable essential oils due to its wide range of supportive properties, as well as being one of the gifts given to baby Jesus.
Applied topically, it promotes the appearance of healthy looking skin while reducing the appearance of uneven skin tones. It is considered a holy oil in the Middle East, where it has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years. Frankincense is even mentioned in the Ebers Papyrus, an ancient Egyptian scroll from approximately 1500 BCE that documents its use. How cool is that?
Young Living distills Frankincense essential oil from the resin of Boswellia carterii trees located in northern Africa, near the Arabian Peninsula so you know you’re getting the best of the best when purchasing this oil.
I love using two drops on my face both morning and night and I swear you’d never know I was in my 4th decade. Maybe that’s just wishful thinking on my part, but I think it has a whole lot to do with the power of Frankincense.
So how should you use it? The possibilities truly are endless but I have a few tried and true uses for this oil that I think you’re going to love.
One of the best ways to get your hands on this highly coveted oil is by purchasing my favorite starter bundle that includes Frankincense along with 11 other top used essential oils + diffuser. You can snag your own bundle HERE!
