Frankincense – Earthy and Ancient
This is the first post in a series highlighting the Everyday Oils Collection. The oils mentioned in each post can be purchased separately, together as a Collection, or in a Premium Starter Kit.
This is an oil that I am never without – you’ll notice I will say that about a lot of my oils. 😉
I wear it as perfume, to bring a sense of peace when I’m overworked, and I use it on my face and around my eyes. The scent is earthy and ancient. I don’t mean you’ll smell like grandma, but it has a lovely well aged aroma. It was a gift given to baby Jesus. It was highly valued then, and now.
Frankincense (Boswellia carterii) includes the naturally occurring constituent boswellic acid, and has a woodsy, warm, balsamic aroma. Diffuse Frankincense during meditation for grounding and purpose. Applying this oil topically may help smooth the appearance of healthy-looking skin, and is excellent to use for massage after activity.
Topical: Apply 2–4 drops directly to desired area. Dilution not required, except for the most sensitive skin. Use as needed.
Aromatic: Diffuse up to 1 hour 3 times daily.
If you would like to purchase your own Frankincense Essential Oil, the Everyday Oils Collection or a Premium Starter Kit, you can do so here.
If you have used Frankincense before, I’d love for you to share your own experience.
Until next time,
