Essential Oil Spotlight – Frankincense

When I hear the word Frankincense, I immediately think of a heady, thick incense and am reminded of my younger years attending church and Catholic school.  It is a childhood feel good reminder if you will, bringing me a sense of peace and calm, taking me back to God’s house where I am safe and loved.

So when I was first introduced to the essential oil Frankincense, I was eager and excited to experience the aroma – would it take me back to that calm and safe time in my life?

Oh my.  Yes, it certainly did!!

The aroma of Frankincense made me so happy, just the scent! Happy, calm, loved and peaceful.  Who knew that you could feel all of that with just one whiff!

So I was hooked.  And as I started my essential wellness journey a year ago, this precious oil became the one I loved the most.  I was only about to begin to learn how amazing and powerful this oil truly is.

We all know the story of the Three Wise Men – bringing our Lord gold, frankincense and myrrh.  These gifts were not just an offering of thanks, but a true blessing and quite an extravagant gift in those days.  Frankincense is a holy oil to our Middle Eastern friends and was used in ancient times during sacrificial ceremonies to help improve communication with the Creator.  Some of the oldest documents known to man, dating back to 1500 BC, show the use of Frankincense by both physicians and priests.

The Burseraceae Tree

This powerful essential oil is carefully harvested from the plants and trees that grow in their native countries.  Frankincense is steam distilled from the resin of the Burseraceae family of resinous trees and shrubs.  These trees grow in Oman.  Frankincense oil is obtained through the painstaking process of distilling the oil from the resin and gum of these trees.

Some of the many uses of Frankincense include helping to build and maintain a healthy immune system, promotes cellular health, reduces the appearance of blemishes and rejuvenates skin (its a key ingredient in the Anti-Aging Blend), supports healthy immune system function, promotes feelings of peace, relaxation, satisfaction, and overall wellness.

Frankincense contains sesquiterpenes, which enables it to pass through the blood-brain barrier for more effective results.  It also maintains leukocyte activity to help the body systems function optimally.

I have just touched on a few of the  incredible properties of this holy oil.  I use Frankincense daily, I cannot be without it! I diffuse it whenever I know I may have a restless sleep or when I need that extra aura of calm and peace.  Without fail, it soothes me.

Smelling is believing!!  You must experience this oil!!!  Contact me to get a sample – it will change everything for you!
