Frankincense Essential Oil

Posted by  ·  February 9, 2019  ·  Last Updated: February 9, 2019

As you can see, Frankincense oil has many uses and many healing properties.  It blends well with carrier oils and can be easily applied to skin for many benefits including blemish control, skin tightening, and to diminish the signs of aging (wrinkles!) I recommend that you also test a small patch of skin to check for any possible reactions and mix with a carrier oil to avoid any side effects such as redness or irritation.   Frankincense oil also mixes very well with other oils for diffusing.  You can blend it with any of the citrus oils for added energy on a particularly tiring day, or you can blend a few drops of frankincense oil with lavender for an excellent way to unwind and relax on a stressful day.  In general, Frankincense is a highly tolerated oil and has little to no side effects for most people. In fact, it is often more tolerated for skin issues than it’s medical counterparts such as steroid creams.  I think it’s versatility is part of what lends to it’s “king of oils” name and allowed it to survive so many years as such a practical and useful oil.

How do I buy Frankincense?

I buy all my oils from YoungLiving.  I love knowing they are safe and pure.  You can begin trying oils with their starter kit. I can’t say enough about how wonderful this kit is. You get a selection of 12 oils (full-sized bottles)  that are the basics, a few samples, and a diffuser. We are always diffusing at our home.  It creates such a wonderful mood,  promotes wellbeing and helps to bring peace to our home. Learn more here: YoungLiving Oils.

 

Thes opinions are my own.  I am sharing how I use essential oils in my daily life. I am not claiming to diagnose treat cure or prevent any disease.

    Awesome article! I also only use Young Living oils and they have changed our life. No chemicals used in house cleaning, breaking away from prescription antibiotics, diffusing wonderful scents. Love, love, love these oils.

    I love Frankincense! I just love to smell it. I have a bead bracelet a friend ordered for me that you can drop the oils on the beads. I sometimes sleep with it on if my arthritis is really bad. I put lavender, frankincense, and peppermint on it.
    Lavender is so good for burns! I've stuck my hands on hot skillets and rub some lavender on it - the burning goes away!
    Thieves is wonderful for colds and allergies.

      Shirley, Lavender is one of my faves too. We diffuse it all of the time. I just ordered Lavender lip balm after reading a great facebook post about unusual uses for Young Living products. They all raved about how they use the lavender lip balm for everything.
