Frankincense was offered up in biblical times with gifts of gold. To be offered up with such a high end gift, this stuff must be great right? I mean its worth a shot!
Getting older, if you don’t take care of your skin, it starts to deteriorate and finally this year I have decided to use better products. My husband and I have been using Frankincense to promote healthier skin for ourselves. He has been noticing some skin spots that need some extra love so we have been applying it topically without any carrier oil or lotion. So far we have loved the way it makes our skin feel and look. We all miss that youthful skin of our childhood years, but there are still options for us to take care of what we’ve got now.
This is our little one Ann, and I just wish I could have that youthful looking skin again. Since I can’t go back in time, I can start taking care of my skin now.
Today you will see frankincense used in various ways.
-Add drops to a diffuser in your home or office, up to 1hr 3 times a day, to create a more focused and uplifting surrounding.
-Apply “neat”, 2-4 drops, directly onto skin or mix with facial creams or pure oils such as coconut, jojoba, or argon oil and massage into skin.
-Diffuse during times or prayer or meditation for a sense of grounding or purpose.
Some fun facts:
-Frankincense essential oil is considered a holy oil in the Middle East, where it has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years and was one of the gifts given to Christ at his birth.
-Frankincense is mentioned in one of the oldestknown scientific records, the Ebers Papyrus, dating from the 16th century B.C.
-Young Living distills its Frankincense oil from the resin of Boswellia carterii trees located in northern Africa near the Arabian Peninsula.
Still loving all my essential oils, learning how to use them in various ways, and seeing the results. Even just being able to diffuse them into my home is amazing! Half the time it smells like a spa in here and I love it!
