Frankincense oil was one of the gifts brought to Jesus by the wise men. Whether or not it was this Frankincense or a specific type called Sacred Frankincense, it is not known. But either way, Frankincense Essential Oil is a powerful oil that has so many practical uses.
Making Frankincense Essential Oil
Young Living Frankincense Essential Oil is comes from the Boswellia carterii in Northern Africa, specifically Somalia. Steam distilled from the resin, Frankincense is mentioned in both ancient historical and Biblical documents. It was considered a holy oil by many cultures, as well as an oil fit for kings. It has a calming, earthy scent that works wonderfully in so many situations.
Using Frankincense Essential Oil
Frankincense is a wonderful oil to diffuse. I especially love to combine it in my fall diffuser blends. It is emotionally grounding and relaxing. It smells woodsy and earthy so it blends well with so many different types of oils for diffusing – Northern Lights Black Spruce, Pine, Cedarwood, Lavender, Peppermint, Orange, Bergamot, and more.
Frankincense is beneficial for skin, as well. I use Frankincense and Myrrh in my basic salve recipe. This is a must for me during the cold Alaska winter months when my skin is drying out.
For emotional grounding support, mixing Frankincense with other emotional support blends is a valuable asset. I especially love combine Frankincense with Valor or Joy for a pick me up on a hard day.
If you are looking for immune support and wellness, a drop of Frankincense Vitality oil in your beverages, a capsule, or dropped under your tongue is fantastic. The Vitality blends are labeled for internal ingestion according to FDA regulations.
