WHAT IS IT?
Frankincense was valued more than gold during ancient times, and only those with great wealth and abundance possessed it.
It is considered a holy anointing oil in the Middle East, and has been documented dating back to thousands and thousands of years ago.
Frankincense was also one of the gifts the wise men gave to the Christ child when he was a baby... according to the Holy Bible. Knowing that fact in itself underlines the value of this oil. How amazing that Young Living has given us access to such a historic and revered oil!
But outside of its reputation for being an oil for the wealthy, Frankincense is also very delicate to extract, and the process takes almost half a lifetime for most people. Young Living has their own Frankincense and Myrrh tree farm in Oman in the Middle East - but a Frankincense tree cannot even be tapped into to extract the essential oil until the tree is 40 years old and dead. Only then can Young Living employees harvest and extract the essential oil, distill it, and put it into a bottle for all of us to use. Amazing.
WHAT'S IT GOOD FOR?
Frankincense was so highly regarded in ancient times because of the massive amounts of benefits it has for the human body, and for the fact that people used it for literally EVERYTHING back then.
Because it is so powerful, so hard to extract, and the answer to any question regarding wellness, even being in possession of an oil like this was considered an honor. Ancient documents show hundreds and hundreds of recipes where Frankincense was used to support wellness, but here is just a short list that you can examine for yourself:
-Calming and relaxing
-Supports emotional wellbeing
-Great to massage into the skin after strenuous activity
-May help smooth the appearance of healthy or aging skin
-Supports healthy skin coloration
-Promotes clear skin
-Supports healthy breathing
-Promotes healthy and proper cellular function
-Supports restful sleep
-Supports immune health
-Supports overall health and wellness...and
the list goes on and on!HOW DO I USE IT?
You can experience this oil topically, inhale it from the bottle, from your hands, diffuse it, also under your tongue, in your water, or in a capsule.
Again - it's not difficult to figure out where to apply Frankincense or how many drops - just apply it where you need it.
Applying Young Living essential oils on your vitaflex points on the bottoms of your feet, even your hands and ears, is also a great idea.
These points are connected to major parts of our bodies, and the oil will support those areas as well. And once again - avoid putting directly in the eyes or ears!
We love Frankincense in our home for all things skin related, all things emotions related, and all things wellness related.
It is wonderful to diffuse during Bible reading and prayer. I use it on my face morning and evening.
We take Frankincense vitality in a capsule or use a drop or two under the tongue for emotional support.
You will quick discover the benefits!
If you're new to Frankincense, start by swiping a drop across your forehead and on your temples. Notice how you feel before and after - it is hard to put into words the power of this oil. Experience it for yourself!
