Frankincense, known as "The King" of essential oils, has been used for thousands of years for sacred practices, salves, religious ceremonies and perfumes. We're probably all familiar with the stories of Frankincense being one of the gifts given to Jesus Christ after his birth.

This incredible EO is highly admired for its ability to rejuvenate skin when applied topically; to promote cellular health and immunity and produce a healthy inflammatory response when taken internally; and to induce relaxation and peace when used aromatically. Seriously, is there anything frankincense isn't good for?

Frankincense is the oil of truth, inviting us to let go of negativity, lower vibrations, lies and deception and helps us to create new perspectives based on light and truth. It connects our soul to our inner light.

I personally love using frankincense for EVERYTHING! When the diffuser is on, a drop of frankie is in there. Have anything skin related happening, on frankie goes (either mixed in with my all natural moisturiser or added to some coconut oil). Felling out of alignment or wanting to deepen my connection within, a drop on my thumb, taken to the soft palette on the roof of my mouth.

How can you use frankincense EO for Your Intention?

  • get it in your diffuser! Either add one drop to whatever blend you're diffusing, or make frankie the key scent, pairing with oils like wild orange, lime, lavender or sandalwood

  • DIY a relaxing and peaceful room spray by adding 15 drops in a spray bottle with distilled water, salt and pair with 15 drops grapefruit and 30 drops douglas fir

  • take internally by adding one to two drops in a Veggie capsule

  • hydrate and rejuvenate dry skin by adding a few drops to your mouisturiser

  • apply to the bottom of your feet to promote relaxation

  • DIY your own clay facial mask by combing bentonite clay, cider vinegar and frankie

The possibilities are pretty much endless with this oil which makes it a must have EO in your life!
