One of the things that people that are into essential oils will tell you is “When in doubt but Frankincense on it.” Well that’s great and all but…why? Well hopefully I can help you understand the why behind it.
Frankincense oil has been around for thousands of years, there is a reason that it was a gift to baby Jesus because this stuff is almost miraculous (except its actually science) It is revered for its ability to beautify and rejuvenate skin when applied topically. It is used in a lot of beauty products.
Frankincense is also used to promote cellular health and immunity by helping your body to produce a healthy inflammatory response when taken internally.
I could go deep into the science of why Frankincense works but I don’t have to, if you want to read all the science-y goodness of how it contains a complex mixture of monoterpenes such as alpha-pinene, Limonene, alpha-Thujene, and beta-Pinene. then visit the doTERRA Science Blog. This blog can explain it a lot better than I can.
What I can do is share with you a few different ways I use Frank daily.
My beauty routine wouldn’t happen with out my buddy Frankie. It is in my Essential Skin Care line and I add a little extra because well…wrinkles LOL. I always thought that I would just allow myself to go grey and grow old gracefully. That was until I started aging outwardly but inwardly I still feel like I’m in my 20’s. So, I will do all I can to naturally fight all that outward signs of aging.
Frank and I work on my cellular health because if your cells aren’t healthy well you aren’t healthy. I take my Life Long Vitality Vitamins daily to help feed my body on a cellular level. (These vitamins deserve a whole blog post so I will work on that)
Another thing that Frank helps me with is my big Toe. I have a toe that I have broken so many times that I have been told that I have something that starts with “A” happening in that Toe…but I am not old enough for that to be happening…just sayin.
But If I were to have that “A” thing then my daily drop of Frankincense on my toe is perfect. It helps my body to produce a healthy inflammatory response. So if you know people that are old enough…who am I kidding… everyone can benefit from using frankincense to support the body when occasional inflammation happens…even if that occasion is daily.
Well hopefully I’ve helped you see that you and Frank can be best friends but if you need more convincing or information please check out this doTERRA blog post https://www.doterra.com/US/en/blog/spotlight-frankincense-oil
