Frankincense

Frankincense

Sharing my love of Frankincense Essential Oil – most recently with the birth of my baby, how I use it in my daily routine and lastly our Essential Sisters favourite ways to use Frankincense.

Our Birth

One moment of her birth powerfully etched in my mind is anointing her sweet little crown moments after she was born with Frankincense. Quietly on my own, I did hers. And then I did mine.

A beautiful moment together while we were still connected by our umbilical cord.

To usher her into the physical realm, Frankincense felt like a warm, grounding hug. For me, I always feel a holy sacredness when I use it. It felt perfect after birthing her – both for her arrival and my expansion.

I’ve continued to use Frank on my own crown daily post birth to support the transformation from in the womb to in my arms – 3 drops on my crown. And I’ve added a few drops to her diaper oil with Lavender for a soothing balm. And a little dab on her fresh new toosh to clear up any redness.

During the 9 months she was in my belly I lathered Frankincense on my belly with coconut oil every night, followed by a heart-shaped roll-on of Rose Essential Oil.

why frankincense

If you were only going to have one Oil I would make it Frankincense!

Our doTERRA Frankincense comes from the Somali region, and it’s a resin from the bark which is distilled. Watch this to experience the beauty behind every Frankincense bottle.

Physically it supports cellular health, and five specific systems of the body.

Emotionally it is the Oil of Truth, helping to dispel any negative low-vibe energy. It’s a powerful connector to the Father energy.

My other fave uses of frankie

In my bedtime diffuser I love Frankincense with Lavender and Wild Orange, 2 drops each. I know guys, if you follow me, I put Lavender in my diffuser now!

For an immunity boost and stress reducer for everyone in the fam we have a Sunday night Family Oil ritual. Frank is the first oil of four in “The Basic Protocol” of oils dropped rain drop style on the spine by @symphonyofthecells.

One drop of Frank goes in my nighttime face oil. I do Blue Tansy in the AM, Frank in the PM. And I slather my décolleté in Frank and coconut oil.

When in doubt, just use Frank.
