We all go through a time in our lives when we fall in love. It might be knew love, it might be old love, it might be rekindled love. Well, I have a NEW love and his name is Frank! (Don’t tell my hubby!) Franks real name is Frankincense and let me tell you his story.
Frankincense essential oil (Boswellia carterii) is considered a holy oil in the Middle East, where it has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years and was one of the gifts given to Christ at his birth. Frankincense is mentioned in the Ebers Papyrus, an ancient Egyptian scroll from approximately 1500 BCE, that documents its use. I just love the history of Frank, it truly warms my heart to know that that this oil was given to my Savior at his birth. Every time I diffuse Frank or use topically the sweet aroma grounds me to my God.
Frankincense is derived from the gummy sap that oozes out of the Boswellia trees, respectively, when their bark is cut. The leaking resin is allowed to harden and then scraped off the trunk in tear-shaped droplets; it may then be used in its dried form or steamed to yield essential oils. It is edible and often chewed like gum. It is also extremely fragrant, particularly when burned or diffused.
Frankincense essential oil has a broad range of uses, from enhancing spiritual and meditative practice to use in beauty routines. Frankincense has an earthy, uplifting aroma that’s perfect for grounding and spiritual connectedness. Create a safe and comforting environment by diffusing this oil’s empowering aroma, particularly when you are seeking purpose or engaged in prayer or meditation. In addition to elevated spiritual experiences, Frankincense can help you maintain the appearance of radiant skin. Its ability to smooth the appearance of healthy skin explains why it is used in many natural beauty products.
I use Frank everyday on my face and love the results. I use a synergy of Frank, Lavender and Copaiba essential oils in a roller ball with grape seed oil. (Recipe below) I also use Frank neat on my forehead each night. I apply one drop on my forehead and then gently rub it over my whole face. My skin has never felt or looked so good!! Also if feel a clogged pore coming on I put a dab of Frank on it and it keeps it from ever erupting! I Love Frank!
There are just so many great uses for Frank….. Invite elevated spiritual experiences every day by diffusing this oil in your home or office. Add Frankincense to your daytime lotion or night cream for a custom moisturizer that highlights your natural beauty. Incorporate Frankincense into your yoga ritual by diffusing this oil during your routine and following up with a post-practice massage. I also just love to use Frank as a personal scent! One drop Frank on my wrist with one drop Patchouli smells divine!
