Makes Perfect Frankincense to Me
Hear ye, hear ye! Make way for the king! He’s a hunka hunka burnin’ love. Uh thank you very much! Long live the king! Too many kings? NO SUCH THING… ugh was I yelling again?? My bad!
Sadly, I didn’t hear about frankincense until about 4 years ago. I’m not crying, you’re crying! I discovered frankincense during my anti-aging research. I wanted to know the best essential oils for skin firming, evening skin tone, and wrinkle prevention. Frankincense does all three! Hopefully this didn’t derail the effects of my anti-aging regimen. Better late than never, right? RIGHT??
More recently, I learned that frankincense is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory mediums in essential oils. I had a skin issue to deal with and hit the books! My thirst for a quick cure led me to creating a super duper awesome anti-inflammatory blend. Combined with tea tree, peppermint, and lavender, I made an “ointment” that rid me of my ailment lickety split! And yes…. I said lickety split. #dealwithit
As one of the most healing substances in the world, it deserves to be a top priority in your starter kit. In addition to its anti-inflammatory properties, it can be used as a painkiller and immune booster. To top all that amazingness off, there is currently positive research being done on frankincense and its potential to kill cancer cells! Whaaaaaaaaat???? Yeah you heard me… take that cancer!
Now don’t go chugging frankincense oil to cure all the things. Remember dilution is important as these are concentrated compounds. Also, always try things in small amounts topically AND internally by mixing with a carrier oil.
