Frankincense Essential Oil, "liquid gold"

frankincense is by far one of my favorite oils and is known as "liquid gold."

it is said, "when in doubt, use frankincense!"

this oil has found its way into my heart primarily because of how much of an impact it has made with Kale's asthma. I layer it on top of doTERRA'S Breathe blend and Eucalyptus...

...not only is Frankincense great in and of itself for chronic inflammation and the promotion of deep breathing and lung expansion, but when layered on top of other oils, it can increase the properties and potency of those other oils.

a brief history: "Frankincense has been a part of religious ceremony and used for its medicinal properties for thousands of years.  One of the oldest medical documents known to man dating back to 1500 BC recorded the use of Frankincense oil by physicians and priests alike for the treatment of disease and illness. In the Holy Bible the reference to Frankincense brought by the three wise men to the baby Jesus attests to the value placed on this oil.  It was of great value then and even now, the difficulty in sourcing makes it one of the more expensive essential oils.  Gum resin from trees in Oman, India, Somalia and Yemen and other areas of North Africa yeild much of the worlds Frankincense. DōTerra Frankincense comes from the country of Oman, the family is Burseraceae, and the oil is steam distilled from the resin tears extracted from the tree."

some of the specific properties of Frankincense: 

wellness uses:
Calm and Stress Relief
Cold and Flu Season
Emergency Salve
Immune Strengthener
Skin Care

common health concerns that frankincense addresses:
Cuts and Wounds
Neurological Disorders
Skin Disorders
Sore Throat
Stomach Ache
Tumor reduction

if you are at all interested in essential oils, this is a great one to start using on a regular basis!

i am currently using it for my sweet madden, who split his chin open a few days ago...not only is it great for cuts and wounds, but i am hoping to minimize the lovely scar that will more than likely be left behind.
...although my husband assures me that madden will be more than proud of the scar just as it is. :)

i am more than happy to answer any and all questions about frankincense and essential oils in general.

much love friends!
