“Frankincense – the King of the essential oils”
But in all seriousness, Frankincense is the number one oil I use daily because of its overarching value; from immune support, to inflammation, to emotional support.
Here are 10 of my favorite ways to use Frankincense:
- After a stressful day, rub 1 drop of Frankincense onto the back of your neck to ease stress and tension.
- For a peaceful night’s sleep, diffuse 2 drops of Frankincense with 2 drops of Lavender.
- To balance your emotions and keep you uplifted during the workday, diffuse 3 drops of Frankincense, 3 drops of Lemon, and 3 drops of Melaleuca (Tea Tree).
- Add 1-2 drops to your favorite night cream for an additional skin boost.
- Rub one drop between the palms of your hand and take a deep breath to promote calmness.
- Add 1 drop of Frankincense and 1 drop of Lavender to a warm bath to destress at night.
- Mix 2-3 drops of Frankincense with 1 tablespoon of a carrier oil (e.g. coconut oil, almond oil) and rub onto sore joints and muscles.
- Diffuse 2 drops of Frankincense, 2 drops of OnGuard, 2 drops of Lemon, and 2 drops of Oregano to create an immune boosting aroma. You can also add 8-10 drops of each to a 10mL roller bottle and a carrier oil for an immune boosting oil to rub onto the bottom of your feet at night.
- Add 1 to 2 drops of Frankincense to an 8-ounce glass of water to improve digestion.
- For migraine relief, place 2 drops of Frankincense and 2 drops of Copaiba under your tongue.
**Make sure you have food grade Frankincense essential oil for ingestion and therapeutic grade for topical applications or aromatherapy. If you’re purchasing essential oils, avoid oils that say “fragrance oil” or “perfume oil” as these can be synthetic and don’t provide the desired health benefits. Instead, look for oils that say “pure essential oil” or “100% essential oil” for the highest quality essential oils. Each doTERRA essential oil is carefully and thoroughly tested using the strict CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® quality protocol. Experienced essential oil users will immediately recognize the superior quality standard for naturally safe, purely effective therapeutic-grade doTERRA essential oils.**
