Growing up, I remember the smell of frankincense incense in the church. That aroma etched into my memory like so many other distinctive smells from childhood.
Many years later, when I sought out natural solutions for my growing family, my starter kit of 10 doTERRA essential oils arrived with a bottle of Frankincense oil in it. The aroma of this particular oil was familiar, but better! And little did I know that Frankincense would turn out to be my most cherished essential oil.
Calming, skin soothing, stress relieving, immune supporting, tension reducing… there is a reason why Frankincense is known as the King of Oils. Simply look to its ancient history of therapeutic uses and benefits (if it was good enough for baby Jesus…).
But with so many adulterated oils on the market, it’s difficult to know just by reading a label if your essential oil is pure. That’s why I feel thankful to have found doTERRA!
So here’s just ten of the hundreds of ways to use this precious Frankincense oil…
