Continuing right along with the fourth post of the Essential Oils 101: Premium Starter Kit Series with Frankincense today. I have so much value for the Premium Starter Kit because of the amount of successful experiences with each and every one of the essential oils included in the kit. It truly I the best place to start.
Since 2016, I have turned to my essential oil starter kit for support with issues that arises in our house, on the road, and at work. These experiences continue to amaze me every time because essential oils work, time and time again.
I value every one of the twelve essential oils included in the Premium Starter Kit because each one has impacted our family in various ways. Each one offers unique properties that I have experienced first hand to support my family, dogs included. The simple, yet consistent applications of these essential oil practices in our lifestyle has allowed me to see the power, specifically in the kit, which leads me to sharing these testimonies with you.

My favorite “F” word is Frankincense!
I have a pretty strong connection with Frankincense. If you remember my skin story that I initially experienced when my kit arrived, after only three days of using Frankincense with Lavender and Purification my bumpy skin actually started to diminish. I was astonished that the application of these three had actually started to support my skin because I was at the point of feeling like I would live with horrible skin for my entire life.
After months of trying various personal care products with no success then experiencing changes with my skin’s appearance from the support of these essential oils, you can imagine the emotion. This one moment helped me realized there was something to these things called essential oils and I was eager to give them a try. If you ask other oilers about these moments, we call them “ah-ha moments”. After using Young Living Essential Oils for a few years, I have quite a few of them. We all have them, and I’m sure you will too if you give them the chance and use them consistently.
Skin support is just one of the ways that I use Frankincense in my lifestyle. There is so much to Frankincense, to such a degree it is a very desirable essential oil to many people. There is so much value in each drop, it's pretty amazing Young Living has included it in the Premium Starter Kit.
Frankincense is an essential oil that we use for everyone in our family. There are a few books that I recommend having as a resource if your using Young Living Essential Oils.
Frankincense has been known to be used for thousands of years:
Frankincense is one of the oldest essential oils. Frankincense is considered the “holy anointing oil” in the Middle East and has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years. You may often hear Frankincense mentioned in the bible and was often gifts given to Christ, valued more than gold. In the past, the Chinese used frankincense to support overall health.
Grounding & Calming Aroma:
My husband always knows exactly when I use frankincense because of the distinct aroma, he says it smells like church which to us isn't a bad thing. Frankincense can be describe as having a sweet, warm, Boswellia aroma that is stimulating or centering. Frankincense is useful for its comforting properties, helping the mind focus or overcome challenges. Since everyone is different, we all may use essential oils differently for our own environment.
There are many properties of Frankincense that may result in using it for different reasons such as running late to work, stuck in traffic, heading into church or school, fussing children, or enhancing yoga, what ever it may be you can find something relaxing coming from Frankincense.
It's an earthy essential oil that can be uplifting. Personally, I find it soothing and grounding, and I often use it during peaceful practices or connectedness during yoga, Sunday service, and before bed. There may also be an empowering aroma, when seeking purpose or engaged in prayer or meditation. The aroma of Frankincense creates a safe, calming, relaxing, and comforting environment.
Here are some ideas for using Frankincense aromatically:
When I find myself in a funk, whether it be from work or personalities around me, I know essential oils can create an uplifting environment to combat those feelings. Diffuse or apply a few drops of frankincense with any of my favorite essential oil to uplift mood.
For me I know that the first thing to wear down my immune system is stress. For everyday stress, I apply Frankincense to my temples and wrists so I'm able smell the sweet aroma of Frankincense through the entire day. The aroma help me remember to take deep breaths, settle my mind, and take on the day.
I think of driving or work environments specially for my husband, but whatever brings your life tension, apply a drop of Frankincense on the neck and shoulders.
As I have said, Frankincense can help ground and focus so use during prayer, meditation, or mental strain. After I apply the roller or a few drops directly and take a few deep breaths while I feel the calm wash over.
I haven't been in school for a while but I still take some classes for teaching. I apply on the back of neck or put a few drops into the diffuser to help improve concentration during assignments or school work.
Yoga, Mindfulness, or Meditative Practice
As you can see from the beginning of this post in discussing the aroma creating an enhanced environment, Frankincense is a perfect essential oil when the room is quiet and you're left with your breathe, your body, and your mind.
In 2016, I had the opportunity to attend a friend's essential oil and yoga workshop in Philadelphia, at a studio that used Young Living Essentials Oils. Adding essential oils to the practice that day was more grounding and centering than I have ever experienced before. Now I make essential oils part of every practice.
I typically do my yoga practice at home, following several great channels on YouTube. I enhance the session with the diffuser on and topical application of essential oils that call to my intentions for the day. I also really enjoy applying my yoga roller to my wrists, feet, and spine before the practice.
Yoga Roller: In a 5 ml roller bottle, add 10 drops of Frankincense and 10 drops of Sacred Mountain or Lavender then fill the rest with fractionated coconut oil.
Skin Support and DIY Skin Care Routines:
Frankincense has many properties to support all types of skin. There are so many different ways to use Frankincense to support healthy skin.
Here are a few ideas:
Night Under Eye Roller: In a 5 ml roller bottle, add 5 drops of Frankincense, 5 drops Lavender, 5 drops of Lemon essential oil, fill the rest with sweet almond oil. Only apply this roller at night due to lemon causing photosensitivity in the sun.
Boo-Boo Roller: In a 5 ml roller bottle, add 5 drops of Frankincense, 5 drops of Helichrysum, 5 drops of Lavender, 5 drops of Myrrh, fill the rest with fractionated coconut oil.
Frankincense is part of many of our wellness regimens that we use consistently to stay above the wellness line and support my body. Frankinsence has several properties that encourage and support healthy cells and functions to come back to their foundations.
Wellness diffuser blend: Frankincense, Lemon, Thieves, Raven and Eucalyptus create an aroma that smells amazing. From fall through winter you can most likely smell these in my diffuser in my locker room office or living room.
Wellness roller recipe: In a 5ml roller bottle, add 5 drops of Frankincense, Lemon, Thieves, and Raven, then fill the rest of the roller with fractionated coconut oil. I apply on the bottoms of my feet and up my spine every night.
Wellness Bath Salts Recipe:
Wellness with Frankincense Vitality:
I often use Frankincense Vitality to support immunity and boost overall wellness, specially respiratory and immune support. Here are several ways that I use Frankincense Vitality:
Wellness Capsule: In a “00” veggie capsule, add a drop of Lemon Vitality, Thieve Vitality, Frankincense Vitality, and Copaiba Vitality then fill the rest of the capsule with fractionated coconut oil by using a dropper. Put the other half of the veggie capsule on top and take with water.
Since Frankincense promotes peace and relaxation, for mind and body, I apply before heading to bed. Frankincense allows me to become balanced and ready for quality sleep. Read How to Get the Best Sleep Ever with Essential Oils to learn more about quality sleep and essential oil ideas.
