I know I say this about every oil I talk and write about, but Frankincense really is my favorite essential oil!
Frankincense: the mother of all oils!
Do yourselves a favor and go google "Frankincense Scientific Studies". The nickname for Frankincense throughout hundreds of years is actually liquid gold! How accurate this is for all of us who use this oil on a daily basis. If you're like me...it's more of like an hourly encounter.
Why is Frankincense so fantastic, you might ask? Well, it might have to do with its ability to fight inflammation, support immune function (this includes autoimmune disorders), and reduce skin imperfections. In fact, I used Frankincense along with Lavender on my belly 3 times a day when I was pregnant. Not ONE stretch mark, people! My OB/GYN said to me at my 38 week appointments, "You must have fantastic genes." Little did he know my mothers stomach still looks like a tiger clawed up her stomach-which she wears very proudly, I might add. Even though I do like to thank my parents for some incredible genes they did pass along, stretchy belly skin is definitely not one of them. So no, Doctor. I definitely do NOT have good stretch mark genes. It was all in the Frankincense and Lavender!
That's not all though, Frankincense is also known for it's ability to reduce chronic stress, anxiousness, and sadness, aid in healing lacerations, support digestive health (constipation, stomach aches, menstrual cramps, etc.), and so much more!
My favorite resource to gain knowledge about Frankincense is doterra.com and drake.com/what-is-frankicense/. Go use some Frankincense, cause we ALL need some in our lives!
Happy Friday, friends!
