Frankincense is a much loved oil in the oily world.
Some of the benefits of frankincense are

👑 Scar, wound, stretch mark or acne remedy – makes an awesome duo with Lavender
👑 Natural cold or flu medicine
👑 Stress Relief

👑 Nervous tension
👑 Improves circulation
👑 Boost the immune system
👑 Insect bites
👑 Improves the mood
👑 Brain fog
There are literally so many uses for Frankincense that the list could go on & on. Hence why it is called the King of oils. It has also been known to boost the performance of all other essential oils so putting a drop on frankincense with your other blends or when applied topically can help them to perform at their optimal level.
Doterra Frankincense is safe to use topically – with correct dilution, internally, and aromatically. People use it internally for immunity & inflamation support. You can pop a drop under you tongue to start the day right.
As I mentioned last week I have Frankincense and lavender in my daily face oil. It helps keep the skin smooth, clear, its anti aging, wrinkle fighting and can help to even out the skin.

Ways I’m dreaming of using Frankincense
💟 Teaming it up with Easy Air/Breathe – this duo can support clear airways, soothe coughs and help reduce phlegm. Equal parts of each added to the diffuser or diluted for topical use over the chest.
💟 Goodbye stress – 4 drops balance 4 drops Franky in the diffuser.
💟 Diffusing it for meditation
Amazing success with Frankincense
You can also find amazing articles on Pubmed about Frankincense. They have some studies on there about Frankincense being used to support healing of brain cancers and tumours of the brain. It helped reduce the swelling & inflammation through the sesquiterpene within it. Sesquiterpene is the only compound that can pass the blood brain barrier. Have a look on Pubmed for the studies.
