Franky Friday – Diffuser Blend 1st May 2020

Each week I share a different way to use the ‘King of Oils’ aka Frankincense aka Franky boy aka Franky.

It’s either one of the three ways which you can use essential oils. Topically, Aromatically or internally ( which is OK for Frankincense but not the case for all oils. Also I’m only talking about doterra)

Today I’m sharing a way to use Franky Aromatically through scent.

Gratitude diffuser blend

Start of a new month.

End of another ‘work’ week. A Perfect time to reflect on all you are grateful for.

Things you ‘already have’ & that on its way to you. So much to be grateful for.

The blend

🔆 2 drops  Frankincense

🔆2 drops of wild orange (the oil of abundance)

⭐️ A daily gratitude practice is something worth incorporating if you don’t already have one. It can be as simple as thinking of everything you are grateful for after you wake up while saying thank you, writing down a gratitude list, writing 3 things you are grateful for, going around the table before a meal and saying one thing each, recording it in a voice memo.

🔆 Show gratitude for all the things you love & want to keep in your life and things you want to attract more of. Speak in the present tense for that which you are wanting to bring into your life. I have a blog post on starting your own gratitude practice here

Check in each Friday for other Frankincense uses. I also have post here on the Benefits & Uses of Frankincense.

If you don’t yet have your own oils & would like some you can order right here. Feel free to message me if you need help selecting the right starter kit.

Much love

How to start your own Gratitude practice 

I have almost finished my fave gratitude journal so was inspired to write this post.

My Kikki K gratitude journal almost full I love the gold edging 👌🏽

Do you practice gratitude?

I guess I was first introduced to it via The Secret back in 2006. Which talks about being thankful for what you have now & talking in a present tense about future desires you wish to manifest.

Getting the gratitude journal from Kikki K helped me to make it a practice.

The journal has 3 spaces for each day. Here you write down three things you are grateful for. I often use up more than the three spaces depending how inspired I am.

A great tip from Marie Forleo was to really build out your gratitudes – write very detailed & specific descriptions for each grateful. Especially if it is something you are looking to bring into being – manifest.

Practicing gratitude brings more things to be grateful for into your life.

It’s a favourite practice of many well known figures – Oprah, Tony Robbins, Lewis Howes, Danielle LaPorte, Marie Forleo to name a few.
