A few years ago, the only reference I had to frankincense was the story of the three wise men and baby Jesus (said like Daryl Hannah in Steel Magnolias).
Today, I wanted to share some of my favorite uses, as well as a special promotion from doTERRA that I am SO excited about!
1. Immune System Boosting
Rub a drop onto the bottom of each foot each day or diffuse in the air to strengthen your immune system and protect you from illness.
To heal acne, dab on melaleuca essential oil. To make acne fade quickly, dab on frankincense essential oil.
Frankincense essential oil is a great stress reliever. Rub a drop onto the bottoms of your feet in the morning or apply behind your ears when you feel stressed.
My go-to headache remedy is a drop each of lavender and frankincense essential oils. Rub into the temples and forehead.
Frankincense is excellent at making scars fade away. Mix a drop of frankincense with a teaspoon of coconut oil and rub onto scars morning and night.
6. Bee Stings
We’ve taken the pain out of a few bee stings with frankincense essential oil. Apply a drop to the sting. (Dilute with kids.)
Apply a drop to the palms of the hands and rub them together. Cup over your nose and breathe deeply.
8. Wound Healing
Mix a couple drops of frankincense essential oil with one tablespoon of coconut oil for a quick healing balm for owies. Or, use my multipurpose herbal healing balm, which already contains frankincense.
9. Skin Beautifying
Dilute 1-2 drops in a teaspoon of coconut oil and apply after washing your face to moisturize, soften and refresh skin.
10. Back and Joint Pain
Apply 1-2 drops of frankincense essential oil to painful joints and lower back for relief.
Frankincense Promotion (Extended to January 15th!)
Until January 15th, doTERRA is giving away free bottles of frankincense essential oil with 200 pv orders. And no, we’re not talking the little bottles here. They’re giving away a full-size, 15 mL bottle of frankincense essential oil with every 200 pv order. Mind. Blown.
So what does that mean?
- If you’re a member and place a Loyalty Rewards Program order of at least 200 pv anytime this month, you’ll get a free bottle.
- If you buy retail and spend $200 any time this month, you’ll get a free bottle.
- If you want to become a member (to save 25% on orders) and enroll with any enrollment kit of at least 200 pv, you get a free bottle! (This probably excites me more than it should, but I don’t care.)
My favorite enrollment kits are the Family Wellness Kit, the Home Essentials Kit and the Natural Solutions Kit. All of them will qualify for you the free oil! To enroll, follow this link (select Join as an Independent Product Consultant).
And if you place your order and realize you need to order more (like for presents), if you place another 200 pv order in December, you get another free bottle. Woo hoo!
