What’cha Wanna Know Wednesday Q&A

You bought an essential oil, but what do you do with it?
I have the oily answer!


Today’s Feature…FRANKINCENSE {one of my ultimate favourites}  Thank you to my dear friend  Natalie G for asking her question on What’cha Wanna Know Wednesday!!

I’m featuring this incredible bottle of Frankincense from the company Young Living, I only speak about products I have used, loved or have learned about. That doesn’t mean the tips/uses in this post can’t be applied to the brand you own, I personally use this brand topically so I can only speak for my experience with that in YL. I would suggest you spot test yourself with your brand to ensure your body doesn’t have a negative response. Other than that, all information can be utilized regardless of brand.

Frankincense Essential Oil

This particular oil dates back a loonngg time, we are talking biblical. In fact ancient Egyptians used this oil to promote younger, fresher skin…one of my many uses as well 🙂 It’s been said to have been found in King Tut’s Tomb, I find that really interesting.
Facts about Frankincense:
-Sourced from the resin of the Boswellia carterii or Boswellia sacra tree.
-Known for its sweet, warm, balsamic aroma.
-Is known to promote healthy cellular function.
-Can increase spirituality and inner strength.

What My Medical Aesthetician Uses It For.
Linda Langenegger has been in the industry for 25+ years, she dramatically improved my skin and was kind enough to share with me the reasons she loves using this essential oil with her clients.
{link to her FB page at the end of the post} 

Linda Love’s It Because:
-She finds it boosts the effectiveness of other oil its paired with.
-Uses it for perfume as a way to reduce toxic exposure {one of my fav uses as well}
-Uses for anti-aging treatments
-To shrink and reduce skin warts
-Excellent for post treatment healing.

What Ways Do I Love Using It?
-Topically, neat{straight on the skin, I’ve done test patches to ensure there’s no response} on my temples before a yoga practice to help me stay in the moment and open to deeper relaxation.
-Topically on my face with my Serum from Eminence{Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Serum}, two drops.
-As perfume, one drop on my collarbone and another on my wrists.
-I diffuse it with YL Peace & Calming to relax and unwind when I need to quiet the mind.
-Aromatically I breathe it in whenever I am feeling over anxious, worried.
-Before a meeting, workshop, or personal development meeting, I take two drops in my hands and take 5 deep breathes.
-Diffusing it for a beautiful aroma, I mix 3-5 drops with citrus, lavender or vetiver essential oils.

There are so many uses for this power house Frankincense, I find Pinterest a great place to find diffuser blend recipes, DIY facial treatment recipes or aromatic rituals.

Natalie, I hope this provides you the answers you were looking for. I hope this oil can become a daily staple for you and your healthy habits 🙂 

Yay For Oily Goodness!!!
