7 Ways to Use Frankincense Essential Oil

Frankincense essential oil is a favorite of mine, and of many people.  It smells wonderful and has so many great uses and powers.

Here are just 7 simple ways to use Frankincense.

  1. Support your immune system

    Inhale (from its bottle, or diffuse it.)  Frankincense is a wonderful essential oil for tranquility and clarity – and it will purify the air and kill microbes to support your immune system!  You could also add some drops of Frankincense to a carrier oil or cream and use it topically to help your immune system.  Or buy a blend already made with Frankincense in it!frankincense zen bottle

  2. Help relieve arthritis or inflammation

    Put some drops in a cream or organic oil, and smooth on the affected areas. Arthritic hands, feet and joints love Frankincense.  In the U.K., Cardiff University scientists found that Frankincense could inhibit the production of key inflammatory molecules, helping prevent the breakdown of the cartilage tissue that causes these conditions.(ScienceDaily August 4, 2011.)

  3. Meditate with it

    Diffuse while meditating or praying – it’s a great choice and so helpful.meditate on beach

  4. Support your Mind

    Apply 1-2 drops of frankincense essential oil in a tsp. of carrier oil to the back of your neck and your temples for better focus or clarity. Frankincense can help with oxygenation.

  5. Zen Out if Stressed – Rub Your Chest (and it Helps the Respiratory System, too!)

    Frankincense in a carrier oil or cream, applied to the chest will invigorate and support deep breaths during occasional stress. It is known to help with respiratory issues, too.

  6. Diffuse with Lemon

    Frankincense loves to be paired with lemon essential oil for a purifying aroma.  Especially good if someone in your home has a cold – keep those bacteria away!

  7. Make Your Own Facial Serum

    2 drops of Frankincense + 2 drops of Lavender and an ounce of carrier oil (we like Baobab, Grapeseed or Jojoba) makes a beautiful face serum!  Use morning and evening for glowing healthy skin. Frankincense is wonderful for regenerating cells and supporting aging skin.
