What is the best way to use Frankincense Essential Oil? Today I will talk about different uses for Frankincense Essential Oil and how it can help in your daily routine.

The other day my friend Brooke and I were sitting in her room with an arsenal of Essential oils (read: starter kit). We were having a chill girls night, and couldn’t decide what to diffuse. We wanted to wind down, but Lavender can put you to sleep. I personally like to fall asleep with Cedarwood, so that was out. We thought about some citrus oils to clear our minds, but sometimes that’s too rejuvenating for nighttime. Then, we settled on Frankincense – the perfect oil to relax and provide a comforting atmosphere – and had an amazing evening. I LOVE the earthy and uplifting aroma – not as earthy as some others, and to me it’s a bit clarifying. It even blends well with most other essential oils. This is the fun part for me – you get to try a bunch of different essential oils & combinations, see how they affect you, and come up with amazing ways to add them to your daily life.
Here are the BEST uses for Frankincense Essential oil:
Diffuse to use aromatically or dilute and rub on the bottoms of your feet for a healthy immune system. If you’re “fighting” an illness – there are some even better options, but this is great for overall cellular health and can be used as part of a regular, natural regimen. Yay, preventative measures!
Frankincense will enhance your beauty routine – not only is it soothing to the skin, it reduces the appearance of stretch marks and scars. It can reduce the appearance of other imperfections on your skin, too! This means you can get that youthful look without dropping mad cash on expensive, chemically laden beauty creams.
Idea: blend with coconut oil, vitamin E oil, Cedarwood, and Lavender for a calming night cream – wake up with brighter skin.
This essential oil is perfect for seeking your purpose and spiritual connectedness. Diffusing Frankincense can help you find a deeper connection with your mind, and is a great way to enhance practicing yoga, meditation, or prayer.
Collect Your Thoughts
Frankincense is calming and will help clear your mind without the energizing feel of Peppermint and Citrus oils, and won’t put you to sleep like Lavender and isn’t quite as earthy as Cedarwood. Definitely a must for soul-searching.
Use on your joints and this is where that soothing effect and cellular health perk comes into play!
Balance Mood Swings
Rub on the bottom of your feet to help balance mood swings. This oil is naturally uplifting, so you could also diffuse it to help lift your spirits!
Frankincense Pairs Well With: Cedarwood
Diffuse with Cedar Wood for a comforting atmosphere, great for grounding, feeling safe, and just “chilling” without being put to sleep by something like Lavender. This combo is also great for your skin care regimen! Get yours here.
