Frankincense Essential Oil

Frankincense


Frankincense is my absolute favorite oil that is received in your Premium Starter Kit.  If you have never used this oil before, I believe, you will fall in love with it.  At first I wasn't sure what to do with it except to use it on my new born baby.  It is exceptionally gentle and powerful all at the same time.  As I began experimenting with this oil I fell more in love with it's amazing beneficial properties.  I will give some personal testimony below.

Benefits of Frankincense:

Frankincense is considered the 'holy anointing oil' in the Middle East and has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years.  It was one of the oils given to Christ by the 'Wise Men' after His birth.  It has been used to treat every conceivable illness know to man and was valued more than gold during ancient times.  Only people with great wealth could afford it.
The Bible references frankincense over 52 times and is often referred to as incense.  Check out Exodus 30:34, Leviticus 2:1 and Leviticus 2:2 for just a few of the Biblical references.

How to Use Frankincense:

My family likes to use this oil full strength (although you can dilute to stretch the oil if needed, or when using as a massage).  We use directly on location of the issue, diffuse or inhale.  Frankincense enhances and deepens the ability of other oils, so can be added over another oil (like peppermint) to drive it deeper into the body's tissue.  Be careful, it will REALLY drive it deeper!

Personal Experience:

At first I was unsure how to use this oil since I didn't have any tumors or cancer, and wasn't depressed, but I soon learned that it is used for EVERYTHING.  My new born baby was born toward the end of cold season and was beginning to get congested in her eyes and nose.  It is scary for a new mom to have a new baby that is getting sick.  I began praying and applying frankincense directly to the bridge of her nose and eyebrows (keeping away from the eyes) about every 3 hours, and in 24 hours she was completely decongested!  Plus, the smell and mildness of the oil seemed to calm her and her paranoid Momma!

At one time in my life I kept getting canker sores inside my mouth, and the lavender would ease the pain and they would go away within 3 days (instead of lasting their normal 7-10 days).  This was good, but they kept coming back in different places every few weeks.  I decided to try frankincense before bed instead of lavender and not only was the canker sore GONE the next morning, but I haven't had another one in over 2 years!

At another time I kept getting a sty on my eye every few months that was very painful and would last a few weeks.  I remembered how the frankincense had worked on my canker sore, and decided to apply it on the bridge of my nose and the bony part of my eye (upper cheek and eyebrow), keeping it away from the eye.  The sty went away in 24 hours and again has never returned over a year later!

I met a lady that had been suffering from severe arthritis in her hands for years.  It was so bad she could hardly write or open containers of any kind.  She purchased the panaway and was delighted at how it was helping but asked me if there was anything else she could do.  I told her that she could apply frankincense over the panawy, but to be sure to dilute the panaway because the frankincense would drive it deep into her wrists and hands.  She decided NOT to dilute and said it burned like fire for about 20 minutes, but after that she was pain free for over 2 weeks!  That became her routine every few weeks to enjoy pain free hands!

Premium Starter Kit

I realize I have already told you about the new Young Living Premium Starter Kit, and have even begun telling you about some of the oils you will receive in that kit, like Purification, but I haven't really SHOWN you what abundance comes in the kit.  This is a visual of what comes in the kit, and what I will be going over with you in detail over the next few weeks.  Enjoy!

Premium Starter Kit

Above is a picture of the Premium Starter Kit.  In the blue box on the left side of the picture is the Everyday Oils Collection.  To me, that is the exciting part.  It is 5ml each of 9 different essential oils and blends: Frankincense, lemon, lavender, peppermint, purification, panaway, peace & calming, thieves and valor.

OK, now let's see what comes in the kit on an individual level (I am going in depth on each product over the next few weeks, so stay tuned...this is just a simple overview for your purchasing pleasure).











5ml Bottle Frankincense:
Frankincense is my absolute favorite oil!  It is so mild we even use it on our newly born babies, yet it is powerful enough for the toughest situations! Plus, it smells GREAT.
















5ml bottle Lemon + 2 sample packets:
Lemon is a wonderful 'catch all' oil.  I love this in my water and it is great for making my own cleaning products and diffusing for upper respiratory.
















5ml bottle Lavender + 2 sample packets:
Lavender is another one of those 'catch all' oils.  I like to say, "when in doubt, use lavender."  It is the oil of 1001 uses, literally!  And it smells great.














5ml bottle Peppermint + 2 sample packets:
Peppermint is a strong and clean oil.  Great for make you own cleaning supplies, tummy upset, fever, sinus issues, headaches and more.
















5ml bottle of Purification:
You can read my last post about purification for more detail, but I must say that this is a great purifying and antibacterial oil!



















5ml bottle Panaway:
I would personally call this 'Miracle in a Bottle' for pain relief.  Has a wintergreen scent and cuts to the heart of pain issues.  I have even seen many people that struggle with arthritis swear by this oil after only a few weeks of use.
 















5ml bottle Peace & Calming + 2 sample packets:
This oil has been a lifesaver in our home with small children.  It has helped to soothe/calm coughs before bed, calm wild children, alleviate my restless leg when pregnant and aid in sleep.















5ml Bottle Thieves + 2 sample packs:
Yumm, yumm.  This oil has a cinnamon spice aroma that I could smell all day long. You can read my previous post about this oil, or just wait until I go further in depth in the next few weeks, but this oil has AMAZING antiviral properties.  We love it.  Behind frankincense it is my 2nd favorite oil.










5ml Bottle Valor:
Some people call this chiropractor in a bottle because it helps to balance and align the body while creating feeling of courage, confidence and self-esteem through a light floral scent.  I actually used this on my kids feet as babies to help them sleep; and have heard stories of this silencing the snoring man at night.




















5ml Bottle Stress Away:
I think the name speaks for itself...helps the stress to GO AWAY!










NingXia Red Sample Packets:
You will have to wait for my in depth description of this product to be fully 'wowed'.  This is a very powerful antioxidant drink that seems to help aid the body in it's own natural healing abilities.  And it's yummy too!










Home Diffuser:
When I talk about diffusing essential oils this is what I am talking about.  The kit comes with your very own home diffuser in which you can release the amazing properties of the essential oils directly into the air for you (and everyone else) to breath and benefit from.  I wish every school room, college class and Sunday school used one of these...not to mention the home gym!  (there are also other diffuser available from Young Living)











Roller Filament:
This is great for turning your essential oils bottles from dropper bottles to roller bottles.  I like to pre-dilute my essential oils in a bottle then add this roller filament for easy, on-the-to application.  Very easy to use with children also!






The Premium Starter Kit also comes with packets, booklets and information on everything you need to know.

Purification Essential Oil


Purification is another great oil blend you will receive in your Premium Starter Kit.  If you have never used this oil before, I believe, you will be pleasantly surprised by it's aroma, uses and effectiveness. 

Benefits of Purification:

The properties in the oils used for this blend are highly antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, immune supporting and insect-repelling.

Purification has been known to cleanse and disinfect the air while neutralizing mildew, cigarette smoke and other odors.  It is GREAT for disinfecting and cleansing cuts, scrapes, bites and stings.  My family uses it during cold season by applying diluted to the bottom of the feet and down the spine, and/or diffusing into the air via our home diffuser (which will be spoken about in this Premium Starter Kit series). 



How to Use Purification:

My family likes to dilute 1 part essential oil (EO) with 1 part pure vegetable oil (such as extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil...); basically 1 drop each of EO with 1 drop of vegetable oil, and apply to the bottom of the feet and/or down the spine.  If the irritation is in the throat/ears then I apply to the lymph nodes on the sides of the neck also.

We also love to diffuse for 15-30 minutes every 3 to 4 hours in our home if something particularly nasty seems to be going around in the community.

Directly inhale (just smell from the bottle or put a few drops in your hand to inhale). 

Place 2-4 drops in bath water.

Apply directly to cuts, sores, bruise or wounds (I like to dilute).

Put a few drops on a cotton ball and put in air vents in home, office or vehicle.

Add a few drops to your all natural wool dryer balls or to a damp cloth and put in your clothes dryer.

Add a few drops to a spritz bottle of distilled water and a pinch of Epsom salt to use as an all natural insect repellent.

Or just wear as a perfume to enjoy the refreshing, enlivening and cleansing fragrance.

What Is Purification?:

Purification is a blend of the following therapeutic grade essential oils: Citronella, Lemongrass, Lavandin, Rosemary, Melaleuca and Myrtle.  These particular essential oils are high in antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, anti-infectious, anti-parasitic, immune supporting and other properties.

Personal Experience:

My family replaced our 'traditional' medicine cabinet over 5 years ago to an all natural cabinet featuring Young Living Essential Oils, and we have never looked back.  Once we switched to using therapeutic grade essential oils we were not only able to cut out the toxic over the counter drugs, but we also found ourselves simply not getting sick.  We use our oils faithfully!  Now I live a life of abundance and health rarely getting a sniffle.  Essential Oils is part of that change in not only my life, but in the lives of my family and many others around the world.

Thieves Oil


 
 
One of my favorite essential oils is the 'Thieves' blend. Not only does it have a wonderfully cinnamon spice aroma, but it also contains some of the strongest properties around. I put this oil (slightly diluted) on my kids feet and spine before Sunday school, regular school, gym time or any other highly populated outing.

Yes! Essential Oils can be used as a great defense. 

I also love to diffuse this oil in the fall/winter season to help cleanse our entire house. Actually, I enjoy the entire Thieves line of cleaners, tooth paste, hand sanitizer, soaps and more!



What is Thieves?:
Young Living’s amazing Thieves essential oil blend was inspired by the legend of four fifteenth-century thieves in France who formulated an aromatic blend composed of cloves, rosemary, and other botanicals to use while robbing graves. When captured, they were offered a lesser sentence in exchange for their secret recipe. Young Living’s one-of-a-kind blend is formulated with pure clove, cinnamon bark, rosemary, lemon, and eucalyptus (E. radiata) essential oils. Thieves blend can be found in many of Young Living’s most popular products and is a safe, natural alternative to harsh chemicals and cleaners.

Discover Essential Oils



Video: Protecting Your Children From Germs In The Classroom

Do you use therapeutic grade Essential Oils?  If not, why?  Now is the time to get started...before germs start spreading in school!  We completely replaced our conventional medicine cabinet years ago with non-toxic essential oils and have never looked back.

Young Living (Here) offers several starter kits which you can choose from to purchase as your opening order.  No matter which kit you choose you will get 20% off retail price going forward, and you will have the ability to sell or sign people up under you to receive commissions.  There is a 'catch' to receive commissions though.  If someone purchases under you in a particular month you must have also purchased items yourself that month totaling 50PV.  Getting on the 'Essential Rewards' monthly auto ship (below) will rectify that situation, help you to stock up on oils/beauty/health products and rack up points for free product.

At that time you can also sign up for 'Essential Rewards' which is a program where you get an automatic monthly shipment sent to you house.  With 'Essential Rewards' you earn points that you can use to redeem free product in the future.  This is recommended if you are going to want to order product on a regular basis.  It can be added or removed at anytime and does not have to be done at the time of your initial set up.  The products sent to you monthly can be the same thing every month, or can be changed monthly...completely flexible.  The only thing is that you must spend a minimum of 50PV on that monthly order (approx. $50 + shipping).  Shipping is cheaper with the 'Essential Rewards'.

Depending on how you desire to use your oils you can choose one of several different starter kits.  The best bang for your buck kit would be the 'Premium Starter Kit'.  This kit comes with the entire everyday oils collection (5 ml each of: frankincense, lemon, lavender, peppermint, purification, panaway, peace and calm, thieves, valor), Home Diffuser, Welcome to Young Living booklet, Essential Oils at a Glance user’s guide, Distributor Resource Guide, S.E.E.D. Sharing for Success booklet, Stress Away 5-ml, AromaGlide Roller Fitment, two Lavender Sample Packets, two Peppermint Sample Packets, two Peace & Calming Sample Packets, two Lemon Sample Packets, two Thieves Sample Packets, Sample Packet Business Cards, two NingXia Red 2-oz. samples.  - Which is basically everything you would need to get started and get familiar with a large range of oils and uses...it basically gives you the best jumpstart for a beginner. $150 (the everyday oils kit is $159 all by itself, and the diffuser is $98.68, so this is a great value).

The 'Basic Plus Starter Kit' comes with what you see above minus the Everyday oils collection (which I really think a person needs). $75

The 'Basic Starter Kit' comes with what you see above minus the Everyday oils collection and minus the diffuser (both of which I really think a person needs). $40

Once you sign up and receive your oils/starter kit we should get together (or talk on the phone if you are long distance) for a one-on-one consultation, and allow me to talk to you about what you received, how to use them, and how YOU Personally can get the most benefit out of them for your needs.  We can then also come up with a 6 month plan to wellness through the young living products tailored just for you and your family.
