Frankincense Essential Oil 101
Frankincense is a resinous oil that’s derived from tree sap. It’s been used for ages in traditional ceremonies (we’re talking Biblical times) and was also used by ancient Egyptians in both perfumes and salves. Nowadays, it’s known for its relaxing, somewhat spiritual properties.
We love diffusing Frankincense before bed, and also incorporating it into our beauty routines—because if it worked for Cleopatra, it’s definitely good enough for us.
How we use it
- Diffuser blend: add 7 drops of Frankincense and 7 drops of Lavender in a diffuser beside your bed for a calming, nighttime aroma.
- Eye serum: add 2 drops topically under and beside the eyes to help prevent signs of wrinkles naturally.
- Mindful moment: put 5 drops into the palm of your hand and rub on your meditation beads or crystals to help create a calming and restorative practice.
Blends well with
Lavender, Geranium, Ylang Ylang.
