Frankincense: Gift of Kings

The next oil in the premium starter kit may be familiar to you, at least in name. It was one of the gifts given to the Christ Child, along with gold and myrrh, by the Magi. Its name comes from Medieval French for “real incense.” Frankincense has been used for healing purposes since ancient times. Indeed, it appears in one of the oldest known medical records, the Ebers Papyrus, dating from the 16th century B.C. Young Living’s oil is produced by steam-distilling resin from trees in Somalia.

When diffused, frankincense increases spiritual awareness, promotes meditation, improves attitude and uplifts spirits. When taken internally, frankincense supports your well-being and normal cell health.

Young Living gives these instructions for use:

Topical: Apply 2–4 drops directly to desired area. Dilution not required, except for the most sensitive skin. Use as needed.

Aromatic: Diffuse up to 1 hour 3 times daily.

Internally: Put 2 drops in a capsule. Take 3 times daily.

15 Days of Essentials

Are you ready to change your life?

Yeah, I know, lots of people ask that question. (And now I’m thinking of the light bulb joke: How many therapists does it take to change a light bulb? Only one, but the light bulb has to want to change.)

Seriously, what I’m about to talk about changed my life. But it wasn’t an overnight change. It’s been gradual and kinda snuck up on me.

I bought my Young Living starter kit in August of 2016. I was intrigued by the possibilities of essential oils, but still skeptical. It sounded too good to be true. I made jokes about “snake oil.” But I did enjoy playing alchemist, mixing up my own rollers (little bottles with roller fitments) and shampoo (not a huge success) and rug deodorizer (pretty good).

A year later, I’m totally into the oily lifestyle. In fact, I’m a distributor. No, no, don’t run away, please. This series is intended to help you learn more about the starter kit and what’s in it. If you want to purchase your own, great. If not, that’s fine; at least you’ll understand a bit about my obsession.
