Are You Aware Just How POWERFUL Frankincense Essential Oil Can Be?

FrankI’ve been doing some research on Frankincense today and this oil is MIND BLOWING, you guys! First of all, it’s one of Young Living’s most expensive oils, but it comes in the Premium Starter Kit, which is an incredible deal and the most cost-effective way to get this oil! (I have one $20 off voucher) – Frankincense was given to baby Jesus as a gift, so you know it has to be good.

The word Frankincense appears 17 times in the King James Bible. It’s considered a holy oil in the Middle East and has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years.

Frankincense has an earthy, uplifting aroma that’s perfect for grounding and spiritual connectedness, so it’s perfect to diffuse during meditation or prayer!

It is so good for promoting healthy skin and helping with those fine lines and wrinkles.

Frankincense Vitality oil can be taken internally to support well-being and normal cell health!

Young Living distills its Frankincense oil from Boswellia carterii trees located in northern Africa near the Arabian peninsula. I LOVE learning about these oils and everything they can do for us! Knowledge is power and power is in Prayer!!

Let’s take a closer look at what the components of frankincense mean for our daily lives:

5 Amazing Uses for Frankincense Essential Oil

1. Beautiful Skin: Frankincense essential oil is great for your skin.

2. Healthy Respiration: Support your respiratory system with Frankincense. Inhale directly from the bottle, diffuse, or rub into hands and inhale. You can also rub some Frankincense essential oil on your toes or directly under the toes. Apply to chest and/or spine.

3. Calming: I use Frankincense to calm my family young children when they are sick, worried, or overwhelmed. I rub a few drops, diluted with a carrier oil, on their chest and they always seem so peaceful afterward.

4. Help Support Emotional Well-Being and Hormones: Frankincense has been use as an uplifting mood booster. Diffuse it and notice the difference.

5. Help with Clarity and Focus: Used topically on the base of the neck or used aromatically can help with mental clarity and improve focus. You can also place three drops in the palm of your hand, rub hands together to warm the oil, and then hold hands around your hose and mouth while taking 3 deep breaths.

Melrose Essential Oil


My favorite essential oil this month is Melrose Essential Oil. Melrose oil can help you achieve flawless, beautiful skin that glows with health. I have been amazed over the past two weeks what it has done for my completion. My skin texture and complexion have improved greatly just by apply a couple of drops of melrose oil to morning and night routine.

As you apply Melrose oil on your skin, its nourishing constituents will be deeply absorbed by the skin, thereby delivering the nutrients that will boost your skin’s health. It will even out your skin tone and brighten up your dull skin. The result is a smoother, softer skin that glows.

What is in Melrose Essential Oil Blend?

There are four different essential oils in Melrose. They are listed below along with a brief description of each oil.

  • Melaleuca alternifolia Essential Oil (Tea Tree Oil) has cleansing properties and supports healthy skin by refreshing and comforting.
  • Melaleuca quinquenervia (MQV, Nerolina or Naouli Oil) is a cousin to Tea Tree Oil but this has a more delicate aroma and is said to be gentler. I often use this oil over melaleuca alternifolia for the animals as they seem to prefer it.
  • Rosemary Esential Oil (Rosmarinus officinalis CT cineol)  was one of the most broadly used plants throughout the ages. Supports a healthy lifestyle regimen and overall well-being*. Rosemary includes the naturally occurring constituents eucalyptol and alpha-pinene.
  • Clove Essential Oil (Syzygium aromaticum) promotes a healthy immune response, and may support overall wellness*.  An important ingredient in Young Living’s Thieves blend, its principal constituent is eugenol.

*Side Effects of Melrose Oil
The four essential oils that comprise Melrose oil are generally safe for use; however, people with sensitive skin are advised to do a skin patch test before use as it may cause an allergic reaction. There is not enough data on its safety on pregnant and lactating women, so it is best to speak to a doctor before using the product.

Melrose can calm and soothe the mind. That is right it can have a Spiritual Influence. Diffusing Melrose in a room can help with negative emotions. Diffuse Melrose in your room or workspace if it is having an emotionally effect on your mind, specially if there has been an accident, conflict or irritation. This can be soothing and help will release trauma and stress.

This oil is also fantastic for those who are impatient.  You know those people that get annoyed and irritated easily by being impatient! WOW…..This might be the main reason why I love it so essential oil so much. The oil will help you accept the situation as it is, help you restore your balance and release urgency.

Curious to how to use this oil?  

  • Use diluted – 50:50 dilution   (one part essential oil: one part of vegetable oil for adults).  Then,
    • Apply several drops (2-4) on feet, ears and brow
    • Apply several drops (2-4) to area
    • Apply to chakras/vitaflex points
  • Directly inhale, or\
  • Diffuse.

This oil is EarthKosher Certified!

Natural Anti Static Laundry Options


Of course before switching to all-natural products, we used dryer sheets, so static in the laundry was never really an issue. But now that I know the dangers of dryer sheet.  I’ve had to resort to more natural ways to get rid of static cling.

What dangers are we talking about?  Here are just some of the chemicals inside fabric softeners and what they’ve been linked to:

  • Benzyl acetate: Linked to pancreatic cancer
  • Benzyl Alcohol: Upper respiratory tract irritant
  • Ethanol: On the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Hazardous Waste list and can cause central nervous system disorders
  • A-Terpineol: Can cause respiratory problems, including fatal edema, and central nervous system damage
  • Ethyl Acetate: A narcotic on the EPA’s Hazardous Waste list
  • Camphor: Causes central nervous system disorders
  • Chloroform: Neurotoxic, anesthetic and carcinogenic
  • Linalool: A narcotic that causes central nervous system disorder
  • Pentane: A chemical known to be harmful if inhaled

I love my dryer balls.  Which are made of felted wool they are toss in the dryer along with my laundry.  They help speed up drying time as well as reducing static.


Who doesn’t love their clothes to smell? I add 3-4 drops of my favorite essential oils to each dryer ball. This usually lasts 2-4 loads before I have to add more! Here’s a few essential oil recommendations; it’s fun creating combinations that make your clothes smell so wonderful:

  • Lavender and Orange.
  •  Purification and Tea Tree.  Great when cleaning sheets during the immune boosting season.
  • Orange and Stress Away. Smells like a dreamsicle.
  • Jade Lemon
  • Peppermint and Ylang-Ylang for sheets and towels


  • Add organic which hazel in a small spray bottle
  • add 5 drops of lavender essential oil (EO of choice)
  • Spray on static clothes and voila!
