I recently got the Family Physicians Kit from DoTerra. I am really enjoying checking out the new oils and experimenting.
One of the ones I have been most excited to try is Frankincense. Frankincense, one of the gifts from the wise men to baby Jesus. It has been used since ancient times for incense and rituals as well as medicinal purposes.
Frankincense is being or has been researched for:
Anti-Aging and Sun Damage
It’s properties are:
analgesic, antidepressant, antifungal, anti –inflammatory, antiseptic, astringent, cellular protection, diuretic, expectorant, sedative.
I recently added it to my nightly face serum. And yesterday I was feeling like I was coming down with a cold, I was very tired and had a sore throat. I started taking the ‘flu bomb’ and added 2 or 3 drops of frankincense. I feel great today! I am looking forward to using it in other ways and really testing it out long term.
