Frankincense is mentioned A LOT in the bible. Essential oils in general are mentioned a lot in the bible as people used them for perfume and to heal.
And that's over 2000 years ago.
And if we go even FURTHER back, egyptians used frankincense to embalm their loved ones. Frankincense was considered an ointment as well as myrrh.
So basically, this is one of the oldest oils in the everyday living kit.
ps. yes I realise there is a typo in the picture to the left... will fix it eventually ha.
Frankincense has a very strong smell to it; I've used it for scars, meditation, and crazily enough, I plan on taking it internally. You can ingest frankincense! I've seen shots of ningxia red with drops of frankincense in them and I am going to do that once my ningxia comes in.
Really, is there anything frankincense can't do?! I see posts on facebook groups for young living oil all the time asking 'how can I fix this?' or 'what should I take for that?' and everytime I see: when in doubt use frankincense. Because if it worked wayyyy back then, shouldn't it still work for us now?
Now, i'm going to go get some frankincense, rub it on my temples and stop this headache before it starts because it is starting to snow outside... sigh. The first snow of the season. Ciao for now!
