LIFE HACK// FRANKINCENSE

Hi guys. I have a new little bottle of liquid gold that I CAN’T SEEM to get enough of? SERIOUSLY. It is the ultimate multi-tasker.,,

1// ASTRIGENT: meaning.. SUPER anti-aging and helps heal wounds & protect skin cells. Add a drop to any oils you are currently using (i.e. jojoba, rosehip) and it is liquid gold. Great for scarring, acne, and wrinkles, lifting & toning.. Um HELLO?!

2// REDUCES ANXIETY.. I can’t make this shit up, I swear!! It has been shown to lower blood pressure & reduce cortisol levels in the body.

3// BALANCES HORMONES.. Byyeeee PMS. It helps regulate estrogen levels, so it’s always good especially during that time!

“The health benefits of frankincense oil are mostly attributed to its anti-inflammatory, astringent, antiseptic, disinfectant, digestive, diuretic and expectorant properties. It also has cicatrisant, carminative, cytophylactic, emenagogue, uterine and vulnerary effects.
Frankincense oil is considered a tonic, as it benefits all the systems operating in the body, including the digestive, respiratory, nervous and excretory systems. It also aids the absorption of nutrients and strengthens your immune system.” (- Dr. Joseph Mercola)

//HOW YOU CAN USE FRANKINCENSE//

Add to a bath… talk about MULTITASKING. It’s great for your skin, your immune system, and your mood. YES PLZ.
Add to your skin oils.. 1 or 2 drops of frankincense in any oils or serum you love to apply to your skin is perfect!
Make tea! Add a few drops (make sure it’s high quality and medicinal grade.. I only use Living Libations) to hot water, it’s amazing for digestion & cellular function!
Oil DIFFUSE- okay so this one is a given, but I’ve been diffusing my Frankincense every morning and it is such a mood booster!! I SWEAR my life on it. And because it is an antiseptic it also helps make sure you don’t get sick. LOVE!!!

What are your favorite essential oils? I’ve been experimenting with Oregano, and also getting some Chaga and Reishi mushrooms in the mail soon. WILL UPDATE asap!!

Xx Valerie
