Favourite benefits and uses of frankincense

Our favourite ways to use frankincense
  •  For seasonal immune support - rub 1 drop of Frankincense on the bottoms of the feet each day.
  •  For stress - rub 1 drop of Frankincense on the back of the neck. Also, at the end of a long day, you can add 1 drop of Frankincense and 1 drop of Lavender to a warm bath and soak.
  • When you or someone around you is not feeling well or you feel like you're coming down with something - place 10 drops each of Frankincense, OnGuard, Lemon, and Oregano in a 10ml glass roller ball. Fill the rest of the bottle up with Fractionated Coconut Oil. Then, rub a few swipes on the bottoms of your feet each day.
  • Headache relief - place 1 drop of Frankincense and 1 drop of Copiaba under the tongue.
  • To reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, or blemishes - add 1 drop of Frankincense to your favorite face cream and rub into the skin.
  • Because of its emotional and spiritual effect, the high vibrational aroma of frankincense essential oil is commonly used in prayer and meditation, helping a person drop out of their mind and ego and move into presence with their spirit or center of consciousness.
Menstrual Discomfort Blend: 
Massage 2 drops Sandalwood and 2 drops Frankincense over the abdomen and lower back to ease discomfort.

Health benefits of Copaiba essential oil

Copaiba essential oil is an incredible oil that is derived from the resin of the copaiba tree. While copaiba doesn't contain psychoactive cannabinoids, the main component caryophyllene may be neuroprotective and have cardiovascular and immune benefits. It’s also a powerful antioxidant that promotes immune health!

As you know, I use doTERRA essential oils, and their Copaiba oil is a blend of resin from Copaifera reticulata, officinalis, coriacea, and langsdorffii.

Here are 7 Ways to Use Copiaba Essential Oil:
1. Liver support - rub one drop over liver each day.

2. Maintain Healthy Blood Pressure - Place 1 drop under the tongue each day, or put 1 drop in a veggie capsule and swallow with water and/or rub 1 drop on the spine daily.

3. Immune and Thyroid Support - Place 1 drop of Copiaba and 1 drop of Frankincense under the tongue each day and/or rub 1 drop of each on the spine daily.

4. Digestive System - Rub 1 drop of Copaiba and 1 drop of Peppermint over the stomach or lower abdomen.

5. To Calm the Nervous System - Rub 1 drop Copaiba on the spine each day.

6. Inflammation - Place 1 drop Copaiba under the tongue each day, or put 1 drop in a veggie capsule and swallow with water and/or rub 1 drop on the spine daily.

7. For Occasional Intense Headaches
- Place 1 drop of Copaiba and 1 drop of Frankincense under the tongue and rub 1 drop of each on the area of the head that hurts.
