Because I have shared so much of my journey here over the years, it is only fitting that I now share the things that are helping me the most!
And frankincense is probably THE OIL that has helped me on my journey to emotional wellness more than any other! (regular label for skin & diffusing, vitality label for ingesting!)
Of all the ancient scripture oils, frankincense has the greatest story and the longest history – widely regarded as the most powerful aromatic substance in ancient times. Frankincense historically has been considered more valuable than gold.
Frankincense trees exist today that could very well have existed during the time of Christ. Our Frankincense is SO amazing and there is none in the world like it—harvested from trees that are more than 40 years old by the expertise of Bedouin shepherds that have been doing this for thousands of years.
4 Ways I Use Frankincense
- I put a drop of frankincense in my face moisturizer every morning. Frankincense is so good for your skin, among many other things!
- I put a drop of frankincense vitality on my thumb and press to the roof of my mouth for moments of stress & overwhelmed feelings. You can do this as needed.
- I put frankincense (with Peace & Calming – heavenly!) in my diffuser at night when it’s been a really long day! 2 drops of each. In addition to the diffuser, I carry a bottle in my purse and smell as needed.
- For the last week or so, for extra support, I have been putting 2-3 drops in a capsule for extra emotional support. (Do not ingest oils from walmart or anywhere else…you don’t know exactly what all is in these oils.)
How to Research
I wanted to make a quick recommendation. I know for many of us oils start out as being really weird and we find ourselves pretty skeptical. I know. I’ve been there. Ask my good friend that I bought my starter kit from. I think she tried to convince me for over a year. ha! AND I did NOT buy my starter kit for emotional wellness. I got started with essential oils for other reasons…but emotional wellness has been the NUMBER ONE benefit I never expected. Essential oils are SO good for mood.
Your sense of smell goes straight to that part of your brain where your emotions, memories and hormones are stored. Do you have any smells that trigger memories for you? THAT is why essential oils work! Your other senses do not do this!
Do some google research:
- sense of smell and limbic system
- essential oils and amygdala
- go to PubMed and type different oils and benefits into the search bar. I dare you.
- sense of smell and memories
- sense of smell and emotions
- essential oils and emotions
Getting Started with Essential Oils
The best way to get started with essential oils is NOT to get one oil and hope it changes your life. 🙂

I use Frankincense and Lavender in my face serum and love the results!! I also use Valor for anxiety and it is amazing! I will have to try the capsules or roof of mouth- thanks!
Are you recommending ONLY Young Living oils? What about oils from a health food store? How do I know a “good/safe” oil?
I am. I’ve been to 4 of our farms and have seen the entire process and trust there are no synthetics , pesticides, etc in our bottles. You can’t do that with other companies. I personally will not ingest or rub oils on my body that I don’t know where they came from!
The other nice thing about young living is that when you use my link I become your oily support team. We have an education group, we answer questions, I spend full time hours helping my customers!! ❤️ I know other places you buy oils from aren’t going to answer your text about what to do for your child’s tummy ache, etc. it’s my job and I love it!
