HISTORICAL USE OF FRANKINCENSE
Frankincense is probably one of the most well-known aromatic plants of the Bible! Most people are familiar with it being one of the gifts brought to the Christ Child at His birth, and it is mentioned many times in the Old Testament as well? In fact, any time it mentions incense burning in the temple, it is referring to the same aromatic plant from which we get Frankincense essential oil!
Frankincense is recorded as being an important medicinal plant in many ancient cultures. The Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, and Israelites all used Frankincense as part of their worship, and it was often used for cleansing and purifying after a baby was born.
Ever wanted to wipe your social media clean and start fresh. I’ve had lots of “friends” but at the same time felt very lonely.
I was a member of A LOT of online groups but none were a place I felt safe.
I long to be surrounded by other strong women who are doing their best. The best for their families, for their children, in the workplace, in the world.
I’m searching for a place where we can lift each other up, say ALL THE THINGS, learn from one another and laugh when the days are hard.
If I’ve invited you, you’re my people. I see you doing all the things and I want to cheer you on. I believe you have something to offer the other women I know and I want to invite you to speak over them.

Ask a question.
Encourage each other.
Create the space you’ve been searching for.
Here’s a little sobering reminder that just because we assume it’s safe, tested, and on our shelves for purchase, doesn’t make it so.
The TSCA of 1976 (The Toxic Substances Control Act) grandfathered in approx. 65-100k chemicals currently on the market today (i.e. they haven’t had any safety testing & we know little about them).
Of the chemicals tested, toxic labeling is required only if 50% or more of the animals tested with the chemical die.
Under the TSCA, manufacturers are protected by trade secret laws that allow them to keep their ingredient list a secret.
To date, the EU (European Union) has banned 1,300 chemicals in cosmetics; the FDA in America has banned only eleven.
I’m also uncomfortable with all the lack of disclosure in ingredients, especially fragrances.
Now that we know the ingredients that can cause us harm, we are empowered to enact change in the world around us. This is why we must read labels. We must understand what is going on and in our bodies. We must protect our future and present children.
We must take responsibility on ourselves to understand. And that’s exactly what here to help you do!
Even Young Living is constantly having to learn and grow as we discover new effects of products and combinations. You will see reformulations and changes as they constantly shift as our knowledge as a society grows. This is the mark of a company with your best interests at heart.
But I can tell you how they make me FEEL. And this one? It makes me feel like everything is going to be ok. It calms me and helps me push through, even on days I don’t want to.
How does it work? No clue. I mean I know about how oils work in general…..I’m just no super smarty pants.
But I wanted to be able to tell you more….so I looked it up. Want to know what I found?
Here goes…it contains:
Spruce that creates balance and grounds the body. Helps you release emotional blocks.
Ylang Ylang can help you focus your thoughts and filter out the ever-present garbage. It brings back feelings of self-love, confidence, joy, and peace.
Fir may help create a feeling of grounding, anchoring and empowerment.
Cedarwood was used traditionally by the North American Indians to enhance their spiritual communication. It creates the symbolic effect of the umbrella protecting the earth and bringing energy in from the universe. At night the animals in the wild lie down under the tree for the protection, recharging, and rejuvenation the trees bring them.
I don’t know if those Indians were talking to MY God….but I know mine
hears me….so thankful for that.
This on my wrists…Cedarwood and Lavender going in my nightstand diffuser for all the sleep goodness ….putting the kids to bed and going to knock out a bit of work for the next hour.
What’s in your diffuser at night?
