Another week has flown by at our house. I have taken a few extra kids that we are watching for the summer. This gives the kids something fun to do, and it keeps me busy as well!
This week, we are on the letter F for our Blogging Through the Alphabet Journey. I am excited to share with you about our essential oil for this week, but first, make sure you check out my co-hosts:

This week, I want to share with you one of my most essential oils that I cherish. Today I want to share with you about Frankincense. Frankincense is perhaps one of the most precious of the ancient oils. This is one that was given to Jesus by the Wise Men, and to know that I have that in my house is an honor.
Frankincense is one of the most prized and precious essential oils due to its extensive health benefits. It can be used and has been used in everything from perfumes to lotions. We have used this oil on its own, mixed with others, and in the diffuser since it induces feelings of peace, satisfaction, and overall wellness.
Frankincense can be used topically, aromatically, and internally. With all the health benefits ranging from healthy immune functions, healthy digestive system, the health of the cardiovascular system and nervous system, not to mention the support of the liver and joint function, Frankincense should be in every home as far as I am concerned.
You can diffuse this oil during your morning yoga practice to focus your intention for the day. You can add two drops to a dōTERRA Veggie Capsule to support your healthy cellular function along with many of the other benefits I mentioned. You can add Frankincense to your moisturizer to help reduce the appearance of blemishes and to rejuvenate the skin. You can also apply Frankincense to the bottoms of your feet to help promote feelings of relaxation and to balance the mood.
Frankincense is an oil that versatile and one that I could not imagine not having in our house! Take a moment and watch this video on how doTERRA works with the people who harvest this oil for us:
