Our Favorite Frankincense Uses

*Prior to reading this article on frankincense uses (or any other health articles on our website) please take a moment to read our full Health Disclosure.

Frankincense is a beloved oil around our house.

Seriously though, this stuff is liquid gold!

Viruses rarely hit our home, but when they do, this is the first oil we bust out! We diffuse it, rub the kids down with it, and take it in veggie capsules.

Frankincense has great immune system-boosting qualities, and I firmly believe it heals the body.

Definitely an oil we always have on hand.

I also love to use frankincense in combination with coconut oil (or lotion) for my scars and to improve skin definition.

We mostly refer to this oil as FRANK in our home and my husband likes to kid about how much we all love Frank because he’s such a good friend to have around. He’s a little nerdy, but it’s pretty much the truth.

Frank is the number one oil in our home – love, love love this oil! 

Our Favorite FRANK

If you’ve been following our family, you already know we are a huge fan of Young Living oils and this one is no exception.

It all started 3 years ago on our main website Simply Be Wild & Free.
