My Favorite Essential Oil: Frankincense

Frankincense is my favorite essential oil. It’s rightly called “the king of oils,” and was a gift to baby Jesus along with gold and myrrh. Hey, if it’s good enough for Him, it’s good enough for me. That alone speaks so much about the value of this oil.

You can use doTERRA Frankincense essential oil can be used topically, aromatically, and internally. Remember, when using essential oils on infants dilute 1 drop of essential oil to 1 tablespoon of fractionated coconut oil (FCO). Frankincense also has the ability to magnify the effect of other essential oils, so throughout this post you’ll notice I’ll give suggested pairings along the way.

Overall Health: For overall health, I like to take 1 drop of frankincense under my tongue every day. This oil is packed with antioxidants and will support brain and cellular health.

Immune Support: I have what I call a “FLOOM BOMB.” In a roller bottle, I put 3-5 drops each of Frankincense, Lemon, OnGuard, Oregano, and Melaleuca and top it off with FCO. This combination is like magic. I roll it on my spine and the bottom of my feet when I’m feeling under the weather, and I’m back on my feet the next day. It’s also soothing for your scratchy throat. Just roll on over your throat and massage over your lymph nodes.

Anti-Aging: Frankincense is packed with anti-aging properties and is a powerhouse when paired with Myrrh. You can make your own blend in a roller bottle, or check out doTERRA’s Immortelle Anti-Aging blend. It’s got Frankincense, Myrrh, Lavender, Rose, and Sandalwood. Fine lines and wrinkles don’t stand a chance.

Emotional/Mood Support: If you deal with mood swings, sadness, or anxious feelings then you should definitely be diffusing frankincense in your home. When I need my mood to be uplifted I diffuser Lemon and Frankincense. If you need to reduce anxious feelings and calm your emotions, try diffusing Lavender and Frankincense. It’s a great blend for sleep as well!

Soothing Tension & Pain: You can use Frankincense for headaches and for muscle pain. For headaches, apply Frankincense, Lavender, and Peppermint where you’re feeling your head tension. For sore muscles, combine Frankincense and Deep Blue and massage into your muscles.

These are just a few ways you can start using doTERRA Frankincense in your home. Remember, this month you can get Frankincense for FREE with a qualifying order. Want more details?

doTERRA BOGOs: Petal Diffuser & FREE Wild Orange & Cassia

Hey y’all, so doTERRA saved the best BOGO for last. This one sells out quickly, so be sure to order yours soon! Today only when you purchase a doTERRA Petal diffuser, you will receive Wild Orange and Cassia for free.

Petal Diffuser: This is a small diffuser that covers up to 330 square feet. You can choose to run it 1, 2, or 4 hours, and it offers an option light. It’s great to use in your home or office. I’ve had my Petal diffuser for almost 4 years and it’s still running great!

Cassia: This is an essential oil that supports your digestive system and your immune system. It has a warm and spicy smell very similar to cinnamon. It can be used topically, aromatically, or internally, but keep in mind you should dilute this oil, as it is a hot oil. You can also use this oil to support a healthy metabolism. Try diluting it with Wild Orange to get your home smelling like Christmas.

Wild Orange: This essential oil is one of doTERRA’s best sellers, for good reason. The aroma of this oil is very uplifting, and when combined with Peppermint can keep you motivated and focused. You can use it internally as a gentle cleanse or for digestive support. You can also use this oil topically (but avoid direct sunlight, as it is photosensitive) for a calming and cheerful mood.

Order while you can at mydoterra.com/amandagerber because these will sell out!

doTERRA OnGuard is a proprietary blend that contains Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary essential oil. OnGuard is designed to support your immune system. This was actually the first oil I got introduced to, and I’ve been hooked every since. You can use this oil topically, aromatically, and internally. (Side note: doTERRA is the only brand of essential oil I would trust enough to use on my kids, and I advice everyone to do your research when purchasing essential oils.) I personally used this blend when I had a sore and scratchy throat. I rubbed the oil along my throat, massaging my lymph nodes, and I also used 1 drop of OnGuard in hot water with honey and drank it like a tea. I was amazed at the results I had, that I ended up buying an entire enrollment kit that month.

I enjoy using OnGuard daily on my entire family to help support our immune system, especially during the winter months. For my children (5 years old and under) I dilute this oil with doTERRA’s Fractionated Coconut Oil because it is a hot oil, and can be too warm when applied directly on children. We also have it in a spray bottle with water, and we use it as a natural hand cleanser every day. We use it to clean our homes too! I love that I’ve been able to eliminate traditional (and toxic) household cleaners and hand cleansers.

Now, Lavender essential oil is an amazing oil to have in your home. Lavender can be used aromatically, topically, and internally. Many of us are familiar with the traditional use of lavender for sleep and relaxation. While this is true, it also has so many other uses as well. You can use this oil to help reduce skin irritations, and it’s amazing when paired with melaleuca for these purposes. We have an “Owie Spray” in our home that we’ve used for bee stings, ant bites, stinging nettles, and rashes.

Lavender can also be used to soothe sore muscles. I like to pair it with peppermint before and after a workout, and it really helps with the post workout soreness. We love using this oil in our homes, and my kids have been known to ask for “the purple oil” whenever they get a boo-boo.

Are you interested in purchasing today’s BOGO? I would love to help you get started using these oils. I provide my team with additional education once you’ve received the oils, and I make myself available to when you need additional support. I’d be honored to help you on your journey towards natural solutions for your health. Happy Monday!
