WTF: What the Frank!

Frankincense, King of Oils!

Read below to know why I adore this oil.

Sourcing of Frank

Here’s (watch this animated video ) what you’re supporting when you purchase Frankincense: growers from impoverished regions in Somalia that are deeply committed to harvesting their Boswellia (Frankincense) trees, and who are now paid well for their Frankincense resin. If you’re interested in learning more, here’s a more in-depth version. It blows my mind that every time I open my bottle of Frankincense, I’m receiving a gift from these individuals who have put their labor and love into harvesting and caring for the trees, sorting the resin, and distilling the oil. In a world in which we’re often so far removed from the land and the origin of the products we consume day-to-day, it’s really a blessing to be connected in this very special way to both the earth and the people caring for it.

Frankincense: The Oil of Truth

“Frankincense reveals deceptions and false truths. It invites individuals to let go of lower vibrations, lies, deceptions and negativity. This oil helps to create new perspectives based on light and truth. Frankincense recalls to memory spiritual understanding, gifts, wisdom and knowledge the soul brought into the world. It assists in pulling the “scales of darkness” from the eyes, the barriers from the mind and the walls from the heart. Through connecting the soul with its inner light, this oil reveals the truth. Enhancing practices of prayer and meditation, this oil opens spiritual channels that allow an individual to connect to the divine.”

I also love this ode to Frankincense that Tara Bliss wrote:

“Dear Frankie,
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you for loving our brains so damn much.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you for oxygenating our cells and dancing past that cell membrane like it ain’t no one’s business to bring healing, protection and MAGIC.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you for being the best thing that has ever happened to my skin. I never thought I would look in the mirror and see ‘radiance’. You have gifted me that.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you for providing immune support to people that I love. People who need you. People who are in treatment.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you for helping me to feel safe, held and cherished by the sacred masculine. When I breathe you in, I feel wiser, more content, sturdy.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you for unwinding my nervous system like an absolute boss.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you for helping me drop deeper into my meditations. I’m not going to pretend like I know why or how that happens, only that it does. You are the homeboy of my higher chakras.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you for being such a rockstar base note in any blend that contains citrus and floral notes. I mean seriously? That thing you do – when you elevate other aromatic compounds with your presence – how do you do that?!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Most importantly Frankie, thank you for revealing your superpowers in the data, in the science, in the peer-reviewed studies. doTERRA has played a huge role in taking you out of the ‘healers’ niche and into the mainstream so that now, you can shine your healing light even brighter.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am PROUD to use you, teach you, and sing your praises.”
