Frankincense: The King of Essential Oils



For overall health and protection.

by Julianna Jewels Avelar

I started using Frankincense over a year ago when it was recommended for overall health and protection from seasonal ailments. I take two drops under my tongue every day and also apply it to any facial blemishes that I might have.

In addition to putting  “Frank” under my tongue, I also use it on top of my tongue when I have any type of head tension. The trick is to place it on top of your tongue and then press up towards the roof of your mouth. The oil immediately moves towards the tension and releases the pressure. I was absolutely shocked the first time that I tried this and how it actually worked!

Frankincense has many uses and can be taken internally, applied topically and used aromatically. For thousands of years, Frankincense resins have been harvested in Somalia from wild Boswellia trees like Carterii and Frereana. The taste is an acquired one if taking internally. I find it to be a little earthy and more on the pleasant side.

Frankincense is referred to in the oil community as the “King of Oils” but I like to say that it’s the Queens that make it so magical! doTERRA Frankincense is my oil of choice for many reasons, one being the way that they source their products and how they are empowering harvesters, farmers, distillers and women all over the World.

doTERRA’s Co-Impact Sourcing had a huge impact on why I chose to support them in my home, with my family and friends. I take applying and or ingesting any product very seriously. I know in my heart and through all of their work that the oils I am using are safe and packaged with love.

Co-Impact Sourcing info from doTERRA:

doTERRA is also working with our partners to ensure that the cleaning and sorting of the frankincense resins takes place as close to the harvesting locations as possible so that these important jobs (typically held by women) remain in rural areas where they are most needed and benefit the harvesting families. Our initiative also ensures that these women receive fair wages and that they are able to work in more favorable working conditions.

I would highly encourage you to watch this beautiful video on how and where Frank is sourced. You will then understand completely as to why I refer to the Queens, the Magic and the abundance of Love that is in each and every bottle.

I cannot image not having “Frank” or the Queens in my daily self-care regimen.

Definitely my #1 choice of oils!
