Essential Oil of Frankincense is my feature oil for this month of January when we are focusing on cultivating stillness. Many of us are familiar with frankincense and it’s friend myrrh, as they were introduced to us as children as the gifts (along with gold) that were brought to the baby Jesus. Frankincense is, in fact, mentioned many times in the Bible and is used frequently to this day in religious ceremonies around the world.
Energetically, frankincense works not only to ground us, but to connect us to our spiritual selves. It’s resinous nature and woody, earthy scent roots us when we’re feeling flighty or anxious. It also brings clarity to a busy and worried mind. There are many other beautiful ways to use frankincense to bring balance to the physical body, but for this month’s purpose consider using this rich oil in your meditation, prayer, or yoga practice. It blends beautifully with flower oils to open the heart as you connect to your deeper self.
