Essential Oil Of The Week: Frankincense

Alhamdulilah I have been using essential oils for a short time, but alhamdulilah I was recently introduced to doTerra essential oils by two beautiful sisters.

Well once my family started to use them we have been enjoying them. SubhanAllah the smells are amazing plus the benefits! 

So why should you use frankinscense:

It is said to: Provides Upper Respiratory Relief. Frankincense oil can help reduce upper respiratory symptoms caused by the common cold and bronchitis. Its antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic properties help to relax breathing passages and boost the immune system. Add a few drops to a bath, facial steam tent, or use as a massage oil for soothing relief. In addition to relieving the symptoms of a cold, frankincense oil can be used to disinfect a room.  (always research and talk to your doctor)

I totally love frankincense, as my husband says its a God sent heavenly scent mashaAllah and it truly works. I have used it to help reduce upper respiratory symptoms. It worked quickly subhanAllah alhamdulilah I felt instant relief, what a blessing from Allah alhamdulilah! What a great way to kick off our essential oil of the week.

A hadith I've read:    
Prophet Muhammad salAllahu alayhi wa salam was reported to have said "Fumigate your houses with Lubaan (Frankincense) and Sa'atar (Thyme)" It was also reported that once a man complained to Ali radiAllahu anhu that he forgets and Ali's radiAllahu anhu response was, "Resort to the Lubaan (Frankincense), because it strengthens the heart and removes forgetfulness".


Are you ready to try frankincense essential oil in your home and on your body? Do you use it already? and if so, what do you use it for? You can make many things at home using frankincense:
Make an all purpose cleaner adding frankincense, and its a good addition to homemade toothpaste too

For coughs and breathing: Add a drop to steaming water, place a towel over your head and inhale until the steam stops. Also massage soles of the feet, I did this with the children and husband when they were not feeling well. Or rub very little behind the ears.

They say for balance, open the bottle and smell frankincense essential oil whenever you're feeling overwhelmed. Diffuse in the room if you have a diffuser



 You can order frankincense from: Our DoTerra Store

InshaAllah next week we will discuss
Melaleuca Essential Oil also known more as Tea Tree Oil !!!
