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 !!!

The Passing Of A Prince

One month later...  If you would have told me, that I would be eventually blogging as a widow, I would have probably said that I couldn't imagine it!

Well here I am, writing as a widow. My husband (may Allah have mercy on him, and grant him jannah ameen ameen) passed away last month, December 20th, 2016, from complications from his condition.  My whole life changed and I am learning to heal and process this tremendous loss with our six children.

I met my husband in 2006 mashaAllah, and as I like to tell people, I started this adventure 10 yrs ago when I met a Prince from Kings County (Brooklyn NYC) married him, and became his princess alhamdulilah. When we first met, I felt like "wow this handsome guy, I cant believe he is even giving me the time of day." Lord knows I am thankful for all the time of our days, our road trips, and adventures.

I think of an old status message I shared on facebook
" I've dedicated ten years of my heart to this loveable adventurous g…

5 Ways To Love Your Husband MORE

I had to blow the dust off the blog tonight, as I only write when I am feeling inspired. SubhanAllah, tonight feels like a good night to share a few thoughts on the blog.
How can you, love your husband more?


1.) Speak words that will uplift his spirit. I remember when I would be feeling nervous, and anxious about some event, and my husband (may Allah have mercy on him, ameen) would say encouraging words, that made me feel like the most confident woman in the world. We have the ability to be that voice of encouragement in our mates lives. What mountains we cannot move, when our spouse speaks life into our being! Through out the day, speak to your mate in a way that will help them be better. 
2.) Put your love into action: Yes you can say "I love you" all day long, but adding to that by doing loving gestures, show and prove what we feel inside. Surprising our spouse by writing a love note, or sending a loving text, adds a little more joy to their days. In a world where there …

5 Ways To Love Yourself MORE

Yep, there I am, jumping on the trampoline in my sisters yard yesterday. As I told a friend, you can't help but smile on a trampoline. I couldn't jump and be angry, or feel sad at the same time. 
Alhamdulilah I felt like reaching for the sky, free, and alive. I haven't felt that way since my husband passed away last month (December 20th, 2016). Life has not been the same. Yesterday I decided to get some fresh air and I felt good. It was nice to step outside for a little bit.
My last post was written on loving your husband's more, which can also be applied to wives. Our time here isn't long, and in losing my husband, I am extra reminded to encourage wives to love their husbands more. That has always been part of my blog's goal, but God is telling me to remind women more, through my own experience.

But in loving your husbands more, do not forget yourself. You are important. Yes, some women need to be reminded that they are important. You have to take care of you…
