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…

As salamu alaykum To The Struggling Wife

As salamu alaykum to The Struggling wife....





You are the heart of the home. You are his support, his cheerleader, and he needs you to be by his side. Do you know how important you are to him and to your home?

You are worth more than you know. It may not be said often, but without you... Life would be a little more difficult.

I know you're struggling right now to be a better wife and I know you want to do better. Don't put too much pressure on yourself.

Keep asking Allah to guide you in becoming a better wife. Realize that you have a lot of worth and your husband knows it, he married you, he knew you were the woman who could make his life better.

Write down what you can do to make your marriage better and focus on that daily. He put you with this man, that you love, that you decided to marry. You made a commitment, and you said "I am his committed helper." so keep going! Yes it's not always easy, sometimes you want to leave... But you are a strong, praying woman. …

Remember Who Your Husband Is

On the eve of our 9th year anniversary, I'm doing a lot of reflecting. I saw a blog post entitled "Remember Who Your Husband Is." and the title stood out to me but in a different way so I decided to write my own post. I'm reflecting on nine years of marriage and who my husband is.

So who is he?

Lets remember ..

He is a gift from Allah.

Allah blessed me with him and it is my great honor to take care of my gift.
He is not to be abused, mistreated, and taken for granted. Allah has put us together and  for that I'm thankful Alhamdulilah. I'm here to assist him in the best way possible. Allah did not burden me with him, He did not curse me, but what He did do is bless me Alhamdulilah! When you know you are blessed you show gratitude!

He is the leader of our home.

Not only did Allah send me this gift. He also put me under his leadership. In remembering who he is, we must remember and respect his position of leadership. We should always pray that Allah is constantl…
