Day 3: The King of Oils, Frankincense

Welcome Back! If you’re just joining us, it’s Day 3 in our Getting to know your New Premium Starter Kit Challenge. 

Today we are highlighting the King of essential oils, Frankincense (Boswellia carterii).

Frankincense essential oil includes the naturally occurring constituent boswellic acid, and has a woodsy, warm, balsamic aroma. Diffuse Frankincense during meditation for grounding and purpose. Applying this oil topically may help smooth the appearance of healthy-looking skin, and is excellent to use for massage after activity.

Product Tips

  • Inhale frankincense essential oil after lunch to spiritually refocus.
  • Rub frankincense essential oil on the bottom of your feet to help alleviate nervous energy.

I always love sharing this picture of my oldest son, inhaling his oils. A drop in the hands, rubbed together – with nice deep, belly breaths. Just enjoy this oil – every part of it. It’s amazing.


On Young Living’s website, Frankincense is also listed as a product that can be used to refine your skin. See a list of targeted support below.

Purge chemicals from your beauty routine and rediscover your natural glow. An ancient skin care secret, essential oils can help promote a clear-looking complexion, soften the appearance of signs of aging, and nurture healthy-looking hair. Using only natural ingredients, these advanced skin and hair care solutions make it easy to enjoy the beautiful benefits of essential oils every day.

Day 2: Lavender Essential Oil

Welcome to Day 2 in our Getting to know your New Premium Starter Kit Challenge.

Today we are highlighting one of my favorite essential oils, Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia).

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) has a sweet, floral aroma that is soothing and refreshing. Lavender’s aroma is great for relaxing and winding down before bedtime; add to bath or diffuse to create a calming and comforting environment. Lavender essential oil may compliment your favorite shampoos, lotions and skin care products. Because it is the most versatile of all essential oils, no home should be without it.

Lavender Essential Oil YLEO


In addition to the above, here are a few more ways I use lavender essential oil everyday.

1. Hand, face & body cream: Add a few drops to your favorite brand of lotion, or make your own cream using 1/2 cup Cold Pressed Organic, Coconut Oil, 1/8tsp Argon Oil, and 5-7 drops of Lavender. A little goes a LONG way, so keep that in mind when using Coconut Oil as a carrier base with any oil.

Tip: Oil removes oil. If you ever get essential oils in your eyes, use grapeseed or coconut oil to wash out).

2. Homemade Laundry Soap.
Click here for my GO TO Recipe! I cannot stop singing the praises of this formula. Even my husband is on board. Plus, in his words, “We’re saving so much, compared to what we used to spend”. My first batch was finally getting low, so I just re-made it with around 1mo to spare. So I was right on with my 10-12mo estimate, even with two growing boys in the house!
