FRANKINCENSE: KING OF THE OILS

  1. Isaiah prophesied the coming of the Wise Men; “6 Vast caravans of camels will converge on you, the camels of Midian and Ephah. The people of Sheba will bring gold and frankincense and will come worshiping the LORD.” (Isaiah 60:6).
  2. The gifts to baby Jesus in Matthew 2:11; “11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.”
  3. It is the required incense on a grain offering: “15 The priest on duty will take from the grain offering a handful of the choice flour moistened with olive oil, together with all the frankincense. He will burn this representative portion on the altar as a pleasing aroma to the LORD.”

No wonder Frankincense is called King of the Oils! Not only is the oil considered to be a pleasing aroma to the Lord and a gift to the baby Jesus, but it was used to anoint the newborn sons of kings! Its renowned nickname seems ironic now, doesn’t it? However, Frankincense is more than an oil used for grain offerings and anointing. Let’s take a look.

FRANKINCENSE USES AND BENEFITS

IT’S AN ASTRINGENT – Frankincense is an astringent property that can strengthen and maintain the health of gums, hair roots, skin tone, muscles, intestines, and blood vessels. This property alone can protect from premature loss of teeth and hair. It can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles and combat the loss of firmness in limbs associated with age. Apply to desired areas or take four drops via veggie capsule to optimize the benefits of this oil.

PROMOTES APOPTOSIS – According to a study conducted in 2016, Frankincense can promote healthy cell death—also known as apoptosis. This may reduce the risks of malignant growths or other unexpected mutations. Apply to affected areas and take four drops via veggie capsule to utilize Frankincense’s pro-apoptotic effects against cells.

KEEPS UTERUS HEALTHY – Another study conducted by Jane Buckle, ex-faculty at the University of Minnesota and author of Clinical Aromatherapy in Nursing, concluded that Frankincense is good for uterine health. Frankincense can regulate the production of the estrogen hormone, proper menstrual cycles, and other gynecologic conditions. Apply to affected areas and take four drops via veggie capsule to keep your reproductive and endocrine system healthy

What Is the Difference between Pink and White Grapefruit Essential Oil? 

White Grapefruit and Pink Grapefruit are simply different varieties of the same plant. The difference in name comes from the colors of the fruit, but they share similar chemistry and other characteristics. 

What Is Grapefruit Oil Used For? 

White Grapefruit essential oil can be used aromatically, topically, and internally. 

The deliciously citrus fresh scent is uplifting and can be used to create an environment of positivity and confidence. Diffuse White Grapefruit in the morning while you are preparing for the day or in the afternoon when you need some extra energy and support. Or put White Grapefruit on diffuser jewelry to carry the scent with you all day. Another way to use it aromatically is by making a natural room spray or air freshener.

The main chemical constituent in White Grapefruit is limonene, which means that the oil is highly cleansing and purifying. Use it as part of your cleaning regimen or put a few drops down your kitchen sink to keep it smelling fresh. 

Is it Safe to Drink Grapefruit Essential Oil? 

Another way to take advantage of Grapefruit’s cleansing properties is internally. Taken internally, White Grapefruit promotes gastrointestinal health and digestion.* It also helps support a healthy metabolism.* 

Add a few drops of Grapefruit oil to your water and enjoy the accompanying flavor or try adding it to a smoothie. You can also simply put a couple drops under the tongue or take it in a veggie capsule. 

Is Grapefruit Good for the Skin?

Another one of the benefits of Grapefruit’s cleansing and purifying properties is that they can be applied to the skin. Add a drop to your facial cleanser for a sweet scent and a purifying boost! Including Grapefruit as part of your evening skin care will reduce the appearance of blemishes and encourage a healthy-looking complexion. 

Because White Grapefruit is a citrus oil, it is photosensitive. This means that you should avoid UV rays for 12 hours after applying the oil topically. One easy way to do this is only use Grapefruit during your evening skin care routine.
