Frankincense essential oil has a long and regal history that dates back centuries. 

According to the bible it is a holy oil, the baby Jesus was given three gifts: gold, frankincense and myrrh by the three wise men. Today recent research is revealing the true power of this original Christmas present. Frankincense oil has the incredible ability to heal scars, stretch marks and even eliminate wrinkles. From cell regeneration to reducing age spots and healing wounds its healing ability is unrivalled.

Today this wonder oil is used in famous and expensive beauty products all the time to help heal skin, making it look flawless and beautiful. But trust me, you don’t have to spend a fortune on these big brand products to take advantage of the Frankincense magic. Personally I buy my own pure organic Frankincense essential oil and make my own beauty products at very reasonable cost, and best of all I can make extra for my friends and family!

Frankincense oil has cytophylactic qualities, which means it naturally helps stimulate skin cell regeneration. You can use it to make your own healing cream, apply and use to visibly reduce wrinkles, stretch marks, and scars. Here’s a recipe for a healing cream that I find absolutely luxurious and which will also make an awesome homemade Christmas gift for someone really special.

Frankincense blends well with other essential oils (like Lavender for example) so go ahead and add a few drops of your favorite if you feel like it. In a double boiler melt 1 cup shea butter and ½ cup organic coconut oil. 1. Once melted take the mixture off the heat and let it come to room temperature. 2. Add ¼ cup of almond oil, ½ teaspoon Vitamin E oil ( you can buy vitamin E capsules that you can open and get the oil from) and 40 drops of Frankincense essential oil. 3. Transfer the mixture to an electric mixer bowl. 4. Whisk until it is thickened. 5. Store in a mason jar with a tight lid or even squirt bottle. Decorate with a label, a sticker or a ribbon if you plan to give away as a gift.

Another easy recipe that you can make at home is a Frankincense sugar scrub. Sugar scrubs can be used on your hands and on your entire body. They are fantastic at exfoliating your skin to eliminate dead skin cells and will leave it looking beautiful and feeling silky smooth. Make this sugar scrub by following the steps below: 1. Mix 1 cup of sugar with 1/8 - 1/4 cup of virgin olive oil or organic coconut oil. You need to get enough oil to make a good consistency, but you don’t want it too oily. 2. Mix in 5 drops of frankincense essential oil. 3. Store in an air tight container. Friends and family will be amazed at such a personal gift, and you can make several batches.

And here’s an idea...if you truly want to of fer something similar to the gift given that first Christmas night, purchase some myrrh essential oil and make one of the above beauty products using myrrh. Package the gifts in some gold paper, or add a little chocolate wrapped in golden foil. Frankincense, myrrh and gold. That will be sure to bring the spirit of Christmas to your own home, heart and to everyone that you give it to.

Have a wonderful fun-filled festive season!

"Good value. I use the Lavender oil at my office with reeds to create a lovely smelling work space, instead of those nasty "fragrance oil plug-ins" that can be loaded with hundreds of toxic chemicals. Co-workers like to come into my closed space because of how it smells."
