25 Days of Christmas: Day Eight

It is no surprise that precious Frankincense (Boswellia carterii) has been much sought after since ancient times. In the Bible, it was one of the oils/resins given as a gift to the baby Jesus by the Three Wisemen from the East, in the nativity story. The complex aroma of this oil can elevate many aspects of your life. Diffuse Young Living Frankincense essential oil to refine your sense of purpose, or add it to your beauty routine for a luxurious experience.

Frankincense essential oil has an earthy, uplifting aroma that’s perfect for grounding and spiritual connectedness. Create a safe and comforting environment when you diffuse or inhale this empowering oil—a perfect opportunity to collect your thoughts. When you seek purpose or engage in prayer or meditation, use this oil to enhance your experience. In addition to elevated spiritual experiences, the benefits of Frankincense essential oil include maintaining radiant skin.

Idaho Blue Spruce is an exclusive oil that is distilled at Young Living’s St. Maries farm. This remarkable essential oil contains high percentages of alpha-pinene and limonene and has a pleasing and relaxing evergreen aroma. It has an immediate grounding effect.  It is great for centering, calming and focusing.  If one can picture the full, majestic Spruce tree, a sense of rootedness and expansiveness occurs.  Once feeling grounded, we can feel more connected to our breath, opening and expanding on many levels. 

Spruce Essential Oil is distilled from the needles of the tree, which provide respiration for the whole tree.  No wonder Spruce essential oil allows us to feel more connected…to the earth and to the breath. This essential oil is wonderful when working with the root (1st chakra) and heart (4th chakra).  It  assists us in working with our shadow side thus allowing a higher vibration to occur.

Spruce Essential Oil allows us to recall memories.  The oil has a way of connecting us not just to the earth and breath, but to ourselves as well, reminding us of memories from days gone by.  We have found that when we are connected deeply to the earth that we can then open up to our higher selves. When we can feel more comfortable and grounded in our physical bodies, all things are possible!

Spruce Essential Oil has always been one of the essential oils that we reach for time and again especially when dealing with any muscular issues.  It has a way of penetrating deeply, yet gently, thus allowing the muscles to relax and be soothed. It has also been used to effectively stimulate healthy testosterone levels in men. This article by Dr Mercola also outlines some of the other benefits of Spruce essential oil.

Add a dash of Cinnamon Bark to this mix, and you have a lovely, grounding, woodsy, spicy scent, that can help to elevate your mood, ground you to the earth, and provide a sense of spiritual connection throughout your day.
