Sacred Frankincense – Young Living


What’s the difference between Frankincense (Boswelia Carteri) and Sacred Frankincense (Boswelia Sacra)?

Boswelia Sacra is a smaller molecule, so it more easily passes into your sinuses, while Boswelia Carteri is a much heavier molecule

Sacred Frankincense™ essential oil comes from the distillation of the resin of the Boswellia Sacra frankincense tree. This oil originates in Oman and is the first Omani frankincense to be available to those outside of Saudi Royals or wealthy individuals. Gary Young spent many years traveling to Oman to work with Omani officials to obtain a permit to export Sacred Frankincense for Young Living and also received permission to build and operate a Young Living distillery in the country. The Sultan himself had a DECADES-long relationship with Gary Young, and his Frankincense is the ONLY Omani Frankincense exported in the world- exclusively for Young Living. If any other company claims their oil is from Oman it’s simply NOT TRUE!!

Frankincense farms are family-owned businesses for generations. They are VERY careful with these trees- it is their livelihood for thousands of years and they need the trees for future generations. The trees grow in rocks & sand, which makes very poor soil. Gary Young tried to grow them in the US and they would not grow!

Frankincense resin is acquired by thinly slicing the tree bark and allowing the resin to drip out. Then the resin must “cure” in a cave for 3-6 months until it dries and is ground into a powder (powder in Slique tea) Israel (partner farm) by Dead Sea also has Sacred Frankincense. This is the first time ever these trees have been domesticated in Israel.

But as you know, the Middle East is UNSTABLE! So be sure to stock up on FRANK because you never know when it might not be available!!!


Sacred Frankincense is ideal for those who wish to take their spiritual journey and meditation experiences to a higher level. It has been shown to reduce brain “noise” while enhancing calmness, allowing the brain to better use its own abilities for learning and decision making. This oils is also said to help with aging, skin, respiratory support, mental fatigue, mood elevation, healthy blood pressure, healthy inflammatory responses, stress relief, and soothing the nerves.

Discover Your Purpose


If this isn’t what life’s journey is about, I don’t know what is.🤷🏻‍♀️

Nobody could have ever told me that I would be a stay-at-home military wife, homeschooling two boys. I wouldn’t have listened. 🙇🏻‍♀️

If someone had predicted that I would move 12 times in 15 years (twice overseas and twice into an RV) I would have laughed them out of the room! Not this girl! I had goals and aspirations- none of which was to stay at home wiping little noses, teaching abc’s and hanging broken picture frames in government-issued housing! 🙅🏻‍♀️

But God had different plans- and those plans come with twists and turns, mountains and huge valleys, trials and triumphs.🎢

If I’d had my dream career, I would have never spent four glorious years in Japan. 🇯🇵

I would never have discovered that simple living suits me far better than the palatial home of my dreams. 🚐

I would never have understood the richness of community, the depth of gratitude towards our service members, the appreciation of foreign cultures, the passion for travel… ✈️

Had I not married a Marine, I might never have loved as generously, lost as deeply, prayed as fervently as a military wife is known to do. 🙏🏻

If I’d had my dream career, I would have been too busy to savor the precious and fleeting moments of my children’s youth. If I’d had life my way, I would have missed so much of what really matters in life.
Through all this time, through all the hardships and sacrifice, through all the dreams and ambitions that have fallen by the wayside- I have not found myself.  Thank God- I have found who I was meant to be. And it’s something far better than anything I could have imagined.


Forward Motion


I’m one of those people who can’t sit and do “nothing.”

🙄Don’t take me to a beach and expect me to lay in the sun and relax. 🏖 I’ll be up and down a thousand times. I’ll be walking it’s length, picking up seashells, reorganizing the space under the umbrella… (true story)

🏰 Don’t take me to Europe and expect me to sit for hours in a cafe, when there are countless streets to walk, corners to turn, people to meet, pictures to take.

📲If you see me sitting on my phone, I’m not playing Candy Crush (is that still a thing?) I’m editing photos, movies, stories… making notes for future classes, planning, learning, DOING!

📚 I travel with books because I hate watching movies on the plane. There is always something more to read and learn!

💺And you don’t want to sit in the seat next to me because I’ll be wiggling and squirming like a four year old if my brain isn’t entertained!

👯‍♀️ That being said, I do waste plenty of time in my own way. I’m super social- I love my amazing friends and I love pouring time into relationship. I can chat over the fence for hours. Keep up a text thread like you wouldn’t believe. Lunch date? I’m IN! Let’s socialize!
As a blue and yellow personality, I find myself spinning in circles quite often. As a creative, my mind is always engaged in the next project (even if this one’s not finished!) As a mom, homeschooler, business owner, wife & teacher, my thoughts are constantly occupied. Don’t be surprised if you have to say my name several times before I hear you- and if the name you use is “Mom” you may need to also jump around and wave your arms
I’m a firm believer that the time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time, but there is a difference between being passive with your time and being actively engaged – It’s all about forward motion.

Are you growing that relationship?

Are you discussing new ideas?

Are you refining your gifts and talents?

Or are you sitting in one place?

👉 It doesn’t matter if you are career-minded or domestic, amateur or professional, high-energy or slow and methodical. Just. Keep. Moving. Forward.

There is infinitely more satisfaction in activity rather than passivity. So what are you waiting for?


Grab your En-R-Gee essential oil, your Motivation, or mix it up with Peppermint and Rosemary… these are very energizing, stimulating oils. Throw some in your diffuser! Apply it on the back of your neck, take a deep inhale from the bottle… and get moving!!!! You will be sooo glad you did!
