How I use it:
Honestly, Young Living's description is completely on point.
This oil is tremendous for me when I'm feeling completely out of tune and antsy. When my energy is wild, I feel ungrounded and a little lost, this gem gets me back. I take big whiffs from the bottle itself and I also diffuse it at night when I have had a bad day. This oil is expensive, so I'm mindful of when I use it. But those nights when I'm literally feeling unraveled, I call on my Frank and it always does the job. I also diffuse this a lot when I'm working. It helps me stay focused, within myself and grounded in my work and my goals.
This oil is also a go to for my beauty regimen. I use it with my jojoba oil every night to help fight those wrinkles as I enter my mid 30's ;)
Vertigo. Friends, I have vertigo. I had a really bad inner ear virus almost 2 years ago and it laid me out. I've never felt anything like it. Seriously friends, these symptoms describe my attack to a 't' and I still develop minor vertigo from time to time. When I'm stressed and my 3rd eye (aka my thoughts) don't stop, I can really feel it. Putting some frank behind my ears (and laying with amethyst on my 3rd eye) seriously help.
Wellness. I use this bad boy in our wellness roller, too. (Frank, Purification, Thieves)
It's a daily love affair with this amazing. oil.
Why I love it:
I love this oil because it's my safe place. And it gets rid of wrinkles. Like, for real. What's not to love about either of those things!
