F: The ABC's of Wellness
The letter of the day is “F". The Young Living wellness product of the day is “Frankincense".
how do I love thee? Let me count the ways!
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life
~ Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Do you think Elizabeth was talking about Frankincense? For those of you who love your YL Frankincense, you might be thinking “yes".
Young Living describes our Frankincense as: "The ancient Egyptians used the oil found in the wild-crafted resin of Boswellia carteri trees in Kenya to promote younger, fresher looking skin. Frankincense is also known for its sweet, warm, balsamic aroma with calming properties that can increase spirituality and inner strength."
I also want to note that Young Living does not harvest the resin of a tree every year as this kills the 1,000+ year old tree. As always, Young Living listens to and learns from the locals and from history, to work WITH nature and to be stewards of the land.
Tomorrow, oh gee, what letter will it be?
