The human ability to recall something from our past (have a memory) in the short term is at about 1% when we touch things; 2% when we hear things; 5% when we see things; 15% when we taste things; and … drum roll! … 35% when we smell things.*
What this proves is simple: Our sense of smell is one of the most powerful things at our disposal as human beings. It’s why essential oils play such an important part in our daily lifestyle, why we gravitate to them when we want a sense of peace, calm, or happiness to supersede feelings of stress, sadness, or overwhelm.
Frankincense is a powerfully scented essential oil. More than most other scents, it is commonly referred to as rich, luxurious, and intense. The highest of royalty among essential oils. For centuries it has been used in sacred rites and ceremonies, and in bringing people closer to their faith. Having TLEO Frankincense at your disposal when you feel bad – or particularly when you are experiencing a loss, heartbreak, death of a loved one, or an overwhelming sense of spirit-breaking stress – can often be regarded as a blessing.
TLEO Frankincense can help you find your sense of quieted feelings when they threaten to overcome you. The scent can help strengthen your feelings of resolve in letting go of such negativity.
TLEO Frankincense Grief & Stress Diffusion
Add 6 drops TLEO Frankincense and 6-8 drops TLEO Serenity Blend to distilled water (or plain water) in the central well of your TLEO Aroma Diffuser. Diffuse and enjoy for the feelings of balance and blissful relinquishing of stress, sadness, grief, or loss.
TLEO Frankincense Say NO to Sadness
Add 8-10 drops TLEO Frankincense and 8-10 drops TLEO Orange to a TLEO Amber Roller Bottle. Fill the rest of the way with TLEO FCO.

Concentrate on achieving a sense of balance.
