FRANKINCENSE & EMOTIONS (Info adapted from Eryn Jones) Frankincense is helpful for releasing feelings of anger, entanglement, and abandonment. This sentiment in feeling form can mean you feel so dependent on or entangled with someone else's opinion or thoughts about you that anything they do makes you angry and triggered. In Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils, Dr. Mein says that the alarm point for this is the "ego- point", which is the center of your chest.
If a particular relationship is extra hard, the way out of it is to Surrender and Detach, standing in your own power and security. Frankincense can help you get there!
Here's how to use it for releasing stuck emotions related to this:
