Since ancient times, Frankincense was so deeply valued that it was considered one of the best gifts to present to baby Jesus. Known for its healing properties, it was used as a remedy for nearly everything, from a cough to treating leprosy.
Frankincense is extracted from the Boswellia plant. Its powerful anti-inflammatory and immune boosting properties provide many health benefits.
It’s not just a headache, it’s a severe throb in your head that lasts for hours, maybe days. The blood vessels swell in the brain causing to inflammation and pain, and in some cases nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Frankincense oil improves the immune system and regulates white blood cells to combat and protect against damage to molecules, genes, and proteins. The anti-inflammatory decreases the intensity and frequency of migraines, and reduces the swelling of blood vessels.
Rub two drops of oil on the roof of your mouth, on the back of your neck, or rub it on the temples of your head.
Depression and Anxiety
Many people with anxiety develop depression and vice versa. They experience tension, restlessness, worry, and fear. This constant distress is debilitating and in severe cases, leads to suicidal tendencies.
Frankincense oil helps by easing the nerves and quieting the mind. People who used it regularly reported positive benefits to their general sense of well-being. Frankincense oil promotes relaxation and deep breathing by opening air passages and reducing blood pressure.
Inhalation of the smoke is most effective in treating anxiety and depression. Place the Frankincense oil on hot coals. The smoke produced contains neuro-active components that stimulate receptors and increases oxygen to the glands in the brain. Do not inhale the smoke directly; place it in a room around you.
Research has proven Frankincense’s potent abilities in the treatment of certain cancers.
In one medical study, a woman had breast cancer that caused brain tumors to develop and she was given three to five months to live. After receiving Frankincense oil consistently for ten weeks, her brain tumors disappeared and other studies showed the positive reduction on pancreatic tumors and suppressed the growth of secondary tumors.
In all cases, it is important to seek professional medical advice for any diagnosis and treatment.
