Frankincense Essential Oil Can Combat Tumors
Written by: Brandi Monasco
You probably know of frankincense from the Bible story of the Nativity. Frankincense was one of the gifts that the three wise men came bearing for baby Jesus.
What you probably didn’t know is that frankincense has been used for thousands of years in many cultures. It is believed that when frankincense is dried (from the sap of the Boswellia tree), it has many medicinal properties.
Medicinal Benefits Of Frankincense
Frankincense is known for its sweet aroma and contains properties that can be beneficial for your overall health. The oil is made up of chemicals that are called terpenes, which give frankincense its medicinal properties; one of which is medicinal benefits for your brain.
Frankincense helps in oxygenating your blood, providing the brain with more oxygen and allowing for any damage or trauma to rapidly recover. The oil also gives your pituitary glands – which are the “controllers” of your brain – added oxygen that can help boost your memory.
Frankincense oil is also good for your emotional health and wellbeing. The oil contains chemicals that that calm your emotions as well as your senses. The oil also acts as an antidepressant and provides you relief from anxiety. Using frankincense in combination with other essential oils can even help you in combating panic attacks as well.
Frankincense oil also contains a chemical called keto-boswellic acid, or AKBA. This chemical is known for its cancer fighting and brain protecting properties. It contains a neuroprotective property, meaning that the chemical found in frankincense oil protects the preservation of the neuronal structure and functions. The oil also helps in relieving headaches, blurry eyesight and migraines that could be caused by the brain tumor.
How To Use Frankincense
Frankincense oil is easy to use and there are a variety of ways that you can use it. You can use it with a diffuser, or you can directly sniff the oil from the bottle. It can also be applied to specific areas of your skin topically, after it has been diluted (coconut oil works great). When the oil is inhaled, the oil stimulates the tiny nerves that are found in your nose that send signals to certain areas of your brain, working different systems to bring about its effects.
Whichever way you choose to use the oil, you should always make sure that the purity of the oil is 100%. Any contaminants or toxins will not only decrease the effectiveness of the aromatic oil, but could also harm the delicate tissues of your brain.
