I was maybe 8 years old the first time that I heard the word Frankincense. Yes, it was during Christmas. If you have attended one or more Christmas Padgents you to have heard of Frankincense, Myrrh, and Gold.
I have recently learned more about what Frankincense is. It is made from the resin of the Boswellia Tree grown in Africa and in the Middle East.
Frankincense Oil is most often used topically or in aromatherapy methods. A few benefits of using this oil are:
- as an anti-inflammatory
- to help gut function
- to help with asthma
- can help fight certain types of cancers
I use Frankincense Oil daily with my vitamin regiment. As always check with your doctor before trying new things and do a little research on your own. There is a lot of useful information today on the use of essential oils.
