Benefits of Frankincense:
The properties in this oil are antitumoral, immune-stimulant, antidepressant, muscle relaxing, plus has been known to aid the body in its own personal ability to heal.
Frankincense is considered the 'holy anointing oil' in the Middle East and has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years. It was one of the oils given to Christ by the 'Wise Men' after His birth. It has been used to treat every conceivable illness know to man and was valued more than gold during ancient times. Only people with great wealth could afford it.
My family likes to use this oil full strength (although you can dilute to stretch the oil if needed, or when using as a massage). We use directly on location of the issue, diffuse or inhale. Frankincense enhances and deepens the ability of other oils, so can be added over another oil (like peppermint) to drive it deeper into the body's tissue. Be careful, it will REALLY drive it deeper!
At first I was unsure how to use this oil since I didn't have any tumors or cancer, and wasn't depressed, but I soon learned that it is used for EVERYTHING. My new born baby was born toward the end of cold season and was beginning to get congested in her eyes and nose. It is scary for a new mom to have a new baby that is getting sick. I began praying and applying frankincense directly to the bridge of her nose and eyebrows (keeping away from the eyes) about every 3 hours, and in 24 hours she was completely decongested! Plus, the smell and mildness of the oil seemed to calm her and her paranoid Momma!
At one time in my life I kept getting canker sores inside my mouth, and the lavender would ease the pain and they would go away within 3 days (instead of lasting their normal 7-10 days). This was good, but they kept coming back in different places every few weeks. I decided to try frankincense before bed instead of lavender and not only was the canker sore GONE the next morning, but I haven't had another one in over 2 years!
At another time I kept getting a sty on my eye every few months that was very painful and would last a few weeks. I remembered how the frankincense had worked on my canker sore, and decided to apply it on the bridge of my nose and the bony part of my eye (upper cheek and eyebrow), keeping it away from the eye. The sty went away in 24 hours and again has never returned over a year later!
I met a lady that had been suffering from severe arthritis in her hands for years. It was so bad she could hardly write or open containers of any kind. She purchased the panaway and was delighted at how it was helping but asked me if there was anything else she could do. I told her that she could apply frankincense over the panawy, but to be sure to dilute the panaway because the frankincense would drive it deep into her wrists and hands. She decided NOT to dilute and said it burned like fire for about 20 minutes, but after that she was pain free for over 2 weeks! That became her routine every few weeks to enjoy pain free hands!
