If you wish to incorporate frankincense as a regular natural health booster, it can be taken as an undiluted essential oil on the skin or as a few drops under the tongue. It can also be diffused and breathed in for respiratory conditions. Frankincense can also be purchased and consumed in powdered capsule form.
For ingestion be sure to purchase pure therapeutic ‘food-grade’ oils.
Frankincense has been demonstrated to improve eyesight, helichrysum oil improves vision and supports nerve tissue and cypress essential oil improve circulation which can improve glaucoma. Apply 3 drops of any of these essential oils 2x daily on cheeks and lateral eye area but do not put directly into eyes.
There are numerous species of frankincense, including Boswellia carteri, B. serrata and B. sacra. All three of these species have shown powerful anti-cancer effects in scientific tests.
B. carteri, native to east Africa, has been the species most heavily studied. B. sacra, also known as “sacred frankincense,” was until recently restricted to use by the Saudi royal household, and could only be purchased in Oman. Recently, however, a distillery opened up in Oman to produce essential oil of B. sacra for public sale.
