Frankincense oil (boswellia serrata) has for centuries been held in high esteem among
various civilizations to treat a wide variety of ailments. Today, it is currently being studied
for its potential to assist in the treatment of many cancers, and there are high hopes for its
potential to treat cancer on a much-needed non-toxic level.
International laboratory research on human cells has demonstrated that frankincense oil
has the ability to stop the spread of cancerous cells without harming healthy cells. The agent
within the oil that makes this possible further causes the corrupted cancerous cells to shut
down, but the specifics of this agent are still unknown and it is currently under further
examination. If frankincense oil is eventually developed as a formal cancer treatment, this
could provide a fantastic non-toxic alternative to chemotherapy.
Frankincense oil has immune-stimulating and potentially cancer-fighting properties
that make it a great oil to use in cancer treatment. As of now, it is most commonly used
to supplement traditional chemotherapy and radiation-based cancer treatments, but an
addition of a frankincense oil regimen could also aid in protection against cancer as well.
For best use topically, use one part frankincense with one part carrier oil (such as jojoba,
almond or coconut) and apply directly to the skin.
Use the diluted oil solution on pressure points (the inside of the wrist, the neck, on each
temple, between the toes, and on the inside of the ankle). Repeat several times a day.
For skin cancer treatment, apply a few drops directly to the affected area 1-2 times a day.
Place a few drops down the back of the neck and down the spine. Massage into each
Add 5-10 drops to a warm bath and soak for 10-20 minutes. This allows for the entire body
to absorb the healing properties of frankincense oil.
Take 1-3 drops under the tongue or in a glass of water daily.
