Frankincense, (aka olibanum) an aromatic resin retrieved from the boswellia trees in India, has been highly revered since ancient times as a sacred medicine. As an incense, it was burned to ward off negative energy in temples, churches and used for sacred rituals. Modern research is discovering its anti-inflammatory and hepatoprotective properties to be beneficial in treating serious illnesses, including cancer! No wonder it has been called 'The Father of All Essential Oils'. Although our ORGANIC FRANKINCENSE ESSENTIAL OIL is of a pure therapeutic quality, we offer suggestions here for external use only.
