So it appears that the three wise men were wise indeed seeing as they gave frankincense to Jesus on his birth. In biblical times frankincense was used to treat rheumatoid arthritis. If you burn or diffuse frankincense oil when you are in physical pain you will notice this pain significantly drop! This is because it regulates inflammation so I highly recommended it for autoimmune disorders and ailments causing acute or chronic pain. It also helps calm and relax the mind so can help combat stress and anxiety. Numerous studies have shown that frankincense has the ability to kill cancer cells, specifically breast and other tumours. Frankincense essential oil is also used to treat issues relating to digestion, the immune system, oral health and respiratory problems. My favourite use of frankincense oil is to add it to my moisturiser. It eases my muscles and has anti-aging properties which are both necessary at my age!
