3. Fights Cancer
There have been several studies and research groups which have identified that frankincense essential oil has the potential to bring about reductions in the size of tumors, largely on account of its potent anti-inflammatory qualities.
The oil has been shown by further studies to be capable of actually fighting certain types of cancer cells too, making it an exciting prospect for cancer patients and researchers alike.
Interestingly, the cancer-fighting qualities of frankincense are amplified when it is combined with myrrh. Perhaps those three wise men really knew what they were talking about, leading one to believe that the use of essential oils in the treatment of cancer could be worth its weight in, yes you guessed it, the third gift brought to the baby Jesus, lovely and shiny gold.
The development of natural cancer treatments is gaining speed, with many people looking to the world of plants and oils as a way of steering clear of the unpleasant world of chemotherapy.
