Frankincense Oil: The King of All Essential Oils?

Jordan: Do you love essential oils? Well, today on Ancient Medicine I’m going
to share with you about the essential oil you can’t live without, and it’s called
frankincense. I’m Jordan Rubin, CEO of draxe.com, where
we believe that food is medicine. We’ve all heard of frankincense, right? Think wise men, baby Jesus, burning incense,
which is really frankincense, but I bet you didn’t realize how versatile and important
frankincense is. Bottom line, folks, if you’re just watching
this, I think you need to already go ahead and share this, get people on this broadcast,
because I believe many of the challenges you deal with every day could be remedied by frankincense. And I know for me, I wouldn’t want to live
without it. Let’s get started. What is frankincense? It’s the resin of the Boswellia carterii,
or sacra tree. Boswellia is a resin, so not necessarily like
a syrup, but resin goopy stuff that they find on trees, primarily in the Middle East. Somalia is a place where it grows. It’s also grown in Jordan, in Egypt, and it
was talked about quite a bit in the texts of the Middle East, mentioned dozens of times
in the Bible. Sometimes referred to as olibanum, incense,
and definitely frankincense, it is known as the king of the oils. If you search “essential oils,” frankincense
will undoubtedly come up, and for good reason. Why would you use this beautiful golden resin
in the form of essential oil? I’m glad you asked. Frankincense oil has a myriad of health benefits. Combats negative emotions and stress. This can be accomplished by pouring some drops
of frankincense oil in your hand, breathing in. You can just breathe in right out of the bottle. You can also diffuse it in a diffuser, commonly
available at health food stores or better sort of body type stores. A diffuser helps you breathe in, inhale the
benefits of frankincense all day long. I even diffuse frankincense at night while
I sleep. It’s a powerful emotional booster, stress
reducer. Antitumor properties. Frankincense, with its various compounds,
including alpha-pinene, is being studied consistently for its ability to fight cancer. We’ve seen in vitro and animal studies attesting
to that. Frankincense oil should be part of a cancer-fighting
protocol along with working with your doctor. It’s a really powerful promoter and supporter
of the immune system. And speaking of which, supports immunity and
dental health. Frankincense oil is great added to your toothpaste. What I do is I will use an organic or natural
toothpaste, sometimes I’ll just use coconut oil, and I will add essential oils to it such
as frankincense. I also do something called oil pulling or
use a mouthwash, adding a drop of frankincense to that. Absolutely amazing, great for immunity and
dental health. Heightens spiritual awareness. If you are praying or meditating, breathing
in frankincense has been known and shown to benefit your experience. Promotes anti-aging. I’ve heard and I can soon attest that frankincense
is great applied directly to wrinkles or age spots. This is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. That’s right, folks. If you’re watching Ancient Medicine Today
and you know people that want to age more slowly, fight the effects of aging, send this
video to them right now, because they need to realize that frankincense oil might be
the most valuable health tool in their herbal or medicine cabinet. Healthy hormone promoter. Boswellia or frankincense can balance hormones
in both men and women. Digestion improver. I consume frankincense orally. If you have a frankincense oil that’s labeled
as a dietary supplement, particularly one that’s organic, you can take one to three
drops up to three times a day. It is powerful for your digestion, and some
of its compounds are clinically studied to support joint health and pain. Frankincense topically and orally is great
for pain. If you have injured joints, ligaments, or
tendons, or sore muscles, apply frankincense by itself, mixed with a carrier oil, or in
a blend of oils. Truly, truly awesome. There are six ways to use frankincense oil,
and we’re going to talk about them right now. Number one, it’s a powerful addition to cancer-fighting
protocols. Whether you’re treating cancer with conventional
medicine, integrative medicine, food, or a combo of all of them, use frankincense oil
along with your other therapies to either help with side effects and/or boost your results. Stress-relieving bath. Take salts, take clay, or just water and pour
three to six drops of frankincense oil in that bath to inhale and absorb through your
skin these powerful compounds. Anti-aging, anti-acne. You can make your own lotion. In fact, if you go to draxe.com or check out
our Facebook page, you can find great do-it-yourself recipes involving frankincense as a powerful
anti-aging and anti-acne lotion. By the way, folks, you might know that some
of these lotions are about a half ounce that are sixty bucks, make your own with a few
drops of frankincense. You will love it. It will be powerful. Number four, pain reliever. Topically or orally, frankincense is great
for joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, headaches, you name it, it’s a great pain reliever and
it’s natural. Brain booster. Frankincense will help you power your mind. You can do that through inhalation, through
oral use, or even topically on your neck, your temples, and other areas. Definitely a great way to boost your brain
power. And a stretch mark stopper. Right away, when you notice stretch marks,
start applying frankincense, either mixed with another oil . . . coconut, jojoba, almond
oil, avocado, etc. Put it right on those stretch marks. Just be consistent, folks. Stretch marks and age spots don’t go away
quickly, so be consistent. Do it every day and I think you’ll see great
results. By the way, folks, if you’re looking at these
benefits and saying, “I know people battling cancer, I know people in pain, I know people
that want to boost their brain, anti-age, stop stretch marks,” guess what? Share the video. Be a health hero to someone that you love,
because frankincense can be used in so many ways. It’s versatile, it’s powerful, and it’s awesomely
historic. That’s kind of cool, awesomely historic. Anyway, precautions. Frankincense does have blood-thinning effects,
so if you’re on blood-thinning medications, check with your practitioner if you can use
frankincense. And if you have problems, clotting, which
is kind of the same thing, you also want to be careful with frankincense, both topically
and orally. Folks, why should you use frankincense every
day? Why is this the number one essential oil that
you should never be without? Number one, combats negative emotions and
stress. Hello, who doesn’t need that? Antitumor properties. One out of 2.5 people will be diagnosed with
cancer in their lifetime. You must have frankincense as part of your
arsenal. Immune support and dental health. Swish with it, use it to boost the immune
system in your mouth. By the way, I believe dental issues are at
an all-time high. Get those fixed. Frankincense can help. Heightens spiritual awareness. If you pray, if you meditate, if you want
to get into a deep state of spiritual enlightenment, use frankincense. The Bible talks about burning incense to the
Lord, anointing yourself or certain sacred articles were done with frankincense. Anti-aging, age spots, wrinkles, put frankincense
right on there. Healthy hormones for men and women. Digestion improvement, and pain relief. Folks, I don’t know about you, but I’m sold. In fact, I’ve been sold. I use frankincense every day. I believe you should, too. And on Ancient Medicine Today, we want to
teach you how to use ancient medicines for your modern health. So whether you’re in pain, whether you’re
battling a health challenge, maybe you want to maintain the great health you already have,
or stop aging in its tracks, I recommend frankincense each and every day and I think you should,
too. So share this video with others. Check out our website, draxe.com, where we
