Frankincense and Myrrh oils are much more than just anointing oils. They help reduce inflammation, have significant proven cancer killing properties, boost immunity, help fight infection, help with anxiety and help heal the skin.
Frankincense specifically is used to support the immune system, fight infection and heal illness and as mentioned in the truth about cancer docu-series is used as an all natural treatment to cancer. I recommend to clients to use Frankincense on trouble areas directly on the skin; such as for cramps, aches and pains, liver/gallbladder pinching, thyroid issues and 1 drop on the roof of the mouth for brain issues. For internal use, always use a reputable source of essential oils such as these.
