Frankincense Oil: The King of All Essential Oils?

Articles Blog


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

  2. I know how good frankincense is, I grow eight species of Boswellia, and consume the exude right from my trees. But keep in mind the three main species that produce boswellic acid are B. sacra/carteri, papyrifera, and serrata. But the other species do have benefits also.

  3. I had no idea! I have a bottle sitting in my medicine cabinet. It's been there for 3 years. I thought it was just used for meditation! Only used it once.

  10. Thanks for sharing this awesome information about frankincense. Where can I purchase frankincense and myrrh for myself? ❤️🌹❤️🙏🏾

  11. I don't know what language this video was in originally, but they did a fantastic job with the English dubbing.

  12. you said it can be applied directly to the Skin to get rid of wrinkles right? should it be diluted first or …….

  13. i am so happy to see you all and get your good advice….. LOVE YOU GUYS PLEASE KEEP UP AS YOU ARE NOW AND KEEP IT ALL THE TIME…..

  14. I refined (cleaned) about 2000 kilograms of frankincense at my job at doterra today. I was wondering what it was for, and now I know!

  15. I have these painful small bumps on my head that seem to also move a little causing more discomfort. I'm not going to say what my doctor says to do, or not to do but he says not to cut my hair for three months. It's been a year and the bumps have spread. So axes to that noise. I have to apply "Aspercreme" just to numb the pain away and keep them from moving. I'm trying frankincense from now on…

  16. Thanks for the information-your video for me is informative
    I found out that he is diluting the blood-I need it.
    I want to share my experience of using incense.
    Since childhood, I was a very painful person-the illnesses happened almost every month-a runny nose, sore throats, snot. Once every 3-5 months, severe pneumonia.
    Five years ago I became a believer – and gradually became acquainted with Frankincense.
    Several times a week I burn different Frankincense and Myrrh varieties in the house.
    For a year and three months I did not know any diseases)))))))))
    But still I managed to catch a very bad cold (((
    The disease lasted only the evening and two days. There was no cough-there was very little discharge from the nose.
    Never so quickly I did not get sick, in the past the illness would last 7-10 days and with complications.
    But at the same time I take it inside, already 3 months of essential oil frankincense for 1 drop in the morning and evening.I dropped oil on my finger and smeared it in my nose.
    I also insist on a piece of large Arabian incense for 1.5 liters of water.
    From evening I pour it with hot water and in the morning I have a fragrant-useful water.
    A day later I burn it in a bowl over the fire = the smell of wet incense is much more fragrant.
    A piece of Arabian incense is pleasant to chew like a gum and very useful = so do the Arabs. Somali and Ethiopian incense so do not do = they are small and very bitter.
    And so I noticed and my wife = we will sum up.
    Immunity has grown strongly. I began to sleep remarkably = without nightmares.
    I also made oil for the joints = it helped a lot, they stopped being sick.
    I'm a very nervous person and have become very calm and adequate, I do not react to much as before.
    In the house, the bakery products stopped spoiling the mold, but it simply withered away.
    And from the ingestion of essential oil of incense, my craving for sugar has vanished = I can do without the sweet one for a few days.Previously, this was not.
    On Amazon, I recently read a review of your compatriot-she was cured with oil after the birth of depression and became indifferent to sugar.
    I myself order oil from EBAY from INDIA. The Amazon interface is very difficult for us, and very difficult to translate = Google translator does a poor job with this task. ((((((( God help you…………

  17. I just purchased my 1st bottle and NOT disappointed. Using it on my chest with organic coconut oil for a cold..worked wonders. Using it on my face – not disappointed…yeah. Living it

  18. I have TBI & after I was injured in my head & when I would go to the Doctors I had to ask & answer questions & my brain would shake inside my head & a lady put a drop of Frankincense on the back of my neck on the brain stem on the back of my neck, my brain would stop shaking

  19. I love you guys !!! I got frinkincense cause your videos. I have sjongren rheumatoid arthritis. And all my fatigue, pain , are away.
    I could go shopping with out feeling tire my breathing problem went way too. It's amazing 😉

  20. I love natural remedies and thank goodness I have free advice from Dr. Axe if you are consistent with these recommended natural remedies whichever one that applies to you I know you will find amazing benefits

  21. good that it helps w blood thinning. maybe that why it increases oxygen. thinner blood doesn't make the heart work as hard.

  22. I was curious of it after watching Dr Axe talking about it and I went to purchase a bottle. Now I cannot live without it and wish I had used it long time ago. I even purchased the essential oils and ancient medicine book, it’s very informative, thx a lot!

  23. I love your channel and have learned so much from you!So,I was thinking about using frankincense to help my husband with severe arthritis pain and joint pain Hes having surgery on April 1st so I’m concerned because it’s a blood thinner.Woukd it be ok to use and if not what oils would be a better alternative?

  24. Can your Frankinsence Oil be taken orally? I know someone who is selling Dottera brands of ouls and she said that their Frankinsence oil can be taken internally. I have never tried this oil before. Thankyou for your videos.

  25. they dont 'find' it on the tree they cut the trunk of the tree's and starts to seep out of the tree

  26. I'm gonna order some of this on eBay, it will be on my to do list,all these benefits I can't pass it up

  27. I had Melanoma removed on my back close to the neck. The scar keloid and Frankincense had truly helped. Key to start using and keep at it. Love it….I use Dailey. Great video, Thank You❤️

  28. I put Frankincense in my beard oil…just simply amazing. Smells great, absorbs quickly and leaves a soft feel to my skin and beard (besides the carrier oils used and no JoJoba oil). I had a scar on my left cheek that is starting to fade. Did I say it was amazing?

  29. In the Philippines , if our 1yr old or above baby kept crying/ being cranky and can't sleep properly. We burn incense in the heated charcoal and let the aroma circle in the baby for three seconds in a well ventilated area of course. They calm down easily and sleep soundly after.

    Adults also use it.

  30. Thank You for all your years of study to bring: God ordained natural treatments that work naturally to produce balance and health.
