and sometimes we get so angry we rant and rave.
It used to be once a week we would get that call we all hate.
Recently, it has been almost daily, either a call, or an email.
"Which of your Frankincense oils will help _______ Cancer.?" Usually it's Breast Cancer, but we have been asked to treat all kinds, with our best Frankincense oils.
And the questions break our hearts, and make us angry. This is the answer that we give, over and
There is NO essential oil, Frankincense or any other, shown to effect the growth of cancer cells in the human body. REPEAT. NO Frankincense oil, and no other essential oil, has been shown to effect the growth of cancer cells in the human body.
Now, there are research studies, using isolated cells, growing in a petri dish in a lab, that have had their growth slowed or been killed by exposure to specific substanced found within Frankincense RESIN. RESIN, not essential oil.
The primary studied component, extracted from the resin, is Boswellic Acid. A quick review of current research will show a LOT of studies of Boswellic Acid.
PLEASE, believe me. There is NO Boswellic Acid in Frankincense Essential oil, nor in Frankincense CO2. I wish there were. It is too heavy, chemically, to distill over. There is NO Frankincense Essential Oil that, used topically, inhaled, or ingested, can cure cancer. I would give everything I have to be able to tell people, YES, this Frankincense can help.
There are many ways that a trained aromatherapist may help someone battling cancer. I just gave an old friend a blend to help his skin heal from yet another series of radiation treatments. I can ease his pain, and I can give him oils to uplift his spirits. And I can pray for and with him. But I can NOT help him fight the cancer that is trying to kill him.
Please, do not believe those who say their oils can cure cancer. They do not have your wellbeing at heart. It is my personal believe that the lowest circle of Hell is reserved for those who prey upon the fear, pain and desperation of others.
And no, Frankincense Oil will not help heal polyps in your dogs' ears, either. (THAT made us angry. Especially after you said that Lavender hadn't helped.)
