Young Living Essential Oils offers 2 types of Frankincense. Frankincense (Boswellia carteri) and Sacred Frankincense. This essential oil comes from the Boswellia sacra frankincense tree and is distilled at the Young Living distillery in Oman.
Frankincense Oil, Olibanum Oil or Oil of Lebanon is considered a holy oil in the Middle East and we know that it was given to Christ at the time of his birth. Frankincense essential oil is mentioned 22 times in the Bible. The uses and benefits of Frankincense date back way before the time of Christ to the Egyptians and Sumerians.
The Egyptians used it for incense, skin care, stomach ailments and kohl.
Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil, Oman Frankincense or Omani hojari is showing anti-tumoral and anti-cancer activity according to new research by Dr. Mahmoud Sunhail.
It is one of the rarest essential oils of the world as this species of frankincense tree only grows in Oman. It is considered the most precious spiritual oil of the Middle East; and as such has not been available outside of Oman for purchase until recently..
Although many texts cite that the species of Boswellia carterii and Boswellia sacra are identical, chemists and historians would disagree; as well as Saudi Royals and Oman Officials! It is believed that Boswellia sacra is the ancient species of which the oil of biblical times was created.
Although the chemistry of the essential oils is slightly different the same medicinal properties and uses of frankincense oil apply. However, studies are finding that the anti-cancerous effects are far greater than the Boswelli carterii species. It is actually dissolving or digesting the nucleus or “brain center” of cancer cells!!!
Today, we know through Chemistry that Frankincense contains sesquiterpenes that stimulate the part of the brain that controls emotions. It also helps the hypothalamus, pineal and pituitary glands that produce many of the important hormones in our body. And it helps strengthen the immune system by increasing leukocyte activity.
For years Frankincense was known to the holistic world to assist with cancer because of many of the properties listed in the previous paragraph. But recently in 2010 Frankincense has made the news again saying that the medical community is starting to understand why it is useful in combating cancer!
It was interesting that the BBC article stated that Frankincense “closes down the nucleus to stop it reproducing corrupted DNA codes.” Those using essential oil for years have known through Organic Chemistry that oils heal through a “PMS model” as presented by Dr. David Stewart.
The PMS Model consists of Phenols, Sesquiterpenes and Monoterpenes. Phenols clean the receptor sites of the cell; Sesquiterpenes delete bad information from cellular memory (DNA) and monoterpenes awaken or restore the correct information stored in the cell at a DNA level.
