This is big news.
I mean huge, world changing news.
This year my family received a Christmas miracle. I believe Sacred Frankincense was the catalyst.
I still can’t get over how wonderful this news is. All the prayers, positive mental attitude, eating right, and everything else that goes along with living healthy were all a part of it. Along with the treatments, this, I believe helped in healing.
I promised I wouldn’t say who, but someone close to me has been taking Sacred Frankincense (2 drops of essential oil in orange juice every morning for 3 months) and has seen dramatic improvement in
health. The bone that was eaten away by tumors from ovarian cancer is literally healing as we speak from this rampant killer that is devastating so much of the world. It is horrific watching someone you love suffer from one of the worst diseases humanity has ever dealt with –
I’ll bet everyone knows someone who has had to deal with this terrible disease.
But there is hope.
And it’s coming from nature. God said that He gave us everything we need here on Earth. And I believe this to be true. Every plant, flower, tree, animal, etc. is here for a reason, and many we still need to figure out what those reasons are.
Some are for healing, and medicines have always been based in nature.
Look at any medicine and it’s source is based in nature.
Ancient gift of sacred frankincense
Sacred Frankincense was one of the gifts the baby Jesus was given by wise men, and that alone should tell us something. It should be prized as gold.
The Frankincense the wise men gave baby Jesus probably came across the deserts from Oman.
(The BBC’s Jeremy Howell visited the country to ask whether a commodity that was once worth its weight in gold could be reborn as a treatment for cancer.) Read about his journey here.
There are tons of scientific studies going on right now. Here is one:
Boswellia sacra essential oil induces tumor cellspecific apoptosis and suppresses tumor
aggressiveness in cultured human breast cancer cells. Link to biomed central for study in .pdf.

Notes from Jeremy Howell’s trip …Cancer hope
But immunologist Mahmoud Suhail is hoping to open a new chapter in the history of frankincense.
Scientists have observed that there is some agent within frankincense which stops cancer spreading, and which induces cancerous cells to close themselves down. He is trying to find out what this is.
“Cancer starts when the DNA code within the cell’s nucleus becomes corrupted,” he says. “It seems frankincense has a re-set function. It can tell the cell what the right DNA code should be.
“Frankincense separates the ‘brain’ of the cancerous cell – the nucleus – from the ‘body’ – the cytoplasm, and closes down the nucleus to stop it reproducing corrupted DNA codes.”
Working with frankincense could revolutionise the treatment of cancer. Currently, with chemotherapy, doctors blast the area around a tumour to kill the cancer, but that also kills healthy cells, and weakens the patient. Treatment with frankincense could eradicate the cancerous cells alone and let the others live.
The task now is to isolate the agent within frankincense which, apparently, works this wonder. Some ingredients of frankincense are allergenic, so you cannot give a patient the whole thing.
Boswellia sacra grows in Oman, Yemen and Somalia . Other Boswellia species grow in Africa and India.
The tree may have been named after John Boswell, the uncle of Samuel Johnson’s biographer
In ancient Egypt frankincense was thought to be sweat of the gods

Dr Suhail (who is originally from Iraq) has teamed up with medical scientists from the University of Oklahoma for the task.
In his laboratory in Salalah, he extracts the essential oil from locally produced frankincense. Then, he separates the oil into its constituent agents, such as Boswellic acid.
“There are 17 active agents in frankincense essential oil,” says Dr Suhail. “We are using a process of elimination. We have cancer sufferers – for example, a horse in South Africa – and we are giving them tiny doses of each agent until we find the one which works.”
“Some scientists think Boswellic acid is the key ingredient. But I think this is wrong. Many other essential oils – like oil from sandalwood – contain Boswellic acid, but they don’t have this effect on cancer cells. So we are starting afresh.”
The trials will take months to conduct and whatever results come out of them will take longer still to be verified. But this is a blink of the eye in the history of frankincense.
Nine thousand years ago, Omanis gathered it and burnt it for its curative and cleansing properties. It could be a key to the medical science of tomorrow.
Jeremy Howell reports for Middle East Business Report on BBC World News.
Now it’s not just any Frankincense that will do. It has something to do with the specific type from Oman. Sacred Frankincense – Boswellia Sacra is the type most associated with cancer reasearch.
Frankincense has demonstrated ability to kill cancer cells in every organ cell line on which it has been tested, while causing no harm to healthy cells. Now, Frankincense essential oil has been show to specifically disrupt the development of breast cancer cells, with a note in the research abstract that “the essential oil may be effective for advanced breast cancer”.*
Frankincense resin, from which the essential oil is distilled.
In research published in BMC Alternative and Complimentary Medicine, essential oil steam distilled from Boswellia sacra tree resin was used. Frankincense is the dried resin commonly from one of three Boswellia tree species, the others being Boswellia carteri and Boswellia seratta.
Another point brought up by a fellow aromatherapist mentioned the sustainability of this special Frankincense.
Since tapping the tree for sap (frankincense) might suggest no permanent harm and therefore sustainable; but…. “These over-tapped trees have a pollination rate of around 16 per cent, compared with 80 per cent for a healthy tree. Tapping also makes them more vulnerable to attacks from the longhorn beetle, which lays its eggs under the bark. ” http://www.telegrap h.co.uk/gardenin g/gardeningadvic e/9758581/ What-will- save-the- frankincense- tree.html Management guide for sustainable production of frankincense http://www.cifor. org/publications /pdf_files/ Books/BKassa1101 .pdf
If you are interested in buying sacred Frankincense for use in healing of cancer or other ailments, I recommend using only a very high quality essential oils with the advisement of a professional aromatherapist.
