Frankincense : Boswellia Carteri


Sacred Frankincense: Boswelia Sacra essential oil notes...

This note is in honor of Frankincense oil.
... including beneficial oil blends and other Young Living products containing Frankincense oil and other info.

My introduction to real essential oils:
I was introduced to Young Living Essential oils through a concerned person who learned of my suffering with pain and limited range of motion throughout my body for three years 24hrs. a day from an injury I sustained when a sauna that I was in collapsed.  As an active bodyworker, dancer and dance instructor, I was quite miserable.

 After a month of consideration, I ordered a starter kit of a collection of Everyday Oils and a couple of other ones specifically to support my injuries.  By using a small collection of these oils daily, my healing was accelerated and I was out of pain within a month!  (After MDs, PT, Chiropractic, muscle relaxers, anti-inflammatory pills, etc.) I used the oils for about six months on myself and anyone who was interested to make sure it was not a placebo effect and to see if they work on others as well as myself, then began integrating them into my bodywork practice for my clients who loved them. They took my work to a new level.

I became certified in aromatherapy through Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt's Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy, continued studying and a year later began selling Young Living Essential Oils after researching the marketplace and to make sure that this was the best deal for the best prices for the quality of real oils vs. synthetics and low quality oils found in most health food and other stores or online. I work daily with these therapeutic essential oils (otherwise known as Aromatherapy oils) that I use for various conditions of body, mind, spirit, pets and environment as I have been for over 20 years now, and help others who are interested to do the same.

 Before discovering therapeutic quality oils, like most people, I had only been exposed to lesser quality or synthetic oils for fragrance purposes only.
Using synthetics or low quality oils is totally unacceptable now, after discovering the difference, and may result in mediocre or dangerous results.
My teachers include Gary Young, Kurt Schnaubelt, Jeanne Rose, and others.

I continue to be fascinated by seeing the oils work so well and it was good to have the confirmation of an MD friend who had never been exposed to aromatherapy before.  It was great when he said... after experiencing the effects of Frankincense oil after about one minute... “There is no western medicine that I know of that can do what that oil just did in that short of time for my asthma”.

Frankincense oil was worth it’s weight in gold in biblical times and before for good reason. This affirms why, once again, using the oils - or anointing with the oils -  has been passed down over so long throughout time - because they simply are effective and also pleasant to be around.

A type of Frankincense, Boswellia Sacra, or Sacred Frankincense is proven to contain a wider range of healing properties.   Besides the empirical, or tried and true knowledge of its effects  through time, this oil is now being researched by a team of allopathic medical doctors, to scientifically prove its efficacy in the treatment of serious health concerns.

Frankincense oil and resin  properties may assist people in dealing with a wide range of conditions affecting the body, mind and spirit as it has for centuries.

When Frankincense resin (the dried sap from Frankincense trees) is burned on hot coals in censors or in other suitable burners in places of worship or in homes, the same therapeutic and practical properties that are present in the essential oils are released in its smoke. if the resin is of high quality.

 In antiquity, the air was actually being fumigated and purified for the huddled masses of people who gathered or for everyday living in homes.  The same is true today.  The incensed environment can be rid of undesirable odors and unwanted pests and insects can be repelled.   Airborne infections can be reduced and emotions, the psyche and more can be altered by the properties in the smoke.  (Remember, like oils, the resin used for smoke must be pure and of high therapeutic quality otherwise results will be limited to fumigating insects, reducing unpleasant odors and clearing the air.  If synthetic fragrances have been added to the resin, you will end up inhaling them into your body as well.)

I have been around burning Frankincense my whole life from within the Greek Orthodox church I attended, to my two Greek grandmother’s burning it at home and my own continued use of it to shift, bless and clear my home...and the homes of others.

It is important to use only the finest therapeutic grade essential oils. If low quality or synthetic or adulterated oils are used, mediocre or harmful effects may occur.  I recommend using Young Living Essential oils, which are regularly tested for therapeutic quality.  Many of the oils for sale on the market are synthetically altered or extended and not to be used on the body or in my opinion for anything.  Keep out of the reach of small children.
