I like to spend a little time on Sabbath afternoon learning more about the wonderful plants God has given us. Today, I researched BOSWELLIA & FRANKINCENSE. The Boswellia Tree is where we get FRANKINCENSE from…the bark of the tree is scratched and then it produces RESIN from which FRANKINCENSE OIL is made from. Both Boswellia and Frankincense Oil have wonderful medicinal properties. Boswellia helps alot with INFLAMMATION, has been very beneficial with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis, Breathing problems and Inflamed Bowels. Frankincense Oil is used with various types of cancer, in some cases having better results than Chemo (without the side-effects of Chemo).
Boswellia helps people with IBS to go into remission because of its ability to reduce bowel inflammation associated with the disease and ability to heal the bowel walls. A study published in 1997 found that patients given boswellia extract 3 times each day experienced significant improvements. 82% of the participants entered remission which was a higher number than those taking a standard inflammatory bowel prescription medication.
The Frankincense here is the same Frankincense that the Wise Men brought to Jesus when He was born.
Spend a little time reading about the wonderful things that Boswellia and Frankincense can do and you will be as excited as I am about this potent herb :).
These Natural Remedies are so much safer to use than Chemical Drugs.
