Mt retour Organic Frankincense Essential Oil
Here’s just a few fantastic reasons I use Frankincense oil! I use the oil on my neck at night, under my armpits before bed and I also add a few drops with organic coconut oil and rub it onto my lichen sclerosis. It stops the itching immediately!

Arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) — Research by Cardiff University scientists found that frankincense can inhibit the production of key inflammatory molecules, helping prevent the breakdown of the cartilage tissue that causes these conditions.17
In addition, Indian frankincense or boswellin, also a member of the Boswellia genus, has been found to significantly reduce inflammation in animal studies.
• Colds and respiratory disorders — Frankincense oil can break up phlegm deposits in your respiratory tract and lungs, and can relieve bronchitis-related congestion.18
• Oral health problems — The antiseptic qualities of this oil can help prevent bad breath, cavities, toothaches, mouth sores, and other infections.19
• Digestive disorders — Frankincense oil can help speed up the secretion of gastric juices, bile, and acids, and stimulates peristaltic motion to allow food to move properly through your intestines.20
• Uterine health — Frankincense oil regulates oestrogen production in women and reduces the risk of post-menopause tumour or cyst formation in the uterus (uterine cancer). It also regulates the menstrual cycle of premenopausal women.21
Frankincense is also being studied for its potential to treat cancer. Scientists have observed that there’s an agent in this oil that may help stop cancer from spreading.
