Medicinal use of Frankincense

Frankincense is regarded as one of the best incense out there, some people call it the king of all incense, it has been used for thousands of years by kings, queens, prophets all the way back to pharos dating back to 1500 B.C Egypt. It is one of the most effective incense that can be used for aromatherapy as it has many health benefits that are not only physical but spiritual and mental.

One of the benefits of Frankincense is that it has anti-inflammatory effects, which can help many issues people may have like arthritis, scientists believe that frankincense can slow down the release of leukotrienes which are the cause of most inflammation. In a recent placebo test, frankincense worked much better with patients who used frankincense to reduce pain compared to patients who used a placebo substance. Frankincense also reduced the number of medications patients needed to take for arthritis. According to Healthline "In one study, participants given 1 gram per day of frankincense extract for eight weeks reported less joint swelling and pain than those given a placebo. They also had a better range of movement and were able to walk further than those in the placebo group", this can show that Frankincense can be used to replace over-the-counter medicine.

Another benefit is that when the Frankincense resin is burned, the smoke from the resin can help a person feel calm and relaxed when inhaled.

Frankincense has been known to have an uplifting and calming effect on the body's nervous system, which in turn can cause less anxiety and stress, making it one of the few natural remedies that a person can take with little to no side effects.
