There is a lot of talk at the moment about the wonderful benefits of Frankincense and particularly in the field of cancer.
Renowned as one of the most prized and precious essential oils, Frankincense has extraordinary internal and external health benefits.
It’s soothing and beautifying properties are used to rejuvenate skin and reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
As the king of oils, Frankincense is known to promote cellular health and immunity and can be consumed daily for these internal benefits. It also promotes a healthy inflammatory response and acts as an overall tonic to the body’s systems, helping them function optimally. When inhaled or diffused, Frankincense induces feelings of peace, relaxation, satisfaction, and overall wellness.
There are currently studies being conducted in the US looking at the effect of therapeutic-grade essential oils and their response in the body to cancer, with some positive findings. However there is still a lot of research to be done.
Frankincense can be diffused throughout your home, or mixed with fractionated coconut oil in a roll on which can be applied directly to the skin. (Research has shown that certified therapeutic grade essential oils are rapidly absorbed into your bloodstream).
There are many more essential oils with fantastic benefits. Call us at Lime Physical Therapy for more information - Ph: 3188 9308
