    Feature Article...

    The One Gift -The Frankincense Trail

    Over the last two months I have had the pleasure of receiving amazing information from Gary Young at the International Grand Convention in Salt Lake City in June and then in July at the Silver Club in Coeur D'Alene both in the USA.

    I would love to share with you the exciting developments with frankincense. The information I am sharing from notes I took at both events, so enjoy the knowledge I am about to share with you!

    Frankincense was first in use around 5000BC but Gary believes that it dates to as far back as 10000BC. Gary conducted his research is Oman, Jordan and Saudi Arabia - an adventure to say the least!

    It seems that he discovered that it is actually the 3rd cut, about 45 days after the first cut contains the most chemical constituents and therefore is more therapeutically useful than other cuts. The resin forms tear drop shapes on the tree that are then gathered and distilled.

    Boswellia sacra (sacred frakincense) is found in Oman, Boswellia carteri is found in Somalia and Boswellia frereana is found in Somalia and mostly used in the perfume industry. It is sweet smelling and most fragrant but has less healing properties than the other species.

    There is also another species Boswellia neglecta is found in Ethiopia and Sudan but considered poor quality.

    It seems that Gary found that the harder the soil the better the oil! Frankincense has the highest DRC (DNA Repair Capacity). Gary experimented on himself to help regenerate disc, cartlidge and bone and is now continuing his research at his clinic in Ecuador.

    There is some indication that frankincense may also help serum cholesterol - an amazing oil!

    Gary also showed many regimens that he is using in the clinic with cancer patients. He also discussed that he is not treating disease, but developing a regeneration program. Some of the combinations he mentioned were frankincense and lemongrass, and frankincense and melissa. Most included other vitamins, minerals and other supplements.

    During one session a panel of doctors and other health professionals discussed the importance of frankincense for stress.

    It seems the traditions of the Middle East meant that the people used frankincense EVERYDAY. They drank it in their water, burnt the resin and smoked their clothes and bedding with it.

    Is it a coincidence that Oman (where they use frankincense every day) has the lowest cancer rate in the world? One of the doctor's present (Dr Mahmoud Sahail) said that the local hospital had no cancer ward and he had only personally treated 4 patients over the year with cancer. All four had been exposed to Western living!

    He also mentioned that frankincense was useful for asthma and lung conditions and if you have ever smelt a pure medicinal grade essential oil, I notice how I breathe a little deeper and my lungs feel a little clearer.

    Dr Suhail has also used frankincense for Inflammatory Bowel Disease and saw a 82% improvement in 6 weeks. He also talked about absorption through the skin is 6 times better on the forehead, and recommends this.

    There were so many uses of frankincense it was astounding! Check out the Oils Testimonials website below (type in "frankincense" into the search database) to give you an idea of how frankincense can be used for many things.

    It really has become a special oil for me. It will often become my first oil of choice, especially if I am not sure what to use. Of course, I always use the purest as I know I will get superior results. Frankincense should be in everyone's medicine cabinet.

    Important: Jen only uses and recommends Young Living Essential Oils. All the information above is based on using Young Living Essential Oil - The World Leaders in Essential Oils.

    Sacred Frankincense: Bliss Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil Of the Month


    Sacred Frankincense essential oil is regarded the world over as the rarest, most sought-after aromatic in exsistance.

    (NB: The two diffusers in the photo are available now through Young Living (see above for ordering details). Both are cold air diffusers, which I highly recommend. Australia, the diffuser on the left will be available shortly but sorry Australia, the diffuser on the right is not available due to electrical restrictions.)

    After careful negotitations with Omani officials, Gary Young was granted permission to build a Young Living distillery in-country and take the resulting essential oil out of Oman. Until this partnership, no Omani frankincense had ever left the country, unless directly purchased by Saudi royals.

    As Sacred Frankincense is a very new oil to be distilled there is no reference to it in the Essential Oils Desk Reference. However, there is extensive information about Frankincense (Boswellia carteri), the traditional frankincense, in the EODR. It is considered a perfect complement to Sacred Frankincense. It is ideal for special use when a deeper spiritual connection is required.

    Botanical Name:

    Boswellia sacra


    None known


    Carolyn L. Mein's Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils is a great reference for emotions. Sacred Frankinccense helps support the emotions of:

    • Deepening spiritual connection

    Sacred Frankincense supplements Boswellia carteri's everyday applications. Diffuse while practicing yoga, meditation or prayer to deepen your experience and feel a connection to ancient traditions.
