Plant Family: Family: Burseraceae; Genus: Boswellia; Species: B. carteri;(and B. serrata, B. papyrifera, and B. sacra are also used;) Another species of Boswelia commonly used is known as B. Occulta; Interesting name no? (Occulta?)


Common nicknames(Varieties/Strains): Frankincense; olibanum; B. carterii; B serrata; B. papyrifera; B. sacra; B. Occulta;


Parts Used: Frankincense is the collected tree sap of Boswelia carterii, serrata, and other close relatives. It comes from a tree.


Native Habitat: Mesopotamia(the biblical origins of all life on earth); Scattered in the Arabian Peninsula, northern Somalia, Ethiopia and Iraq[1] It's also from India[9].


Properties/Medicinal Benefits: anti-bacterial[1] It has been tested against both gram positive Bacillus subtilis, Streptococcus pneumoniae and a one type of gram negative Proteus vulgaris.[1] antibiotic[1] A strain of Frankincense, scientific name: Boswellia serrata, "is used to treat many bacterial and fungal infections" (Weckesser, 2007). "It is also used to treat cancerous diseases, as many studies have proven its effectiveness against human leukemia" (Ernst, 2008 and Mohammed Aman, et al., 2010) Frankincense strengthens the heart, brain, and treats forgetfulness, as well as diarrhea, and arthritis, and other infections. It works to regulate the production of immune cytokines, and also offers cortisone inhibiting properties[1] It's used for nausea as well(personal observation); Antimicrobial[1](against: Bacillus subtilis, Streptococcus pneumoniae, and one gram negative Proteus vulgaris, at least!)[1] Useful for people with arthritis; anti-inflammatory[1] Anti-epileptic[2] Beneficial for: Memory[5], pain[6], inflammation[7], expectorant[8], antiseptic[8], anxiolytic[8], and anti-neurotic[8] Many studies have illustrated agreement, in that frankincense resin indeed has analgesic, and tranquil effects, as well as anti-bacterial properties.[8] Credible academic sources are stating that "Inhalation and consumption of Boswellia olibanum reduces the risk of asthma."[8] God-made is the only way to go folks. What the studies show about Frankincense can be described as miraculous. Studies also show that the boswellic acids that it contains, has an antiproliferative effect on tumours![8] The acid itself has anti-neoplastic properties[9] DNA Protective, and good for it's good for memory![10] Immuno-stimulant[14] anti-tumor[14] "Certain plants possess immunomodulatory properties exerting effects on various parts of the immune system on both cellular and molecular levels: T cells and other immune effector cells, cytokine, and antibody production"[14] Frankincense can bolster white blood cells! Studies show that exposure to one phytochemical found in the resin alone, alpha-pinene, increased T-cell activity![15] What are T-cells and why is this a big deal? "A type of white blood cell. T cells are part of the immune system and develop from stem cells in the bone marrow. They help protect the body from infection and may help fight cancer. Also called T lymphocyte and thymocyte"[16]


Useful for: Ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, bronchitis, cancer, nausea, colds, flu, and sinusitis, improving memory, and general well-being;[8] DIY cleaning sprays, homemade disinfectants, diy aromatics, homemade candles, industrial or diy perfumes, the culinary arts. Nausea; To give thanks to the Lord; As an offering to the Most High God and Jesus;


Aromatherapy: First of all, there is science behind aromatherapy! In 2008, a study proved that the smoke of the Boswellia carteri trees resin(Frankincense), was basically a psychoactive drug that relieves depression, and anxiety.[11] "Incensole acetate", a pharmacological phytochemical, is believed to be responsible for these specific properties. It's important to note that Frankincense does NOT get you high. "Psychoactive" doesn't necessarily mean "high inducing", and most of the time these types of substances produce no noticable effects what-so-ever. It's effects on the mind are subtle. Studies show that people tend to make more immoral decisions when they're around fowl smells[12][13]


Works well with for general medicine: Echinacea purpurea, Mullein leaf, Raspberry leaf, and Strawberry leaf. Works well with for dreams: Nutmeg, Passion flower, Cacao, Damiana...


Native Use: In Sokoto Nigeria, the root was boiled(to make what's called a decoction), to treat diabetes. The bark(which contains the frankincense resin), is boiled to make a topical wash for fevers, and rheumatism. It's consumed internally there for gastrointestinal issues. The Fulanis people use a cold infusion for snake bite, and as an anti-dote for other poisons. The stem bark of the tree is boiled for a tranquilizer effect, used to calm mental derangement by the Gwandara people of Northern Nigeria.[2] Aside from being native to Mesopotamia, and Africa, it is also native to India.[9]


Phytochemicals: It produces a number of miraculous fatty acids, like: Myristate, Palmatic, Oleic, Linolic, Arachidate, Arachidatenate and Lignocerate acids[1] The following are phenolic compounds found in Frankincense: Kaempferol, Qurcetine, Epigene, Gallic acid, and Catechin[1] It also contains: Thujene(not to be confused with Thujone), Camphene(also exist in Camphor), Pinene(a cannabis terpene), Myrcene(another cannabis terpenes), Limonene(another cannabis terpene), M-cymene and cis-verbenol[1] Omega 6 and 9(antibacterial)[1] 3-acetyl-beta-boswellic acid (Boswellia sacra), diterpenes[8], and alpha-boswellic acid; More components include: ethyl acetate, octyl acetate, and methylanisole[8] boswellic acids[8]

All of these are documented on academic databases like PubChem and Google Scholar. I link to them at the bottom of every page. [ Note this is not all of them that exist within the plant, and I never claim to cover every one of them. I try to get as many as possible listed though. ]


Quick Investigative Note: It seems that the tree is endangered! I hear about this from a lot of sources, and even shops that sell the live plants. Please do your part to protect this sacred tree! Learn more here: https://www.savefrankincense.org/frankincense-decline


Warnings: In the bible, things are taught through parables(metaphorically, symbolically)... Incense are associated with worship, and prayers.. The bible specifically warns that when incense are burned, they are to be burned to Jesus and the Most High God of the bible only! Pagans often burned incense to summon spirits. Revelation 8:3-5 He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel's hand. I also want to advise against adopting any pagan beliefs associated with Frankincense or any other natural gift that God put on this earth. Always Thank God for these things, and avoid getting sucked into satanic snares meant to decieve one into idolatry.. Only burn incense to the Most High, and make sure to specify this if you burn it.

Summary I saw on a documentary, that in Saudi Arabia people eat it.[3][4] It's often presented to people upon visits as a customary way of being polite there. I have not been able to find this fact online, so I thought it was a good thing to mention here on this blog. I did find an academic source to confirm that it is a fact, however! Here's a good documentary on the subject: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zy-JTXwpgGQ The first person that I ever shared that fact with looked baffled. Yup, it is a fact that you can eat it, and it is traditionally eaten. The taste is aquired, but it is not bad. Once the flavor runs out in the gum, the chewy part remains. It's often referred to as frankincense gum for this reason, because it has the same texture and behavior as chewing gum. People often suggest special made forms of charcoal tablets, used to burn incense, to burn Frankincense... I highly advise against this.. The point of burning natural incense such as this one, is that the smoke isn't bad for you if inhaled.. Using a charcoal tablet to burn the stuff though, defeats the purpose of seeking non-carcenogenic incense..


In Saudi Arabia, they deliberately enhale huge lung fulls of the smoke socially.., as a greeting in some situations. Frankincense is shown to be effective for fighting cancer! "Frankincense oil appears to distinguish cancerous from normal bladder cells and suppress cancer cell viability"[9]


Ezekiel 47:12 "And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine."


Preparations: Frankincense was an ingredient in a mixture prepared in the bible by Moses. The Lord himself told Moses how to prepare this, believe it or not! It was referred to as a "holy anointing oil", and it is safe for internal consumption as well. Exodus 30:22-28 covers this recipe. Here is a segment of the text where he shares the recipe: "Moreover the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, 23 Take thou also unto thee principal spices, of pure myrrh five hundred shekels, and of sweet cinnamon half so much, even two hundred and fifty shekels, and of sweet calamus two hundred and fifty shekels, 24 And of cassia five hundred shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of oil olive an hin: 25 And thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment, an ointment compound after the art of the apothecary I was very excited to see this in the bible, among other things. It shows that Christian saints and prophets mixed plants as well. The point is, mixing plants is not something that only pagan cultures did. It was God that gave man every seed bearing herb in the first place, and it was pagan cults that perverted herbalism, and turned in into alchemy, which then evolved into the modern pharmaceutical industry.


How To Grow Frankinense

It is considered an endangered species.. This is one more reason to grow it. Buy live Frankincense trees here. Shop around, and consider that shopping is like voting.. Vote for Christian and Jewish shops. Socialist have tried to oppress and destroy as many businesses as possible. It's up to our good deed doers to help support the entrepaneurs who deserve it. Please buy from ordinary people, and stop taking your money habitually to fortune 500 jezebels.


What is phytochemistry: A branch of science that studies the pharmacology of plants and the medicinal chemicals that they produce. Instead of using the best medicine that God has given us, plants, the knowledge is selfishly utilized to create diabolical abominations, that create illness, and death. The satanic belief that human beings can create things that perform better than the complex systems that God has already created, is incorrect, and foolish. Herbal medicine is more advanced than modern medicine, because it is made by the creator, and not poser scientist whose work has always, and will always, pale in comparison to that of the real creators work.

Genesis 1:29 "And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for nourishment(health; meat; food; wellness; vitality)".
