Based on a 2015 clinical study, Frankincense oil has numerous benefits for your health and skin. I consider it one of the King Kongs of essential oils. It was even given as a gift to baby Jesus in the Bible!

How To Use Frankincense Oil

The effects and benefits of frankincense oil can be acquired by applying it topically, inhaling it using a diffuser or vaporizer, or ingesting it in very small amounts. Use 1-3 drops per use since it’s highly concentrated. Always dilute it with a carrier oil like almond oil if using it topically. Always dilute it with water if using a diffuser or if you are ingesting it.

Common Uses For Frankincense Oil

It has been commonly used to reduce swelling and alleviate the pain of inflammatory diseases and tumors. It’s also used to invigorate the circulation of blood in China and as an anti-arthritic tool in Indian Ayuredic medicine for thousands of years.

So let’s dive into the benefits of frankincense oil!

Frankincense is Anti-Inflammatory

It’s been shown to reduce inflammatory chemicals like TNFα, PGE2, IL-2, and NO in clinical studies. This can reduce autoimmune symptoms like arthritis! Read my post on arthritis here:

Humira is the best-selling pharmaceutical drug in the world, and all it does is block TNFa to reduce inflammation. Personally, I’d rather use essential oils to reduce my inflammation without the harsh side effects like compromising my immune system!

Patients use Humira to treat autoimmune conditions like arthritis and psoriasis, but there are plenty of better alternatives that they don’t know about!

Frankincense is Anti-Cancer

PGE2 is over-expressed in many cancers like lung, breast, and prostate cancer. Reducing PGE2 can reduce the risk of cancer. Thanks Frankincense! Read my post on cancer here:

Frankincense Is A Powerful Anti-Oxidant

It inhibits reactive oxygen species production in the synoviocytes through modulation of TNFα and IL-1 synthesis. Reducing pro-inflammatory cytokines TNFa and IL-1 prevents oxygen free radical damage.

Frankincense Preserves Collagen

Reducing pro-inflammatory cytokines TNFa and IL-1 inhibits collagenases which are enzymes that destroy collagen. Therefore, one of the benefits of Frankincense is that it preserves collagen!

Frakincense Helps Heal Topical Steroid Withdrawal (TSW)

TSW happens because steroid creams inhibit nitric oxide (NO) production in the skin to artificially reduce inflammation. Stopping steroid creams has a rebound effect in the skin and overproduces nitric oxide leading to exaggerated vasodilation. While generally a good thing for healthy bodies, excess nitric oxide release leads to redness, burning, itching, swelling, and oozing for an extended period of time. You have to reduce nitric oxide in the skin to heal topical steroid withdrawal.

Frankincense Reduces Nitric Oxide

Essentails oils like Rosemary Oil and Frankincense Oil reduce nitric oxide production and have powerful anti-inflammatory properties! It’s great on skin to help heal eczema and topical steroidal withdrawal. Recommended: Use a carrier oil like Almond Oil and add 1-3 drops of Rosemary Oil or Frankincense Oil. Apply to affected areas.

Emphasizing Gut Inflammation

To heal skin naturally, you first have to understand what inflammation is. The theme of many skin conditions like acne, eczema, and psoriasis is internal inflammation. The foods we eat release inflammatory chemicals (cytokines, leukotrienes, prostaglandins, etc.) from various white blood cells (neutrophils, monocytes, eosinophils, lymphocytes). When too many chemicals are released, the immune system starts to overreact and send signals to the skin. It is the single most important event that leads to negative skin conditions. Patients and dermatologists wrongly focus on fixing the skin when it’s actually a gut inflammation problem.

Eczema is related to Th2 dominance whereas psoriasis and autoimmune conditions are linked to Th1 dominance. Th1 and Th2 are both activated by inflammatory foods acting as antigens (foreign attackers) to the immune system!

Here are the 5 BEST INVESTMENTS you can make to achieve clear skin and longevity for the rest of your life!

1. Food Sensitivity Test

99% of people don’t understand their body’s limitations and weaknesses when it comes to food.

Remember guys: FOOD is the ultimate medicine, but it can also be the ULTIMATE POISON.

Simply put, foods will increase or decrease inflammation inside your body. This test will tell you which foods to eat and avoid based on your immune system’s reactions to 170 different foods.

Fad diets are a joke! You can be sensitive to any of the foods in any of the diets. I guessed on my diet and it left me debilitated. Don’t guess on yours.

Food Sensitivity Test

I now work with the research lab that saved my skin, and it can help you heal your body naturally. They have 3 US Patents for their food sensitivity test that analyzes 170 different foods. They have the highest level of accuracy at 94% sensitivity and 92% specificity. This is the future of healthcare because it is personalized and customized to YOUR specific body.

2. Omega 3 Test

I took an Omega 3 Test (BalanceTest) created by Zinzino to measure inflammation in my cell membranes. It showed my Omega 6:3 ratio. You can view my actual test results.

The average American is 25:1 (Their cells are inflamed by 25x!)

People taking fish oil pills is 16:1 (Pills are NOT bioavailable or effective!)

My ratio was 5:1.

A healthy level is below 3:1.

My optimal target is 1:1.

Too much Omega 6s have been linked to acne, eczema, psoriasisautoimmune conditions, and cancers due to excessive cell inflammation.

That’s why I take my Omega 3 oil every day to reduce inflammation inside my body for healthier skin and for my longevity. 90% of Americans are Omega 3 deficient, and it’s causing 96,000 Americans to die each year!

3. Sauna

Sweating is amazing for your skin and longevity. Exercising doesn’t allow you to sweat out toxins as much as a sauna would.

The benefits of saunas include: Increasing white blood cells, boosting the immune system, reducing stress, activating heat-shock proteins for longevity, reducing risk for sudden cardiac death by 63%, reducing all-cause mortality by 40%, reducing dementia risk by 66%, and risk for Alzheimer’s disease by 65%. Do I need to say more???

4. Blender

Getting a quality blender is the easiest way to get your daily vitamins and minerals from REAL food. Studies show that multivitamin pills aren’t that effective! People complain about weak immune systems especially now during the Coronavirus outbreak, but they’re deficient in so many vitamins and minerals! I use my blender every day and it’s become a highlight of my day. Here’s my longevity recipe:

I use my King Kong Vitamix to blend – Flaxmilk, Water, Kale, Broccoli, Honey, Turmeric, Blueberries, Bananas, Strawberries, Collagen, and Cinnamon. It tastes amazing. The Vitamix is a BEAST and will not break like other cheap blenders will after 10 uses. It’s the best blender brand by far, and that’s why I recommend it for you.

5. Collagen

The secret to preventing wrinkles and healing acne scars is COLLAGEN! Collagen makes up 75% of your skin and it’s the most abundant protein inside your body. It contains numerous essential and non-essential amino acids that make up 30% of your entire proteins!
