Put it to work on your skin, your mind, your senses and luxuriate in the experience

MORE INFO

Frankincense is traditionally used for cancer treatment and is currently being investigated in university studies for its anticancer effects. During a presentation before a regional meeting of the American Cancer Society in Roanoke, Virginia, Dr. John Robertson, director of the college’s Center for Comparative Oncology, said he’s found the oil has fairly selective antitumor activity and doesn’t appear to disrupt normal cells. “I think this research on frankincense oil suggests that this ancient medicine may have significant modern uses for chemotherapy of nonresectable malignancies,” said Robertson. The oil has been noted specifically for its effect on skin tumors (melanoma) and breast cancer. Certain of its compounds have been linked to the suppression of tumor growth as well.
