Frankincense oil is from the genus Boswellia and sourced from the resin of the Boswellia carterii or Boswellia sacra tree that’s commonly grown in Somalia. This tree is different from many others in that it can grow with very little soil in dry and desolate conditions.
The word frankincense comes from the term “franc encens,” which means quality incense in old French. Frankincense has been associated with many different religions over the years, especially the Christian religion, as it was one of the first gifts given to Jesus by the wise men.
Boswellia serrata is a tree native to India that produces special compounds that have been found to have strong anti-inflammatory, and potentially anti-cancer, effects. Among the valuable boswellia tree extracts that researchers have identified, several stand out as being most beneficial, including terpenes and boswellic acids, which are strongly anti-inflammatory and protective over healthy cells.
Frankincense oil is used by either inhaling the oil or absorbing it through the skin, usually mixed with a carrier oil, such as coconut oil or jojoba oil. It’s believed that the oil transmits messages to the limbic system of the brain, which is known to influence the nervous system. A little bit of oil goes a long way, and it should not be ingested in large quantities as it can be toxic.
If you’re purchasing essential oils, avoid oils that say “fragrance oil” or “perfume oil” as these can be synthetic and don’t provide the desired health benefits. Instead, look for oils that say “pure essential oil” or “100% essential oil” for the highest quality essential oil.
To improve circulation and lower symptoms of joint pain or muscle aches, try massaging frankincense and copaiba oil to the painful area 3 times a day.

I had phlegm on my chest for a couple of months and a stubborn tickle in my throat which made me cough and I thought the phlegm and cough would eventually go but they didn’t.
My wife Carole told me to try this Frankincense and Myrrh oil with 2 drops of each into a glass of water in the morning, at midday after food and just before bed.
I noticed I hadn’t coughed at all through the night like normal and had a great night's sleep. Continuing this for 5 days, I realised I was not coughing anymore.
Major PTSD Testimonial
For many years, after being involved in a major 5 car accident, I had no sleep and I had "brain fog." After reading all the references and research, I consumed 3 drops of Frankincense and 3 drops of Copaiba oil combined in a small glass of water (never plastic) after food in the morning, 3 drops of each oil after lunch and 3 drops of each oil after dinner.
I eventually found my mind to be much more calmer and even slept so much deeper and longer and the nightmares ceased.
My Painful Inflamed Shoulder Testimonial
Morning and night I applied 2 drops of Frankincense and 2 drops of Copaiba oil onto my right shoulder which was so painful I could not lift my arm above my waist, I was still consuming 3 drops of each oil and 1 applied 1 drop of each oil on the bottom of each foot on the smooth part near the arch, the pain was gone in 3 days. I couldn't believe the pain had gone and I haven't applied the oils to my shoulder since.
Testimonial from Mary July 2018
I have had chronic pain in both my hips since 2001 and I'm intolerant to cortisone so just had to manage the problem. I have done well with regular exercise but sometimes I think it would be nice to have something more instant! I have the Frankincense so I will get the Copaiba this month and try it. Thanks for that and I'll give you feedback!
2 weeks later a reply from Mary:....
Ok Roy I have followed your instructions and it took me a few days longer than yourself...however my right hip responded quickly left took longer but it has worked and I'm really happy as it's easy to do! I have oils and use them for various things. This is the best fix and I thank you so much for sharing it
Testimonial From Jay October 2018
Hi Carmen I tried Roy Morris advice and in less than 10 days my painful swelling , inflammation was gone . Previously I had tried everything and nothing worked . The only pain relief I got was very hot bath with epsom salts.
I also tried all natural remedies including deep tissue massage , Bowen therapy, chiropractic, and nothing was helping my pain . Then I decided to use the 2 oils , and almost 10 days my pain was gone .
Thanks to Roy Morris
Not to be taken internally if you are taking blood thinning meds.
NEVER buy essential oils from a 3rd party platform, as customer reviews state the oils are cheap fake copies and have been tampered with and watered down and the seals are broken when delivered and there is no law to stop this from happening for many products.
If you feel you have the need to buy cheap fake essential oils, take them at your own risk and should NOT be taken internally.
Here is some handy information for you.
