Frankincense and Myrrh Essential Oils Suppress Multiple Cancers: In this study, the essential oils of both frankincense and myrrh were shown to potently suppress human breast cancer, lung cancer, cervical cancer, liver cancer and skin cancer—slashing growth rates by at least 50% at surprisingly low concentrations. Myrrh was the most potent cancer killer of the two, and breast cancer cells were the most easily killed by both essential oils. How do these medicines of the ancients stack up against other known anticancer herbs? A recent study compared 374 herbal extracts against neuroblastoma and found that frankincense and myrrh ranked in the best 15 of all 374 extracts! They easily outperformed green tea, oregano, garlic, sage, ginger, rosemary, olive leaf and many others. Frankincense and myrrh are the dried resin (sap) from small trees (closely related to each other) that grow in the Middle East and Northeast Africa. They’ve been used for thousands of years in traditional medicine for relief from pain, fever, coughing, sore throat, swelling, and digestive problems. Frankincense and myrrh are widely available as incense and essential oils, in soaps, skin lotions, aromatherapy, body scrubs and are even found in a rubbing oil for the prevention of cold and flu due to their potent antibacterial and antiviral properties!
