Research indicates Frankincense may be useful for issues such as bronchial asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, or other autoimmune diseases.

Although most people are not sensitive to Frankincense, it is advisable to test a small area first. If sensitivity occurs, use a carrier oil to dilute. Diluting essential oils before topical application will not reduce the effectiveness of the essential oil, but extends the life if your oil, and in some cases, can even enhance it.
Store in a covered or dark, airtight container in the refrigerator or cool area for longest shelf life.
Showed pronounced activity against a panel of bacteria
Similar to our previous observations in human bladder cancer cells, Boswellia sacra essential oil induces breast cancer cell-specific cytotoxicity. Suppression of cellular network formation and disruption of spheroid development of breast cancer cells by Boswellia sacra essential oil suggest that the essential oil may be effective for advanced breast cancer. Consistently, the essential oil represses signaling pathways and cell cycle regulators that have been proposed as therapeutic targets for breast cancer. Future pre-clinical and clinical studies are urgently needed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Boswellia sacra essential oil as a therapeutic agent for treating breast cancer.
