Inflammation is one of the key processes through which the body fights infection. When tissue becomes inflamed, white blood cells arrive to fight infection. Local inflammation causes redness, swelling, and heat. It can occur with injuries ranging from mild to life-threatening.7
Because Frankincense has been used over the centuries as a powerful anti-inflammatory, I have been using it daily on the area that houses my tumors. One tumor is Triple negative meaning that it is not influenced by hormones. The other tumor is estrogen/progesterone positive (+) and her2 negative (-) and is influenced by the hormones of estrogen and progesterone.
There are studies listed below that do prove this anti-inflammatory claim. So don’t just take my word for it – check out the links below.
You can also create your own 10ml roller and make it various strengths to suite your needs.
I took the old rollers and calculated a 10% dilution because I am actively fighting a condition that is caused by acute inflammation. Normally if you are using daily you only need a 2-3% dilution but as I said my immune system is compromised right now so I upped it to 25%. You can use what you feel is right for you. I also added in DDR prime blend and I will talk about this later in the blog. Stay tuned as to my reasons why.
A 10 ml roller like the one shown above holds about 170 drops of oil total. 25% of this would be approx 43 drops. (170x.25=42.5 drops) Just to make it easy I add 50 drops of frankincense oil to the roller and then fill the rest with sweet almond oil. (use your own favorite carrier – Fractionated coconut oil works the best and absorbs nicely.) When I am mixing DDR with it I split the amount in half so 25 drops of DDR and 25 drops of Frank. I roll this on the areas every morning after a shower and every night before I go to bed. Yes I try and be religious with this application!!
And yes I do this regiment along with my weekly chemo treatments. My doctors have been very supportive of oils through this journey.
Stay tuned and I will share more details of what I use on a daily basis to fight and boost immunity naturally.
To our knowledge, this was the first study of the biological activities of FREO in human dermal fibroblasts. FREO was significantly anti-proliferative to these cells. FREO significantly inhibited the production of collagen III, IP-10, and ICAM-1. Genome-wide gene expression analysis showed that FREO modulated global gene expression. It also robustly affected signaling pathways which are relevant to inflammation and tissue remodeling.4
