Frankincense Essential Oil and Cancer Cells
Here is an article from the Oklahoman newspaper about research at the University of Oklahoma using frankincense on bladder cancer cells:
A University of Oklahoma researcher says the Bible’s wise men were on to something with their gift of frankincense.
H.K. Lin, an assistant professor of urology at the OU College of Medicine, said the fragrant oil may be a cure for bladder cancer. His study is published today in the journal BioMed Central Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
Lin said lab testing found an extract of the Somali frankincense tree Boswellia carteri can kill off bladder cancer cells, while leaving normal cells intact. He said tests are needed on animals before the effectiveness can be studied in humans.
“Patients are dying every day,” he said. “If there is no effective therapy, why not try this?”
Lin admits urologists are skeptical.
“They don’t believe it,” he said.
“This is ancient medicine. There is no data that is so-called scientific for a medical doctor to trust it.”
Dr. Daniel Culkin, chairman of the urology department at OU College of Medicine, said he’s taking the research seriously. If effective, frankincense oil could be a cheap treatment for early stage bladder cancer.
“It’s been used in many Third World countries as alternative medicine for treatment of many conditions,” he said. “But it hasn’t been tested in this country under the scrutiny of the Food and Drug Administration.”
“Lin said lab testing found an extract of the Somali frankincense tree Boswellia carteri can kill off bladder cancer cells, while leaving normal cells intact.”
Dr. Lin also said he thought that, based on what he has seen in his research, he thinks everyone should be using frankincense as a form of “chemoprevention.”
Here is yet another recent article on the bbc about Frankincense:
So how would you go about using Frankincense every day? You may want to start by taking a 4 drops of DDRPrime essential oil blend with a meal each day. DDR Prime is a proprietary blend of CPTG Certified Pure Tested Grade™ essential oils that help protect the body against oxidative stress to cellular DNA and you guessed it, it contains the highest quality Frankincense essential oil.

Excellent article thanks. I used Frankincense essential oil on my feet and over my tumor areas for many months while I had cancer. That is not all I did but I know it helped. I continue to put a few drops on the soles of my feet at night before going to bed.
