If Frankincense was a gift fit for Jesus then it must be good! Upon further investigation into its properties (especially for combating Lyme and its effects), I learned that Frankincense is a powerful oil and a must-have for any at-home apothecary.
So what makes Frankincense so special? Apart from its notable appearance at Jesus’ birth, Frankincense is notable for its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier. This is key to treating Lyme since it becomes neurological as the disease takes over. Frankincense has been shown to help with herx reactions during healing and to reduce the persistent fog known as “lyme brain.” Since the brain sends messages to the rest of the body Frankincense has body-wide benefits, especially when it comes to joints, digestion and immunity.
To use Frankincense I suggest beginning with diffusing. This is my go-to method for testing out how my body will respond to a particular oil. Start with a little – trust me, it goes a long way. One of the very best uses for Frankincense is to dilute it in a carrier oil and use it on the soles of the feet. The uses are seemingly endless. With Frankincense you can not only help aid your Lyme recovery but you can create a healthier life by using it to make your own cleaning and hygiene products.
If you’re gettin’ oily, add a few drops of Frankincense into the mix. The Lyme will hate it but your body will love it.
