Have I mentioned how much I love essential oils lately?
There are some pretty amazing things you can do with essential oils and I find myself using them more and more. Obviously with using them more and more I have been researching them more and more. I love this article I found about frankincense and the possibilities of it being superior to chemotherapy in killing late-stage ovarian cancer cells:
Frankincense, along with gold and myrrh, is one of the most famous Christmas presents in history, and is a fragrant plant resin extracted from the Boswellia sacra tree found across Africa and Arabia. Using the compound AKBA (acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid) derived from the resin, the research has successfully shown its potential effectiveness in targeting ovarian cancer.
More specifically, they have been able to demonstrate the ability of AKBA to combat cancer cells in late-stage ovarian cancer.
What do you think? Is frankincense superior to chemotherapy?
