Our therapeutic pure resin powder is ground from our resin nuggets.
A major healing component of our frankincense resin powder is boswellic acid. This active ingredient has proven to be effective in treating chronic inflammatory diseases such as arthritis, rheumatism, inflammatory bowel disease, fibromyalgia, and various cancers. It has been found to relieve pain, improve blood supply to the joints, restore the integrity of weakened blood vessels, as well as preventing inflammatory white cells from getting into damaged tissue.
Creams containing boswellic acids can lead to a significant improvement when used daily as a facial moisturizer. This effective topical agent will soften facial lines, increase elasticity, decrease sebum excretion, and improve psoriasis. It has a soothing effect on irritated skin, reduces redness, and produces an even skin tone.
To make a healing Boswellic extract cream combine 1-part Sacred Frankincense Therapeutic Pure Resin to 1 part coconut oil. Stir well and let sit overnight to dissolve the resin. Then slowly stir in 5 parts of a plain, odorless cream such as glaxal cream. (ie. 2 tsp powder : 2 tsp coconut oil : 10 tsp cream) Mix really well and it’s ready to use as a facial moisturizer or to help relieve pain due to inflammation.
Side effects from frankincense resin powder use are rare, but occasionally skin rash may occur. There are no confirmed documented contraindications or drug interactions but the herb might increase the effects or toxicity of some. It should not be used by pregnant women and women who are breastfeeding.
