Turn your Frankincense Resin into Healthy Drinking Water
Frankincense is one of our oldest and most coveted essential oils. Ambroise Pare, a 16th century surgeon, would treat soldiers’ wounds with the oil and noted that it not only stopped bleeding but it also helped scar tissue to form quickly.
What are Frankincense Tears?
Frankincense is gathered in the form of tears form from the resin or sap of Boswellia tree. The bark is cut and the sap which begins to eventually flow once exposed to air becomes hard, forming bitter tasting golden beads called tears.
How can they help me?
Helps fight cancer. Yes the big C. With just a quick Google you’ll find studies, doctors and patients all talking about its benefits on skin cancer, bladder cancer and many others.
From Cancer Compass:
“Cancer starts when the DNA code within the cell’s nucleus becomes corrupted,” he says. “It seems frankincense has a re-set function. It can tell the cell what the right DNA code should be.
“Frankincense separates the ‘brain’ of the cancerous cell – the nucleus – from the ‘body’ – the cytoplasm, and closes down the nucleus to stop it reproducing corrupted DNA codes.”
It can also help deal with digestive issues, helps strengthen the immune system. It has an amazing ability to strengthen the skin and internal organs. Leading many (like me) to use the oil in their daily beauty routine.
To make Frankincense Water you’ll need:
- 1 Tbs Frankincense Resin (boswellia Sacra)
- Glass Mason Jar + Lid
- 8 oz Boiling Water
Directions: Place Frankincense Resin in the bottom of the jar. Boil Water. Pour water over resin until the jar is full. Cover with a lid or glass plate. Let the water sit overnight.
The finished product will be cloudy and full of the healthy aiding essential oils.
How to Use it: Drink a few ounces throughout the day. You should introduce this drink to your body slowly. Start with just a few ounces a day and build up to a glass.
*Note: You can dry and reuse the tears until there is no flavor or oils left. You can do this several times always adding a fresh tsp or two each time. Check out out Resin product page here
