This is a great article from cancertutor.com (it’s their article below). The capabilities of essential oils will come a s ahuge surprise to many – but we shouldn’e really be surprised. The ancients were not stupid, indeed they were often smarter than us. But I won’t ramble on – here;s the article extract:-
Are Essential Oils the Missing Link To Cancer Prevention?
Essential oils have long been used by various cultures as a natural remedy for virtually every disease, including cancer.
Up until now, they have been seen by most Americans as only useful for their pleasant smell, but that is now changing.
Up to 75% of people in the United States. use complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) on a regular basis, and many of these people do so in order to fight cancer. (1)
It won’t be too long when nearly 100% of Americans are giving sickness and disease the boot by focusing on true prevention!
And therapeutic grade essential oils are at the helm of this movement!
Frankincense And Cancer
According to research done by University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Associate Professor H.K. Lin, Ph.D., various species of frankincense (Boswellia) essential oil is unparalleled as a cancer solution.
Boswellia carteri induces bladder tumor cells, meaning that it targets cancerous cells by killing them and leaves the healthy cells alone. (2)
Boswellia sacramay be effective for advanced breast cancers as well as for cancer prevention. (3)
Boswellia sacrais a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment option for skin cancers like basal cell carcinoma. (4)
Boswellia carteri and Santalum album (sandalwood) both kill cancer, but do so in different ways, which suggests that the two taken together has a unique one-two punch strategy that is more effective than taken alone. (5)
The bottom line is this:
“We have demonstrated that frankincense essential oils prepared by hydrodistillation of gum resins from Boswellia species contain complex chemical constituents and possess anti-cancer activity. Frankincense essential oil activates arrays of genes and pathways that suppress the growth and induce the apoptosis of established human cancer cell lines of different tissue origins. Besides boswellic acids, frankincense essential oil-induced anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic activities in tumour cells may result from high-molecular-weight compound(s).
