Frankincense Boswellic Acid Resin Oil
Currently major studies are being conducted on the properties found in the frankincense family of oleo-gum-resins. Particularly with the Boswellic acids and AKBA, or acetyl-keto-beta-boswellic acid. Acids are heavy molecules called triterpenes, and while many beneficial compounds are light enough to separate themselves from the frankincense oleo-cum-resin when heated during the distillation process, the Boswellic acids are not. They make up the heavier resin portion. This is not to say that the essential oil of Frankincense is not a wonderful therapeutic oil with many valuable compounds and health benefits, but when it comes to the Boswellic acid content, it can only have trace amounts unless Boswellic acids were added to it manually and then it would no longer be an essential oil but an oleoresin. Phytochemicals in frankincense have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties which are helpful in relieving the symptoms of diseases such as arthritis, rheumatism, inflammatory bowel disease, and various cancers, ulcers, colitis, brain injuries, depression and much more. They are especially useful in creams, oils and salves to help rejuvenate the skin, increase elasticity, reduce wrinkles and signs of aging. Many of these healing compounds can be absorbed through the skin and are able to cross the blood-brain barrier.
The highest content of Boswellic acids are found in a few types of frankincense. We use Boswellia Sacra/Carterii. We process the whole oleo-resin in a water bath until all water-soluble portions are dissolved and only the pure resin remains. Our resin oil is made by dissolving the hardened resin in a jar in a water bath until it is a liquid then the organic extra virgin olive oil heating in another jar in the same water bath is slowly added and stirred into the resin. This process takes patience and is a labor of love. We wanted to create a product that was pure Boswellic acid and oil only. It is for both topical and internal use. Many studies have been done with the B-acids in reducing cancerous breast tumors, brain tumors, and swelling in the brain.
Frankincense has been around for centuries and is truly a magical sap with healing properties. New interest has been taken by medical researchers in clinically studying the benefits of affecting and curing certain cancers as well as alleviating anti-inflammatory related diseases.
