Frankincense and Myrrh Clinical Research Studies
Below we review and summarize clinical research studies on frankincense and myrrh and their effectiveness for various usages.
Summary of research studies and final thoughts.
There are many convincing frankincense and myrrh research studies completed for anti-cancer, nerve pain relief, arthritis relief and there are also studies supporting topical treatments for many daily uses like oral care, under arm hygiene, rash relief and accelerated wound healing. The common property of all these uses seems to be frankincense and myrrh's ability to calm inflammation.
Frankincense and myrrh essential oils can be taken orally or topically. Cancer studies support ingested treatments. However, for antibacterial and many healing purposes, they should be used topically. They are easily absorbed through the skin, but should be diluted with a carrier oil to penetrate and "carry" the essential oils deep through the skin.
Frankincense and myrrh have been combined as a pair for thousands of years, and studies demonstrate their combination has a synergistic effect when compared to using them separately.
Drug companies are extracting and researching effective compounds from frankincense and myrrh called sesquiterpenoids. This process can also help make a patentable drug. They are not able to patent simple frankincense and myrrh because it's freely available in nature.
Above we are referencing clinical research on independent ingredients of frankincense and myrrh essential oils to help understand the effectiveness for their many uses. The studies were not conducted on Wise Men Healing Balm. Wise Men Healing Balm has not been evaluated by the FDA. It is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
