About Frankincense: Frankincense is a resin extracted from the bark of a boswellia tree which grows without soil out of polished marble rocks. The resin that oozes from trees and plants is either clear or translucent and has a yellowish or brownish substance. Frankincense resin is light yellow, and hardens quickly after being extracted from the tree. The frankincense globules are scraped off and distilled for the essential oil. It's medium strength balsamic aroma is a cross between spicy and fruity with a fresh woodiness to it.
Benefits of Frankincense: Frankincense has proven anti-inflammatory properties and can ease many aches and pains, clear the lungs (ie bronchitis), act as a skin tonic to revive aging skin, heal wounds and sores, reduce skin inflammation, as well as calm and soothe the whole body and mind.
Check out this clip from an article published in Science Daily:
"ScienceDaily (July 31, 2008) — An enriched extract of the 'Indian Frankincense' herb Boswellia serrata has been proven to reduce the symptoms of osteoarthritis. Research published today in BioMed Central's open access journal Arthritis Research & Therapy has shown that patients taking the herbal remedy showed significant improvement in as little as seven days."
This is a testament to the power of natural herbs used for combating sickness and providing alternative pain relief.
Frankincense can be diffused, used in a vaporizer, blended with massage oil, added as a lotion base, and diluted in bath water.
Therapeutic grade Frankincense can be obtained from Young Living (shop with distributor # 1066504). Young Living has chosen a vendor in northern Africa near the Arabian Peninsula as its primary source for frankincense. D. Gary Young has found the frankincense from northern Africa to be the truest form of Biblical frankincense.

The third essential oil in our "7 Essential oils for Pain Relief" series is therapeutic grade pine essential oil. Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine was one of the first to evaluate the properties of Pine. It has been discovered that Pine is a natural analgesic and a very effective natural remedy for joint pain associated with rheumatism and arthritis.
A testament to the effectiveness of pine for pain relief can be attributed to that of the Swiss. In Switzerland, mattresses are filled with pine needles to help ease pain associated with rheumatism. Oh and how about this. . . Native Americans used pine needles in their mattresses to repel lice and fleas - another benefit of pine.
Pine has a refreshing and invigorating aroma so while you are experiencing its analgesic properties, you can enjoy it's aromatic fragrance. It shares many of the same properties as Eucalyptus globulus essential oil and the action of both oils is enhanced when they are blended.

The next targeted alternative to alleviating pain on our list is a proprietary blend of powerful therapeutic grade essential oils called Deep Relief Roll On manufactured by Young Living. Deep Relief is formulated to relieve muscle soreness and tension resulting from injury and fatigue.
My husband periodically suffers from back and shoulder pain due to an old injury. We were given a complimentary bottle of Balsam Firm with one of our past essential oil purchases. Boy, I'm glad we received this. Honestly, it sat in the box for a while because we didn't have any need for it initially. Then my husband pulled a muscle in his neck and shoulder after a battle with the bumper cars at Playland! My 6 foot 2 husband was nearly in tears from the pain. He took an Advil (which of course I was not too happy with since I prefer safer, alternative methods) and still he was in pain. So, I remembered the Balsam Fir and suggested he try it. He was amazed at how well it worked and now I've got him on my side to using alternative pain relievers instead of popping a pharmaceutical drug stuffed with chemicals.
Deep Relief is formulated with the following therapeutic grade essential oils: Balsam fir, peppermint, wintergreen, and copaiba. This essential blend plays an integral part in giving Deep Relief the ability to help ease tight and sore muscles. Deep Relief is available in a portable roll-on applicator, making natural relief available anywhere.
Here's a little more detail on Young Living's Balsam Fir: The oil was recently harvested on Young Living's own Balsam Fir Farm and contains optimal levels of four important constituents: alpha pineane, beta pineane, camphene, and limonene, which gives it many of its soothing characteristics.
