frankincense2I have talked about frankincense in this blog before and the fact that it takes so long to harvest it. Well, now it seems that we may be running out of frankincense trees all together as well as people to farm and harvest the sap used for frankincense essential oil.

It would be a shame for us to lose frankincense essential oil in the name of progress. Frankincense forests are declining because of progress in areas such as agriculture and job growth or because other trees such as the Acacia tree grow faster and are taking over the forests.

Cancer begins when the DNA code in a cell becomes corrupted and shuts the cell down.┬áScientists have discovered that there is some agent in frankincense that can reset a cancerous cell and stop it from closing down. Wouldn’t it be awesome if we could get a cure for all the different cancers there are in the world from something so natural as an essential oil? That is a really good reason for finding a way to preserve the frankincense forests in the Middle East.
