Frankincense ( Olibanum Resin Incense ) Siftings Incense Resins from Boswellia sacra trees (commonly known as frankincense or olibanum-tree) that belongs to the Burseraceae family.
It’s usually harvested by “tapping” the tree and thereby extracting the sap. Frankincense is a very popular resin used for incense, perfume, and aromatherapy.
Its often used in incense sticks/cone making because it can be mixed with almost any herb so it’s one of the popular resins for incense sticks/cone making.
If you want to simply enjoy this incense resin, please note that you will need a heat-resistant container and charcoal tablets to burn the siftings over so you can’t just lit a fire directly on them as you do to normal incense sticks, incense cones, or to candles so be aware.
*Since these are natural gum resin pieces, please be aware that some of the resin chips might have tree(wood) particles inclusions* and shapes/forms of resin chunks(chips) vary ( some are large chunks and some are small pieces).
Frankincense has gained great fame and popularity in recent years, and its use has varied, but what are the benefits of drinking frankincense infusion on an empty stomach?
Benefits of drinking frankincense gum soaked on an empty stomach
Frankincense has been used for frankincense over many years in folk medicine recipes, and its use has varied, starting with chewing it as it is, using the oil extracted from it, burning it as incense, and inhaling it, and finally drinking it soaked.
Although there are not enough scientific studies confirming the many uses of frankincense gum, and that the frankincense used in some studies was in the form of pharmaceutical capsules containing concentrated proportions of it, this does not negate its many benefits.
The following is a mention of the potential benefits of drinking frankincense gum infusion on an empty stomach:
1. Possesses anti-inflammatory properties
Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, drinking frankincense soaked regularly on an empty stomach would contribute to the inhibition of some inflammatory enzymes in the body.
This, in turn, helps relieve inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis, and thus relieve the associated pain and improve the patient’s quality of life.
2. Strengthens immunity
Regularly drinking frankincense infusion on an empty stomach may improve the immune system’s response to foreign objects and infectious disease pathogens.
On the other hand, this may exacerbate the symptoms of autoimmune diseases, such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis and should be avoided in these cases.
3. Helps treat cancer
According to researchers at an American university, frankincense does not cause programmed cell death, unlike cancer treatment drugs.
Alternatively, frankincense may offer the following cancer-fighting benefits:
- Inhibiting the proliferation and spread of cancer cells.
- Reducing the risk of tumor formation.
- Facilitate the work of other cancer treatments.
- Reducing symptoms from cancer chemotherapy.
4. Improves skin health and complexion
Due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, drinking frankincense infusion on an empty stomach regularly may provide the following benefits for the skin:
- Reducing inflammation and irritation of the skin.
- Improving the appearance of wrinkles, spots and blemishes associated with aging.
- Enhance skin elasticity.
- Accelerate the healing of wounds that need a long time to heal.
5. Improvement of the digestive system
The use of frankincense has been associated with relieving gastrointestinal infections that cause many digestive problems, such as irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, and others.
In addition to containing boswellic acid and having anti-inflammatory properties, the benefits of regularly drinking frankincense infusion on an empty stomach can be as follows:
- Improving the efficiency and ability of the intestine to absorb nutrients.
- Reducing the symptoms of diarrhea, bloating and colic.
- Reduce the risk of stomach ulcers.
It is worth noting that it is necessary not to use the infusion of frankincense gum as a substitute for the drug treatments prescribed by the doctor, with the necessity of consulting the medical care provider or the pharmacist before using this type of treatment.
Preparation of frankincense gum soaked
Frankincense is edible, but when used for internal consumption i.e. orally, it is preferable to be transparent and free from black or brown impurities.
In order to obtain the benefits of drinking frankincense infusion on an empty stomach, a frankincense infusion can be prepared by following the following steps:
1 – Boil an amount of water equivalent to one cup for each piece of gum.
2 – Soak a piece of gum in boiling water in a container with a lid.
3 – Leave it for a few hours or overnight, until it soaks and the water becomes cloudy or cloudy.
4 – Drink this infusion in the morning on an empty stomach.
Side effects of drinking frankincense gum infusion
According to a study published in the Indian Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences, there is no clarity regarding the safe and effective dosage of frankincense gum.
Therefore, it is recommended that you check with your doctor about the recommended dosage for a specific medical condition that you may have.
Here are some of the side effects that drinking gum soaked can cause for some, as revealed by the results of some clinical studies:
- stomach acidity.
- a headache.
- Abdominal pain.
- An increase in blood clotting.
- Stimulating or increase menstrual bleeding.
It is necessary to stress the necessity of avoiding its use by pregnant women because of the possibility that it may lead to miscarriage.
In addition, it should be avoided by breastfeeding women, as there is not enough scientific evidence to prove its safe use in this category.
