Frankincense and Turmeric Oils for Inflammation

Filed under: Inflammation — Tags: , , — Gail @ 6:54 am

Jordan Rubin and Dr Josh Axe have been discussing Turmeric and Frankincense oils for the control of inflammation. The medical community is now finding more and more evidence that inflammation is the basis behind most diseases. Here is some point some information about each oil and a great video:

Dr. Axe believes that supporting healthy cells and a healthy immune system are key to overall health, which is why frankincense essential oil in general is one of the staples in his personal health routine.

Frankincense essential oil is a common essential oil used to help support a healthy response to stress as well as to support a healthy response to inflammation and for supporting a healthy immune system.

Frankincense can inhibit the production of key inflammatory molecules associated with conditions like arthritis, asthma, painful bowel disorders like IBS and many more conditions. It can be useful in helping prevent the breakdown of the cartilage tissue and has been shown to significantly reduce levels of dangerous and painful inflammation, making it a natural treatment option for pain-related conditions that affect the muscles, joints and tendons.

FRANKINCENSE TRINITY USES:

  • Apply frankincense to the bottoms of feet for a soothing, relaxing experience.
  • Diffuse during yoga or meditation to focus your intention for the day.
  • Add a drop of frankincense to a moisturizer to smooth the skin.
    Following a day of activity, massage frankincense into hands and feet for a warming, soothing effect.
  • Topically and with a carrier oil, use frankincense oil on areas that need extra attention, such as muscles or joints.
  • When in a dry climate, apply frankincense in order to maintain healthy-looking fingernails.
  • To consume as a supplement, dilute one drop in four ounces of water, and consume.

Turmeric is also known for its anti inflammatory properties.

Turmeric oil is derived from turmeric, which is well-known for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-microbial, anti-malarial, anti-tumor, anti-proliferative, anti-protozoal and anti-aging properties. Turmeric has a lengthy history as a medicine, spice and coloring agent. Turmeric essential oil is an extremely impressive natural health agent just like its source — one that appears to have some of the most promising anti-cancer effects around.

Traditionally, turmeric has been used in Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic medicine to treat arthritis since turmeric’s active components are known to block inflammatory cytokines and enzymes. That’s why it’s known as one of the best essential oils for arthritis around.

Studies have shown turmeric’s ability to help reduce pain, inflammation and stiffness related to rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. One study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry evaluated the anti-arthritic effects of turmeric essential oil and found that crude turmeric essential oil given orally at a dose that would correspond to 5,000 milligrams per day in humans had a modest anti-inflammatory effect on the joints of animal subjects.

TURMERIC OIL USES:

  • Add a drop to tea for a warming experience.
  • Dilute one drop of turmeric oil in four ounces of water.
  • Add a few drops to a carrier oil and massage into desired areas needed comfort, such as joints or muscles.
  • For a boost to your favorite foods, add a drop to them for a turmeric twist.
  • Diffuse a drop or two. Turmeric oil blends well with clary sage, ginger and ylang ylang.

15 Omega-3 Foods Your Body Needs Now

There are actually three different types of “omega-3s”: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). The […]
