“Natural Forces Within Us Are The True Healers” ~ Hippocrates


By  Phylameana lila Desy

When you are thinking about your chakra system you probably aren't considering the types of foods that you consume. Because our chakras are energy vortexes and invisible to most of us one might well imagine that chakras would thrive on energy, prayer, or other such spiritual stuff... you know, those things that we can't see with the human eye.

However, the chakras cannot sustain our human body without our help. It is important to feed and nourish the flesh in order to help support and fuel our energy body. Whenever one or more of your chakras is misaligned you might do well to review your diet choices to see if you are not eating or possibly overeating the foods that fuel that particular chakra.

Check out the foods under each of the seven primary chakras in this step-by-step tutorial to help you determine how your current diet might be deficient or over-indulgent. We can do our part in helping bring balance to our chakras by eating a balanced diet.

The doctor of the future will be oneself.― Albert Schweitzer



Frankincense was brought to Europe by the Crusaders. The franc in its name refers to the quality, not the French. Commonly known as frankincense to westerners, the resin is known as olibanum, in Arabic al-lubān, meaning “that which results from milking” or “the product resulting from milking the boswellia tree.” It’s spiritual properties make it another one of the best spiritual essential oils.

Its name originates from:

Latin: Boswellia carterii Spanish: El incienso French: Franc encens English: Frankincense Gender: Masculine Element: Fire Ruling Planet: Sun

Property Description

Anti-inflammatory, astringent, tonic, anti-septic, disinfectant, digestive, diuretic, expectorant, cicatrisant, carminative, cytophylactic, emenagogue, uterine, and vulnerary.


Many bodily systems, including the digestive, respiratory, nervous, and excretory systems can also be helped by frankincense essential oil. It aids the absorption of nutrients and strengthens the immune system.

Frankincense essential oil has been found useful for certain health conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, stomach ulcers, asthma, breaking up phlegm, and helping digestive disorders by stimulating gastric juices and bile production. The antiseptic qualities of this medicinal and spiritual essential oil can help prevent bad breath, cavities, toothaches, mouth sores, and other infections.

Frankincense essential oil often regulates estrogen production in women and reduces the risk of post-menopausal tumor or cyst formation in the uterus (uterine cancer). It also can regulate the menstrual cycle of premenopausal women.

Frankincense essential oil is being studied for its potential to treat cancer. Scientists have observed that there’s an agent in this well-known spiritual essential oil that not only stops cancer from spreading, but also induces cancerous cells to close themselves down. Immunologist Mahmoud Suhail is hoping to open a new chapter in the history of frankincense.

“Cancer starts when the DNA code within the cell’s nucleus becomes corrupted,” Dr. Suhail says. “It seems frankincense has a re-set function. It can tell the cell what the right DNA code should be.”

In a series of clinical and laboratory studies over the last two decades, frankincense and myrrh have shown promise in addressing a number of common disorders. Frankincense has been investigated as a possible treatment for some cancers, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, anxiety, and asthma, among other conditions. If these ancient remedies can indeed provide relief for the many patients who suffer from these potentially devastating illnesses, the great incense roads of antiquity may flourish once again with the help of these strengthening and spiritual essential oils.

The concern among some in the scientific community is the presence of boswellic acid, which is not present in Frankincense essential oil, only in frankincense extracts, which contain 40 to 60 percent of boswellic acid. Robert Tisserand writes:

“If you are looking for a natural substance to help prevent or treat cancer, frankincense oil should not be your first choice. Look instead to turmeric/curcumin, to cannabis/cannabinoids, to garlic/garlic oil, and to frankincense extract, which is sold in capsule form. Following that, I would consider essential oils of cinnamon bark, lemongrass, citronella, turmeric, orange, lemon and bergamot.”

My advice is to work with a qualified aroma therapist before trying any of these methods. Only time and research will tell us what the future of essential oils are in the cure for cancer. I am looking forward to seeing more results.


Frankincense, (commonly referred to as olibanum), Boswellia carteri comes from the Boswellia genus trees, particularly Boswellia sacra and Boswellia carteri. After the milky white sap is extracted from the tree bark, it is allowed to harden for several days into a gum resin, after which it is scraped off in perfect tear-shaped droplets.

Frankincense is traditionally burned as incense and was charred and ground into a powder to produce the heavy kohl eyeliner by ancient makeup artists and applied to upper class Egyptian women and royalty that classic artwork and Hollywood movies have portrayed. When the resin is steam-distilled, it produces an aromatic essential oil with a bounty of benefits. In ancient Egypt, frankincense was revered as the sweat of the gods—without a doubt, this is a sacred and spiritual essential oil.

Remarkably, frankincense resin is edible and is used in traditional medicines in Africa and Asia for digestion and healthy skin. For internal consumption, it is recommended that frankincense be translucent, with no black or brown impurities. It is often light yellow with a (very) slight greenish tint. It is often chewed like gum but is stickier.

In Ayurvedic medicine frankincense (Boswellia serrata) is commonly referred to in India as “dhoop,” and has been used for hundreds of years as a medicinal and spiritual essential oil for treating arthritis, healing wounds, strengthening the female hormone system and purifying the air.

The Greek historian Herodotus was familiar with frankincense and knew it was harvested from trees in southern Arabia. He reported that the gum was dangerous to harvest because of the venomous snakes living in the trees. The method Arabs used to get around this problem was to burn the gum of the styrax tree letting off smoke that would drive the snakes away.

Recent studies have indicated that the worldwide frankincense tree populations are declining partly due to over-exploitation. Frequently tapped trees produce seeds that germinate at a rate of 16% while seeds of trees that had not been tapped germinate at a rate of more than 80%. In addition, burning, grazing and attacks by the longhorn beetle have reduced the tree population to an unsafe level of potential extinction.

Only responsible farmers who are conscientious about preservation and use sustainable methods for growing and harvesting will keep this sacred tree and it’s spiritual essential oil alive for generations to come. As a general rule when using natural products, we should patronize those growers and manufacturers who practice sustainability.

Common Uses for Frankincense Essential Oil

 Frankincense essential oil can also be used for relief from stings such as scorpion stings. Use 1 drop neat on the sting. Dilute if needed.

+ Use as a wrinkle relief (night or day) cream by adding a few drops of frankincense essential oil to the base cream or lotion of your choice.

+ Add frankincense essential oil to pure water and use as a toner or refresher. (You can add a drop or two of vodka to help it blend together.)

+ Place a few drops of frankincense essential oil on your washcloth and run it over yourself during your final shower (warm) rinse. The steam will infuse the frankincense essential oil and you get the benefit of a quick and refreshing, frankincensed steam bath.

+ If you want to enjoy a special indulgence, use frankincense essential oil in the bath and disperse it with almond, rice, or coconut milk. This breaks up this refreshing and spiritual essential oil and spreads it out in the water. Epsom salts also works well for the same dispersion purpose.

+ Treat dry skin by mixing a few drops of frankincense essential oil in a tsp. of carrier oil like sweet almond, pomegranate or carrot oil and massage it onto your face. + Treat wrinkles and the signs of aging by adding 2 drops of frankincense essential oil to your nightly moisturizing cream or lotion treatment. Add 1 to 2 drops of sandalwood essential oil for a richer treatment.

+ Reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars by mixing 2 drops of frankincense essential oil with 2 drops of lavender and 1 drop neroli in 1 T carrier oil and massage onto scar tissue.

+ For a revitalizing face serum mix 2 drops of frankincense essential oil, 2 drops of lavender in 1 oz. of carrier oil. Massage into skin using an upward motion.

+ Diffuse or inhale a few drops of this spiritual essential oil directly to lift your mood.

+ Mix a few drops of frankincense essential oil with double the drops of a carrier oil (jojoba is good) to strengthen hair roots.

+ Speed up the healing of cuts, acne, insect bites, and boils. After doing a patch test for safety, use a small drop of diluted frankincense essential oil on the pimple or bite.


Frankincense essential oil should not be used during pregnancy. Avoid using if the oil has oxidized.

Blends Well With:
Lemon, orange, bergamot, lavender, myrrh, sandalwood, other citrus oils, black pepper, basil, geranium, melissa, and vetiver essential oils.

Spiritual and Magical Uses

As a spiritual essential oil, frankincense promotes acceptance, emotional balance and stability, offers protection, fortitude, courage and resolution; increases introspection, spiritual awareness, and inspiration; is an aid in meditative practices and prayer work.

+ Frankincense essential oil can be used as an anointing oil used for ceremonies, rituals, and rites of passage.

+ Diffuse for meditation to access awareness and inspiration with this spiritual essential oil.

+ Honor ancestors by placing a drop of frankincense beneath their picture or near a keepsake.

+ Amulets coated with frankincense essential oil can be used as protection.

“To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise, we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.” — Buddha


By Lindsey Benson

The modern world is full of a lot of physical pain due to inaction and hard labor. Inflammation is rampant from the food we eat, the drinks we drink, and most people’s lack of physical activity. We live comfortable lives, which leads to the creation of more anxiety. We have excess physical energy and not enough mental energy, which increases pain and inflammation. When you are struggling with inflammation, physical discomfort, or symptoms of anxiety, below are some natural remedies you can try.


Ginger is a root vegetable that works magic. It benefits you in several different ways. In addition to calming your body and mind, it helps your digestive system process food. It is known for lowering pain and inflammation, but recently it has been touted for its ability to mitigate anxiety. Ginger is a healing agent overall. It provides a method for healing for those who have stomach issues, muscle pain, inflamed parts of the body, or the physical symptoms of anxiety. Whatever you are trying to get rid of, make some ginger tea, a smoothie, eat it with your meals, or take it in a supplement.


Turmeric is very similar to ginger in the way that it is used as a ground spice in food. The bright orange powder is good for heart health, physical pain, inflammation, and the nervous system. Anxiety is mitigated by turmeric. The best part of this spice is that it can be used in food, made into a smoothie, or taken as a supplement. It even improves blood pressure and can help fight diseases like Alzheimer’s. Turmeric is an amazing resource that should be used for all of its health benefits. 


CBD, otherwise known as cannabidiol, is a chemical found in the cannabis plant. It is not the chemical that results in the feelings of intoxication. Instead, this chemical has healing and calming powers that are significant. You can buy CBD if you are trying to mitigate anxiety, stress, and depression. But you can also purchase these products if you are struggling with pain, stomach issues, inflammation, or lack of appetite. CBD has a calming effect overall that can also facilitate sleep. It has become very popular for its holistic effects. In time, more will be revealed about the healing powers of CBD.

Cold Plunge

A trend these days is to do a cold plunge because it heals and facilitates many things in the body. First, the cold plunge forces blood to circulate around the body, providing all kinds of benefits. Taking a cold plunge reduces pain in the joints and inflammation in the whole body. It also helps the muscles when they are sore. Furthermore, when you take a cold plunge, you have a positive feeling when you get out. This can help reduce depression and anxiety. Cold plunges have become popular for a reason, they have a lot of benefits.

Drink Less

One of the worst things that we do in our society is drink too much alcohol. Alcohol is widely accepted, even though it leads to all sorts of mental and physical health complications. First, drinking too much alcohol is just about the worst thing you can do for your anxiety. While the initial feelings you get from drinking alcoholic beverages alleviates anxiety, in the long-term it makes it worse. You probably know that feeling when you wake up hungover and the anxiety is overwhelming. That’s what is happening in the long-term. Drinking also increases inflammation and can prolong physical pain.

Exercise More

The answer to so many things in life is to be more active. Today, we live sedentary lives with foods full of sugar, carbohydrates, and trans fats. We need to exercise even more than we would if we were eating better. Of course, diet and exercise go hand-in-hand, but if you are working out frequently you will decrease inflammation, pain, and anxiety. You will have a clearer mind and a better way of looking at the world. Exercise is instrumental.

Pain, inflammation, and anxiety are often related, but not always. When it comes to the modern world, there are plenty of natural remedies to combat these things. If you are struggling with any one or multiple of these ailments, you should give these remedies a shot as soon as possible.
