March 27, 2018

The benefits of frankincense oil can be obtained by topical application, inhalation via a diffuser or vaporizer, or by ingesting it in small amounts. For pain relief, massage the oil into the affected area. Using a diffuser, vaporizer, or inhaler works for the treatment of colds, coughs, and other respiratory conditions and blockages. Frankincense can be applied directly to the skin in most cases, or can be blended with carrier oils such as jojoba, coconut, or almond oils. Most packaging and labelling will describe whether or not that particular blend of oil will require dilution. When taking frankincense oil internally, it is best to dilute it in an edible carrier oil (such as coconut), or in a teaspoon of honey, in a glass of water, or in any non-acidic, non-dairy beverage. You can also put a drop or two beneath your tongue. It is thought that rubbing a few drops of the oil into the soles of the feet each day will help to strength

VITAMIN C

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is essential for the growth, repair, and development of all body tissues. It plays a key role in many bodily functions including the formation of collagen, absorption of iron, functions of the immune system, and the maintenance of bone health. Its antioxidant properties allow this Vitamin to protect the body against damage caused by free radicals*, toxic chemicals, and pollution. Unlike most other mammals, the human body is not capable of making Vitamin C itself, and so must be ingested via food or supplements in the form of tablets, capsules, drink mixes, and crystalline powders. Because Vitamin C is not stored in the body and excess amounts are secreted, there is no danger of overdose, making it one of the safest supplements to take. If too much Vitamin C intake happens to occur, symptoms such as stomach irritation, nausea, and diarrhea may be present. Vitamin C deficiency is rare and can lead to scurvy in extreme cases, which is a condition characterized by dry skin, weakness, anemia, bleeding, bruising, gum disease, and loose teeth.
