The effect of Frankincense (Boswellia frereana) in sobering

I attended a Christmas dinner, and got half drunk. I then applied Frankincense (Boswellia frereana) oil (1/4 tsp olive oil, 1 drop of essential oil) every 15 minutes twice on my forehead, temples, tip of the nose, area between the mouth and the nose, back of the neck, and shoulders; I also drank some hot green tea. I sobered up, and was clearheaded.

I used to have motion sickness when somebody gave me a ride. To prevent motion sickness, the usual practice is to use Ginger (Zingiber officinale) essential oil for topical application and inhaling. I also tried Frankincense (Boswellia frereana) [1/4 tsp olive oil, and 1 drop of essential oil] — on the same areas (apply several times or as necessary when needed), and it worked great.

Frankincense can clear the mind and elevate the spirit. It keeps your spirit strong, focused, and positive. I used to take a nap after my breakfast, but today (Dec 15), I didn’t have to. Since I have back acne, and I am using frankincense to clear them with carrier oil. The whole process of application was rejuvenating. The inhalation of frankincense made me feel great and energetic about myself. As frankincense can achieve this objective, I suspect the application of it can relieve symptoms of mental illness. More research is needed to validate the claim.

The information or research about Bowswellia frereana are very limited. Known as the King of Frankincense, Bowswellia frereana is usually imported from Somalia. The therapeutic properties of Bowswellia frereana are anti-inflammatory, uplifting, revitalizing, and centering. It is also used for joint health.

According to Stillpoint Aromatics (2014), Boswellia frereana is composed mainly of the chemistry of alpha thuyene, delta sabinene and para cymene – they are related to monoterpenes. It also carries the characteristics of monoterpenes such as antiviral, antibacterial, analgesic, and so on. Because of a high content of alpha thuyene, Boswellia frereana, the aroma of the essential oil is more pungent.

People usually equate Boswellia frereana with Boswellia carterii. From my experience, the latter is milder, and more calming. The invigorating effect of the former can make up stay awake all the night.

Bowswellia frereana still leaves much room for aromatherapists to research in its clinical applications. However, it brings the Frankincense family to another height as there are still many to explore.

    Whether it’s the side-quests or the story quests, it’s far easier to
    get things completed when in a party. Armor variety will be familiar to players of the
    “Elder Scrolls” games. Game Director Matt Firor recently wrote ESO players who purchased and activated their PC or MAC copy of Elder Scrolls Online before June 30 of last year are “eligible for The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited with account copy. Understand these pros and cons to understand that the ranger is a great character for more advanced players who prefer to play on their own. Each individual game has had lore go pretty in-depth about each races, which there never seemed to lack of. This guide will show the best weapons in the hit game Call of Duty: World at War. Set in the contastly shifting world of Pendor, Po – P has some of the most challenging gameplay around. Akimbo MINI-UZIs are pretty powerful and are a popular choice online. When the transfer happens, all of your characters will be copied to the destination of your choice, and they’ll bring all their equipment, inventory items, and everything in their bank,” Firor
