Has anyone tried chewing frankincense? Quoting: pool
The following is very mystical and not related to the topic so ignore this if uninterested and go on to the next post.
Frankincense is part of an ancient tradition in the East. It doesn't grow in the USA so we have little information on using it here. Herbalists use the locally gathered herbs typically since that is practical. Because of overuse, we might actually cause extinction of it.
When burned, it releases powerful phytochemicals. People used it to get closer to God. I believe that I feel closer to God when doing that. It is a very special herb and should be reserved for that because we have so few trees of it.
We know it has powerful medicinal properties for digestion, potentially for female medicine, most certainly to remove inflammation particularly in arthritis, and I would bet is sort of a miracle. I'm not joking.
I would urge caution in ingesting it. People often use things that are incredibly powerful and don't realize what they might do.
