Precious Treasures

Frankincense & Myrrh

The Wise Men’s Gifts

to the Christ Child 

 

Each December many Americans faithfully celebrate the birthday of the Christ Child as Christmas.  They faithfully read and retell the story of wise men who travelled a far distance to bring precious gifts to the long awaited babe.   

 

These gifts are commonly described as gold, frankincense & myrrh.  But alas, the meaning behind the choice of these items as being the ultimate gifts that wise men would bestow upon someone so revered that they would make a long difficult journey just to have the honor of presenting them is not often told.

 

Have you ever wondered why a just born babe who was destined to be their king would be given these gifts?

 

Because we are familiar with the value of gold as buying power, gold may seem like an obvious gift for a king.

But frankincense & myrrh’s value and usage is no longer common knowledge. 

 

The wise men’s choices were designed to bless their newborn king with

the most valued possessions possible to give:  Health and Wealth

 

Frankincense tears or resin, and essential oil comes from the Frankincense Boswellia tree.  It was and still is hand harvested from old trees that are highly valued in the area.  Egyptians used the incense to fumigate their homes, for ritual incense and the oil for cosmetics. It was used as a holy anointing oil and as a general cure-all for all diseases.  History shows it was used for embalming and as a perfume and formed an important part of the Sabbath day offering. Frankincense is mentioned in the Scriptures over 50 times

The actions of frankincense include anti-inflammatory, anti-tumoral, immune-stimulant, antidepressant and muscle relaxing. It stimulates the limbic system as well as the hypothalamus, pineal and pituitary glands. It is strongly anti-viral, antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial, antiseptic and expectorant oil. Frankincense has the ability to relax and revitalize at the same time. It helps bring emotional balance and improved brain function.  It has been used singly or in blends for pain management both topically and orally.

A Chinese study conducted in 2000 indicated that Boswellia has "anti-carcinogenic and anti-tumor activities." These boswellic acids from frankincense inhibited "a variety of malignant cells" in people suffering from leukemia and brain tumors. The Cancer Research Institute of the University of Nevada treated cervical cancer with frankincense, in which "there was 72% inhibition and growth of non-cancerous cells." Other studies have shown that boswellic acids from frankincense exert antiproliferative activity toward a variety of malignant cells.

Scientists have observed that there are active properties within frankincense which stops cancer spreading, and which induces cancerous cells to close themselves down. 

"Cancer starts when the DNA code within the cell's nucleus becomes corrupted," he says. "It seems frankincense has a re-set function. It can tell the cell what the right DNA code should be.

"Frankincense separates the 'brain' of the cancerous cell - the nucleus - from the 'body' - the cytoplasm, and closes down the nucleus to stop it reproducing corrupted DNA codes."

Why Hasn't the General Public Heard about This? It sounds incredulous but the anti-cancerous effects of frankincense and myrrh has been known for thousands of years. Does it work for everyone? No, but compared to the side effects of chemotherapy, frankincense DOES show great promise now and in the future. Frankincense or Myrrh will likely never be promoted for the breakthrough that it is because there is no pharma money to be made in its promotion. Frankincense and Myrrh are expensive in comparison to other therapeutic grade oils but "cheap" in comparison to drugs like chemotherapy. 

Myrrh tears, gum or resin, and essential oil comes from the Myrrh Commiphora myrrha trees and shrubs.  Long before the Christ child arrived, myrrh was one of the most desired and most expensive items in the world.  It was used as incense in religious rituals, as an embalming agent, and as a cure for many diseases including what is now called cancer, leprosy, and syphilis.  Mixed with coriander and honey it was used to treat herpes.

The actions of myrrh include anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antiturmor, astringent, and tonic.  It has been used for skin ailments, thyroid imbalances, inflammation, stretch marks, thrush, candida, gum infections, prostate congestion, wounds, and cancer.

Chi-Tang Ho of the Department of Food Science, Rutgers University inspired by his late wife who died of cancer is working with chemists there and colleagues at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and Osaka City University, Japan. The researchers have discovered a property of an extract from myrrh that could make it far more precious than the other two original Christmas gifts - it is a potent anticancer compound.
  The researchers have shown that a sesquiterpenoid from myrrh kills breast tumor cells in the laboratory, even those that resist current anticancer drugs. "I'm optimistic that this compound can be developed into an anticancer drug," says Rutgers team member Mohamed Rafi, although he concedes that the compound is yet to be tested in animals or humans.
