*Why frankincense? Harvested by semi-nomadic people of Ethiopia, this exotic Ethiopian resin holds many healing powers. Frankincense has immune-enhancing abilities that may help destroy dangerous bacteria, viruses and even cancers. It can also help break up phlegm deposits in your respiratory tract and lungs, and can potentially relieve bronchitis-related congestion.
Why myrrh? Also harvested by semi-nomadic people of Ethiopia, this Ethiopian resin too holds many healing powers. Myrrh is anti-microbial, it does not allow microbes to grow or infect your system. It fights the viral infections that can cause colds and coughs, as well as relieving congestion, and reduces the deposition of phlegm in the lungs and respiratory tracts.
Herbal Oil Infusion
Gather a handful of leaves or dried herbs and place them in a jar, about half way. Cover the herbs with a liquid oil, such as: olive, sweet almond, sunflower, fractionated coconut oil are all suitable, obviously take into consideration the therapeutic properties you would like to get from the oils as well. (e.g. can use 70% olive and 30% baobab oil, moringa oil or marula oil).
Set the jar containing the oils and herbs down into a slow cooker filled with a few inches of water. Set the slow cooker on low and heat the oil for around 2 hours. Keep a close eye on things to make sure that the water doesn’t evaporate out of the pan.
You may also simply let the oil infuse on a sunny window sill for two weeks, or even longer.
Once your oil has completely finished infusing to your satisfaction and has been strained, pour into a glass tincture bottle and rub a few drops into your skin every day. If you have any mouth sores or infections, put on drop onto the injected area per day.
