You may have heard the hype about Frankincense Essential Oil curing cancer? Unfortunately, hype may be all it is. Although there are many testimonials, and articles, from those who swear by the anti-cancer capabilities of frankincense oil – particularly with regards to skin cancer – there are other, more effective essential oils and forms of natural treatment available.
