In traditional Indian (Ayurvedic) medicine, the gum resin is used for
fevers, rheumatism, obesity and skin and nervous disorders. The
essential oil is used to treat chronic ulcers, ringworm and menstrual
pain. The anti-inflammatory properties of Frankincense serrata make it
idea for joint pain and for menstrual pain. Add 2-3 drops in a
tablespoon of carrier oil and apply where needed. Diffusing Frankincense serrata during medication creates a meditative environment.
