Now that we are home from the mountain top of the Young Living Convention, the question we are most asked is, “What was you favorite part.” As you might imagine that is a hard question to answer.
There were several excellent motivational talks from high level distributors such as Marcella Vonn Harding and from key note speakers such as Bob Procter. There was a moving talk in broken English by a Japanese member who told how she cared for her countrymen with essential oils during the recent tsunami. The new products announcement is always exciting. The breakout sessions were informative, the farm was fun, and Gary Young is always inspirational. But I’d have to say my favorite part this year was Dr. Mahmoud Suhail presenting his research on Boswellia Sacra, or Sacred Frankincense.
Dr. Suhail of Oman presented five observations that may change the art of healing.
Observation 1. Boswellia Sacra has proven health and wellness properties.
Observation 2. Boswellia Sacra crosses the blood-brain barrier.
Observation 3. Boswellia Sacra has been safely ingested by humans for centuries.
Observation 4. Boswellia Sacra exhibits amazing health related properties.
Observation 5. Unfortunately, I am prohibited by the FDA from relating Dr. Suhail’s specific findings.
Dr. Suhail began his research with a three step plan. Step 1: Optimize extraction methods of boswellia sacra using physical, not chemical, means. Step 2: Conduct in vitro and in vivo testing. Step 3: Conduct human clinical trials. Steps 1 and 2 are complete with positive results. This research is set to be published within weeks. Step 3, human clinical trials, will begin around the world and, hopefully, in the United States, later this year.
This exciting research was my favorite part of the convention because it testifies that the pure essential oils from Young Living are much more than nice smelling aromas. They are God’s gift to mankind. And science is finally catching on.
