Read a lot about the antibacterial properties of oils but not sure if they also kill the good ones as well. Anyone know?

In the words of Eric, owner of ananda apothecary, "In every single anti-cancer laboratory study, Frankincense essential oil has caused the death of cancer cells, while leaving healthy cells unaffected at the same concentration.

And if there's a 'single' oil I most love to diffuse, it too is Frankincense. All three varieties are great - very unique in aromas, yet all have been positively researched for their anti-cancer properties. More than likely, there's more to Frankincense's health benefits than just its anti-cancer activity - it has been called "THE immune system modulator" by one prominent aromatherapist, meaning it would stimulate the immune system into action if necessary. And it offers many a very soothing, grounding aroma."
