- Edgar Cayce Product
- Soothes Canker Sores
- Aromatherapy Ingredient
Benzoin helps form a coating over wounds particularly for protecting recurring canker sores.
Edgar Cayce recommended Benzoin for a wide variety of applications, most often as an ingredient in massage oil formulas and breathing formulas.
The resin or gum from the benzoin tree is used as an aromatic in perfumes. Medicinally, benzoin has been used as an antiseptic treatment for dry, cracked skin and as an expectorant for respiratory conditions such as severe bronchitis. A tincture made from benzoin added to a vaporizer has been prescribed for croup. The resin, also called gum benjamin, ranges in color from pale yellow to red brown and is harvested by making incisions into the tree's bark to establish a flow, which then hardens into lumps.
Edgar Cayce Health Care Philosophy
" ... At any period when there are severe reactions, it will be helpful to have the burning of certain fumes in the room - as in a croup cup or boiling water. To a pint of boiling water, put half an ounce of Compound Tincture of Benzoin. Just breathe the air or the fumes from this - it will be helpful."
" ... Have a general massage using an equal combination of Olive Oil and Compound Tincture of Benzoin, over those portions of the limb and along the spine. This will not only aid in quieting the body but the absorption of these properties will stimulate the better circulatory forces, with the suggestive forces as to the activity of the flow of circulation in the system - and thus quieting the nerves, stimulating the ganglia. And especially make this stimulation, through the massage, in the areas of the upper dorsal and across the lumbar and sacral, as well as the limbs - or those centers from which impulses for nerve and blood supply are received for circulatory forces to the limbs."
"I had a canker sore in my mouth and for at least 3 days it bothered me. I'm a flight attendant and I mentioned it to another flight attendant and she told me about this stuff she uses from you. She gave me a sample of it and within 24 hours it was better." - K.C., Hattiesburg, MS
