Prep time: 10 mins
Total time: 10 mins
  1. Combine 1 Part Frankincense powder to 5 Parts Vodka.
  2. Close the lid and shake. Shake once daily for 8 weeks (It can last indefinitely if you forget it for a while).
  3. Sift through a cheese cloth or coffee filter and it's ready for use. You may need to let it settle for a day or so and re-sift, but I usually don't worry about extras on the bottom.
To Use
  1. Talk to your doctor, as frankincense may possibly interfere with some medications. If he or she says it is ok, you may use this in tea or coffee, 1 tsp. at a time. Pay attention to your body.
