So I put it on my feet last night, undiluted, this morning woke up with abdominal cramps and diarrhoea. Could be totally unrelated but can’t think of anything I did different.

Anyone else experience this?

I apply it topically undiluted often with no issues

I was taking it internally (boswellia complex from mediherb) and I developed severe nausea. I was taking many other herbs at the time also. When i mentioned to my very experienced TCM doctor (from China), he gasped and said "That's a very strong herb, very hard on the digestion. I almost never recommend it as it's too strong".So i went off it and my nausea has disappeared. He also said tumeric can also have this effect in large doses but I haven't had problems with this.

Lots of things happen overnight - our bodies heal, we lose water, our organs are cleansing, all that. It could be any number of things - what you ate, how late you ate, how much water you had, stress. Sometimes digestion discomfort for me shows up a whole 24 hours later. The only scientific way to know if it's the frankincense is to try it again. If you have the same results, stop.
