Frankincense is an aromatic resin used in incense and perfumes, obtained from trees of the genus Boswellia in the family Burseraceae, particularly Boswellia Boswellia sacra (syn. B. bhaw-dajiana), B. carterii, B. frereana, B. serrata (B. thurifera, Indian frankincense), and B. papyrifera. The word is from Old French franc encens (‘high-quality incense’).
Frankincense has a “magical” reputation – especially in the Middle East – believed to enhance communication. There are over 52 references to it in the Bible. In Ayurvedic medicine, Frankincense has been used for arthritis, rheumatism, bronchitis, asthma, dysentery, diarrhoea, jaundice, inflammatory skin diseases and ulcers.
Actions include: anti-inflammatory, expectorant, diuretic, analgesic, antibiotic, antifungal, anti-arthritic.
Frankincense has a pleasant, sweet and woody odor.
Sacred to the Sun God Ra, frankincense is burned in rites of exorcism, purification, and protection. Its use is said to accelerate spiritual growth and to eliminate unwanted influences. The scent inspires one to reach one’s highest spiritual potential.
