Description

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.

The large Frankincense granules range in size from 8-20mm.

Our latest batch of Frankincense is a beautiful raw gum harvested from Boswellia carterii trees. Being a raw product it may have some natural impurities like small pieces of bark. There is nothing in it that can be harmful to you, but if you are going to ingest it, we recommend rinsing it with some water first.

Spiritual/Magical Use

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.
