Reasons of Using Frankincense Incense
Frankincense is a shrubby tree that is native to hot, dry, desert climates. The resin of this fascinating plant — native to India, Oman, Ethiopia, Somalia, Yemen, and Saudi Arabia — has been used for over 5,000 years. It has been highly regarded as a medicine, an aromatic perfume, and was once worth even more than gold.
Perhaps you are familiar with the scent of frankincense incense — often burned as incense in religious ceremonies. Or perhaps you are more familiar with the essential oil — sometimes it referred to as Olibanum. The oil is commonly used in aromatherapy for soothing chronic stress and anxiety, reducing pain and inflammation, and boosting immunity.
Burning this incense is common in religious and spiritual rituals for purification, meditation, spiritual protection and to enhance spiritual development (psychic energy). The sweet scent is immediately calming and brings about a sense of peace and connection to one's soul and Source.
With a rich, calming fragrance our Frankincense incense sticks are a wonderful addition to any room, as well as being a traditional component to many spells and prayers. As such, they are most of the times used in spells of protection, purification, and healing.
