Inhale and relax!
Frankincense, KING of the oils, was traded in the Arabian Peninsula for more than 5,000 years. It comes from the resin of the Boswellia tree. It is mentioned in the Torah/Old Testament in many instances and was a gift to Jesus in the New Testament along with gold and myrrh.
Frankincense can be found in Greek and Roman trade to China in mass amounts. Alain Touwaide of the Institute for Preservation of Medicinal Traditions and The Smithsonian Institute expands “we have textual and archaeological evidence that it was used for its antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic effects.”
The Wonders of Frankincense
Today it is widely used in skincare, Catholic churches, perfume, and the essential oil industry. Its molecular formula consists of terpenes able to cross the blood-brain barrier. Recent research is showing promising profound health benefits. For me, it’s all about the grounding, centering, and cellular support it provides. Inhale and relax!
