The Frankincense tree is a scraggly but hardy tree which originates from Oman and the Middle East. By slashing the barks of the tree, a sticky, fragrant resin is produced from which the Frankincense Oil is derived.
Frankincense Oil, Olibanum Oil or Oil of Lebanon is a ancient essential oil used to support the immune system. It is also a valuable ingredient in skin care products for aging and dry skin. For centuries this oil has helped us harness the power of our own connection on a emotional, spiritual and mental level!
Useful for visualizing, improving one’s spiritual connection, and centering, it has comforting properties that help focus the mind and overcome stress and despair.
Frankincense is considered a holy oil in the Middle East and we know that it was given to Christ at the time of his birth. The uses and benefits of Frankincense date back way before the time of Christ to the Egyptians and Sumerians.
Today, we know through Chemistry that Frankincense contains sesquiterpenes that stimulate the part of the brain that controls emotions.
Frankincense oil has been used to awaken our spiritual awareness and connect with spirit for 5000 years or more. It will help us release parts of our ego which hold us back from connecting with our soul, as well as feelings of unworthiness and insecurity.
Once we are able to connect with our spiritual side, we can embrace our true purpose in the world and become more spiritually driven rather than ego driven.
Use Frankincense during meditation to connect with spirit and stay centered in meditation.
