The woodsy, spicy fragrance of burning frankincense is synonymous with religious ceremony around the world and is commonly used in meditation practice. Many believe the resin inspires purification and centering of the mind, body and spirit. Five thousand years ago, a “frankincense trail” marked the route where the precious incense was shipped from Oman through Yemen and into Jordan.
Frankincense very much supports the body and mind because it works as an energy medicine. It affects our own energy field, and because that energy field is the link between our body and mind, it tends to stimulate the body and mind to move toward wellness.
It tends to put people in a supportive state where issues begin to rise out of the unconscious; on the level of mind and emotions, they begin to detox.
Resins will not ignite on their own and require charcoal for burning.
