THE BEAUTY OF FRANKINCENSE

Frankincense, also called olibanum, is produced from the resin of the Boswellia tree. Frankincense is found in the dry, mountainous regions of India, Africa and the Middle East. Frankincense is characterized by a woody, spicy smell. It can be inhaled, absorbed through the skin, taken orally, and steeped into a tea.

 

POWERFUL BENEFITS

REDUCES PAIN & INFLAMMATION

A potent anti-inflammatory, Frankincense alleviates joint and muscle pain, fights against the breakdown of cartilage, boosts circulation, alleviates headaches, and soothes PMS symptoms.

REPAIRS SKIN & PROMOTES REPAIR

Like elixir in a bottle, Frankincense promotes skin cell regeneration and at the same time it tones, tightens, and lifts.  It works by getting rid of wrinkles, acne, dry patches, stretch marks, scars, sun spots, and even warts.

SOOTHES INSOMNIA

Frankincense can promote feelings of wellbeing and relaxation while fighting depression/anxiety and reducing heart rate.  Inhaling Frankincense, either through a diffuser, burning as incense, or directly from the bottle, is the fastest way to effect emotions.  Frankincense is usually used in spiritual practices to deepen meditation and expand consciousness.

How to burn incense resin on charcoal

1.       Put about 2” of ash or sand in incense burner.

2.       Hold charcoal puck with metal tongs and light thee edge until tiny sparks form.

3.       Put charcoal puck on top of ash or sand mound. Make sure you leave the edges exposed so air can flow around the charcoal.

4.       Let the charcoal sit for 3-5 minutes, until it glows red with heat and is covered with gray ash.

5.       Sprinkle a small amount of resin in the indention. ¼ to ½ teaspoon is okay, because more may smother the charcoal. Be careful not to touch the charcoal as it can heat up to 1500 degrees.

6.       Enjoy the scent and smoke of the burning Frankincense. You can add more resin as the smoke thins out. Charcoal puck can maintain its hotness level for up to 60 minutes. Do not discard for at least 2 hours so it can have enough time to cool. When discarding, use tongs to avoid burning your hands.
